#5 Tips, Tricks & Scripts » How to Assign USB Audio as primary sound device in ALSA » 2010-10-08 22:52:20

This is for anyone that has a fried sound card (like me) in their laptop. Instead of replacing the motherboard or tossing your old laptop in the trash, get a pair of USB speakers and follow this procedure:

(This procedure will get sound going without the need of installing pulse audio)

1) Backup the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Note: Original alsa-base.conf:

# autoloader aliases
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-0
install sound-slot-1 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-1
install sound-slot-2 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-2
install sound-slot-3 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-3
install sound-slot-4 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-4
install sound-slot-5 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-5
install sound-slot-6 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-6
install sound-slot-7 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-7
# Cause optional modules to be loaded above generic modules
install snd /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd && { /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-ioctl32 ; /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-seq ; }
install snd-rawmidi /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-rawmidi && { /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-seq-midi ; : ; }
install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-emu10k1 && { /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-emu10k1-synth ; : ; }
# Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
options bt87x index=-2
options cx88_alsa index=-2
options snd-atiixp-modem index=-2
options snd-intel8x0m index=-2
options snd-via82xx-modem index=-2
# Keep snd-pcsp from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-pcsp index=-2
# Keep snd-usb-audio from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=-2

Add:

# Assign USB Audio as default sound card
options snd_usb_audio index=-1

Delete these last TWO lines in the file:

# Keep snd-usb-audio from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-usb-audio index=-2

New file should look like this:

# autoloader aliases
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-0
install sound-slot-1 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-1
install sound-slot-2 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-2
install sound-slot-3 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-3
install sound-slot-4 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-4
install sound-slot-5 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-5
install sound-slot-6 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-6
install sound-slot-7 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-7
# Cause optional modules to be loaded above generic modules
install snd /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd && { /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-ioctl32 ; /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-seq ; }
install snd-rawmidi /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-rawmidi && { /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-seq-midi ; : ; }
install snd-emu10k1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install snd-emu10k1 && { /sbin/modprobe --quiet snd-emu10k1-synth ; : ; }

# Assign USB Audio as default sound card
options snd_usb_audio index=-1

# Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
options bt87x index=-2
options cx88_alsa index=-2
options snd-atiixp-modem index=-2
options snd-intel8x0m index=-2
options snd-via82xx-modem index=-2
# Keep snd-pcsp from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-pcsp index=-2

NOTE 1: If a sound card is not found by ALSA... ALSA config will not make USB the default sound card, so this tells method tells ALSA, USB audio is what you want it to use.

NOTE 2: PCM still needs to be checked in the Alsa Mixer.

NOTE 3: The volume icon will now show up in Tint2 (needs to be unmuted) - reboot may be required.

NOTE 4: The spelling of the word "beeing", it's a typo by the original coder.

Synaptic "software sources" menu item doesn't work

problem The "repositories" menu item under the "settings" tab doesn't open, and then it puts up a "repositories changed" popup.
Also the xfce (or other) menu item "software sources" doesn't work. It seems to be a bug with the package 'software-properties-gtk'. 'Update-manager' (not a standard Statler install) doesn't work either, which might be a related issue.

fix: none at present. The issue seems to be gone in Debian Sid, so probably it will be fixed eventually. Meanwhile you can try uninstalling software-properties-gtk and editing /etc/apt/sources.list by hand.

With all due respect, this is not an Alpha 2 issue, it's an upstream issue with Debian and it does not belong in this thread. And with your recent chastising of others for posting in this thread and, with this issue already being well documented, I fail to see the need for you to post about it again in the first place.

XFCE Crashes due to theme 'Wildbush'
Not sure exactly what caused it but

Problem going through theme list causes XFCE to crash and return to GDM when Wildbush is selected. All further login attempts get kicked to GDM

Workaround Go to terminal session navigate to ~/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/
edit xfwm4.xml (any editor should work)
change <property name="theme" type="string" value="Wildbush" />
to a different theme like : <property name="theme" type="string" value="Gorilla" />

Save and Login

I can confirm this as it has happened to me as well, and I removed the Wildbush theme from my system.

Opera is dreadfully slow when running Zygna Texas Hold 'em but from what I've read, it's a QT issue with Flash and not an Opera one. The one thing I like about Opera is that it is written in QT, so Opera is the same across all platforms. The Opera in Windows is the same Opera in Linux. I hope that bug with QT and Flash gets resolved.

