I have been trying to figure this out for a long time and have posted it a couple times. I have re-installed and something has changed so I will try again.
I have an Everex nc 1502 laptop with Debian Etch installed. I have install alsa drivers and they seem to work. I want to use my USB headphones because I live in a tent. Now Mplayer and Amarok will play through the headphones just fine.
However I can not get Totem or Flash9 to play through the headphones. They play through the speaker which I have to put my ear on the speaker to hear it.
I also had to add "esd" to startup at boot to get the USB sound to work, if that matters. Another note don't know if it means anything, but to get the headphones to be recognized by the system I had to configure Ekiga Softphone.

I don't know what I'm suppose to use. I don't know whats working and whats not. My Mplayer and Amarok work fine its just Totem and flash9.0 that use the speaker. Its like Totem and Flash decided to do something stupid and neither one is configurable.
I don't have either one of those files or folders under /etc. Maybe its named something else?
The idea makes sence though. I'll have too dig around. thanx
Ok I think I found it under /etc/modprobe.d/sound. I added a line options snd-usb-audio=0 rebooted and had all sound to speaker. So I thought great I'll swap them around and rebooted. It went back to the way it was, half speaker half usb. So close!
