[SUSE] no sound for user in XMMS


hi there,

I have a problem with XMMS in SUSE 8.0

when I start the program as root, everything is fine, but when I start as a normal user, xmms gives no soudn output. also, no songs that I open appear in the playlist.

what could be wrong?

xmms can be found in /usr/bin i think.
log in as root, go to /usr/bin
set SUI for xmms (right click it and find SUI)

another thing, in xmms preferences make sure you selected the right sound server, like arts,ie, make audio output option to arts

hope this helps

I removed everything and made a fresh install of xmms, and now the sound works.

but there's another thing, I only hear sound from the right speaker in linux (from all sound programs). any idea what could be wrong there and how to correct it?

I now figured out that every time alsa starts up, the sound of one of the speakers is extremely low and I have tot turn it up to here anything.

how can I convince alsa to start at that sound level?

run 'kmix'
set your default volume level (you can try "igain" to boos the sound)
save the volume level from the menu

hope this helps
