Two things you need to have: (1) sound output from your USB
headphones and (2) setting the USB headphones as the default
You will start with something like this:
aplay -D <pcm_name> some.wav
Here is for the default device:
aplay -D default some.wav
Here is using PCM names from "aplay -L":
aplay -D hw:CARD=PCH,DEV=0 some.wav
aplay -D plughw:CARD=PCH,DEV=0
Before you can get sound output your USB sound device must accept input.
Then figure out audible volume settings. That can be done
from the terminal using amixer.
Sound cards tend to have lots of mixer settings.
This may list some headphone related settings
amixer | grep phone
you may need to add the -c flag to select the appropriate
When posting, try to post the text of what you did and what
results you got, to best help your potential helpers!
