Reduction of sound on incoming call Skype in Linux Mint

 

If you play music in Rhythmbox, Audacious, Banshee, Totem (Video) and so on when an incoming call in applications such as Skype, Ekiga Softphone, SFLphone VoIP client and other VoIP applications, the music continues to play even after the call is answered. PulseAudio has a feature that allows you to pause the music when a call comes in, but it is not enabled by default.

 

For this we have to activate two modules PulseAudio.
That's the behavior that you should expect after activating the module:

Installation into Linux Mintt:

for Linux Mint 17/16/14

pactl load-module module-role-cork

for Linux Mint 13

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

Open the file default.pa to edit the following command:

cinnamon

sudo gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa

mate

sudo pluma /etc/pulse/default.pa

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

for Linux Mint 17/16/14

load-module module-role-cork

for Linux Mint 13

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

Save the file and exit the editor.

Please note that currently it does not work with web browsers, so if you are watching a video on YouTube in Firefox, Chrome, etc., video will not be suspended when a call.

Good Luck!!!
