Q: How to select soundcard - Ubuntu

Hello NG, I got a kubuntu dapper and a kubuntu edgy system. Both have on-board sound and also an extra soundcard. All of them are recognized, I see their mixers in "kmix". How to I select which soundcard is to be used for playback? Back on my SUSE days I could simply configure them via yast in the desired order. How to do this with (K)ubuntu? Any pointers are welcome!

    Default Q: How to select soundcard

    Hello NG,

    I got a kubuntu dapper and a kubuntu edgy
    system. Both have on-board sound and also
    an extra soundcard. All of them are recognized,
    I see their mixers in "kmix".

    How to I select which soundcard is to be
    used for playback? Back on my SUSE days
    I could simply configure them via yast
    in the desired order. How to do this with
    (K)ubuntu?

    Any pointers are welcome!

    I asked the same question just a few days ago.
    Look to the thread "how to change the used soundcard"
    within this group (id: eggeu9$o1f$00$t-online.com)
    and, because it's an alsa - Hardware-problem look at the NG
    news://de.comp.os.unix.linux.hardware
    to the thread
    "Soundkarten werden bei jedem Neustart in anderer Reihenfolge erkannt"
    (ID: egqqtn$j5r$02$t-online.com)
    und
    "soundkarten auswählen unter alsa"
    (ID: egnj67$4gu$00$t-online.com)

    In short: You have to look at the configuration of each sound-program and
    tell him, what hardware to use.
    hw:0,0
    is the card-0
    hw:1,0
    is the card-1
    which card has which number ? look at /proc/asound/cards

    Hi!

    Thank you for these pointers!
    I'm a bit suprised that there
    is no established and convenient
    mechanism on a distribution like
    (k)ubuntu...
