Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Does Not Produce Sound When Loggin In And Playing Music Files
Apr 4, 2010
I recently bought a new laptop. compaq presario CQ41 109AU. It does not come with a pre-installed OS so i've decided to put an Ubuntu on it[karmic koala 9.10]. I successfully completed the installation procedures. however, it does not produce sound when loggin in and playing music files. I gone to look if the settings where put to mute, but they were not. I tried installing a MS Vista in the other partition and the sound worked.
Installed Fedora 11 successfully, but I cannot get the MP3 files to produce sound.
Have tried the default configuration for sound, the Pulseaudio and the PulseAudioSoundServer.Installed and use KDE interface. Sound works for SKYPE (after selecting HDAIntel) and the Firefox 3.5 Beta 4.
I was listening to some Chopin today and I thought how cool it would be if there would be a way to put the sound output of Amarok (or anything else, maybe line-in or microphone) through some effects that would make it sound like being read from a vintage vinyl disk. Or when listening atmospheric folk songs about forests, it would be really cool to add some echo or reverberation, so it would sound like a large forest, ooor... But you get the idea. Is there any nice way of putting Amarok's sound through JACK, and from then on through a sound effector?
When I started to play songs, I have the normal sound. However, after some time, the songs are still being played but there is no sound anymore. It is not for music player so I don't think it is a player problem. In addition, after I delete and reinstall the audio card, the sound comes back. I have another problem about sound card disturbing me. When I watch ..... using firefox, there is no audio from the video. However, I do have the audio when the chrome is used. What could cause that? I kind of believe those two problems are related. The problem happens after I upgrade my 10.3 to 11.2 and now I am using 11.3. Does that come from the new configuration conflicts with the old one?
I recently bought a new notebook, an Asus N73JQ. This notebook has a special sound system called "Bang & Olufsen ICEpower". The first thing I did was to install Ubuntu 64-bit. After installing and rebooting I am certain that i heard the Ubuntu login sound but ten minutes later when i tried playing music with Spotify all sound was gone. The login sound now gone too. I have tried editing settings in System -> Preferences -> Sound, with no luck. The settings dialog lists two sound devices, "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" and "HDA NVidia Digital Stereo (HDMI)". Sound output device is set to the Internal Analog ** device. I have tried different profiles for this device but nothing seems to work. Does anyone here have the same notebook/sound system with a working sound configuration?
this problem is quiet enoying, so i hope that somebody can help me tracking down this problem and find a solution. When i open vlc or exaile and queue a list of tracks, after playing some hours, the sound hangs and in the music player repeats the same 1 second audio part like a hickup, in video programs like vlc also the film freezes.
i have the latest libraries of gstreamer from packman installed and i also tried updating the pulseaudio libraries from multimedia repo. but the problem is still the same
when i had windows and searched the music blogs there's links attached to the pages that let you download a song directly to your computer... with unbuntu, every time I click on these files it just opens up some visualizations in a new window while playing the song. anyone know how to change this?
Every time I log in Ubuntu 10.04, everything works fine, but there is this annoying problems with the sound volume and icon: It always appears as muted, and if I try to turn the volume up, or down, it wont make any difference, it stays muted.
Plus, if I try to shut it down, it always redirects me to the log in screen, always. The only way to turn down the laptop is, then, to unplug the wire.
I have worked the whole day to get an multimedia player that plays all format's. After trying vlc, realplayerGold, Xine, Kaffeine, Rhythmbox and Totem, I ended up at kaffeine.
I virtually installed al gstreamer-plugins,, like: Code: Dependencies Resolved Package Arch Version Repository Size Installing: gstreamer-plugins-bad i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion-free-updates 1.1 M gstreamer-plugins-bad-devel i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion-free-update 15 k gstreamer-plugins-bad-devel-docs i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion free-updates 163 k gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras i586 0.10.13-7.fc11 rpmfusion-free-updates 69 k .....

It seems I can play at least an mpeg movie, and mp3. But I find the quality of sound of the mp3 in kaffeine very poor. Yes, it plays, but some mp3's are struggling the first 10 seconds or so,, eg, Shivers - Armin van Buuren. When I play the same mp3 in xmms, it plays like a charm. That's not what I want, I want an all-round multimedia player. Xine does the job very well,, like xmms,, and plays also the mpeg, but unfortunately, xine shows an error message about a segmentation fault, upon exiting xine. Any hint to play mp3 files in kaffeine like xmms does?
