The analog works, yes, but I'm thinking the digital stream is going to the HDMI.

And .asoundrc is where you would set up the default card on boot IIRC. I had to play with it when I was trying to get a USB headset to work properly [which I eventually gave up on].

asoundconfig list, and sudo asoundconfig list list gave me an "Command not found" message.

Using code: gedit ~/asoundrc.asoundconf // Gives me a blank page.


As far as the analog goes. I have to manual switch from Digital Stereo Duplex IEC958 to Analog Stereo output for the Analog to work.

It's just .asoundrc so ~/.asoundrc nothing more. It's not there though unless you create it, so you really have to read up on ALSA and how to create/modify .asoundrc.... This is why I said it's a heck of a lot easier to install OSS4. Just read the wiki and follow it step by step. I just don't mess with ALSA any more because OSS4 has spoiled me by doing a lot of work for me. =)

'asoundconf' not 'asoundconfig'

Yeah. I swapped from GNOME to KDE, and Phonon does the same for me. my USB headset works out of the box and everything. I just need to figure out how to get flash to play sound through phonon, but thats a topic for a different thread.

In that case:
Code:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install asoundconf
sudo asoundconf list

Wow, complete fail now. aplay -l

Hmm...

Oh, asoundconf is part of a different package in ubuntu.
Code:
sudo apt-get install alsa-utils
sudo asoundconf list

And are you getting sound from the analog still, or did it stop?

Also, doesn't aplay need root to list devices?
