I am using Ubuntu 12.04... I wan to tune my acoustic guitar using Lingot.... But it gives just no response to any sound... I tried changing the

AUDIO_DEV = /dev/dsp


AUDIO_DEV = /dev/audio

as read on a forume but no luck.... I have Logitech headphones..

Please, also tell me if I can redirect the system's sound output to Lingot's sound input so that I can identify the notes of song that is being played (say in VLC player)...

My current audio settings of Lingot:

Audio settings: ALSA

Audio device: plughw:0

Change plughw:0 and put plughw:1,0 I think you just need to do that.
