My on board sound chip is broken, so I installed a USB sound card, which I prefer not to change.
The USB sound card is listed in alsamixer, Gnome mixer, and wherever it may be, for I am certain the system knows about it.
I still cannot hear any sound, and my alsamixer's PCM volume meter is set at its maximum of -0.06. THIS is odd in the first place.
Had the same problem, my Solution is from:http://gstreamer-devel.966125.n4.nabble.com/gstreamer-interaction-with-Gnome-td1677658.html
So actually gnome provides to set the default audio sink through the gstreamer-properties (which was/is (?) usually located under System>>Preferences>>Multimedia but is not there in Squeeze. You can call it from the command line.
- Code: Select all
Select your alsa as plugin and your usb-sound card as device. This will change the gconf key "audiosink". According to the thread mentioned Rhythmbox/totem/... will ignore that setting and use "musicaudiosink" instead which is not set by gstreamer-properties.
To adjust that open gconf (applications>>System Tools>>Configuration Editor) and under
copy the value from "audiosink" (which was adjusted by gstreamer-properties) to "musicaudiosink".
Worked like a charme for me. There also is a bug report: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=598314
