Thread: PulseAudio + Packman Equalizer

  1. #1

    Default PulseAudio + Packman Equalizer

    I don't have an issue with getting the equalizer to work, I got that.


    However, with the director installed, when I reboot my computer Pulseaudio (the entire service) will not run, saying that it cannot load the daemon and cookie file.

    When I delete the .pulse/presets in my username director, everything gets restored but than the equalizer won't work.

    How can I have both working?

    I followed the instructions here: http://forums.opensuse.org/showthrea...-equalizer-gui
    Got the Package from here: http://packman.links2linux.org/packa...ualizer/442649


    My console after installing the equalizer and making directories:

    Hi
    What is Director?

    Hmmm, why the permissions issues? Can you check the ~/.pulse ownership
    it should be your username:users.

    director is directory.

    like I said I can get it to work, but with system reboot pulse audio will not start unless I delete the directory I made to get the equalizer to work.

    This is in 13.1 KDE

    I do have the pulse audio control package installed as well.

    as far as permission maybe cause I use a different password for root. I can check when I get home.

    Don't have a solution but I also so problems with the pulse equalizer removed it and deleted the files in the . pulse drectory to get pulse back. I think the package is broken. I was just playing and really have no need of it so i did not investigate or report it on bugzilla. It may be that it is a packman package so it may be needed to report it there.

    For your sins... Does "old in the tooth" mean that the program has received no maintenance in years?
    Leap 42.3 (ext4, KDE Plasma 5.8.7) ~ stable
    Manjaro (ext4, Xfce) ~ rolling updates
    Tumbleweed (ext4, KDE Plasma5) ~ managed updates via "Tumbleweed Snapshots" service.

    Hi
    Correct, not for a few years. Since gstreamer is a 1.x now..... It
    works for some, not others...

    I do see this article here;

    You may want to explore veromix if using KDE. It's a KDE Widget. It has effect
    plugins that you can add to any stream/device. Including equalizer.
