View Full Version : Package for Pulseadio Device Chooser ?
20th September 2009, 06:25 AM
A thread on getting audio to work in FC11 http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=225660&highlight=audio mentions using Applications->Sound and Video->Pulse Audio Device Chooser. I don't see that on my menu under Sound and Video. What is the name of the package that contains this application? And what is the name of the executable for it?

Here you go:
rpm -q --whatprovides /usr/bin/padevchooser

Thank you. I installed the package from yum. I now have it listed on my menu.
When I start it from the menu, it produces a thumbnail window on the toolbar but never runs. When I run padevchooser from the command line, it simply hangs.
Sound doesn't work on my FC11 machine. It once did. Perhaps some update broke it. (I haven't yet tried the complete uninstall of pulseaudio as recommended in that thread. I'm merely using the thread as a source of hints. )
I read on the site for padevchooser:
"Obviously padevchooser requires an installation of PulseAudio (version 0.9.2), compiled with ZeroConf support. For being discovered correctly PulseAudio servers need to load module-zeroconf-publish and module-native-protocol-tcp."
Does this mean I should see these modules in /proc/modules? (I don't.)

You found the right thread I would suggest you follow the steps in that thread to set up Pulseaudio. It is the best guide I have found.
You need to have the avahi-daemon service running for Device Chooser to work.

I think you are supposed to right click on the device chooser PulseAudio Applet then you can mouse over to set your defaults from that pop up menu. It's not clear from the instructions how to do that.
