Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-settings-daemon

Ubuntu Lucid alpha 3

I'm using several USB headsets with chip set C-MEDIA and Analogue Headsets. To hear my voice playback without using Pulseaudio loopback module because delay it's too big, in 8.04 and 8.10, I fix it in gnome-volume-control panel preferences. there are 2 fields for microphone :
Playing and recording.
Now the GUI is different there is only one for recording you can select input source it's all, so I can't adjust my playback.
I found a temporary solution using alsamixer, I'm administrator of several classroom and normal users can't each time open alsamixer in terminal mode. It's not friendly.

Above all if I remove legacy sound card in bios to take USB card by default I can't launch alsamixer I get this message : "cannot open mixer : No such file or directory" but it's another bug. Let me know where I must report it ?

You plug a USB headset or Analogue you open gnome-volume-control , you can
only adjust capture volume from microphone.

 * Could you make clear what else you would want to see happen?

In 8.04, 8.10 and 9.04 in gnome-volume-control in preferences you could
select volume input microphone for recording
or listening. Since 9.10 it's impossible by GUI, I thought it will be fixed
in 10.04 because is regression, we are using that for Open Source Digital
language laboratory based on italc and pulseaudio ( LLSOLL project).
The only way to tune the microphone listening volume is to open Alsamixer in
terminal mode, it is not user-friendly for students and teachers.
There are 2 items in alsamixer for microphone :

   1. Mic : is the loopback of your voice
   2. Capture : is the volume for recording

 Is not user-friendly for students and teachers.

Best regards

Eric

Hi,

I join several screen-shots showing differences between each version.

I found a solution with gnome-alsamixer for analogue headset I can tune
playback microphone (for monitoring) but it's not available with USB sound
card or headset as you can see in the screen-shot.

Thanks a lot.
