Call me simple but on pavucontrol I go to the output device tab, then choose the advanced option. There I enter 600ms to latency. Problem solved. But that's just silly me.

I tried lots of different options to get and set audio volume, but in the end the "best" method changes when you use different audio devices and distros, so it's always a problem to find a way to do this. I ended up settling on this very good project: https://github.com/falconindy/ponymix It provides a very clean CLI interface to manage your audio devices ...

You can use pavucontrol (PulseAudio Volume Control) to configure the input and output to use. Look at the tab "Output Devices"; You can set the output by changing "Port".

Stop jackd when you don't use it using qjackctl graphical interface : just click "stop" to exit jackd To mute the direct mic/line input sound you ear, run alsamixer in a terminal . Use arrow left/right keys to select "mic" or "line" fader, then use down arrow key to lower the volume (or M to mute). This will not affect the recorded sound level. You may ...

It is going to vary with hardware and my guess is that you need 2 separate sound cards or a sound card / mixer capable of such separation. You can then configure pulseausio to send output to specific locations / cards with pavucontrol , in the playback tab One may need to install pavucontrol , either with apt-get or from the software center. sudo ...

I found that typing alt+f2, typing gksudo, entering gedit, clicking open, browsing manually to the file, modifying and then saving was the only successful way to fix my issue. For some reason navigating to it using the terminal wasnt working. AS I WAS MIS-SPELLING ETC AS ECT... Thanks Steeldriver

This is an old question, but I had the same problem and after some Googling (where I mostly found people who agreed it wasn't possible) and reading some man pages, I have now developed a solution based on user2330377's idea. First you need to create a noise profile for SoX. Just use any audio recording program to record a few seconds of noise, then cd into ...

Install the blueman package and run blueman-manager. Right-click on your headset and choose Remove. This should "unpair" your headset. You can always re-pair using the same tool if you want to connect again. It's not perfect, but may be a usable workaround for you.

Somewhat of a fix for anyone else with this problem. I wrote a quick script which removes the pulseaudio xprops and then starts Clementine. It's below in case anyone else needs it, although I would prefer a "don't do that!" checkbox... #!/bin/bash for p in PULSE_COOKIE PULSE_SERVER PULSE_SESSION_ID PULSE_ID; do xprop -root -remove $p done clementine

You can change the system alerts sound level by this way: Go to the "gear cog" in the upper right corner of the screen. Select System settings... Click on Sound. Click on the Sound Effects tab. Lower the Alert volume to a comfortable level (or mute it). Here you're a screenshot:

You can reset all the pulseaudio User Configuration rm - rf .config/pulse; pulseaudio -k This file is known to get corrupted, and you said you did an upgrade so this seem plausible.

I have had this issue with my audio volume resetting to 100% after reboot ever since I started using Linux two years ago. Basically the advice given above by GigabyteProductions is leading me to the right place, and it should really be working, but it isn't working on my system. So I had to look a little further, and I have learnt a great deal, albeit not ...

I recently started having the same issue. I dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 14.04. The issue seems to have started after Windows update installed a new Realtek HD Audio driver. A soft reboot from Windows to Linux results in audio consisting entirely of pop and crackle sounds. Completely unusable. While in this state the headphone jack on the front of my case ...

My experience was with Audacity, had worked easily enough in previous Ubuntu versions. I'm now using 10.14 LTS. I installed the pavucontrol, and soon got it working. Not without fiddling with a few things. See below Make sure you go to Configuration in the pavucontrol tool. I had to select "Analog stereo ouput". Then go to Audacity and choose Pulse Pulse ...

You can list all applications producing sound by using pacmd list-sink-inputs. You'll get a list of indexes with indented details per source. Then you'll want to look at the "state" field. If it is "RUNNING", then it's playing sound. Directly below, you'll find "sink", which is which output it's playing to. Underneath, you'll find a "properties" field which ...

As a workaround, you can search for the "startup applications" app, click "add" and name it "soundon" or whatever you want and place the command pkill -f jackd in the command box. You can leave comment blank it doesn't matter what you put here. The command should run automatically next time you login and sound should work.

This: sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover worked for me on Ubuntu 14.10 (Lenovo x240) to have at least my bluetooth device listed in pulseaudio.
