I'm new here and I have to say that I am fed up of Windows and that I wanted to learn more about Linux which actually fascinates me, eventough I have some problems.. For example : PulseAudio. I installed it, it workes, because the soundbars move, but there is no sound. I have LinuxMint 16 Petra 64Bit.
Can someone help me? (I checked everything concerning mute settings etc.)
Been finding the same thing. If Mint wants to develop a solid gaming base, then managing sound setups (drivers etc) needs to be as easy as managing graphics drivers. At the moment it's do-able, but compared to Windows/Mac, Linux sound is an incoherent mess of weird: ALSA, JACK, PulseAudio. All these wrappers, libraries and connectors are like Russian dolls.
My use cases involve making music with PureData/Renoise/EnergyXT, streaming video, watching films and listening to music. I both create and consume noise.
If you look through the Gaming on Linux mint section of the forums, 'no sound' and 'can't get sound to work' are common issues.
Luckily I found this article : http://tuxradar.com/content/how-it-works-linux-audio-explained but other users may not be so fortunate!
Or at least make some documentation for us clueless about audio/MIDI/etc.
I just had problems with audio in mint, so yes!
I think just a general over haul of the sound systems is in order with a view toward ease of use by new folks, and with the option of more complex set ups for those who understand them. I have fits trying to deal with phonon and I wish KDE with mint installed with something at least as simple as Cinnamon's set up.
Yes having a very easy jack and ardour setup would also be fantastic. Wrestling to get realtime jack and ardour going right now is a total PITA.
I´m a Audiophile user, and in a Linux its difficult to have a Powerful and Easy Tool for process the Sound, i think in a Tool with EQUALIZER (p.e. 12 bands), with BASS Control, with enhaced effects like SRS Sandbox or Creative X-fi in 24 or 32 bits NATIVE, controls of type a Tweeters, Mid and Subwoofer, range of Crossover cut, etc. For use a FULL our High End Card Sound and Speaker. THANKS
I think there are two choices: yes, stop using Pulse Audio, or give it some attention to integrate this thing properly in thee system. I have to remove Pulse Audio right after fresh install of the system. Problems always are: Skype - no sound with my microphone, sound occasionally disappear, and so on.
Not remake. STOP using Pulse Audio with any Linux distro from now on.
Things have changed since then.
4.0 audio please!
Agreed. It needs to be far less labour intensive to make it work.
+1: Yes, Pulse Audio has a number of issues
YES PLEASE! #1 top priority
sounds like a good idea to me.
Whatever has to be done to make TeamSpeak 3 work properly with PulseAudio! *begs*
Most of the audio apps I use work with ALSA. Any PulseAudio integration should work through ALSA. ... @Rovanion, the best way to try out the alpha is to do what we'll be doing once the release comes out. If we don't do this, there is really no reason to have an alpha. Just keep it under wraps until it is ready to go.
This idea should not be posted here at this moment. All ideas here should be about the community site. Please refer to the forum or launchpad for presenting blueprints for the distro.
