    Equaliser Equalizer Equali*er


    Hi folks, there is a similar thread from two years ago but no useful responses.
    Is there a "global" equaliser for kde, so I can turn down the default bass output from my 5.1 speakers?

    I tried using VLC which has an Eq, but it seems to need to be invoked at every track, and does not seem to be able to save a custom set of settings..

    I am currently trying Amarok, but its EQ is greyed out in the menu, the help file says, not very helpfully that
    The built in equalizer is easy to use and works with all engines.
    Well it is not, and it doesn't!
    I would rather not use a "big" player like Amarok, I have had enough probs with WMP, Real Player, and I-Tunes copying my entire library into about seven different locations, and filling my hard drive..
    ....although in the 10 minutes I have spent trying it, it has impressed me with its search capabilities


    Kaffeine seems unable to play mp3! I can't be b******red to download codecs for each and every format!

    Any and all suggestions welcome, including other media/audio apps

    ..... and
    Despite Amarok's help file boast "The built in equalizer is easy to use and works with all engines. "
    I downloaded the xine engine...

    Now, it does not support mp3.
    Amarok sends me to a commercial site which wants $30.00 or so for a codec pack, or to register for spam to get just the mp3 abilities.

    I found the "1-click install" here:
    Multimedia - openSUSE-Community

    Yast does not like, giving me 16 conflicts and 12 conflicts under two different headings, like so:

    #### YaST2 conflicts list END ###
    I tried accepting YAST's suggestions, but the install hangs. /var/logs/yast2 is 60,000 lines long, (just for today!) so I won't paste it here.

    I then Un-installed Amarok, Kaffeine, and VLC/videolan and tried again. same results. Where should I go from here?

    I have looked at:
    Check your multimedia problem in ten steps - openSUSE Forums
    But I am not expert enough to really go through this, I do not know what results I SHOULD get, or what to do with them.

    Where should I go from here?
