Ubuntu :: Alsa Mixer Auto Mutes Speakers On Startup.

Feb 9, 2011

I've got an Acer 7736 and had quite a few issues with no sound after my install of 10.10. After quite a bit of fiddling I managed to get that sorted and I now how have sound. I believe I'm using alsa although pulse also does seem to be on here. The reason I say I believe I'm using alsa is that after startup, I have no sound on speakers unless I unmute it in alsamixer.

As I understand it alsa's supposed to save your settings on logout/shutdown/reboot but this doesn't appear to be the case, and I'm not able to find any asound.conf or the like in the places they're apparently supposed to be.

Software :: GUI Mixer (ALSA) - Muting The Speakers While Leaving The Signal To The Headphone

Mar 14, 2011

I recently upgraded from FC11 to FC14 by backing up /home, saving the output of "rpm -qa", repartitioning, installing FC14, restoring /home, re-running "rpm -qa" and installing packages that I had before.

But I noticed that the nice GUI mixer that I had before which could allow me separately muting the speakers (conneced to "front" jack) while leaving the signal to the headphone
jack is missing. I think it was an ALSA mixer but I'm not 100% sure. I downloaded alsa-driver-1.0.24.tar.bz2 but after

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALSA Mixer Resets Volume Levels At Startup

Dec 13, 2010

ALSA mixer resets my speaker volume to zero and changes my USB headset volume to a very low level. How can I get ALSA Mixer to remember my volume settings from last boot or if there's no other option, a way I can make it adjust the levels to a predetermined level automatically on startup. I'm using 10.10 with pulseaudio.

Ubuntu :: Pulseaudio Mutes Speakers - Headphones

Sep 30, 2010

I am using Maverick I had this problem on Lucid as well. With an old version of alsa my headphones mute my laptops speakers when I plug them in. This seems to be the correct behavior.

With a newer alsa, plugging in headphones enables sound in both laptop speakers and headphones. Sometimes plugging in the headphones mutes everything, when I unmute it has the same behavior of playing sound out of both outputs. Changing to Analog Headphones enables playback with only the speaker but is always muted by default, requiring me to go into alsamixer. Removing pulse gets the correct behavior with just alsa, so pulse seems to be the culprit.

Here is my result of the alsa info script. I tried an option suggested in an alsa wikipage to do "snd-hda-intel: enable_msi=1". It did not help.

Debian :: Can't Use ALSA In Xfce Mixer / Resolve It?

Nov 11, 2010

I just did a reinstall of Debian testing last night, and today I am configuring the system to my liking. I just clicked on the mixer in the tray, and the only option I get is Realtek ALC269. Before I could use ALSA. What happened, and how can I get ALSA back?

I did an "apt-get install alsa" to see if I could even get ALSA, and it downloaded and installed. I still can't seem to get ALSA working down there.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: USB Headset Volume Settings In ALSA Mixer?

May 20, 2010

I have a Logitech clearchat pro usb headset and it works really well. However every time I plug it in I have to turn up its volume in alsa mixer. Also so that the right volume slider is controlled (by the volume keys) I have to change the output in pavucontrol. Does anyone know of a way that I can make this happen on its own? I guessed writing a udev rule might work (not that I have ever done one), but I don't know the commands that are equivalent to what I do.

Ubuntu :: Gnome ALSA Mixer - Sound Doesn't Work

Mar 20, 2011

I am experiencing problems with the Gnome ALSA Mixer. I installed Ubuntu on my MacBook Pro inside Windows (I am running Windows via bootcamp), and when I am running Ubuntu the sound doesn't work. After researching the problem online, I was told that one needed to download an application called the "Gnome ALSA Mixer", and switch the mute to off (apparently the mute is default). I downloaded the application, but whenever I try to run it the application window is blank. There are no controls of any sort. I was told when installing Ubuntu inside windows that the disk efficiency (I think thats what is was) is very much reduced, but I don't know if this has anything to do with that.

Also, is there a way to prevent the trackpad from registering stimulus while typing? I find it very obnoxious that every time I try to type in my password or the like that the curser clicks off of where I'm typing, so I am constantly having to move the pointer back and re-click in the area I'm trying to type in (if that makes sense).

Software :: MPD Alsa Mixer: Input/output Error

May 16, 2011

I'm having an issue using MPD currently, using sonata as the front end. Quick specs are as follows:

Code: Fedora 13 x64 - Linux ltp01 #1 SMP Thu Feb 17 15:03:58 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux MPD version - mpd (MPD: Music Player Daemon) 0.15.11 Here is my mpd.conf file contents: Code: # An example configuration file for MPD # See the mpd.conf man page for a more detailed description of each parameter.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALSA Mixer Returns To Default Settings On Restart

Dec 24, 2010

I notice that each time I boot my computer, under the playback section of the ALSA Mixer the 'Speaker' volume control is turned all the way down. Even when I return it to the proper level, and then restart my computer later, the slider for 'Speaker' seems to default back to the previous state mentioned above. Is there a way to set the default for the ALSA mixer in a .conf file of some sort so that the default setting for 'Speaker' is always at max?

