Help with Ubuntu Software Center, Skype and sound

Postby LiNuXReVoLuTioN » Sat Jan 29, 2011 3:21 pm

Hi, I use Lubuntu and I wanna install Ubuntu Software Center. Is that possible? Also how I add Skype on my start up applications? Finally the sound is very low how to boost it up?

Hi,

1: have a look at "synaptic" and "apt-get".
2: copy the Skype's *.desktop file from "/usr/share/applications" to "~/.config/autostart"
3: Have a look at "alsamixer" or "gmixer".

1: apt-get is the command line util for synaptic, never mind.
2: Here's mine:

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Skype
Comment=Skype Internet Telephony
Exec=skype
Icon=skype.png
Terminal=0
Type=Application
Encoding=UTF-8
Categories=Network;Application;
Copy that in a new textfile and save it as "Skype.desktop". How did you install Skype anyway?
3: type in alsamixer in the console, an old fashioned command line GUI should appear. With it you can adjust your volume, have a look at Master and PCM.

I tried that with alsamixer the sound volume is a bit better but still it needs to be boosted. I try to create a file with the name Skype.desktop but it says that I dont have the access to do that.... but I am admin.
