I've got a Sager laptop that I'm tring to get audio working under Centos 5.5 64 bit. (It does work with the Win 7 boot). I followed FAQ #4 and did not find my Vendor:Device ID pairing on the Device ID page. Here's what I tried so far...
So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)
I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).
I am new to Linux and after a lot of research I settled on CentOS to be my OS for Linux. But I am having trouble with sound right now as I can not play audio. The command system-config-soundcard opened a gui for audio configuration saying following device is detected - Intel Corp. 82801(ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller.
Ouput for some commands are given below:: [root@localhost ~]# lspci 00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07) 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07) .....
Clicking on the volume icon gives me message that either Gstreamer plugins are not installed or sound card is not configured.
While Trying to install gstreamer using YUM, I got following message: [root@localhost ~]# yum install gstreamer Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile ..... Setting up Install Process Package gstreamer-0.10.20-3.el5.x86_64 already installed and latest version Package gstreamer-0.10.20-3.el5.i386 already installed and latest version Nothing to do [root@localhost ~]#
So I guess gstreamer are installed but how to configure the sound card or is there any other problem.
I've installed CENTOS 5.3 on my laptop, on dual boot with windows xp. The problem is that my wireless network manager doesn't find any networks. Another laptop with fedora 10 installed finds the network, so the problem is not the network. I guess it's a problem with the wireless driver / firmware, as i had this problem on fedora some time ago, and i've solved installing the firmware. Now i've installed the firmware, i rebooted, and it still doesn't find any network.
I'm trying to make my system automatically shutdown once the battery level is low, but still without success. I've tried kpowersave, gnome-power-manager, kpower, klaptop but none of these worked for me. Well, I can't imagine I would be that stupid, but simply it doesn't work. In all cases mentioned above (kpower, klaptop, gnome-power-manager) I've tried to setup the laptop to shutdown once the defined level is reached, but the laptop never actually switched off unless all the battery was drained.
Btw. I think all the above mentioned apps only work once the user is logged in. But I'd like the solution to work also when the PC is on without anyone logged in. I thought I could write a bash script based on parsing of acpitools output and define it as a service, which would monitor the battery level, but I simply don't believe there isn't any functional solution to this.
I just purchased an HP G56-129WM laptop with Windows 7. Audio worked great under Windows. I've removed windows and installed Ubuntu 10.04 and fully patched it. Now my audio doesn't work at all. I don't recall if it worked prior to patching it after the Ubuntu install because I patched it immediately. Does anyone have any insight on getting my audio to work?
When I close the lid of my notebook computer and it goes to sleep and then awake, there is no audio. I have read a few other's postings and have found that this has happens on more than just mine. I've installed the very same Karmic custom DVD onto other computers, including laptops, and sounds works after wakeup on them just fine. So I suspect there is something with my Gateway that is causing it. In the end, I have to reboot simply to get the audio to return.
I want to make the audio available only on my headset and to turn the laptop speakers off. In windows, when i plug in the headphones, the speakers automatically turn off and audio is output only on the heads but that's not the case with slackware. I was looking in alsamixer and the audio and video configuration, but no success.
I just upgraded to 9.10 (Karmic Koala) on a Dell laptop. Now when I close the laptop lid to suspend and then open it to resume, the audio disappears; have to reboot to get the audio back. I remember having this problem a while ago back on Hardy Heron and finding a kludge to fix it - a line inserted in a shell script that gets invoked on resume
All audio and sounds work just fine until I close my laptop's lid for a spell and reopen. On resume, there is simply no sound at all. It's all fixed when I restart, but being a laptop, I like being able to close the lid and come back to it every now and then.
I believe it's an issue from when Ubuntu changed their audio in the transition between Jaunty and Karmic, and it never got fixed. FYI, it worked just fine in Jaunty.
From past postings and research, it seems to be a lack of something 'waking up' or restarting when the lid opens. However, it's not 'alsa restart' or 'pulseaudio restart' or whatever. It's one little bug that keeps me from having sound without a restart.
I have a Acer emachine E732z laptop. I have installed debian squeeze gnome, but it is unable to play audio through laptop speaker. The (3.5mm)audio jack is working fine and I can play audio through it. I have also installed Linux mint, but no audio(in speaker and audio jack). There is no such problem in Windows7.
All of my audio is working great now on Open Suse 11.2: MP3s, Skype,Flashplayer etc.all are working great. There is only one strange thing that is happening, when I plug in my headphones I get audio coming out of my laptop and my headphones! How can I get my audio to come out of my headphones only when I plug them in?
