           Summary: gstreamer0.8-alsa ignores ~/.asoundrc
           Product: Ubuntu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: i386
        OS/Version: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: gstreamer0.8-alsa
        AssignedTo: desktop-bugs at lists.ubuntu.com
        ReportedBy: tmpusr67 at dansted.org

I am trying to use text2speech under Ubuntu. However, none of the   
utilities seem to offer an option to specify the correct   
soundcard. For this reason I put  
pcm.!default {  
type hw  
card 1  
ctl.!default {  
type hw  
card 1  
in ~/.asoundrc. "aplay test.wav" correctly  plays to my headset, but e.g. kttsmgr  
from package kttsd still plays to my hifi system despite me having selected gstreamer 
alsa-sink as the audio output device.
