I have two sound devices in my system, an analog device and a HDMI device,
which I do not use. Obviously the analog device is device 0.
When I enable the timidity.service in systemd, which is the same as timidity in
systemv, which uses the analog device, and I start a KDE session, KMix only
gets the HDMI device and the sound in this KDE session does not work.
Disabling timidity makes the analog device available, however often I need to
change the settings of the Main Channel to the analog device.
Same in System Settings. Apparently KMix assumes that the analog device is
As far as I remember from older versions of openSUSE, this was not a problem.
So there seems to be a regression.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the timidity.service in systemd before any KDE session is started.
2. Start a KDE session
3. Look at the available devices in KMix and notice that the start up sound of
KDE could not be heard.
No sound is heard.
The sound should be heard.
I don't know if this is related, but the process /usr/bin/pulseaudio remains
active after closing the KDE session.
Sometimes I need to close the KDE session, use the tty0 console to kill
pulseaudio remove the ~/.pulse* files and folder, after which I can start a KDE
session with the proper sound support.
I need timidity to play .mid (midi) files.
