Need help with USB headset.

Post by avalon.vyerna » Fri Jul 04, 2008 1:34

Hello there. I am a new Sabayon user and I am loving it immensely. I currently have ver. 3.4f and I am having some issues with my new Cyber Acoustics headset. It is model number AC-850. I tried google-ing the problem and I found one link that recommends editing a file, but that file is not on my system. I am using the KDE desktop. When I plug it in, there is a blue light that comes on, but sound only comes through my speakers and the mic doesn't work. Can anyone please help?

Not that I have a USB headset, but have you tried running alsaconf as root in a Terminal window with the headset plugged in, followed by alsamixer to make sure all inputs and outputs are not muted and are turned up?
