OpenSUSE Hardware :: None Of Notification Sounds Work / Skype, Firefox, And Wine Still Give Sounds?

Feb 24, 2010

I've been using opensuse for about a week.(although I'm not completely a linux noob) I've been slowly moving more of the stuff I do on windows over to suse. I thought my sound was working fine until I decided to get mp3s running on amarok. I followed a bunch of guides which didn't work. While I was messing around with stuff I noticed a startup noise. I just assumed it didn't have a startup noise. At some point I broke all of my sound except running wine, so I reinstalled.

Now that I've noticed, none of my notification sounds work. Stuff like skype, firefox, and wine still give me sounds.

(If anyone could point me in the direction of a good place to get mp3s working on amarok would be nice as well.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get The Sound To Work - No Web Sounds - No CD Sounds

Sep 1, 2011

I have a HP laptop model HP G72 Notebook PC, Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @2.27GHz & the Sound devices are Intel(R) Display Audio & Realtek High Definition Audio.

This machine came loaded with Windows7 & I have successfully dual booted it with Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.3.

The problem I am having is that I cannot get the sound to work at all in Ubuntu. No opening sounds or anything else that I have tried. No Web sounds, no CD sounds... All sounds work fine on the Windows side, but nothing I have tried so far seem to work with Ubuntu & I have tried many options from many threads.

OpenSUSE :: Winecfg Doesn't Play Any Sounds Under Wine

Jan 13, 2010

openSUSE 11.2 32 & 64bit
default repos + packman, nvidia
wine v 1.1.28 (default)

I was completely shocked to find that the new Wolfenstein demo works perfectly under this version of wine, but sadly I get no sound. winecfg doesn't play any sounds, just a faint humming sound when testing, and I get the same thing when playing the demo. I've had the problem of sound sharing on this system with each install I do, and I've installed/re-installed many many times so far.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Get Sound-test To Play Sounds As Well As Connect To The Sound Device In Vmware And Play Sounds?

Nov 5, 2009

I'm trying to figure out what in the world is going on with my sound in OpenSuSE. I put in a brand new Audigy chipset soundcard and finally got some sound to come out of the speakers. I used the guide here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE. to fix the permissions on my sound and am able to get sound-test to play sounds as well as connect to the sound device in my vmware and play sounds. That being said, I have terrible sound quality coming out. There is a lot of static sound like white noise and the volume of the actual sound played is very low compared to the noise. The sounds also distort somewhat.

I have tried the pulse audio change in the tutorial above also and have been searching around google. The only problem that I saw similar was a person who fixed the problem by updating KDE. I don't have KDE, I'm using Afterstep.

Ubuntu :: Empathy Notification Sounds Not Working On One Desktop?

Apr 28, 2011

I have four different desktops, or workspaces, on here. I use one for a web browser, another for instant messaging, the third for Evolution, and the fourth for whatever, usually working in folders or word documents or whatnot. Whenever someone sends me a message on Empathy and I'm not focused on the chat window it dings. This is true for desktops 2-4, but when I'm on workspace 1 whether my web browser is minimized or not I don't get the notification sound, the persons message just appears as a notification panel.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound When Get System Sounds (notifications) To Work

Mar 22, 2010

My sound was working fine except I couldn't get system sounds (notifications) to work. So I decided to install pulseaudio to see if it would fix it. Now I get system sounds and my other sounds, but now in most things (such as firefox and warcraft 3) the sound is choppy. I've tried SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE and a couple other things I've googled but it's not working for me. I'd like to be able to fix it or at least go back to the way it was.

Slackware :: Using XFCE Got The Event Sounds To Work?

Jan 24, 2011

I know that this not a Slackware question, but since Slackware 13.1 has XFCE 4.6.2 in its standard installation I just ask here. I have a problem with the event sounds in XFCE 4.6.2 on Debian Sid. I already have a thread about this problem here, and couldn't solve it till now. I need to know if this issue is related to Debian or to XFCE, before I ask at the XFCE mailing list. So just one simple question: Has any one of you that is using XFCE got the event sounds to work?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sounds Mutes / Unmutes Continuously On ASRock M3A770DE

Aug 22, 2010

My sound keeps going on and off, with some variation but generally about twice a second. I can watch the speaker icon in the system tray with a red x appearing and going away. When I play anything the sound is very broken. I'm running on an ASRock M3A770DE uploaded my ALSA information: [URL]. I've tried a number of things to attempt to correct the problem, but nothing I've tried makes any difference.

