    USB Headset with Wine


    I've got a USB logitech headset that I want to use with wine. How would I go about setting this up for my default sound device? I want to play steam games and be able to use the headset for it, but I haven't found where I can do this. I already know the alsa device name (had to config amarok to use it with the headset) "hw:Headset". Any help would be appreciated

    I'm using alsa and would prefer to continue to do so, as I usually have amarok running in the background on low volume. I do have cedega, but wine seems to work better, amazingly enough. And I don't have to pay for that

    From what I googled for you, I'm seeing where oss is what is going to work best in teamspeak.

    Another option: You could run down to the computer store, find a reasonably priced SoundBlaster, and configure it for OSS and Steam/Wine, leaving your other card alsa and free to play music.
