I'm using ubuntu 12.04 64bit.
I tried to disable Pulseaudio and replace it with ALSA as the default sound in order to reduce xruns when recording audio in Ardour. I followed this guide: http://www.jeffsplace.net/node/12
I couldn't get past this part of the guide:That's because the package libsdl1.2debian won't allow the pulseaudio dummy to be installed. The libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio package is packed into the entire libsdl1.2debian package, so I can't uninstall the libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio separately.sudo dpkg -i libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio-dummy_1.0_all.deb
Is there any newer method to disabling pulseaudio in order to reduce xruns? I tried to undo the pulseaudio disabling attempt because banshee and rhythmbox no longer play music...there seems to be no way to configure them to use ALSA.
