Hi all,

for some reason notification tunes do not work with skype.

If I go in "options->Sound Devices" and try "Make a test call" the sound works fine, but the button "Make a test sound" doesnt work.

net-im/skype 4.2.0.11-r1
media-sound/pulseaudio 5.0-r1

Any help and idea is welcome, thanks!

Efo

1) rm -Rf .config/pulse
2) check if alsamixer is muted

Hi nenemsis5,

Thank you for the reply.

I dont have the ".config/pulse" tree, and alsamixer is not muted; I dont think "Make a test call" would work (i.e. make a sound) if alsamixer were muted.

This is weird...

If I try anything below 4.2.0.11 I get a "Segmentation fault", everything else (including 4.2.0.13) has the posted issue.
