Thread: Have sound in browser and audio player but not in Skype or other chat apps

    Default Have sound in browser and audio player but not in Skype or other chat apps

    Hello,
    This is the first time I have installed openSuse, 12.2 x64 and I love it but as all newbies, I have some issues making the mic and audio playback work in apps like Skype, the sound works fine on youtube or amarok.

    I installed Skype but I have no mic and no audio playback, when I try to call a contact it says there is some issue with sound playback. I also tried and selected all the entries in Sound device in the Options panel of Skype but none of those work.

    I have a Asus M4A78LT-M motherboard wich seems to have no drivers for linux on their drivers page here ASUS - Motherboards- ASUS M4A78LT-M

    If I go intro Yast > Hardware > Sound I have listed there one entry - "SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)"

    Hi,

    Amarok, so I assume you run KDE. Take a look in Systemsettings - Multimedia, check the sound settings.
    In Skype too, check the sound settings, try messing around a bit with the settings.

    Yes, KDE
    In Multimedia I have at Phonon > and in all section I have a device (i think) Internal Audio Analog Stereo wich works if I click Test.

    I tried all options in Skype, none of them works, should I need to reboot and try again ? I didn't reboot after I installed Skype ?

    Clicking Test does only test the selected device. You may need to change the device preferences.

    Your best shot are these forums, search for skype sound. Also, you can install pavucontrol from the Packman repo, it allows you to set all kind of sound settings.

    Have a look over this to see if there is anything helpful

    SDB:Skype - openSUSE


    - I would imagine you will be able to get things going if you have a play around with pavucontrol though.

    I think I've managed to get skype working by installing and playing with pavucontrol but now I noticed that I don't have system sound anymore, I can hear a slight popping sound but no system sound like new email, or window error.

    P.S:
    Nevermind, I got it working, in the Pulse Audio Volume Manager system sounds were muted.
