Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453197
Try to play test sound: error is 'no element gconfaudiosink'
Last modified: 2008-09-09 16:05:56 EDT
This is a Lenovo Thinkpad x60s laptop running Rawhide.
When I try to play the test sound in gnome, I get the error dialog:
audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 !
audioconvert ! audioresample !
gconfaudiosink: no element "gconfaudiosink"
There is no sound from any programs, although I can get something
if I pipe stuff into /dev/audio or /dev/dsp.
I have every gstreamer-* RPM installed.
The soundcard is:
00-01: AD198x Digital : AD198x Digital : playback 1
00-00: AD198x Analog : AD198x Analog : playback 1 : capture 1
but I'm pretty sure this is NOT a hardware problem (as I say,
I can pipe stuff into /dev/audio just fine).
Sound really should be easier ...
[I always forget to search closed Bugzillas, since the default
is only to search open ones ... Anyway, after searching closed
I found that killing pulseaudio and restarting it (as my user,
not root), means that the test sounds work.
I haven't yet found out how to get sounds working in flash player
or totem yet, so that's what I'm trying now.
OK, totem is now working (after also restarting it).
Note I'm still having to kill and restart pulseaudio, so this is
definitely a bug.
Are you still seeing these problems ?
PA works fine for me, no killing necessary...
I am closing this bug now since the problems are gone.
Should this problem still be reproducible, please set "log-level=debug", log out and in again, and reopen this bug and attach pa's syslog output.
log-level=debug is to be set in /etc/pulse/default.pa, btw.
