Configuration of the PulseAudio ALSA plugin
Can anybody give an example where to use the pcm.pulse setting? --BertiBoeller 12:33, 17 October 2009 (EDT)
Should user be in group pulse-access as well to be able to use rt scheduling? - Xabre 18:33 CET September 5, 2010
Dbus before pulseaudio?
Is there a reason to start dbus before pulseaudio anymore? Shouldn't it be removed from the Running section? --Duckgrindrr 18:25, 7 July 2011 (EDT)
I think the lib32-* libraries are no longer needed since flashplugin11 is a native x86_64 version.
Users in audio group
There is a note in the Installation section saying that PA wiki recommends that users should not be part of the "audio" group.
But in fact PA wiki says that if the files permissions in
/dev/snd/ don't contain a plus character in the end (this is the case on my laptop, so I assume this is the case on Arch more generally), users must be part of the "audio" group.
VirtualBox + ALSA + PulseAudio = All Looks Good But No Audible Sound
Not sure if this should be added to the page, but I encountered the following bug under similar conditions to the filer (with the exception of using KDE 4 rather than GNOME 3, however that doesn't make a difference in this particular case):
The same longer-term workaround as listed in the bug report appears to be working for me so far (following the Muted audio device instructions on the page and then adjusting the "Master" channel volume worked for me to immediately recover the volume, but it seems it won't stay that way across sessions as per bug report).
dmix backend (ALSA)
Currently, padevchooser can't be installed from AUR... and there is no maintainer either. The references to it should be removed or the package adopted and fixed (if that's possible nowadays).
