I've got a set of usb headphones, and I'd like to have all of my audio switch over to them when they're plugged in, rather than coming out of my laptop's speakers. Currently, my sound plays from the laptop speakers regardless of whether the headphones are plugged in or not.
When I go into kmix -> Settings -> Audio Setup, the headphones are listed as a playback device. I can select it, play the test audio, and it does come out of the headphones, even while I have audio from another source playing out of the laptop speakers at the same time.
I've moved the headphone up to the top of preference list. Now whenever I plug in/unplug the headphones I get a little pop-up message telling me that audio playback is switching to the headphones/falling back to the laptop speakers. The only problem is that my speakers keep on playing all my audio, and the headphones don't play anything.
I read through http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:har..._snd-hda-intel
echo "options snd-hda-intel model=auto" > /etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf
though this had no effect, even after a restart.
My next step is to start looking through some of the more complex options on that page, but I feel like the solution should be pretty simple. After all, the headphones have played a little audio, and Slackware seems to think it's switching the playback device.
I'd love to hear any suggestions.
