Ubuntu :: 10.04 LTS - When I Adjust The Volume With The Volume Wheel ,Nothing Is Clickable?
May 1, 2010
It seems that when I adjust the volume with the volume wheel on the side of my notebook, the OS messes up. Nothing is clickable, I cannot type anything, in order to get a working computer again I have to hard reset it.Why is this happening? I have never experienced this. I have a Toshiba Satellite that I recently installed Ubuntu on.
I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A135 and it has a scroll volume wheel in the front. However, every time I use it, it makes the volume go up two notches, no matter how gently I move it. Is there a way to reduce how much the volume goes up or down when using the volume wheel?
I have recently acquired "3RVX" for my windows gaming rig and have fallen in love with the fast, customizable volume adjustment offered by holding the windows key (or "super") and rolling the mouse wheel.
Is there a plugin or a setting that I'm missing that would allow me to change volume using the scroll wheel instead of seeking? I usually use VLC for my videos but I would prefer to use Totem if possible.
Since I installed Lucid, anytime I watch a video in Firefox I can't adjust the volume. I click on the little volume icon, and the volume meter pops up, but it won't let me change it.Also, I can't change to a different point in the video.And finally, it won't go full screen when I click on the fullscreen button.
Something wrong happened with my sound applet. It regulates my sound volume on each mouse wheel scrolling, even if applet is not active. What's the reason for this? Recently I didn't make any changes in systems configuration. Tried to create an empty user folder and login there - problem still exists, so it is not a wrong configuration in users folder... what could it be?
Ever since upgrading to Karmic, I haven't been able to adjust master volume when my USB headphones are chosen as the output device. If I try to adjust my master volume (via the media keys on my keyboard or gnome-volume-control), the output volume doesn't change until it's entirely muted. I can adjust the master volume fine when I'm outputting through internal audio.I am able to adjust the volume fine on an application-specific basis, but this becomes quite a nuisance, especially when I switch between internal audio (where master volume is regulated) and USB audio (where master volume is always at full-blast). This worked fine in Jaunty, and stopped working once I updated to Karmic. My USB headphones are listed as "Storm HP-USB500 5.1 Headset".
since installing nVidia graphic drivers I can't adjust volume using volume button nor using volume keys. The volume icon has 3 horizontal lines like Ubuntu couldn't find audio device. Morover when I try to run pulseaudio there is "/home/chris is not ours" message.
Despite these facts audio is playing and I can adjust volume using alsamixer, but it is extremely not comfortable to enter console each time I want to volume up/down..
In xfce ,My keyboard for adjust volume don't work.I found in xfce--config--keyboard, there are settings to set globe hotkey.I try to add XF86AudioLowerVolume ,XF86AudioRaiseVolume and XF86AudioMute in this area,,but don't know which command should be.
I've just switched to slackware from opensuse (and before ubuntu) for few days. Everything is ok , no, is awesome when I was doing my job on run level 3. However, I found there was no sound when I booted it to run level 4 (xfce) trying to play some music on yesterday. After googled a lot, I thought there must be some wrong with my alsa driver, because I couldn't adjust the PCM volume from either alsamixer or amixer. In fact, there is even no PCM section in it, but two sections named "IEC958" and "IEC958 D" instead with no "pvolume" capability. Here is some outputs:
I've had this problem since I fresh installed Fedora on my laptop: I can play sounds fine, but I can't mute/make it louder or softer. I couple days ago (right after I installed) there was a notification saying there was an error with something in the sound and it was "falling back to default". Recently, the notification stopped popping up but the problem persists.
I'm not 100% positive as to what type of speakers my laptop has. I know they're made by JBL, but on Windows they're handled by "RealTek HD Audio Manager" and in Device Manager there's 2 different audio devices: Realtek High Definition Audio and ATI HDMI Audio. Neither of them say they're JBL brand. The most information I can get out of the specs of my laptop found on Newegg is that they're "JBL stereo speakers (1.5 watt x 2)".
i'm using opensuse 11.3 64bits and upgraded kde from 4.4.4 to 4.6.0 now i'm having some problems with audio. it seems kde have problems with audio-devices. sometime i message about none workin devices and ask me to remove it. i manage to get sound from amarok, but not from web-browser lika videos. the computer is a dell latitude d830 with intel hda-devices. computer is docked in a dell d-dock. i can't adjust master volume using computer buttons or kde-volume, so i have to use volume on external speakers.
I am playing with SalixOS which is supposed to be entirely compatible with Slack. I've never put Slack proper on this laptop. It's run Ubuntu and Mandriva both and the volume wheel always works. It does not seem to be recognized in Salix. I figure the fix will be the same in Salix as Slackware so I'm asking here. The laptop is an A205 Toshiba Satellite.
Is there a way to default volume to 100% in the terminal with gnome-volume-control-applet or any other program? I am setting up a dedicated Zsnes machine which boots into Fluxbox but the volume is muted by default. There isn't a man page for gnome-volume-control-applet.
When I log into Gnome the volume is set to 100%, but Fluxbox is always set to mute.
