Hello guys,

I've got some issues with my KDE setup. I installed most of kde, except games and such. My problem is that Amarok and KDE is mute. I've got a Xonar DX soundcard, driver is ok, alsamixer levels are ok, and if I launch for example firefox and play a youtube song i get sound as well, so its not a sound issue, more like an issue with kde, phonon, gstreamer etc.

Problem is I have no idea what phonon or Gstreamer is, what is their purpose and why does KDE have to communicate with them, and can't seem to find any information at the Gentoo Wiki site.

Anyway when I go to System Settings -> Multimedia, At the Audio playback i can see 3 soundcards, Xonar DX (Multichannel) Xonar DX (Digital) and default. Mine should be Xonar DX (Multichannel), however when i click test, i get the error:

Code:

Failed to set the selected audio output device


Do I need phonon and gstreamer? I have no idea what they do, I didn't need them when I was using awesomewm only without any DE...


Any help would be appreciated.

Regards,

kiskoller

Emerging gstreamer with alsa flag solved the issue.