I am new to this forum and have recently switched to Ubuntu. The OS installed without a hitch and was able to get video card, wireless internet installed with relative ease. However, I have encountered a problem installing my E-mu 0404 PCI sound card via the ALSA packages in Synaptic.
Code: 04:03.0 Multimedia audio controller : Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value [1102:0008] As you can see once the packages were installed the OS could see the hardware ok, but when I tried playing a standard MP3 file (16 bit, 44.1khz, 192kbps) in Totem it started playing the file back around 15-20% faster than normal? To me it sounds as if the software is playing the audio back at higher sample rate than 44.1khz hence the faster speed, though I'm not 100% on that.
The next thing I tried was playing the same file back in VLC and it was exactly the same (15-20% too fast), but this time it was horrible and glitchy as well, almost as if the audio buffer size was set to small. The same thing happened when I tried playing back some flac and wav files (all 16 bit, 44.1khz) also. I have searched google (and read the comprehensive sound card guide on this forum) and read several forums, guides, etc. for anybody posting the same issue with this particular card but could find nothing. From all reports I've read this card should work fine under ALSA. For the record I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 64bit kernel running on a Dell Dimension 9200 (Intel Core2Duo E6400 2.13ghz) with 2GB RAM.
Kernel 220.127.116.11, Slackware 12.0 Xfce 4.4 For example I've just issued 'mplayer foo.flac' and I do not want an error made by me while in the GUI to issue a loud sound notifying me the error and putting in risk my speakers.
I am using C++ and Gtk to make a music player. I was looking for some library that will allow me to play a music file, preferably mp3, wav, aac, and more if possible. Also, how can I get info on the file like the artist, album, genre, etc. Hopefully the library will do that also.
My PPC iMac G3, 600 MHz, 768 MB ram machine (blue box) machine has 16 MB video ram and 256 MB backside L2 cache. When I insert a music CD, it doesn't seem to recognize it. Nor does an icon appear on the screen indicating that I loaded a disk. When I insert a movie, Lucid waits a moment, spins the disk, then ejects it after about 60 sec. Data disks act similarly, but no ejection. Disk spins momentarily, no icon appears on desktop, disk does not eject, No further action.
I have hard drive with several thousand photos. These photos are in different formats, some are tif some jpg some raw (cr2). These files are in dozens of directories. What I want to do is produce a list of all the files, in all of the directories, sorted by the file name (not sorting on the path), listing the location, file name, size and date created. For instance I may have a file called photo1.jpg in /photos/pics/ I may also have a file called photo1.cr2 in /photos/misc/ and a file called photo1.tif in /photos/processed/summer/.
I would like a text file that would look like this: /photos/misc/photo1.cr2 2536658 2010-07-09 13:17 /photos/pics/photo1.jpg 320046 2010-07-07 14:47 /photos/processed/summer/photo1.tif 234456689 2010-07-10 09:22 Of course I want it to do this for all of the photos. I pretty sure that there is a way to do this with a minimum amount of work. I have no problem with using the command line.
I do monthly reports by copying the previous document, update the text and change the images. The images are the same size and numbers each months. Since last month I upgraded my laptop to Natty and suddenly my document went from 942 kB to 10.1 MB in .odt. When saving to PDF the usual size of 472 went up to 1.9 MB. I have searched the net and the forums but haven't seen anything about a similar issue.
I'm not sure if it's an issue that is from the previous document being produced in Open Office and now updated and saved in Libreoffice. Or if it's somehow something to do with the upgrade from Maverick to Natty. I would hope I don't have to uninstall Libreoffice and install Open Office as a solution (which I understand is not entirely easy in Natty, something I read about Open Office being transitional to Libre). I can't email simple documents to customers that's over 10 MB large...
i just had to switch from 10 to 11 until 12 comes out, and after setting up asterisk, i noticed VERY VERY BAD sound quality, mostly comprised of severe jittering. I noticed that the way Fedora lets you work with your sound devices in 11 is way different (nicer, but obviously not complete) than ever before, and i am using the same asterisk configs as before, so i'm positive that this is NOT an asterisk issue, and does NOT really belong in this forum; however, only asterisk users will be able to replicate or identify with this issue.
Have any of you 11 users had this happen to you, and if so, did you figure out how to solve it? I'm sure that i can *try* adjusting asterisks jitter buffer settings, but like i said, it was NEVER an issue before 11... Another clue would be that i cannot get crap like gtk-recordmydesktop to produce sound (but that may very well be another issue; however i doubt it)...
I really like gnome-do..i installed the rhythembox plugin and Super + Space and typed some songs titles...and pressed enter, i suppose at this point rhythembox (which is already in system tray ) should play the song....but what actually happen...is nothing..literally. so what ? or how should i play a song from gnome-do !!
