Redesign of Sound Card Module

Feature state

Currently the sound card module in YaST hides many options within an "Others" menu button. When adding a sound card the user needs to choose between three configuration ways: automatic, normal and advanced. It is very difficult for the user to choose the appropriate way for him.

Ideas for Improvement:

  • Moving "Volume" and "Start Sequencer" to the "Edit" section.
  • "Set As Primary Card" is now visible at once to the user
  • "Play Test Sound" is integrated into the "Edit" section
Workflow for "Add" a new sound card:
  • The user chooses only the vendor and the model.
  • All the other settings (volume and some advanced settings) can be adjusted via "Edit".
  • Joystick settings can be done in the "Joystick" module.
Mock ups for the redesign are available at:

mschmidkunz: I believe that re-designing this module is probably a good idea.

I hate to mix technology in design and feature discussions but in this case... I wonder if we need to make the module Pulse audio aware.

I agree. Just open another FATE regarding Pulse Audio awareness of the YaST module in addition to this one, ...:-)

Done, I have created 304936 to track the pulse-audio need in YaST.

I suggest to reject this for 11.3, it has been around for long enough without any priorities
