Re: No sound

Hi Ken,

> there should be a way to assign your USB headset as your default audio I/O.

It looks like Java does not care about GNOME or KDE or ALSA or OSS defaults. Even worse, I don't think Java has a mechanism to assign the defaults at all. It leaves it up to the program.

To record in Audacity using a USB microphone I don't need to use any tricks, because I can select the capture device from Audacity's preferences. I was wondering how did he use it with the applet, but apparently he didn't.

I have tried it in different ways - doesn't seems to work. Either I have to many hardware capture devices, or something else I don't know. I am giving it up for now.

 

The USB speakers I have ordered will arrive today. If that does not work I will look into adding the switch to the applet.

 

Thanks,
