Configuring a Logitech ClearChat Pro USB Headset with SuSE 10.2
Hi ..after struggling to configure my headset and succeeding I thought I should at post what I did to help Linux newbies like myself who like using the near idiot-proof newer versions!
I have a Lenovo T43 and am currently using Suse 10.2 (because Suse 11.0 just would not work properly!).
I bought a Logitech ClearChat Pro USB headset.
Eventually I configured it in YAST...like this (this involves quite a few instructions, but it IS EASY!)
1. <YAST / Hardware / Sound />
It showed only one sound card (the in- built one) configured as index 0 (in this case a AC'97 Audio controller
2. so I clicked on <Add> / then
3. Left column - <All>
Right drop down <USB Audio - Generic>
4. then <Next> ....
So now I had 2 configured sound configurations
0 AC'97 Audio controller
1 USB Audio
5. I selected the <USB Audio> then <Other> (drop-down on right) and selected <Volume>.
I increased sound volume and also mic volume (that was at 0)
Then <Finish> saving those settings ...
I then tested it on Personal Settings (Configure Desktop) / Desktop/ Sound/ and managed to get a sound in the headset, but couldn't test the mic... so I went into Skype and tested there (by calling echo 123). It didn't work....
6. I went back to YAST (to stage 5 above)...having selected the <1 USB Audio> and going back to <Other> (drop down on right) and selected <Set as primary card>
After selecting <Finish> and testing again on Skype, it worked fine...
I notice now that 2 configured YAST sound settings are
0 USB Audio
1 AC'97 Audio controller
I hope this doesn't mess sound up later, but imagine if I am not using the headset I might have to manually go back into YAST and change the "Set as primary card" to the in-built sound controller?
Anyway the headset works now, so I thought I should post this for others in a similar situation...
Hope this helps!
