My laptop has the usual tinny sound system, so I bought a Creative
X-Fi USB 5.1 gadget. Some time back, Coling helped me to get that
working, and that is what I normally use for music. However, I can't
get the audio in/output sockets to work, so I can't use that for a
My problem is the number of places that seem related to sound issues.
I normally test the speaker setup in System Settings when using the
USB setup. However, if I need to use the internal audio sockets I
have to switch back to the Intel HDA card. This is where I come
unstuck. No matter what I do I can't get sound out, although after a
lot of experimentation I have managed to hear others speak.
Aslamixergui simply shows the PulseAudio channel - so no adjustment is
possible there. Alsamixer on Konsole shows that channel by default.
Pulling up the Intel channel I can set everything, including mic gain,
to a relatively high setting. The X-Fi channel says that no
adjustment is possible.
It's possible that there is a microphone problem, but I've tried both
a stand-along mic and a headset, so I'm inclined to rule that out.
What have I missed? The ideal would be to have everything working on
the X-Fi, but anything at all that can work will be an improvement :-)
