  1. Bug#453105: general: Gnome + Sound problem

    Package: general
    Severity: normal

    As users of Gnome should know, in order to enable Gnome System sounds (login sound, logout sound, gdm ready sound, click on command sound etc..) it is necessary to go to Preferences->Sound and
    enable sounds by software (ESD), and mark for play System sounds, and also have gnome-audio installed.
    The problem is that when i enable ESD, many other aplications stop sounding, and if i try to play a WAV file with aplay command, it reports to me that my audio device is busy. This is my audio
    device:

    00:08.0 Multimedia audio controller: Ensoniq ES1371 [AudioPCI-97] (rev 06)

    I think this is a bug of Debian becouse this problem is not present in other Linux distributions with Gnome in which ESD and aplay work together, and by this i know that my sound card support
    full duplex and can be used by both of them at the same time; in addiction in old releases of Debian, i am sure that this problem was not present.

    This problem is now pressent in Etch, Lenny and Sid.

    You should not install ESD; it is buggy as hell, and this is the reason
    why it isn't enabled by default in GNOME.

    If you want to share your ALSA devices with ESD, you can install
    libesd-alsa0 but I don't recommend that. If you really need a sound
    server, you should install PulseAudio which includes a compatibility
    layer for ALSA applications. It is considered to make PulseAudio the
    default sound system in GNOME, and we will probably follow upstream
    moves on this matter.

    With ESD and "Play system sounds" enabled and gnome-audio 2.0.0-2
    installed on my 2-week-out-of-date Sid box, Flash animations still
    plays thru Iceweasel and music thru gqmpeg. However "System Sounds"
    wav files don't play. The "Sound Events" test tone even plays while
    listening to music.
