Problem with choosing sound device
I've now installed Slackware64 14 on my Sony Vaio laptop. I have three sound cards (or what are recognised as sound cards anyway): internal, HDMI and external USB speakers.
The problem is that the sound is not directed into my external USB speakers in most cases, but instead goes through the in-built ones in my laptop. I've tried rectifying this in KDE system settings, by setting the USB as the preferred driver in phonon, but it still doesn't work - chrome, opera, mplayer and others default to the inbuilt speakers.
I know the speakers work fine, since audacious directs sound through them nicely.
