Hydrogen wont Load after I made changes to config

The first time a downloaded it, everything seemed to work fine. The only thing was that the bass drums sounded real bad. It sound like my speakers were blown and couldn't play clear bass any more, but my speakers are fine and they play much heavier bass on anything I play outside of Hydrogen.

So I went into hydrogen config and changed the sound card from auto to ALSA and increased the sampling rate to the highest setting. This fixed the problem and the base sounded much better. The base was still a bit choppy though so I went back to config and on a long shot I raised the buffer size to 2000. I had no idea what an acceptable buffer size would be.

After these changes I closed Hydrogen and now when I restart it it does not load. I usually load it through the GUI but I received no error message when I did this.

When I loaded through the terminal I got the Following Message:

(E) AlsaAudioDriver connect error in snd_pcm_hw_params_set_period_size: Invalid argument
(E) void* H2Core::alsaAudioDriver_processCaller(void*) Can't set realtime scheduling for ALSA Driver
Segmentation fault

After this I uninstalled Hydrogen and reinstalled. After I reinstall its the same problem.

I also downloaded deborphan to remove the orphaned config file that normally gets left behind after I uninstall, but it still won't load.

Your Assistance would be much appreciated

Hi!

Have you deleted the config file with the wrong buffersize ??

With deborphan I found a config file which I deleted. If there's another one I woudn't knw where to find it.

Ah, that was the most likely the global config. Your user configuration file is located in /home/username/.hydrogen/hydrogen.conf.
