A Replace Dialogue box will come up. (see attachment)
In the Search For:
In the Replace With:Code:icon = self.window.set_icon_from_file("/usr/share/icons/hicolor/16x16/apps/gnome-volume-control.svg")
Then click replace and then closeCode:icon = self.window.set_icon_from_file("/usr/share/icons/Humanity/apps/16/gnome-volume-control.svg")

Hi, I'm a Linux noob. I'm running 10.04 Lucid. I have sound working just fine... I'm currently listening to Rhythmbox. As soon as I enable the PulseAudio eq, I only get static when there's sound output. What could be causing this? Any solutions?
This is a bit off topic, and now I'm cross-posting (such a bad boy).
I'm trying to get a different ladspa filter inserted in my audiochain, and was encouraged when I saw how this (awesome) PulseAudio Eq script did it... however..
I'm obviously no linux genius.
trying to mimic this script by appending
to the end of either /etc/pulse/default.pa or ~/.pulse/default.paCode:### BEGIN: Compressor configuration load-module module-ladspa-sink sink_name=ladspa_output.dyson_compress_1403.dysonCompress master=alsa_output.default plugin=dyson_compress_1403 label=dysonCompress control=0,1,0.5,0.99 set-default-sink ladspa_output.dyson_compress_1403.dysonCompress set-sink-volume alsa_output.default 65536 set-sink-mute alsa_output.default 0 ### END: Compressor configuration
in sound preferences, I now see a new output (LADSPA Plugin Dyson compressor on Internal Audio) but it doesn't seem to have any effect on the audio.
Any thoughts, is there a better way to accomplish this? I tried investigating how to make the eq script load this filter, but the script made my head spin (sans the green puke).
Thanks for any, I mean ANY, help.
EDIT: It works. I'm a dumb ***. Don't know why, but at some point this began to work correctly.
Now to get a limiter in line, (swh's fast_limiter won't work in pulse, maybe cmt's limit_rms)

Lucid 64bit - it worked "out of the box", but then came out one very big BUT. I mean there was some static and stuff on the background, but then totally unexpected things happened.
I have resample-method = src-sinc-best-quality setting in pulseaudio configuration and everything has worked without a glitch this far, but when I enabled the pulseaudio-equalizer and started to watch some more "demanding" video stuff, then in a few minutes my system was grinded to total halt with unstopping harddisk activity. I succeeded to zap my X-session, but still only way out was a reset button.
I tried this again with a little preparation and saw VLC going totally mad and eating up all 12 gigabytes of RAM in an instant - it then occured to me, that this previously observed harddisk activity was VLC eating up all swap space. This time I was able to save the system by zapping (Alt+SysRq+K) just in time.
It is kind of totally reproduceable, but system will be grinded to halt without quick intervention. When pulseaudio equalizer is not enabled, everything works without a problem.
I tried to put VLC to log to syslog, but did not found anything that could help.
I would never thought, that video or audio could eat up all resources on i7 machine like that in seconds...

Running v2.7 under Ubuntu 10.04 64-Bit.
Clicking on the checkbox for "Eq Enabled" and then clicking "Apply" causes the master system volume to be increased to maximum. This happens every time on my system.
The first time this happened to me I was playing a bass test mp3 in Audacious and one of my Altec Lansing subwoofers was physically damaged as a result.
I really liked that subwoofer.
This bug does not occur on a friend's laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 32-Bit.
If this has already been covered please point me to it. I tried reading through this entire thread but gave up far short of the 288th and final post.

I have noticed sound volume max out when changing eq settings and setting them on/off. Luckily I have a laptop which might not be as powerful as external speakers, but it has a subwoofer and it cost a bit of money So I`d hate for it to be blasted to death..
I dont change my eq settings much so I`ll live.
