USB Headset (Plantronics DSP500) not working with OS 11.2

I had my USB headset working with openSUSE 11.1. It was easy. I plug it in and it worked. But for some reason with 11.2 I’m getting no sound. It shows up under kmix on the taskbar. Is there anything I need to install/load?

Please take a look here: USB headphones - openSUSE

and here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE - determine the order of sound devices


One additional step not mentioned there that I needed to do:

  1. Open a terminal
  2. type “su” (without quotes) to become super user and enter your password
  3. run:
    /usr/sbin/rcalsasound restart
  4. Unplug your USB headset
  5. Plug the headset back in.
  6. Restart kmix

And it should work!
