[SOLVED] System wide graphical equalizer

[SOLVED] System wide graphical equalizer

Postby G74un3 » Apr 20th, '14, 13:04

Hello

I am new to Mageia and so far I am loving every single bit of it :D

I just have one small problem. Due to bad speakers I would like to have an system wide Equalizer preferably something with a GUI.

I have tried to use pulseaudio equalizer by installing the pulseaudio-module-equalizer package. But when I run qpaeq I get the following output:

Code: Select all
There was an error connecting to pulseaudio, please make sure you have the pulseaudio dbus module loaded, exiting...


I have been googling for hours and so far I can not find any solution. Can some of you help me?

Thank you in advance!

Sorry for not mentioning. Actually I have found the post you mentions and tried the solution with no result.

Maybe it is me that do not understand pulseaudio equalizer clearly enough so let me refraise my question:

When I have added the pulseaudio-module-equalizer where can I find it?

I have been looking in all the sound settings and everywhere I could think of and still have not found it.

Thank you in advance!

What you want to do, as your normal user, NOT as root:

Code: Select all
pactl load-module module-equalizer-sink
pactl load-module module-dbus-protocol

second step depending on your current setup, but it's probably required - otherwise you will see the following error:

[doktor5000@Mageia4 postgresql9.3]$ qpaeq
There was an error connecting to pulseaudio, please make sure you have the pulseaudio dbus module loaded, exiting...



Then run the equalizer:
Code: Select all
qpaeq
