I have a few problems with my sound. First off, I don't know exactly what chip it is, but my laptop is an Acer Aspire 6530 running a fully updated Fedora 13. Sound itself works, but that's about as far as it goes.So, here are my problems:Built-in laptop speakers don't auto-mute/turn off whenever something it plugged into the headphones jack.Microphone doesn't seem to work, both the one next to my webcam as well as any mic attached to the mic jack. The webcam itself works fine.I would be really happy if I could get these issues fixed. I was so impressed that I made Fedora my only OS on my laptop, but fixing a few more things would be even better.
I just installed fedora 12 on my new lenovo laptop sl510 where I have pulseaudio over my alsa. The problem is, when I plugin headphones in 3.5 jack the speakers dont mute which is really irritating. I tried switching from "analog output" to "analog headphones", but what that does it mutes both.
I'm on an IBM Thinkpad X60. When I plug either headphones or external speakers into the headphone jack (whether on the docking station or the laptop itself), the laptop speakers aren't muted. I can hear sound coming from both simultaneously. I've tried editing the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf in all kinds of ways, my most recent attempt being to add the line:
Code: options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad but still with no success.
I'm using 10.04 with the 2.6.32 kernel. I tried installing the .34 kernel with no better results, so I switched back.
I found a curious issue with my new Dell XPS 8100. On my old Inspiron, as soon as I plugged in the headphones they muted the speakers. That's how it should be, because you listen to headphones so you don't blast your music all over the room. But now, on the 8100, the speakers still blast even if the headphones are plugged in. Headphones Also work, so they're getting a clear signal. It's just simultaneously being played in the rear speakers too.
Since I bought my computer and I installed Linux on it, I had this problem... Back in the day I never Found a REAL Solution and finally my "solution" (in Fedora) was installing "pavucontrol" to choose the Devices when I needed to Switch.
Via the Pulse Audio Volume Control I was able to Mute speakers or Headphones at my will, even if I had both connected, this thing worked from F12 to F14 very well...
(The same problem is present in every distro I tried and sometimes it was solved the same way in other distros)
But Now, I'm in F15 And my magic workout doesn't work anymore... it doesn't matter wich device I choose as output, the PC simply don't mute one or another and my headphones and speakers sound at the same time.
The Sound card is a HDA INTEL with the Realtek ALC662 rev1 Chip, as I said before, I'm using Fedora 15 KDE (64 Bit version) and I'm running ALSA v 1.0.23 with pulseaudio 0.9.22-5
My Toshiba Satellite Pro A200 running Fedora 8 continues to play sound out of the laptop speakers when external speakers are plugged in (and no sound out of the external). What can I do to diagnose/fix this? code...
I have a Toshiba Satellite L650 with a Conexant 5069 sound card, and when I plug in my headphones the built-in speakers don't mute. I already tried adding options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (I also tried auto, toshiba, thinkpad and ideapad). This is the alsactl init output: Unknown hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Conexant ID 5069" "HDA:14f15069,1179fd12,00100302" "0x1179" "0xff1e" Hardware is initialized using a guess method.
I just installed Debian Squeeze on my Acer Aspire 7736ZG and I also got some problems with the Realtek ALC888 onboard-sound. Normally, the speakers should mute themselves when headphones are plugged in, but they don't. Instead I hear sound on both, speakers and headphones.
I already installed pulseaudio, but that didn't help. On Ubuntu Maverick (11.01?) I had the problems that the sound didn't play at all until I installed an alsa-driver which was modified by one of the ubuntu developers. Is there any fix like this for Debian Squeeze, too?
I don't want to monitor my inputs. In other words: My microphone input plays through my speakers, adding a lot of undesirable noise from the mic. I can mute the mic inputs in alsamixer and/or in the Pulse volume control. This works to get the mic out of the speakers--but it also mutes my mic entirely, so I cannot record audio or use Google Talk. I want the microphone muted in my output, but available to my apps.
(I try to get on the Pulse bandwagon but it is so hard--I thought this was exactly what it was supposed to do, give easy mixing control over inputs and outputs. But I have to search for "fixes" with every single Ubuntu release for two years now, ever since it was first included. Ok, venting over, time to get it working!)
I've been bashing my head against this problem for weeks now. The problem is that my external speakers are not being muted when I plug in headphones. I get sound through both the speakers and the headphones at the same time. This is happening on every Linux distro I've tried so far on this box, but in Windows everything behaves as expected. I've tried every option I have in both alsamixer and the Gnome sound preferences, to no avail.
