I am trying to get my headset (Logitech H390) to work on a new linux installation (centos 6.4). Unfortunately I am unable to hear anything from the headset. I have tried several options from the sound configuration window with no result (kmod-alsa installed)

Tried google, but no luck there, since the 2 solutions I found require the kernel to be recompiled.

Is there a simpler solution to this problem?

EDIT: After using the headset I cannot hear anything! Something is definitely wrong with the sound card/and or the drivers.

Any help appreciated

Do you have a kernel version that needs to be recompiled? –  CL. Aug 8 '13 at 9:17
    
No i don't. I am looking for an alternative solution. –  andreas Aug 8 '13 at 11:36

OT: CentOS may not be a good idea for desktop use. Lots of packages are not up-to-date, and lots of (desktop use) packages are missing from repos. –  hexchain Aug 8 '13 at 15:31

Ubuntu, Fedora or OpenSuSE seem like a better option for a beginner. Try starting up pavucontrol or alsamixer in the console. Maybe the volume is just down. –  queueoverflow Aug 8 '13 at 15:39

sound card? do you have one installed? sound cards and USB headsets are two separate audio devices. You might have the sound card enabled and the USB headset disabled. –  Keltari Aug 8 '13 at 16:37