I've got my xubuntu 10.10 install just about perfect on a little acer aspire d250, apart from a small sound useability issue: In the interests of simplicity and resource usage I removed pulseaudio. After a bit of fiddling I got it so that my USB soundcard (ProDac) is recognized and automatically set as the default soundcard when plugged in. Any sound applications automatically use the USB sound if it present, no need to around with pulse. The only problem is that my netbook's volume control keys still only control the master volume of the inbuilt soundcard, and have no effect on the usb sound. Does anyone know of a way to change which sound device these keys actually effect? I'd like to write a little script so that when the usb device is detected the keys are remapped.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit on an old DFI KT600AL motherboard based system using the onboard VIA 3058 AC97 audio (because it supports front panel audio connections and none of the add-in PCI soundcards I have do). I have an old Gateway/STB TVPCI TV tuner card (mainly wanted the FM radio part to work) hooked up to the cd audio connector on the motherboard because the digital audio over the pci bus apparently isn't supported for this card (neither is the onboard analog mixer on the tv tuner card, I had to hack a CD-ROM audio cable and solder it to the audio outputs of the tv tuner module on the TV tuner card). When I use the master channel as the master channel (selected in Kmix) then as one would expect it affects the output volume of all other audio playing on the system except that which is being handled by the PCM channel. On Windows the PCM channel was also affected by the "Volume Control" slider such that ALL volume levels were reduced when moving the slider. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how to make it work like this on Kubuntu.
First off I should warn you that I (like many users of older hardware that is not properly supported under PulseAudio) have uninstalled PulseAudio (because it's garbage) and am using Alsa to manage my audio hardware. I would think that there would be some way to do this using the 'amixer' application to add the PCM channel as a component of the 'Master' channel so that when the volume is turned down using the 'Master' channel control it will affect the PCM channel too (at least the output to the speaker jack, not necessarily the capture or mix volume though), but I'm not really any good at doing things from a terminal window and the options for the amixer command kind of confused me.
I used Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) on IMac i7. As far as, I remember, after installing Pulse-Audio Equalizer, for each restart of the system, after login screen, system sets volume to maximum value. What can I do?
since using 10.04 I have a big problem with my usb headset (freetalk everyman)
1. Problem: I cannot regulate the volume of the phones (output) anymore with gnome-volume-control. By default the volume is set to 100% which is way too loud. When I set it under 100% there is no sound at all. Values over 100% work.
2. Problem: The X server is freezing iregulary when I connect the headset and disconnect it, Magic SysRq works. I checked Xorg.0.log and found out that it recognizes the usb headset as keyboard:
I'm using 10.04 now and it runs ok, except one strange thing in the Volume control applet. Sometimes, when I click on the volume slider, it moves up. Even if I try to slide it down, it moves up on every click. The same when I click left of it - it keeps moving up! This is very annoying at night when the music gets loud and wakes everybody. It happens with or without Compiz turned on
I am struggling with a problem with the volume control... when i try to adjust the volume with the sliding bar i can not do it. If i put the scrollbar to the 0 position, it is muted. when i move it to anywhere else, i get the full volume. From other programs like vlc, i can adjust the volume with no problem.
My volume control seems to have only three settings: TOO LOUD, VERY QUIET, OFF. If I adjust the Master volume slider from the Panel, only about the right 1/8th has any effect and if I slide it past about the 95% mark, I get no sound at all. At the far-right end of the volume control, I get total volume. It's basically like the slider only has any impact in the top 5% of it's space. Below 95% of the slide, there is zero volume.
It's so drastic, that one tap down of the volume button on my keyboard kills the sound (because it nudges the slider past that 95% mark). This happens in the Audio settings, etc., system-wide. If I adjust the volume for an individual app from within the app (MPlayer, for example) it behaves exactly as expected (that is, app volume works smoothly, it's just master volume that has this issue). I have run through most of the "obvious" things-- I'm wondering if I broke something by installing the extra KDE packages to get Amarok to work.
I'm running squeeze (last updated today), and everything has been working great. There is only thing that would simplify my life minutely..Anybody know how can I have the volume buttons on my laptop change the "pcm" channel volume rather than "master"? If they could control pcm, then I could adjust the volume coming out of my headphones or my computer speaker (both controlled by pcm, but not master...seems strange to me) with just one click.I tried to find this info online, but all results seem to refer to an older version. The simple "click here, set this" solution no longer is possible.
Debian Squeeze 6.0.0 on a Thinkpad T43, sound volume is not synchronized between the laptop volume buttons and GNOME's Volume Applet. So if I turn the volume all the way down with the physical buttons, the volume applet may still indicate 75%.I did not have this problem in Debian Lenny. Pressing the volume buttons used to show a volume bar on the screen, as did pressing the mute button.
I don't know much about lvm and I've managed to screw up a drive. I had a 500GB drive with FC14 on it and I wanted to copy over a load of data to my new 1TB that was replacing it. I set up my new install the same way as the old...including the same volume names (error number 1 I think) I successfully mounted the old/500GB drive (using vgscan and vgchange -a y etc.) using a laptop (running FC13) and an external hdd cradle. I could access the files I wanted but this wasn't the machine I wanted to copy them to (I was doing this while waiting for the install to finish on the new drive).
When I tried the same process on the new install I found that having two lvm with the same name meant I couldn't mount the external one. So I opened the disk utility (palimsest) and was going to change the name of the old volume group but it wouldn't let me do that. I then thought maybe I could get away with just changing the name of the partition where the files were and maybe I could add it to the mounted group or something so I changed it to lv_home2. This changed the name of my new/1TB lv_home to lv_home2 as well. So thinking that wasn't the answer I just changed the name of the new lv_home2 back to lv_home.
From that point on I haven't been able to see the old drives partitions (the new volume group still works so far). I has a physical volume but the volume group and volume names are gone from view. When I try to vgscan on my main computer or the laptop I had it working on earlier I get:
I'm rearranging a bunch of disks on my server at home and I find myself in the position of wanting to move a bunch of LVM logical volumes to another volume group. Is there a simple way to do this? I saw mention of a cplv command but this seems to be either old or not something that was ever available for linux.
