I am running Linux (Debian Squeeze), and I currently have PulseAudio
0.9.21 on my machine that is controlling my sound - and it's wonky as
heck, but I'm working out some of the details.
The big detail I'm concerned about is this - if I boot into Windows, it
will automatically mute my main speakers if I connect my headphones to
the front panel jack. Not so with Linux, at this point - it will
simply play through the headphones and main speakers. This can be a
problem, as manually switching this each time is a pain in the neck,
and I have roommates who, due to work shift requirements, bed down
To note, I am using Gnome as my interface of choice in X.
So the nutshell question - how do I configure my sound so that my
speakers mute when I plug in headphones? As an aside, what more
information is needed to best answer this question?
