Help! Unable to restore alsa as audio interface on Ubuntu

Having trouble with LMMS? Ask about it here.
Hello everyone,
unfortunatly i changed the Audio Settings into Dummy (no sound output) and the midi settings into Dummy (no midi support). Now I'm trying to restore alsa and alsa-raw midi but as soon as I restart Lmms and the Audio Settings window, Dummy is still there. I've already tried to reinstall the program but nothing changed.
I hope you can help me out of this situation.
I'm talking about LMMS 1.1.3-7 on Ubuntu 18.04.
The settings are stored in a file named .lmmsrc.xml. This will be situated in your $HOME. Just delete(or rename) this file and lmms will launch with the default values and recreate .lmmsrc.xml when closing.

And lmms 1.1.3 is a bit dated. We are about to release the next stable release 1.2.0 and the latest beta is more stable with new freatures and bugfixes.

It's available here:
https://lmms.io/download/#linux
deleting the file doesn't work. I installed the 1.2 version but seems that there is a problem with the resolution because everything is bigger than my screen. How can i manage it?

Unfortunately it is a linux issue. If you go to an Ubuntu forum, they may have an answer, because high-end screens 2 & 4K are getting popular, and more people own one. The Ubuntu community must know a fix(?)
If you indeed find one, please share the solution here!

Besides that, since you are new in Forum

It's an lmms issue. Our earlier issues with large screen used to be "too tiny" and now more than one person has reported "too large"

@giakristin I've seen reports on this recently but can't find a good link to that discussion. Will look into it though.
I think the most recent changes regarding screen size was in rc8 so if you aren't bored yet you could try one of the previous versions. rc7?

Hi mate :!:

I Thought I was the only one who got headaches with this display bug...

I'm using lmms 1.2 rc8 on ubuntu studio v18.04 on a 1080p TV as monitor.
After strugling and diving in google I managed to make it work. :mrgreen:
It seems to be a QT releavant bug.

All you got to do is to create as root user a file called gnome-qt.sh in the /etc/profile.d directory
In this file juste type this :

Code: Select all

export QT_AUTO_SCREEN_SCALE_FACTOR=0
I got this when i started to search about QT displaying bug in ubuntu.

I don't have anymore the link to the topic I found cause i tought it was not a general problem but one with my conf ,
but if you want it then I may search about it.

Please let me know if that work for you.

PS: pardon my poor English, i'm French.

See you :!:

This is excellent stuff! I would like anyone that has this issue to test out this method, and if it works more generally, it will be added to the docs.
