I’ve recently installed OpenSUSE 12.1 on my Windows 7 machine as a dual boot but I cannot seem to get the audio to work in Linux as it does in Windows. I’ve been searching for hours and can’t seem to get any solutions to work. Now is the time to post output info from my machine to this site but I can’t even remember how to do that lol (it’s been a while since I’ve last used Linux).
I’ve tried configuring pavucontrol and I can get the bars to move but no audio through the speakers.
I thought I was about to get it going because I’ve been seeing solutions regarding the /etc/pulse/default.pa file, but when I try to edit it as root in the Konsole I just get messages like “kwrite cannot connect to x server” or “gedit cannot open display”
Might as well post the info I know is relevant:
My desktop is plugged into my tv through hdmi, the tv has two speakers plugged into it through its headphone jack… and it also has a speaker connected through its optical input (windows recognizes all these speakers)
Just tell me what else you guys need and the commands to produce it. Thanks.
Okay, so it turns out that I managed to get some sound via the “one click” drivers by nVidia, but after rebooting I’ve come to another problem… the font requires a magnifying glass to read… I’m not familiar with suse enough to navigate this way to simply make it larger… here’s a screenshot of firefox:
not all text is impossible to read, but most is…
and as it turns out, it’s extremely difficult to post an image as i cant read ****
This is a different problem. You should start a new thread with a different subject. Asking for help ‘on inappropriate small fonts in KDE’ on a thread entitled ‘Hdmi audio problem’ won’t get you the KDE experts that you want to help you.
Sorry oldcpu I just thought it could be a simple fix thus didn’t think of making a new thread, and i tried running that in the terminal but i have no idea what to do as i can’t see enough to copy / paste… I need like a video of how to change the font because I cant navigate, yes I’m on KDE
Sorry I wasn’t clear enough, I understand.
When you boot to opensuse you will see the option line down the screen
Just navigate there and type 3 and opensuse will boot using runlevel 3
you will know because it will be all in text mode until you startx.
Just be sure to erase all the written option in there before you type 3
Just to be “sure”
Forget about the sound first, concentrate on configuring the fonts.
Go back to deano_ferrari earlier post on configuring font in kde
You might have to fix also the qt4-settings to make your login fonts clearer.
Hint on qt4 settings
you have to su to be root and
the command is qtconfig
ok so I forced the dpi to be 96 by reading deano’s post, but i didn’t really know what to configure for qtconfig… so i just went ahead and installed the drivers again and guess what… small fonts again. so clearly i need to configure something else and i guess you told me but i still don’t know enough to do it… the headphone jack gets audio but i would just like to not have any more cords… thanks for the help so far
