USB Headset and the sound system

I am on openSUSE 11.1 with kde3 and trying to configure Logitech ClearChat
Comfort USB™ Headset, which used to work under openSUSE 10.3.

I add them, as I used to and as recommended here, through yast/hardware/sound, make
a primary sound card and… don’t here a sound.
What’s more, the test sound is not played even for the on-board soundcard
that actually works.

How do I make this headset work in openSUSE 11.1? Preferably with an
option to switch which device is to be used.

Will it be any easier with kde4 (and pulse)?

ps. I noticed USB headset works from time to time, when the primary
soundcard is busy, fe when I have both Amarok and Spotify running.


I have exactly the same problem as this and am really struggling to get it right. I have followed the same steps outlined above which was posted by someone else.

Anyone with hints or advice please help.
