« on: July 24, 2020, 04:23:09 AM »
Hello friends! As I said in title.

so far, I have installed alsa.tcz and pulseaudio.tcz, but they still don't work correctly.

I hope to get your help.Thank you again.

I typed it word by word, not copy and paste... Since I can only access this forum using a device with VPN. Administrator, can you change the access policy of this website? In this way, more people may participate in the discussion and it will be more convenient for friends  to visit. Thank you.

It looks like your sound device should work - what happens when you try to play music using, for example, xmms?

btw, is the vpn issue due to you changing your user name from minux to noob?

@Juanito when I try to play music using mmx,  it says "Couldn't open audio, Please check that: 1)Your soundCard is configured properly.2)You have the correct output plugin selected.3)No other program is blocking the soundcard..."

If you are speaking of xmms, you need to access the setup via <ctrl p> and choose alsa as the output format.

Now I can play music with xmms, but like all other programs there is still no sound.
Many people on the Internet say that getting a sound card to work is the hardest part of installing or using Linux.

Hence I use pulse audio and pavucontrol. That alsa is pretty difficult to configure for me (IMHO).

I just downloaded pulseaudio and did the steps in pulseaudio info file. I downloaded pavucontrol. Launched xmms. Thats all !

Of course not, I use VPN because the forum has some kind of IP access restriction or access blocking mechanism.

I'm surprised - you appear to have simple sound hardware that comes up as the alsa default - which other programs do not have sound?

Note also that to use pulseaudio with xmms you need the xmms-pulse extension so, if you did not install xmms-pulse, then you were still getting sound via alsa.

I think pulseaudio magically rectified the alsa. Something makes me think that xmms is using alsa.

The xmms output defaults to oss  - as far as I can see from the thread above, after the op changed the xmms output to alsa, the sound worked without pulseaudio being installed.
