Thread: 11.1 perfect except Logitech Headphones

  1. #1

    Default 11.1 perfect except Logitech Headphones

    I have a perfectly running 11.1 64 system. It is patched to the latest and even kde4.3.1 release 183
    kernel info :
    Linux a91f 2.6.27.37-0.1-default #1 SMP 2009-10-15 14:56:58 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    The only thing which let's me down are
    the USB Logitech Headphones. Tried everything , including putting the USB Audio first in yast->hardware->sound. Kmixer shows it as Logitech Headphone next to the HDA Intel tab.
    Pulseaudio is enabled.
    Try to run Skype ... headphones no sound, no mic its dead. Someone had the same problem in this forum and it seems to have gone away with the latest kernel from head.

    To recompile the kernel for a perfectly good system is the last thing I want to do.

    What are my other options ?

    Thanks

    I do not have USB headphones, so I have no direct experience in this. I assume then that you believe you tried all the recommendations in this page:
    USB headphones - openSUSE

    ... I have a friend who noted their USB headphones only work if they boot their PC with the headphones plugged. Else they do not work. But thats just their PC and configuration.

    Typically for sound problems I ask users provide detail as to their sound configuration, asking them to run the script:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh
    and post here the output URL it will provide when the script completes.

    I also typically ask for the output of:
    rpm -qa '*alsa*'
    rpm -qa '*pulse*'
    rpm -q libasound2
    uname -a
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    However, given I have no such device, I do not believe there is much I can to offer. Possibly someone else may be able to look at the output of the above thou, and make some suggestions.

    The script does not see the USB headphones as evident from this:
    Code:
    !!Soundcards recognised by ALSA
    !!-----------------------------
     1 [Intel          ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
                          HDA Intel at 0xf7ff8000 irq 22
    Did you have the USB headphones plugged in when you ran the script?

    Did you have the USB headphones plugged in when you booted?

    If not, please try that (ie reboot with the headphones plugged in). Then run the diagnostic script:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh

    The headset is always plugged in.

    Now after rebooting three times and
    running the script I get this output
    on the last run :

    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=8d...e229a2140b62be


    I get sound through the headset using
    the Vlc player.

    Krecord also worked .

    What not works is :

    Skype 2.1.0.47
    Amarok
    Firefox 3.5.4 (tested with youTube)

    They choose not to play via the headset but only via the connected speakers .


    Thanks for any further pointers.

    Someone who has USB speakers and/or USB headset will need to chime in. I assume YaST provides the option to make a USB device the default device. Did you try that if it is available?

    If you need to boot 3 times for this to be recognized, there is something not right. You may need to write a bug report on this.

    One can set the USB Audio as primary card in Yast, which I did, but did not
    make any difference so far.

    Thank you for your help and have a nice day.

    It may only have an effect after a successful reboot with the USB device plugged in (and successfully recognized after the boot).