I'm not sure about Ad-Block but their download manager opens up a new tab rather than a small pop-up box as in Firefox.

Opera still has a few more hurdles to jump over before it can replace Firefox as a default browser but I like the progress they are making.  The browser is fast and has a clean UI and more screen display is made available to the user than in Firefox.

Opera Unite
Opera Synch
Opera Widgets

Are interesting features as well.

May I suggest trying a new flash drive? A 4 gb drive can be as cheap as $10 dollars in the US.

This has always worked for me (but I have a PNY 8 gb)

I just download FF from their website, and in this way get one localized to my own language, instead of using the English version, I unpack the folder anywhere and then just make a menu and keybind link to the executable. And yes it's very handy I can update from the browser interface this way. Are there any disadvantages to it compared to the way described here?

It's a matter of personal preference really, but there also may be advantages or disadvantages that I'm not aware of. I'm curious to know how the Java and Flash updates are handled when running Firefox direct from the binary package.

It would be great if the binary download of Firefox was portable and could run off a USB key but executing the binary on any system that has Firefox installed will launch the installed version and not the binary one.

Do it the Ubuntuzilla way...

Note: I backed up my bookmarks and removed the previously installed version of Firefox on my system. before starting this procedure.

Manually add to your apt sources list:

deb http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main

Or, have it placed there automatically:

echo -e "\ndeb http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/project/ubuntuzilla/mozilla/apt all main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list > /dev/null

Then get the key:

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com C1289A29

Then update:

sudo apt-get update

Next:

- Open up Synaptic and look in the "Origin" section, then the subsection titled: "stable/main (downloads.sourceforge.net)".

- Seamonkey, Firefox and Thunderbird, will all be listed there.

- Install what you like.

Note: The first time I attempted installing Firefox this way in Statler, I received a missing maintainer error.  I closed the error box and reinstalled the package. Firefox then installed without any problems and it placed a menu entry into the Xfce menu. I fired it up and my bookmarks (from my previously uninstalled version) were still there.

Firefox suggests we run the binary download from our desktops if we can't get Fireofox from our package maintainer.  Installing Firefox this way, should allow updates to come straight from Mozilla.

See info on installing language packs, as this method installs only the US English version of Firefox:

Hi all,

on #! Statler Xfce, I installed Ubuntu-Tweak (I know it's for Ubuntu but, it still provides a graphical way to pull apps down from official Debian repos).

With that said there's an apt cache cleaning feature which can only be accessed after providing a root password and it will not accept the password I use for sudo and I have to resort to using "gksudo ubuntu-tweak".

How can I edit the Xfce menu entry to add gksudo so this app to work like Synaptic does (where permission is already granted)?

Thanks smile

I used the date command to set the date and time (e.g. sudo date 09260508) which solved the problem but I will give ntp a try.

When I install Linux, I install it for my LOCALE, I let Linus keep UST (GMT) then I install ntp and it grabs the time from a timeserver for my locale.  The clock is always right.  EXCEPT: Argentine turns on Daylight Savings Time at the whim of the government. And then some provinces say -- NO! Not us!  Polite way of giving my comment on that: #&$/%(  big_smile

I installed NTP and verified my locale was set to the US and changed the Clock Settings in Tint2 to America/Chicago from CDT and my clock is up to date.

#25 Re: Help & Support (Crunchbang 11 "Waldorf") » [Resolved] Getting Pulse Audio to work with ALSA » 2010-09-26 19:37:01

From the basic install of Statler (with Iceweasel and default flash player installed) the above solution doesn't work. I'm investigating to see whether Firefox needs to be installed or to see if this a Flash only issue.

Update:

1)  Installed Flash-Aid (Iceweasel or Firefox) and ran it (it basically removes the flashplugin-nonfree and any other free flash replacement). On my system it could not find a replacement candidate... so no soup for me!

2) Went back to youtube video (then no video at all) download the flash plugin deb package (Ubuntu 8.04+) to hard  disk and installed with gdebi. Now I have sound in Youtube!

Note: I tried this originally opening and installing  the deb package from the web page (which downloads to a temp folder) and it did not work. Best way to to download the package to home folder, close browser and and then install the flash plug in.
