Thread: No micphone on OPENSUSE 11.3

    Default No micphone on OPENSUSE 11.3

    Hi,
    There is no mic on my OPENSUE 11.3. I find a link on the diagnosis:
    No microphone

    The problem is that the output of the command:

    arecord -vv -f cd test.wav

    is not the expected, see below. There is no test.wav file at the current folder.

    How to go next? Thanks.

    You have no permissions to write file test.wav into directory /usr/bin,
    which is as it should be. Run "cd" to change to your user home directory
    and try again.

    In addition to your not having permissions to write a file 'test.wav', ... note also YOU need to provide the file 'test.wav'. It does NOT come with your system by default. So grab a .wav file of your choice, and rename it to test.wav, and put it in /home/yourusername, and test from the directory /home/yourusername

    arecord creates the file, recording sound.
