Can't install logitech G35 headset


Hey there,

I recently switched from windows to linux, but am still having some problems adapting. What bothers me the most is that I cant use my headset properly. When I plug it in without having installed the driver software necessary to run the surround sound, it only sends part of my sound to my headset, the rest gets played by my laptop's speakers. I have tried installing the driver software while working with wine windows program loader, but each time I get the 'sorry, this software is not compatible with your OS'. Does anyone have an idea how I could solve this so I can use my headset properly again? I am running the xUbuntu version.

Thanks in advance!

I dont understand. You wrote before
" it only sends part of my sound to my headset, the rest gets played by my laptop's speakers."
What does it means: is it a question of balance between headset and speaker?
alsamixer could change the balance.

Hey man, sorry for being so unclear, I didn't make myself understandable.
Certain parts of my sound get sent to my headset (skype, teamspeak, ingame sounds) but the rest (music I would play with banshee, youtube) all gets sent to my laptop's speakers. When I open Alsamixer it shows as a 'USB mixer' and when I try to change the settings (Headphone, bass, treble and mic) it doesn't do or change anything. Maybe I could fix it by downloading the logitech sound support drivers. Problem is that when I download them and run them with wine windows loader I always get the message that the software isn't supported for my system. No clue though which one I should use then. Tried both windows 8 versions and the windows 7 64-bit version here : http://support.logitech.com/product/...adset#download

Thanks again for taking your time to help me!

Forget downloading any windows driver.
Lets start from the beginning: debug http://www.alsa-project.org/main/ind.../Help_To_Debug
(and/or give the outputs of lsusb, lspci).
I see your headset: a USB.
We have to see if alsa support that machine.

Try installing pavucontrol and running it from the command line. That usually fixes USB sound problems in Ubuntu-based distros for me.