This MB does have two separate sound devices, I think. This shows up in YAST/Hardware/Sound with one entry as "ATI Technologies Inc." and the other as "SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)". I've tried disabling each one separately, but that doesn't seem to make any difference. The description of the board says it has "7.1 CH Windows Vista, Premium Level HD Audio (VIA VT1708S Audio Codec)". I don't run Windows except in VMs, so I don't know what happens with this in Windows.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound On HDMI Output - No Beeps - No System Sounds ?

Jun 25, 2011

I am attempting to set up a machine to use as a movie/video viewer. When I connect this machine using an HDMI cable to an HDMI TV, I get video, but no audio. No beeps, no system sounds, no noise of any kind.

I've run the following mixers and set all volume controls to maximum:Gmixer, Kmix, AlsaMixer and pavucontrol.

When playing a video, pavucontrol meter shows signal from the application and shows output signal to the HDMI device, but where that output is going to is beyond me.

Using the Sound setup of Yast, I attempt to play a test sound on the HDMI, nothing.

Built in Audio adapter works fine. I have disabled it in pavucontrol in attempts to get the sound directed to the HDMI output, but, silence is all I get. I've also tried enabling and disabling simultaneous output with no difference in results.

I've tried a few suggestions from other posts with the same issue (creating /etc/asoundrc.conf, modifying /etc/pulse/, but no joy.

If I boot up that other operating system (starts with a W), all sounds (system & video) show up on the HDMI input with no adjustments needed.

Why must this be so difficult?

The technical details:
Suse 11.4
EVGA GeForce 8400GS Video card (HDMI)

All commands below were issued while HDMI cable connected, and video playing (using VLC).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Driver - Vocal / Commentary Track Sounds Like Listening To It From Underwater

Apr 21, 2010

I've been having these weird problem with sound after the last few updates. The background music of a ..... video or audio CD playback would be fine, but any vocal/commentary track that contains human voice would be all jumbed up and sounds like you are listening to it from underwater. The volume for the human voice part of the audio would also be a lot lower than the music track.

Not sure what the problem is, and the only way of solving it was through system restore (which actually takes more time than a reinstall). The test sound in YAST sounds fine (well, it's a music track afterall), and most instrumental music on ..... seems to play correctly.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: FFmpeg And ALSA Records The System Sounds Just Fine, It Doesn't Record The Microphone?

Oct 28, 2010

I'm trying to record a video with sound through FFmpeg, and while it records the system sounds just fine, it doesn't record the microphone (in fact, it crashes on doing so!). The strange thing is that if I use arecord, it works just perfectly, but through ffmpeg it crashes.This is the command that I use to launch FFmpeg:

Software :: Does Skype Work Well In WINE

Jul 7, 2011

I was just looking through and noticed that there's no Skype download, although there is a Static one and also for Debian as well as Ubuntu (amongst some other distros).Does Skype work well in WINE or am I just better off waiting for a Linux distro?

One slight reason for my concern is because I've heard that Microsoft bought Skype, and if that occurs we might not get as much support as we need and may have to resort to using WINE for Skype.

Fedora :: Get No System Sounds ?

Aug 2, 2010

At the moment i'm dual booting Mint9/Fedora 13 (both gnome). Although sound works fine in both, i've noticed i get no system sounds in Fedora, other than at log in. I've done all the usual checks in sound & pulse audio, everything is unmuted etc etc, seems to be set up fine. There's even more sound options than Mint in usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo.

Fedora :: Cannot Play Sounds In F14 With KDE 4.5.5

Feb 6, 2011

For some reason I cannot play sounds anymore. It worked fine, but it just stopped working and I have no idea why. Might have been an update, but I'm not sure. I really have no idea what to do, restarting certainly didn't do anything. I use Fedora 14 with KDE 4.5.5. In the system settings I can chose "Internal Audio" as Hardware with a couple of different Profiles, of which none work.

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn Off Sounds

Jan 18, 2011

I just installed ubuntu studio and it looks better than ever. I have an ice1712 soundcard and I have NEVER had it work on ANY linux distribution that used pulseaudio (I'm guessing that this problem has been around for at least two years) so I proceeded with my usual way of fixing things which is to just get rid of pulseaudio. Well it worked like a charm, uninstall pulseaudio, reboot and there's my sound. Here is my problem, I went to >system >preferences >sound to turn of the system sounds. I get a message, "waiting for sound system to respond" Does anyone know how I can make these sounds go away. I'm happy to try anything.

Debian Installation :: Sounds Like A Job For Rsync ?

Jan 19, 2010

I have two 32-bit boxes here at work on a windows network. Box A I set up a couple months ago with Squeeze. Box B has a fresh install of Squeeze and I want to transfer all my /home and info/setting from Box A to Box B. I have Box B set up with /home on it's own partition. Is this as easy as using rsync over the network? Or would scp be better?