I have upgraded my laptop to 10.04 while having my usb-keyboard plugged in.f I boot the laptop without a plugged in keyboard, the laptop keyboard is not working. It starts working as soon as I plug a usb-keyboard in though.Quite annoying if I take my laptop with me and the first thing after booting is to find a usb-keyboard to plug in Does anyone know where can I reconfigure this? I just found out, that the laptop keyboar seems to be in numlock mode... meaning that the keys [j,k,l] is mapped to [1,2,3] etc
I have a problem with my sound card Microphone is working, headphones work but with kind of a low audio output, laptop speakers do not work at all. I have checked alsamixer and pulseaudio nothing is muted, tried all sort of different combinations and pulseaudio actually sees that mplayer for example is playing music, or skype is in videocall and using the sound device, but nothing is coming out of the speakers.

i recently installed lubuntu on my netbook, i love it but the only problem is i dont get audio, ive tried a few things, but nothing has worked. i have a bit of terminal experience, so i dont mind using that
Using Iceweasel on Gnome GUI the streaming audio does not work. Just kind of hangs when the Iceweasel player window opens. It used to work on this machine. I am all updated.Also, is there a way to play the streams that like to open their own players on the Movie Player? I have had best luck playing streams on the Movie Player in the past.
I am currently running Ubuntu 9.04 and am looking at upgrading to the upcoming 10.04 LTS release. And have been trying out the new version using the release candidate live CD. The main problem is one that was also evident when 9.04 was originally installed - audio recording and monitoring simply is not working. With 9.04 it took several hours of head-banging and reading HOW-TOs and guides to get to the point where audio input to the sound card played through the speakers and can be recorded by programs such as Audacity.
I've been trying to poke around with 10.04 to get the same results and so far had no success. (Things have changed sufficiently that it does not seem straightforward to simply replicate my 9.04 settings.) This is on 64-bit Ubuntu with a Soundblaster Audigy sound card. It's a little disappointing that we are not yet at the point where this type of basic functionality is working "out of the box" with Ubuntu. Anyone have any tips to setting up 10.04 for audio recording and monitoring?
Although I never did get this working with the live CD, recording worked fine after doing a test installation of Lucid on a spare hard drive. With the live CD the primary line input was not even showing up in alsamixer. With Lucid installed it was no problem to find and crank up the volume on this input. In actuality then, once the installation was actually done it took much less fiddling with this release than it did with 9.04 to get the same results.
I have a media center box running Ubuntu 9.10 x64 and XBMC. One day sound just stopped working on it. I did not install any updates around the time this happened. I have tried using a known working sound card. I verified the main volume is up and everything else in alsamixer looks OK. I have tried connecting known working headphones. Confirmed the kernel sees the hardware and loads to module for it. Confirmed several audio applications have no sound. I've confirmed it is set to use the correct sound card. I even booted into a live disk of the same version if Ubuntu and audio works fine there.
No errors are produced by any application, they act like they are playing audio just fine. The only entries in the logs about this I can find is below.
I am currently using Fedora 11 KDE as my primary operating system at work, but i am having a little bit of troubles getting an audio player to work properly. I am trying to play music off of a separate primary FAT32 file system (which is my shared drive amongst all my operating systems), but when i attempt to load the files via JuK, i receive this error: cannot find demultiplexer plugin for MRL.
I have been playing around with other players as well, and it seems like the only other player which will actually load up the media on this separate partition is Banshee, but doesn't seem to want to play it.
I'm trying to get skype going in Fedora 12 KDE x86_64 (fully updated). I did some testing with and without the pulseaudio server installed. With the pulseaudio, I didn't manage at all. I know I got it working before _without_ pulseaudio, but after a yum update the pulseaudio got reinstalled and the mic stopped working. Now I traced this problem down to what I think is wrong: I have a HDA Intel sound card, but 'cat /proc/asound/devices', doesn't show me any analog capture input at all:
Is there a Linux app for mounting and playing audio CDs from image files? I have saved disc images of nearly all of my CD collection, but I have yet to find any convenient way to play them.
Because of the nature of CD audio, every CD image has an accompanying .cue file, so there are actually 2 files (*.iso or *.bin and *.cue) from each disc. VLC Media Player will play DVD .iso images directly, but doesn't know what to do with audio CD images (or the .cue files).
Mounting and unmounting the images at the command line is tedious, given the very long file paths. I'd rather have a GUI-based app. Does any such thing exist for Linux?
FWIW, Acetone ISO doesn't work. It doesn't want to mount my *.iso format CD images. Probably some funkiness of the CD audio format. I think it is what the Acetone devs call a "multi-sector image." Likewise for the *.bin images of CDs.
