Logitech Clearchat + Skype + KDE with Phonon problem

9 November 2011 One Comment

This is a holder page for a bit more information on the issue but basically Phonon won’t retain it’s settings. The clearchat works fine but Phonon won’t use it by default or hold the priority you give it.

The short answer is to install pavucontrol

sudo apt-get install pavucontrol

Then run pavucontrol and turn your internal mic off and Phonon will then use your USB Clearchat. Enjoy

    This ALMOST worked, and thanks for the tip.
    Wish KDE would just abandon Phonon, there is no need for it whatsoever.