I have an Ubuntu 10.04 desktop PC (desktop) that I access remotely, i.e. with no monitor and keyboard attached. I do this by making an ssh connection to "desktop" from my laptop (also running Ubuntu 10.04).
I have all my music stored on "desktop" and I want to play this remotely through the soundcard on "desktop" which is attached to a hi-fi amplifier, from my laptop.
I tried running, say, rhythmbox, on "desktop" through ssh X11 forwarding to my laptop but cannot play music - it says that the right codes are not installed although they are because I can use rhythmbox on "desktop" directly (attaching a monitor and keyboard to it).
I have windows and ubuntu on same pc. I recently installed ubuntu on a partition other than windows.When I tried to play an mp3 file in ubuntu, it started downloading file and plugins. After the download, the program started playing the music but I could not hear any sound. I have no problem in playing music in windows and the speakers are working fine. Do I need to download some plugins or any software for ubuntu linux? If yes, how and from where? And how to install that? Or is there any other problem?
I've been building my digital music collection for some time and used to house it on a local drive with no quality issues. A while back I built myself a file server using ubuntu and mdadm in a raid1 configuration to protect against potential drive failure. I link my iTunes library to the music files via a samba share and everything works great on the surface. I've started to notice that random songs are becoming corrupted with pops clicks and silent pauses. I'll even re-download an album and notice that it's corrupted a few weeks later. Now I'm at a loss to what is causing this issue; I ignored it at first but it seems to be getting worse and more widespread as time goes on.
Do you think this could be caused by mdadm? It reports that all is fine via 'cat /process/mdstat' but I wouldn't know where to look or what to look for if there were syncing issues. The other possibility is that I have iTunes set to keep my music folder organized for me, but I've never heard of it actually corrupting the files it shuffles around. The bottom line is that my library is getting crappier as time goes on and I cannot stand for that!
I've been having problems with it for months, assuming some bug fix would just happen, but it hasn't, so here I am.The general symptom is that I can sit listening to music for around 20-60 minutes, using audacious/banshee/whatever, and the music will make a crackling noise and suddenly stop. Killing pulseaudio and the application remedies the problem, but obviously that's not a solution.I have a ca0106 sound card. [edit: originally had emu10k1 here -- that's a sound card I have that's unused in the same system.]
/var/log/messages usually indicates a message like this, or something similar: Mar 6 00:22:29 localhost pulseaudio: alsa-util.c: snd_pcm_avail() returned a value that is exceptionally large: 18446744073709542688 bytes (384307168155 ms).
I have compiled Bluez 4.50 for arm and have installed it. The bluetoothd daemon is running fine. But when I enabled the blueoothd -nd & i get an error saying, Failed to access HAL. After a bit of digging, i tried installing hal on the board in vain. The hcitool scan runs fine and shows all the devices in the vicinity. I compiled agent.c from the test folder and am using it to pair in command line because i donot have python on the board. I see the packets getting txd and rxd in the hcidump when i try to pair with the headset. even the light in the headset changes after pairing. but i donot hear any sound when i play a *.wav file.
I'm having intermittent problems where the screen will freeze in Ubuntu. I've tried using Ctrl + Alt + Backspace to restart the X-server, though this does nothing. When the freeze occurs, there's a small square of black dashes around the mouse pointer - maybe 1 inch in size. These dashes look a lot like a 2d barcode. The rest of the screen looks normal, but I can't move the mouse and none of the keyboard shortcuts work to do anything. However, music that I begin playing before the freeze continues to play, which seems to indicate it hasn't stalled up completely.
I've noticed a similar freezing problem when I'm using Windows 7. That is, I see the same barcode like dashes around the mouse pointer when it freezes up. So I'm guessing it's either a driver or hardware problem. I thought if it was a hardware problem though, the whole computer might stop working (i.e. music would stop playing)? The video card I am using is an Nvidia, and I believe it's in the 7600 range. In Ubuntu I have the drivers for the card set to the latest available (proprietary). Ideally I'd like to be able to continue using the proprietary drivers. Is there any known issues with the drivers for this model graphics card
There is a piece of streaming music I want, when I open it, the song plays using totem browser plug in. Is there a way I can capture the song and keep it as a file (or put it on my mp3 player), preferably without downloading anything.
I recently found that I can sync my music to my iPod without iTunes/Windows. I tried using Rhythmbox and it seemed to work. That was, until I tried playing the album I added. It just skips through the album.
