    Please reply in my thread for queries relating to that guide.
    Ack, sorry, I got mixed up between guides and thought I had already done Part A

    Re: How To: The (almost) Perfect Pulse Audio Setup

    I followed the guide here and in completely jacked my audio. So I reversed it and went back to alsa which works 80% of the time. Problem I have now though is:

    1. When I log into gdm it fails the first time and works the 2nd.

    2. My audio buttons on my laptop no longer control my media players. And yes I reset them in keyboard shortcuts. Though the media button still opens vlc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Well I got the volume ones to work but the previous,next,play/pause,and stop buttons still don't work.

    What is KeyTouch and what kind of laptop do you have?

    It's a really cool app some guy wrote to tell Linux how to use the multimedia buttons on his comp.
    I have a Dell Inspiron 8600, but KeyTouch has tons of different keyboard models to choose from. It didn't have my exact one but I chose another Dell and it works fine.

    Doesn't seem to work for me. I'd like to get it back to how i had it which was working. Any clues from the original poster what I messed up?

    The good news is that there are backported fixes coming to Hardy soon, but I have created a guide that addresses these problems for those that cannot wait. Please see Part A & B of my guide here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4928900

    Also, people experiencing skipping with PulseAudio may find a solution from Part C.
    Hello, I followed your guide here, and while my videos are playing great again, I have no sound. That is no sound across the board.

    I have noticed that sound seems to be a massive problem with Ubuntu, even more so than video. Many of the video problems I had were solved with maybe 1 to 3 fixes. My printer was a piece of cake and I had no trouble at all with configuring USB devices.

    Sound right now is a major issue. I must have tried over a dozen fixes and nothing is working right.

    Just for the record this is what I have and what I want to do:

    My system

    Dell Dimension 4600 with 2.8ghz proc, 1.5gig ram, nVidia 5200 series video card with 256meg ram (I think...that is the ram, but I know it is a 5200 series card). Sound Card is a Sound Blaster X-Fi (currently configured to use OSS as ALSA will NOT work with this card).

    This is what I want to do:

    1) Basic functions such as internet surfing and emails, document creation. No problem there as most of these functions work natively with Ubuntu

    2) Gaming machine: My larger "heavy" games I am going to still rely on Windows XP, but I would like to use Ubuntu for older games and play native Linux games with. I am also into emulations.

    This is what I WANT to do:

    a) Emulators:

    Sega Genesis
    Atari 2600
    NES
    SNES
    N64
    DosBox

    b) Native Linux games (basically anything that comes along that I like)


    c) Some Windows emulations...so Wine has to work with sound too.


    The next part of the sound package is audio and video editing.

    These are the programs I need to work with sound:

    Audacity
    RoseGarden
    Ardour
    Cinelerra (this always did work with sound)
    Open Movie Editor


    I also want my internet to fully work with sound and video play back (which is a given).


    As a final note, I been thinking about upgrading Ubuntu to Ubuntu Studio.

    Should I do that first since as of now my sound is royally messed up and perhaps I should install that before doing any further tweeking?

    Thanx, I would appreciate any help as this is becoming very frustrating.

    Re: How To: The (almost) Perfect Pulse Audio Setup

    Anyone find a fix for gdm restarting or getting the media keys working again?


    Edit: I redid the directions and audio works good now. But I'm still having the gdm and media keys problem.

    Re: How To: The (almost) Perfect Pulse Audio Setup

    Hello all,

    I have since updated Ubuntu to Ubuntu Studio. I must say, really nice looking interface and many many cool apps.

    One of the reasons I upgraded to Ubuntu Studio today was in the hope of correcting my sound problems. Sadly OSS and sound still isn't working.

    However, at this point I pretty much have everything loaded on to Ubuntu that I want to work with. So I am hoping that I can get my sound fixed.
