Skype ring from speakers even if headphones attached.


Hello,
I usually have my headphones attached to my laptop and when skype rings I do not hear it unless I have my headphones on.

There is an option in skype to choose the output speakers but in OpenSUSE there is only one option:
pulseaudio server (local)

Is there a way to add other sound output options?

Thanks.

Quite a few laptops turn off the speakers as soon as headphones are plugged in. You would likely have to unplug the headphones to get audio out of the speakers.

Thanks grim76
A while ago with different distro there was options to choose from now it is only pulseaudio, this also happens in windows I choose the output either the speackers or the headphones.

So I thought if I changed the output from pulseaudio then I can choose which sound output I want.
