Make the player sound quieter automatically when an incoming Skype callMake the player sound quieter automatically when an incoming Skype call

By default in Linux Mint, when playing music in the player: Rhythmbox, Audacious, Banshee, etc. and Totem (Video) when an incoming Skype call, the sound continues playing even after answering the call, although Skype 5 (Windows) automatically reduces the sound during a call.

In Linux PulseAudio has a feature that allows you to mute the player when a call comes in, but it is not enabled by default, at least in Linux Mint.

1. To enable this feature in Linux Mint, you must do the following:

Linux Mint 17

pactl load-module module-role-cork

For older versions

pactl load-module module-cork-music-on-phone

2. So this function was activated after login, you need to open the default.pa file for editing

sudo nano /etc/pulse/default.pa

And at the end of the default.pa file to copy/paste the line:

Linux Mint 17

load-module module-role-cork

For older versions

load-module module-cork-music-on-phone

Save the file and close the editor.

Good Luck!!!
