How to change Alsa default device?
« on: 2018/11/04, 18:31:30 »

speaker-test doesn't play any audio and anything that relies on alsa (e.g. zsnes) does not work


Chrome and firefox still play audio, pavucontrol works, alsamixer opens...
Code: [Select]

I want sound to come out of HDMI, so I need to use one of the NVidia devices. How do I change my default audio device?



I'm banned forever - the Mods had good reasons to do so.
