Skype Linux - Problem with Audio Playback
  

Hello,
I just installed Skype on Gutsy, and I have a concern. No way to make a call, I always answer: Call failed: problem with audio playback. With starting skype via terminal get some error message, which I have no idea about. So, can you please help me with this. Thank you.

Re: Skype Linux - Problem with Audio Playback

I have the same error + A game with TeamSpeak, sound on the first roll. On after a conflict between application bat file to gain access to the sound card. (Snd_pcm_dmix_open) Unable to open slave, I'm looking how to activate the slave under alsa, but I have not found any help on this yet. If you have any information regarding the same, then please post back. Thanks in advance.

This is essay, it worked for me, it may closed tt audio devices using the software before, because skype is not working at the same time we use these audio player.
Code:
$ Gksudo gedit / etc / esound / esd.conf
after that just follow this
Code:
change: = 0 auto_spawn
by: auto_spawn = 1

Re: Skype Linux - Problem with Audio Playback

I installed Skype, but I did not sound that works. My headset works perfectly in all applications I tried (KDE Sound Recorder and Audacity), but on Skype, when I want to try to call, he replied:
Code:
Problem with audio playback device
I am not sure where is the problem, yet my sound card works perfectly. Thank you in advance.

Re: Skype Linux - Problem with Audio Playback

You have not left open amaork or other software?? closes everything and also skype and then open skype .. I too had this pb because I had left open rhythmbox . Amendment to the peripheral of your apps to see if anything is on alsa, you look on the side alsa-oss-Pulse Audio (hardy), Oss Avoid if possible.

Re: Skype Linux - Problem with Audio Playback

I'm in Gutsy and I use the latest version of Skype. What you mean, I use KDE and not Gnome cons. It's good I understood what you meant, but it has nothing changed, cons in Skype instead of the default, I put my card on his first choice all the list, that is either for incoming and outgoing and no worries. Thing I do not understand because until now it did not work. Anyway, remains for me to recognize how expensive by Ubuntu (and non-main board ) My integrated sound card to always have plugged the headset and speakers at the same time.

a packet containing skype
: ~ # Aptitude install skype-static-oss
The following NEW packages will be automatically installed:

The following packages will be automatically REMOVED:
skype
The following NEW packages will be installed:

The following packages will be REMOVED:
