Hi guys, I have a problem and the cause is lack of knowledge.
I’m usign Manjaro KDE, but I would love to use a WM and after some research I choose Qtile. To be sure to migrate with a backup I created a second user only for Qtile environment. I think the main point here is not the window manager but my lack of knowledge in arch. As said I have two users, a kde user (main installation, for backup session purpose) and a Qtile user for daily use and experiment. This mean separate configuration files for homes folder and, if I will be confortably with the WM, I will uninstall KDE and delete the first user. My issue is that Qtile don’t have sound and I don’t know how to solve the problem. I had tried some solution found via google but nothing really helped.
Of what I understood, the audio is working fine on “motherboard sound chip” but is not what I wnat to use. I have a second card that is working fine on KDE, a Sound Blaster Z. Pulse audio daemon is running it seems, and with alsamixer I can see the device and change volumes. But “I think” that the system in Qtile outputs the sound on the default “motherboard chip”. On KDE I had set the sound blaster as main device but on Qtile I don’t really know how to do it.
As I said, I want to change the default sound device only for the Qtile user and not for the whole system, because I don’t want to screw up KDE in any way. Do you have any advice?
