Hi,

I have alsa set up on my laptop and also KDE. I am trying to get the sound to go to my usb headset rather than to the built-in speakers on the laptop.

When I do:
Code:

dmesg >> /dev/dsp2


The sound comes out of the headphones.

When I do:
Code:

dmesg >> /dev/dsp


The sound comes out of the built-in speakers.

This is a new install of gentoo.

I would appreciate any help.

Sincerely,

donjames

Have you tried the settings under System Settings - Multimedia?

Hi,

I'm not sure. Are these settings in the kernel configuration?

Thanks,

Moved from Multimedia to Duplicate Threads.
See .asoundrc help.
