USB Headset not working in 3.7.0

Post#1 by clevekat07 » 30 Apr 2016, 15:31

:wall: I must prefaces this by saying im a noob with linux :wall:

So I am creating a Training Kiosk for 12 users.
They will mostly be playing flash videos etc.

I've tested the kiosk and I have confimred it to work with the 3.5 mill jack
But when I plug in a USB Headset it does nothing, not even youtube.

In my config I have the removeable_devices=yes

Im not sure what im doing wrong or how to configure.
the Headset is a logitech h390, I have tried other manufacturers as well

Could this be a easy fix or will I have to pay to add this feature?

USB headset must be set as default sound card and default microphone in the system. You could set default soundcard in the wizard but you wont be able to do the same for microphone as this feature is not implemented yet. It will be done in next kiosk release (end of May/early June).
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
