Logitech USB Headset issue
 
Ok, I'm gonna explain this really simply. I have this Logitech USB Headset that I wanna use to talk with my friends on Skype and to just listen to things. But, I get no sound coming from the headphones nor can I record anythingwith the mic. In the volume control, the headset gets its own tab, but still. I just don't know what to do. Please help.

Logitech headset
 
I have a Logitech Headsety and can't output sound to it. I am using suse 9.3.
Kmix has a dropdown tab for it dmesg says it's there, BUT still no sound.
Has anyone figured how to fix it?

Not sure if this is relevant but if I need to use my Logitech USB headset for anything the device has to be set up as /dev/dsp1. I use this for Teamspeak and some other apps.

logitech headset
 
why do I have to enter " /dev/dsp1" into every app that I want to use the headset and not enter it once or when I plug it in it is automatically recognized like in windows and mac OS

I have been looking for a way to get my USB headset working with Teamspeak for a while and this post solved my problem.

thanks...

I know it's a late reply but to the guy who posted above me... it's because it's not Windows or Mac :p

I don't know if my problem is the same as other peoples here but I have a Speed Link Medusa 5.1 USB headset and I wanted to get it set up in Teamspeak too... as default it obviously loads /dev/dsp... my Turtle Beach Santa Cruz...when I searched /dev/ for dsp I got:
/dev/adsp
/dev/dsp
/dev/dsp1
I tried changing to dsp1 and all I got was a nice hissing noise and Teamspeak claimed I was muted... which to me would say it couldn't find the headset properly installed. I am totally new to working with ALSA and sound. I've normally left it alone. If I could get it to play mp3s I didn't complain... but now...
I am currently working on linux from scratch to teach me more about linux and the only distro I could get to host it properly was Mandriva 2005... for this reason I have Mandriva installed without much manually installed... it was meant as a temporary host

I thank anyone in advance for their help

Hi!
I solved the issue with my Logitech USB Headset under Debian recompiling the kernel;
simply add the support for usb audio devices by navigating
Device drivers -> Sound -> Advanced Linux sound Architecture -> USB Devices
and now select "USB Audio/MIDI driver".
Now I can use all audio applications (Skype, games, audio/video players...)
Furthermore, I'm able to direct different audio streams to different audio cards (i.e.: speakers plugged into my pci audio card or usb headset) using the tool included in KDE (I dunno how to do this under GNOME...)

Hope it will help.
