Open File (doesn't matter which one, as long as it is a supported file format)
Project plays but no sound can be heard. The output level meters however, move as they should.
Nothing happens for about 15-20 seconds (very frustrating)
A dialogue window appears.
Playback device is set to ALSA: HDA Intel: AD198x Digital (hw: 0,1)
Change it to*ALSA: HDA Intel: AD198x Analog(hw: 0,0)
Nothing happens for about 30 seconds (extremely frustrating)
Nothing happens for about 8 seconds (not acceptable but not very frustrating either)
An error box appears: "Error while opening sound device. Please check the output device settings and the project sample rate."
The thing about the sample rate just has to be nonsense, because I never use anything else than 44.1 kHz. Whereever I look, it is set to 44.1 kHz and all my sound files are 44.1 kHz files.
I guess Pulse Audio is involved somehow, but I don't really understand what it's for and what to do with it. All I want to do is to edit some sound files and hear the result, which I could easily with Audacity on Ubuntu 7.04 and 7.10 on the very same laptop.
Any hints about next step in the troubleshooting procedure?
