I installed Skype, and noticed that I could not record my voice. Then I installed "pulseaudio" with its additional related entries (modules, utils, etc.) , and "pavucontrol", and went to "Configure Your Computer", "Sound", ticket all options
After that I noticed that I caused some conflict in the sound configuration:
- VLC reproduced music CD with static sound and a lot of interference.
- The Skype test call not only did not recorded my voice, but the reproduction of the Skype system call giving the instructions, had the same problems of static sound and a lot of interference. And the Skype sound system alert for contacts coming online or going out produced a pinch sound, kind of interference.
- Clementine did not reproduce music CD at all.
- UMPlayer reproduced correctly music CD.
- Youtube videos reproduced music correctly.
- RadioTray (internet radio) reproduced music correctly.
I opened PulseAudio Volume Control, but could not figure out how to set it up. I don't want to scramble more with music configuration and make things worse.
I did some research in this Forum with:
- "Sound configuration"
- "KDE sound configuration"
I found many issues but unfortunately noting for a bare sound misconfiguration.
I also did Google research for Microphone configuration for Skype, and found instructions oriented to another distro users, not so applicable for PCLOS.
I have PCLOS KDE 2012 64-bit fully updated and a Logitech HD Webcam c615.
From AlsaMixer v1.0.25 I obtained the following information:
My "proc/asound/version" is: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.23.
My " /proc/asound/cards" are:
0 [SB ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB
HDA ATI SB at 0xfe9f4000 irq 16
1 [C615 ]: USB-Audio - HD Webcam C615
HD Webcam C615 at usb-0000:00:13.2-5, high speed
Thank you for any orientation.
