Manjaro pulseaudio fix

Postby viking60 » 27 Dec 2013, 13:50

I am usually using openbox on manjaro (my own setup - not the community version) but i do "dualboot" with xfce.
In openbox I need to open pulseaudio volum control

Code: Select all

pavucontrol

To change the output device from headphone to line out.

For some reason Manjaro insists that I have a headphone :berserk2
That is no big deal though since I only have to right-click the speaker on the panel and adjust it.

When I log out and log in to xfce4 then pulseaudio may or may not be started.
I often get this error when I hit ALR+F2 and write pavucontrol:

--and that simply means that pulseaudio is not started.

In those cases hit ALT+F2 and enter pulseaudio --start and then you can enter pavucontrol to adjust your output device.

And life is good again.... :-D