Debian Hardware :: Alsa Mixer Selected But No Sound With Squeeze

May 18, 2010

I just bought an HP Pavilion dv7-1273cl and it works excellent except for the sound and the webcam, the result for lspci is as follows:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset PCI Express Graphics Port (rev 07)
00:1a.0 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 (rev 03)
00:1a.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #5 (rev 03)
00:1a.7 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller #2 (rev 03)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

Gnome volume control shows that HDA Intel(Alsa mixer) is selected and as a default the speaker is muted, if I unmute it, an infinite loop-like sound plays and no application seems to have access to the sound, I believe the correct module is installed by default, and the webcam does not work as well. I'm using debian squeeze i386.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speakers Not Working With ALSA?

Feb 5, 2010

I have an HP-dc5800 computer, and my internal speaker was not working, no matter what i did. However, i could get sound with headphones. Here is what i did to fix it. It may work for you.

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Add options snd-hda-intel model=hp-m4 enable_msi=1 to the end of the file. I changed model=hp-m4 to model=hp-dc5800. So, changing the model to the model of your computer may work. Underneath that, i put in; options snd-hda-intel enable=1 enable_msi=1 single_cmd=1 power_save_controller=1 here is a list of some of the models. http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...dio-Models.txt

Ubuntu :: Set The Mixer Volume Level At System Startup Or Login?

Jun 9, 2011

How-To set the mixer volume level at system startup or login. A funny story that led up to this how-to first...

I made the obvious mistake of leaving my volume level set to nearly maximum. Of course, Ubuntu's default behavior is to restore the mixer to its last known state - a point of much irritation at that moment. This had been a problem in the past as well, and today was the last straw. So, I did some research, for quite some time I might add, and decided to be a good community member and share my findings. It seems that there are all sorts of opinions around the web. The dominant opinion is that a mixer should always be restored to its last known state, that this is all well and good, and why would you ever want it to work any other way. Lots of people suggested that the startup sound be disabled, which was not a terrible solution, but was still a work-around as it means that the next sound bite to be played is the alarming one.

Needless to say, I wanted to find out what I would call the "proper" way to set the mixer level at startup. As my laptop uses PulseAudio, and my office desktop uses ALSA audio, the methods were different. My focus was for PulseAudio as that was the original purpose. I note here that my method for ALSA is less detailed as it is not the default for Ubuntu audio these days. So, if you are using ALSA, you might have to be a little creative to make my ALSA note fit your needs. I have attached 2 files to this post, one for ALSA and one for PulseAudio.

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze And Alsa Not Working With Rear Jack Speakers?

May 24, 2010

I'm at the tail end of my upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and I think this sound issue is the last one I have.
As usual I've tried hunting for some answers but it gets very confusing when people are using KDE or PulseAudio or Ubuntu or slightly different configuration to what I have.

My config:
Debian Squeeze 2.6.32
Alsa (just because I was using that in Lenny and it was working, no other reason)

Skype is pretty good - it has the sound configuration built in, so I say ring the speakers and it does. I say talk to the headset and it does. Rhythmbox is my music player (again just because I was using it under Lenny) however it only wants to play through the headset. I can't seem to get it to play to the speakers attached to the rear port.

Summary of some settings (transposed manually)
# aplay -l
*** List of PLAYBACK hardware devices ***
card 0: Headset (Logitech) device 0: usb audio
subdevice 0/1
card 1: Intel HDA device 0: ALC883 Analog

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alsa Not Working At Startup?

Aug 2, 2010

My audio was working just fine up until today, when I was working on some audio production stuff. I did QjackCtl, and also ran pulse-jack so I could use another app not in jack. Now, upon a boot up, there is no gnome-volume-control-applet or gnome-volume-control running. When I run gnome-volume-control it says there is no sound device (without Jack running). When I do it with Jack and Pulseaudio running (doing QjackCtl and pulse-jack), gnome-volume-control shows info about jack, but no hardware. I have sound, I just can't affect it volume-wise, etc. When I run pacmd I get this:

$ pacmd
Daemon not responding.

When I close QjackCtl I then get an error in a window that says merely: Waiting for sound system to respond.

Fedora Hardware :: Built-in Laptop Speakers Don't Auto-mute / Turn Off

Jun 6, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Set-up Virtualbox To Auto-run Upon Startup?

Jul 10, 2010

Is there a way to set-up Virtualbox to auto-run upon startup.

I am working on my mothers computer and she has to have Windows for Internet Explorer. The websites she has to go on for work require IE6+, and there are a couple programs she has to run that only works with windows may work with Wine.

But she wants something more stable than windows... She has really bad luck when it comes to Windows, so I was talking to her about Ubuntu. After thinking everything over, If I could get her computer to startup with Virtualbox and run Win XP in it all her problems may be solved.She has 2 computers so I can play with one of them to figure it all out and she can play and learn Ubuntu.
