Title: Deliver kde with pulseaudio

openSUSE-11.4: Done
Priority
Requester: Important

Requested by: H. Hansen (cyberbeat)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org

Description:
I use kde4 with pulseaudio since opensuse-11.2 and once setup, it
really works much nicer than the suse-default alsa-setup.
There is already support in kmix for volume and moving streams (still
missing some functionality from pavu-control, someone should continue
the work on kmix..).
Also phonon systemsettings supports pulse audio, and soundcard
priorities can be defined there for different application categories
(for the few applications using phonon..)
It is nice
- to move streams from any(!) application (using alsa-pulse-plugin) to
the soundcard you want, these settings are remembered
- to fallback to onboard device, when usb-"default"-device is
disconnected
- to be able to easily define the "main"-output of any soundcard as
input-stream for any application, for example recording something you
are playing digitally into audacity
- easy to setup system-wide audio-plugins such as pulseaudio-ladspa,
for example to cut off bass-frequencies for all applications
I really have no serious problems with pulseaudio, it is really matured
now.

I have infered from this message that openSUSE 11.4 will ship with
pulseaudio enabled by default. As for newer features in kmix they are
coming for 4.6. Colin Guthrie is the guy behind pulseaudio and kde
integration. If you want to help, he's the guy you want to reach.

Done for 11.4

+ #4: Jedi Beeftrix (jedibeeftrix) (2010-12-16 18:24:29) (reply to #3)
