I have Ubuntu version 18.04. Can someone tell me how to fix this: I opened Gnome ALSA Mixer and got this popup error message:
An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information for GNOME ALSA Mixer. Some of your configuration settings may not work properly.
Bad key or directory name: /apps/gnome-alsamixer/display_mixers/: Key/directory may not end with a slash /
I did a search for "gnome-alsamixer" and got a long list of file names. I don't know anything about these files. So, I don't mess with them? I also searched for "apps" and "display_mixers" separately and came up with nothing after several minutes.
I am trying to get audio to my speakers and headset simultaneously. I had audio out of both jacks prior to installing Audacity from the Ubuntu Software depository about a week ago? Now I can only get audio out of one jack.
I read where
paprefs for PulseAudio would enable multiple audio outputs from this website:
So I installed 'paprefs' from the Ubuntu Software depository. Then I did a [Restart]. It did not fix it. That's how I came to opening Gnome ALSA Mixer and got the error message. Gnome ALSA Mixer worked after I closed the popup. It had no fix either. I'm thinking that error could have something to do with my only getting audio out of one jack.
I have the code to install Audacity from the Terminal after uninstalling it if you think that might help? I have not used that code because it is not from a AskUbuntu member and I couldn't find it in Ubuntu Software. The code is from: https://www.how2shout.com/how-to/how-to-install-audacity-on-ubuntu-linux-using-terminal.html and is:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/audacity - and then:
sudo apt-get update - and then:
sudo apt-get install audacity
Thanks for any help you can provide, Rob
