Holy crumps thanks dude, yeah it wasn't out when Skype first went pulse only, that's a lifesaver! biggrin.gif

Is there anyone that could possibly help me set up the Objective DAC/O2 Amp combo with ALSA. I cannot figure out how to configure it to play audio through the device without installing PulseAudio. I am an arch user, and I obviously tried using the wiki, but I cannot seem to get the device to actually play audio, despite being able to set it as the default device.

What's your distro, some do weird things to not let you set USB audio devices as default.

I am using Arch, so that would not be an issue. I am not exactly a new to configuring things, but I just cannot figure this out, and I have finals this week, so I don't have time to tinker with it.

Well, I finally managed to figure out how to get my DAC to work with just Alsa. I also got my new Grados in the mail on Monday!!

1) Good to hear you got it working. Just out of curiosity, what was the problem?

 

2) Congrats on your new 'phones!

 

3) Good luck on finals (I'll be taking mine as well)!

It was a lack of understanding of the Alsa config syntax on my part. I ended up finding some example configs, and just adapted the settings for myself and it worked.

Thanks for the good luck, I wish you the same.

The Grados are magical!

I have a crudload more of github-based project WMs stored in another text file somewhere that I've lost. I'll be sure to share that one as soon as I can.

If anyone has any suggestions as to what else I might be missing, do chime in. 

Although if it's anything generic/standard/classic/well-known-when-the-word-window-manager-comes-up, I've probably tried it before (blackbox, IceWM, JWM, all of the tilers, most legacy stuff). Really looking for obscure but interesting projects - you can see that a lot of the above are actually reimplementations of old, well-known projects.


I'm currently using a tweaked MATE. The tweaks are listed below:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Compositor: Compton.

Menus: MATE Main Menu and TopMenu global menus.

Task management: Plank dock.

Terminal: Guake.

Theme: A little grayish-schemed homebrew theme centered around a Clearlooks base with eOS window borders and Faenza-Cupertino icons.

Wallpaper: A charcoal played-in winter scene drawing I made a few months ago.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And here's a few screencaps of that DE in action.

Hello everyone, Its been awhile. Anyone know of any Alsa tweeks or configs that would benefit some decent equipment?

Slime scrot.

 

(For privacy's sake, the Lisp example was a random one found off the Interwebs)

Recently ditched my MATE config for E, and got its configuration finalized. Theme in use is the default Dark ETK theme + the matching e-gtk-theme for GTK apps + Azenis icons. Ditched Guake for Terminology and I'm also trying Midori out for a browser for a while in place of FF. Wallpaper is a Mustang SVO photo I found on image search.

I do not intend offense or anything, but its completely possible that you may or may not already know, so just to be sure,  the 'E' you refer to is for Enlightenment, so what you are using would be Enlightenment 19. Nice desktop, by the way. Enlightenment 17 was actually the first interface that I ever used under Linux when I first tried it on failing hardware, and then later it was my "gateway drug" into minimalist  wm's like openbox which then led to a short bout with i3 and then to sweet sweet BSPWM, although at the moment I am playing with Gnome 3.16 for trying a new gtk 3 theme with some effects that only work with Gnome. I also tend to try and play with major releases of DEs that I care about or new interfaces that seem interesting. I did a ton of desktop hopping before I realized that I didn't really want the desktop XD. As an Arch user, you may find that true for yourself XD.
