    Well, do you want to restore your system to its original state, i.e. before you tried this guide?

    If you want to restore PulseAudio to its original state:
    a) yes, allow the packages to be downgraded, then:

    b)
    Code:
    $ sudo dpkg -P --force-depends pulseaudio
    $ sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
    $ sudo rm /etc/asound.conf

    Question Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support (Hardy Heron)

    What I want is to install libasound.so.2 which is what I was going to do (as you suggested me to do) when I got that message. In other words... What I want is to try Skype to see if this guide helps the sound problems but I can't because it says that it's missing libasound.so.2... Can I do that without downgrading all those files?

    Thanks!

    Can you try following "Appendix 2: Removal Instructions", then checking if your system works normally (i.e. *before* you used this HOWTO)?

    If you no longer get errors about libasound.so.2, you can try starting the guide again from scratch.

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support (Hardy Heron)

    Hi everyone,

    I re-wrote "Part B" to fix Flash*. A better solution is to install the beta version (10) of the plugin from Adobe Labs. I have provided the upgraded "flashplugin-nonfree" package as I don't expect Hardy to get this update for some time (more than likely they would wait for version 10 final). If you already followed this HOWTO previously, you just need to run through Part B again.

    *Still I386 only, sorry.

    Re: HOWTO: PulseAudio Fixes & System-Wide Equalizer Support (Hardy Heron)

    So I followed the whole tutorial. That per se works but Skype is still giving me problems.

    I configured Skype to use Pulse instead and that solved the "Problem with audio playback" message, but it only gives off sound for a split of a second at the very beginning and then nothing.

    I tried the static oss version together with the "padsp" thing. Still no use.

    I need Skype because family and friends are on it. Impossible to convert them all on to Ekiga.

    The only part of this tutorial which I didn't follow was Part D, as I'm not a laptop user.

    Moreover, when I close Skype now, it hangs and I'd have to kill the process. This happens both on the normal version and the satic OSS version.

    Any ideas anyone please? I "fell in love" with Ubuntu but this thing is really bugging me right now.

    My specifications:

    ASUS P4V8X-X Motherboard
    450Watts PSU
    Intel Pentium 4 3.00GHz HT (Dual-Core)
    1GB DDR400 PC3200 RAM (1 module)
    Gainward NVIDIA GeForce 6200
    AC'97 Audio Chipset, built-in
    No overclocking

    Other sounds work fine (ex. MP3 playback).

    Thanks.

    Did you follow the "optional" step in Part C? On my system, Skype tends to skip *a lot* (both the ALSA and OSS version) unless I adjust the fragment values.

    Can you do me another favour? Install "neverball" and make sure it's using the "libsdl1.2debian-alsa" backend, i.e.:

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install neverball libsdl1.2debian-alsa
    Launch neverball and let me know if sound works, or if it crashes. That may be a similar problem to Skype.

    Thanks!

    No I haven't done the optional step.

    Tried Neverball and it also lacks sound, and just as Skype did, I had to kill the process to be able to close it down.

    Gonna try again with the optional step (Part C), and thanks for your help. Will keep you updated.

    BTW, Do I have to reboot after doing the optional part?

    Restarting the "pulseaudio" process should be enough (i.e. log out and back in).

    Just so you know, I experienced crashes with Skype and neverball as well, but the updated libasound2/libasound2-plugins from Debian unstable completely solved that problem. Did you skip Part A, by any chance?

    So I did the optional part.

    The problem remained. There is no change I can detect anywhere. I even rebooted my PC.

    What do you think I can do to be able to use Skype?

    Thanks.

    Get Skype OSS and run it with "padsp skype" instead of just "skype".

    Alternatively, follow this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...1&postcount=10

    It's a howto I prepared ages back. Forgot to mention it earlier.
