That looks correct now.
However, my advise would be to first try if you can get any sound from
the command line.
Do you have any packages installed that go with your sound drivers (like
alsa-base and alsa-utils if you use the ALSA drivers)?
yes, i've installed those.
See if you have a program like 'aplay' or 'esdplay' on your system (you
can find out by e.g.: $ whereis aplay aplay: /usr/bin/aplay
Next try and play some .wav file, e.g.:
$ aplay example.wav
$ esdplay example.wav
You can probably find some .wav files by doing:
$ find /usr/share -name *.wav
well, I can get sound via cdplayer and XMMS. And I can use soundrecorder
(it records and plays back), but sometimes eg XMMS doesn't work after I've
used soundrecorder or vice versa.Then what I do is go into XMMS
options-preferences and choose an Output Plugin until it works.(OSS works,
ALSA seems to work but produces no sound, ESound gives an error about not
being able to open audio)
When I try to get sound via commandline, it seems to be playing, but I get
$ aplay /usr/share/sounds/gnibbles/laughter.wav
#Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/gnibbles/laughter.wav' : Unsigned 8 bit,
Rate #8000 Hz, Mono
Also, I've been able to play a DVD using Totem Movie Player, but no sound
came out. Now, since fixing the sound for the CD-player, I thought the
movie sound will now also be okay. But if I try to run totem I get the
(totem:3151): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols
specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
any ideas about what might be going on?
(GnomeMeeting druid test audio still doesn't work)
