I went from Picroft to Mycroft on Ubuntu 18.04 to make it a bit easier to develop skills. Now I’m trying to use Mycroft on Ubuntu Mate 18.04 (not a fan of Ubuntu’s default interface ).
However, I can’t get Mycroft to listen, at all. I’m using a Snowball Blue mic which is working fine. I went through audio troubleshooting; recording works fine, playback works fine. I manually set the source, and checked the volume using alsamixer. All seems well, but still not listening.
The mic level bar is and stays empty. I’ve read on the forum that running a soundtest before starting the services helps, or starting the services manually, but no dice.
It did work for a little while on Ubuntu by the way, but stopped working soon after. Didn’t much look into it then.
You can download all the logs here, and here are a few screenshots:
If you need any more info (or SSH access, single purpose machine) please let me know. Thanks!
