modprobe.d/sound problem[Solved]
« on: February 14, 2012, 12:14:36 pm »

Hello, I made a recent thread about the soundcard default thingy, well I tried the nano ect/modprobe.d/sound option but when I save it, it so called saved it to a file and when I hit enter I get this message

so I tried vDefsound to change it and well, I can only play one sound at a time, like when I am watching a movie and pause it to get in a skype call then I can't hear skype. What the hell is happening? Need help pronto!

Got rid of asoundrc and that seemed to fix the problem, but the modprobe.d only seemes to last one reboot before it goes back to choosing my usb desktop mic as default again, fix please?

In the pic you posted you wre trying to write to "/ect/"  and not "etc" and that's why you were getting the directory error.

I think the problem with .asoundrc is that it is in userspace, I will do some testing here to see if the same thing works better in systemspace.

Let me know if the howto you are following here
Works out for you.

I had the same problem, I have a PCI soundcard but Vector would set the mic of my usb webcam or (when the webcam was unplugged) my onboard sound chip as default sound device, i don't know if this will work for you but worked well for me:

I edited the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf file (i don't remember well right now but i think the file didn't exist so if you don't find the file, just create it)
and added the following line (by the way it is the only line in my file):
Code: [Select]
options snd slots=snd-emu10k1
my soundcard is a Creative SB Audigy 2, so you replace the emu10k1 part with the name of the driver of your sound card:

basically you can set the order of preference for your sound devices like this

options snd slots=snd-device0,snd-device1,snd-device2...snd-deviceN

but it is no necessary, you don't need to write down all of your devices, just the one you want as default.

*double tactical facepalm* Ouch. No wonder why it would not work! I tried it and yes it worked perfectly, Marking this as solved for the time being.