Curiously, if I mute any one of the audio channels or toggle the headphone switch in alsamixer, all sound output is muted, to both the speakers and headphones. The audio chipset is a Realtek ALC888, on a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 motherboard (6 jacks, optical and coaxial S/PDIF out). I must've tried a dozen different models in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, and none of them seem to make any difference at all.
I'm using Linux Mint 8, kernel 2.6.31-12 (and I tried several other distributions and had the exact same problem) on my FSC Amilo Pro 3525, where I have Intel HDA (ICH7) and Realtek 883. My problem is that when I plug in my external speakers, they do not mute the internal ones.
I've searched and searched the forums and came up with a half-baked solution where in alsamixer I - almost - mute front, and bring master to maximum, and in that way I hear the internal speakers just a little.. and the external ones play at maybe 1/3 of their normal volume. Every time I reboot I have to do this again. I can't mute front entirely because then it mutes all sound.
I tried adding various options to alsa-conf, which seems to be a fairly often suggested solution, including the one where I identify the model of my notebook, and it did not help.
Now. When I tried to find the answer, I came across several tutorials that suggested adjusting options in volume control, etc, inlcuding jacksense, that I found I don't have listed.
Being pretty ignorant about Linux, I came to the conclusion that it might be Pulseaudio that's causing the problem. For instance, alsamixergui shows Pulseaudio as card. I did try preventing Pulseaudio from loading, did not help.
I'm having some trouble configuring my the sound on my laptop. I'm using Alsa. Playing sound is no problem, but when I plug my Koss headphones into the audio jack the laptop speakers continue playing and sound also comes out of my headphones. When I go to alsamixer from cli the sound card only shows 1 master channel so I can't mute the internal laptop speakers.
I am running Fedora 10 on my laptop. Recently I installed Empathy to use voice chat on Linux, however, Empathy does not detect the laptops built in microphone! I have checked the audio settings and found that the mic is enabled. I know that the mic is working as it works fine when I am booted onto my Windows partition.
I recently installed Kubuntu 9.04 Jaunty on my buddy's laptop. It's working alright, except when we try to plug the external computer speakers into the sound jack in the front, there is no change; it keeps playing through the onboard speakers. My friend and I are getting pretty frustrated because we use those speakers to watch movies with, and the onboard speakers aren't sufficient. If I need to provide any other info, let me know and I'll do so.
i've not been able to find a solution to my issue. I have a Gateway Profile 5 All-in-One with built in speakers. Just finished a fresh install to 9.10 and all updates. I can hear sound through the headphone jack via headphones, but the internal speakers will not play anything. I've checked the volume controls, alsamixer, etc.
New eeePC 1015PEM netbook, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD. Came with Win 7 Starter; I retained this and installed openSUSE 11.3 alongside. Everything works well in Win 7 Most things also work well in oS 11.3, but there is a knotty problem with audio from the built-in speakers. Headphones are OK, but the speakers don't work reliably. Others have reported this on similar machines, and a number of "fixes" have been proposed in a wide range of forums, but so far I haven't found any that work.
I've actually installed oS 11.3 twice. After the first install I had no speaker sound at all, but after a day or two fiddling around it started to work of its own accord for no reason I could point to. For unrelated reasons (a silly mistake by me in Win 7) I then had to re-install oS 11.3 from scratch. This time the speaker sound worked after install, but then it dropped out again a couple of days later. Headphone audio has remained OK throughout.
I'm aware of and have applied the acpi_osi=Linux kernel parameter to enable the Fn keys on the machine (including sound volume and mute/unmute), so it's not that. I've combed the forums and Google extensively for other suggestions, and have tried them - including installing alsamixergui. I've also installed a properly matched ALSA KMP which changed some of the alsamixer controls but didn't cure the problem. Since it all works very well in Win7 and works sometimes in oS 11.3, I conclude that the problem is not with hardware but is something in software.
when i select mute on the volume control in the ubuntu control panel the sound gets muffled but does not mute. also if i plug in headphones the headphones are fine but the speaker sound just goes muffled not off completely as expected. this happens in iplayer and videos. rythmbox works fine. running ubuntu 10.10 64bit on samsung r720 and lspci | grep udio returns

I just installed Fedora 12 on my Toshiba laptop and ran into the same problem I had with Fedora 11, only this time it remains unresolvable: an unstoppable hiss coming from the built-in speakers.I tried the Pulseaudio fixed and workarounds, but alas, no joy. Not to be a complainer (because I *am* humbly asking for help, here) but at this stage of development I would think something like sound would be firmly and irrevocably resolved, and not require workarounds.
