Sound, RealPlayer, Alsamixer
So here I am again seeking some expert help for a couple of irritating issues I have on my Slack 11.0 install on my Panasonic CF-T1 laptop.
First off. I want to store the mixer setting as an ORDINARY user when I log off. I can do this as root, no problem, using Alsamixer. But when I run Alsamixer as none root the settings are not stored and on start up the sound is fully on and fear for the safty of my speakers!!
So how do I get sensible volumes as a none root user?
And lastly. I like to listen to the radio using the RealPlayer plugin in FireFox. However sometimes I get no sound. The player shows 'contacting', buffering & then 'playing' but I have no sound. I can run alsaconf again and the result is the same. But KDE sounds work and I can use 'play' to play a sample sound. Other times it just works fine. Any idea how I can sort this?
Thanks in advance and all advise very much appreciated.
Are you running KDE and do you have kmix running. Or does it also not store the sound options?
After adjusting the volume with alsamixer,
and that will save your current volume settings.
Thanks, 'alsactl store' works a treat.
Now if only I could sort Real Player:scratch:
