Microsoft Lifechat LX-3000 [Solved]

Postby yodawg » Fri Apr 04, 2008 15:27

I have a Microsoft Lifechat LX USB headset, and am trying to get it working with Sabayon. Honestly, I have no idea how to configure any of this. The sound, etc and am kinda new to linux.

My soundcard is: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97

hm... you can try alsa-config to see if it recognizes it as a new sound device, or just try kmix.

It may sound obvious, but did you remember to unmute it in kmix and kill kmilo?

I did a quick google for you. I dont have this headset nor do I deal with them at all.

But I managed to find an intriguing tidbit. A USB 'sound device/headset' Will be shown seperately from the sound card. So you're not looking to unmute anything on the soundcard. Looks like you need to use alsaconf or whatnot to set it up...I'll come back and edit in some more if I have time to look around later. My guess is that you may need a kernel module as well.

edit1: YOU DO NOT NEED KERNEL MODULE I DONT THINK..IF YOU DO ITS BUILT IN SABAYON ALREADY. oops..sorry bout them caps..too lazy to go back and fix it..You may not have seen it in kmix, but if your headset is being recognized, you should have an option in there to switch soundcards.

What I mean is soimewhere in the config there should be a drop down box or something like that to select your other sound device (I dont have multiple sound cards anymore but when I did, then kmnix played along..its been so long now i cant rememeber the specific option.)


to find out if its being recognized by your computer do this...

'dmesg | grep LifeChat' and also try 'cat /var/log/messages | grep LifeChat' and you also might try 'lsusb' as well...good luck

Yeah, I googled before and found the dmesg command. I ran that and saw that 'snd-usb-audio' got unregistered. So I googled that and found the modprobe command. Now it works. Thanks.

BTW: Is that your CHILD? :twisted:

Explain further..It worked, and then it didnt?? what was the error in dmesg causing it not load/unload???

and yeah, that my girl..the pic is about a year old though :)


edit: I think the part you saw where it was 'unregistered' was simply when you unplugged the headset...although why you had to manually modprobe it is the question..you need to post the relevant parts of dmesg and /var/log/messages
