    Microphone not working in Steam and Teamspeak at the same time

    Hey, I've had a problem with Teamspeak since i started using it for the first time.

    The problem is that Steam will not detect my mic if I open Teamspeak first and then Steam. This makes it impossible for me to communicate with teammates in CS:GO.

    Opening Steam first, on the other hand, and then Teamspeak, gives me an error message that says "the configured playback device was not found."

    In short, it's impossible for my mic to work in Teamspeak and in-game at the same time.

    I have the following specs:

    Logitech G35 USB headset
    OpenSUSE Leap 42.1
    Asus M5A97 R 2.0
    AMD FX-8350
    MSi R9 280x

    It's also worth mentioning that I had a similar problem before switching from Windows to Linux. In Windows it would work fine if I opened Teamspeak first and then Steam. But opening Steam first and then Teamspeak gave me an error that would say "The configued speakers were not found.

    I tried installing Pulse audio as a method of choosing playback device/capture device, but suprise suprise, it gives me an error message when I try to start it

    Have you tried disabling exclusive device control?

    In Windows it's in the device properties -> Advanced. Not sure whether or not Linux has such a thing or where it could be found if such a thing exists.
