Question Problem with aumix and xdm and kdm


Ok here is a funky one.

My system was working just fine, all of it. But I decided to install the nvidia driver, after this the aumix doesn't run with kdm or xdm.

If I use startx then it works just fine.

I'm totally puzzeled, the /dev/mixer and /dev/dsp are both mod 0777, the alsa configuration for the soundblaster live is just fine. Actually alsamixer works like a charm but I want the aumix so I can configure hotkeys for the volume on fluxbox.


Please drop a line if you have any idea.

Are you running it from a menu or from command line?

I don't know why, but using xdm or kdm to start an X session ignores commands in the .xinitrc. Try this:

In your .fluxbox/apps file (because your using xdm or kdm) add a line at the top to start aumix. Mine is like this:

[startup] aumix -L

You might also need to start xmodmap so the keys will work. For example:

[startup] xmodmap ~/.Xmodmap

Here is the weird thing the rest of the keys work just fine, this is an specific aumix problem but just if I use kdm or xdm because if I use startx everything works just fine.

I did try the aumix -L on startup but nothing.

You tried the command from .fluxbox/apps and NOT .fluxbox/startup?

Hmm... A spur-of-the-moment idea is to try adding the command to the global xinitrc.fluxbox file somewhere under /etc/X11R6. I don't remember the exact location and I'm not at my linux computer. Whatever line(s) you have in your ~/.xinitrc you can put in that xinitrc.fluxbox file. (I think. I haven't actually tried it.)
