Linux Audio Support / Re: mic not working?
« Last post by DarkGarnet on March 10, 2017, 07:45:01 PM »
Thank you very much, Dalek. I tried again to get the mic to work, but the computer started doing funny things and refused to connect to the internet. My dad had to plug it in to a wired connection to get it fixed. He also did some searches and found out that other people had been having the same problem. Apparently there was something my computer didn't have that it needed in order to use the mic, so it was trying to use the mic and it couldn't. That was what made the computer act funny. After he got that fixed, I decided that I didn't really want the trouble of figuring out what it needed to be able to use the mic. Maybe I'll get an exterior mic sometime, but I think I won't mess with this 10 year old computer any more. Thanks again for your response.

I would check to make sure your user is in the right groups.  I would check the permissions as well.  Given that it works in some programs, I would think those would be fine.  I don't know what desktop GUI you use but some handle permissions better than others.  Also, I know in the past, I have had to unmute the playing of audio in two separate programs.  For me, those would be alsamixer and Kmix.  Until I unmute both of those, no sound output.  Maybe the same is true for the mic??  Maybe there is two programs trying to control the mic??

I don't have a mic here so I can't give any real world experience.  I hope those ideas above will lead to something good tho. 
Linux Audio Support / mic not working?
« Last post by DarkGarnet on February 27, 2017, 03:45:08 AM »
I'm trying to figure out whether my mic does or does not work, and if not, how I can make it work.

I opened my Sound preferences and looked under "input". The little green bars respond to the sound of my breathing. The mic also showed up fine on an online "check your mic" test. So it seems like it's working.

So I tried to take a recording of my voice with Audio Recorder; but when I played the file, I couldn't hear sound. Now, the application I played it with has an option to show a waveform of the sound being played. All it showed was a flat line, meaning that no sound was being played. I tried recording again, closer to the mic, but I got the same result when I tried to play it back.

Then I opened the Driver Manager, and it says "This device is not working." Okay, fine. But then why is it detecting sound online and when I have Sound Preferences open?

Does anyone know what is going on with this? Is there a way to fix it? Thanks in advance.
Os Talk / Re: groups command
« Last post by dalek on August 25, 2016, 11:24:28 AM »
I don't know why it is doing that but I get similar results here.  I'm listed in a lot of groups in /etc/groups but the groups command only shows a few of them.  Perhaps they are not "active" or something??  It's interesting.

#groups vivian
vivian : dba admin

#grep vivian /etc/group
#grep dba /etc/group

dba a is a group local to system, Could someone explain why this is showing like this

Linux Kernel / Re: Help me. Kernel

Make sure you have unmuted everything.  Generally, everything is muted by default.  Depending on what all you have installed, you could have to unmute several things before it works.  When I first did this install ages ago, I had to unmute ALSA and Kmix.

I got an older Pc that I want to install Musix on by wiping the hard drive and having it run on there.
I want the OS Windows gone and I prefer to reformat and install Musix if possible on there.
What are the proper steps to do this?
