Ubuntu :: Audio Output Will Not Output Sound To Speakers?
Jul 19, 2011
I don't know anything about ubuntu. Could you guys help me out. I'm pretty knowledgeable with windows if you guys need a printout of something let me know. My friends getting really frustrated about this. Help!!i
So here's the situation. He plugs his audio jack into his computer and then into the speakers but it still plays from the computer speakers.
I have a problem with my sound card Microphone is working, headphones work but with kind of a low audio output, laptop speakers do not work at all. I have checked alsamixer and pulseaudio nothing is muted, tried all sort of different combinations and pulseaudio actually sees that mplayer for example is playing music, or skype is in videocall and using the sound device, but nothing is coming out of the speakers.

Running 10.10 and win 7 on my HP dv6-2150us laptop and I'm having a few issues.
First how do I get HDMI audio output to my TV? I think I have just a integrated Intel graphics card. It works fine in windows but I can't seem to get it to work in Ubuntu. I tried searching but couldn't find anything pertaining to this issue.
I have this file:Code:vid-gd-19940626-peggy.rmI would like to extract the audio and copy to a file to burn on a CD.'pitivi' will load the file and show the audio timeline. But I can not find a save or copy button.'vlc' will play the file but I can not find how to seperate/save the audio.I found a 'ffmpeg' that is suppose to read whatever is being sent to your speakers.Code:ffmpeg -f oss -i /dev/dsp -f video4linux2 out.wavThis produce a file that 'mplayer', 'vlc', 'audacity' will load but it is empty of useful data. Black screen only.This is the second week I have worked on this. Either I'm googling for the wrong words or what I'm reading, I don't understand.
i'm running fedora 12 on a dell dimension 4600. audio seems to work reasonably well for things like flash animation but i cannot for the life of me figure out how to route line-in audio through the system for output to my external speakers. on the sound preferences application on the gnome desktop: if i select the hardware tab and analog stereo input is selected, then i go to the input tab and have analog line-in selected, i see the v-u meter above moving around as though there is actually an input. [list]
but, i hear no sound. the output tab shows "dummy output" with no other choices. to get audio working for videos and other flash sites, i have to change to hardware->analog surround 5.0 output. such documentation as i have been able to find doesn't seem to describe my setup well, and in any case, i find all this fidgeting with hardware configurations an immense step back from the old alsa software. if this is going to be the future of linux audio, can i say, please, no?
I'm a new user of Linux and just recently installed Debian 8 on my computer, an Emachines W3118. My problem is that the audio went out a couple of days ago and I don't know WHY it went out, no audio, and HOW to get it back on. I tried several command line methods that didn't work, probably because they didn't completely relate to the problem with me being a Linux beginner and all. When I manually turn the knob on the speaker up, I can hear noise to where the speakers sound like they're physically operational, but with no output or input.
I just installed 10.10 and I'm having an issue where sound outputs from the headphones and my speakers simultaneously, and the volume control controls both outputs rather than one of them individually.This has been asked about before at this thread, but none of the solutions I've tried from there have worked. I tried installing linuxant, but it just killed my sound altogether despite uninstalling it afterward. I tried updating the Linux audio modules as per this page but to no avail.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) on my own custom built desktop, which for what it's worth, contains this motherboard.
Ever since I installed Debian, when I plug in the headphones the sound goes out through both the headphones and the speakers (they aren't blocked). I don't mind it that much, but could it be potentially damaging to my sound hardware?
I finally got audio working on my ubuntu 9.10 desktop... now I am having sound issues watching movies from a network share.The sound device continually randomly changes to "dummy output device" and then there is no sound output. The sound icon dissapears on the toolbar. To get it back and audio to start working I have to $sudo alsa force-reloadIt seems to happen everytime there is a network delay, the movie will stop for a second and then when it plays the sound is gone
My friend has following configuration Pentium 4 2.4 Ghz 256 MB DDR RAM Western Digital WD1600AVJS-63WNA0 hard disk PM8M-VHMS7104 VER 3.0 motherboard The motherboard has Realtek sound card built in but there is no sound output. He is using Ubuntu 9.10.
In 10.04 when i plugged my HiFi into a USB port audio would automatically switch to play out of it.Now in 10.10 i need to plug my hifi in then go to 'sound preferences'>'output' and select USB codec as my output AND unmute the device.Does anyone know of a way to revert to 10.04 behaviour?
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!)
Say I have 2 speakers connected to 2 different sound cards. Under Windows, is it possible to have some sort of virtual device that would forward an audio stream to both sound cards? If this can't be easily done under Windows, a solution for Linux is also fine. lternatively, if the 2 speakers are connected to different channels of a sound card, is there any vendor-independent way to duplicate audio to both channels?
I am having an intel machine with linux' redhat 5.4 distro. It's superb when it comes to server making and other admin. kind of stuffs but it fails when it comes to multimedia for i am unable to configure the sound file (asound.rc), i tried various codes but it only gives sound output on 2 front speakers. i want to activate other two rear speakers and the center one as well. this is my card info Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8237 AC97 Audio Controller
this is what my sound files have /etc/asound.conf -------- #Generated by system-config-soundcard, do not edit by hand #SWCONF #DEV 0 defaults.pcm.card 1
I want to create a small simple application that will let me change the Output of the Sounds option to go from speakers to my headphones. I can do this easily enough through System --> Preferences --> Sound, but I'd like to create a GUI front end for me to do this. This is more as a learning exercise than anything else.What is the best language for me to build the windows to do this? Also, how do I find the commands to let me toggle the sound settings? Where are they documented? I'm using Ubuntu 10.04.
This started today in my session: no audio output. In sound preferences, hardware, in Profile, the options are now Off and Analog mono input. In Output tab, I see Dummy output stereo as the device. Nothing is muted.
I have a fresh install of Natty and i'm having some issues getting sound to work. My laptop has a built in sound card which works just fine. However, i also have a usb 5.1 sound card which isn't working at all. Both devices show up in 'Sound Preferences' but when i select the 5.1 device as the output device sound doesnt work. I ran the alsa-info.sh script and the output can be found here.
I've dedicated most of today attempting to get some sound out of my Debian Lenny installation and I'm getting nowhere. I've tried a varity of potential solutions and still no peep from the machine. I'm using ALSA (and ran the 'alsaconf' utility with no errors and then used 'alsamixer' confirming that the volumne is set and not muted) for sound playback but nothing works?!? Here's some of the output that may resonate to some people...
I've tried everything that I could find online and installed a variety of alsa related stuff, but at this stage my lack of experience (coming from a Windows background) is really beginning show. The only unexplored thing is that the device is not listed in the xorg.conf file, but there doesn't seem to be many mentions of this online and a possible red herring. The only other thing is that when running the 'alsaconf' utility it does show two cards installed on the system, these are: via82xx and legacy. I've always selected 'via82xx' as the other options prompts 'Probing legacy ISA cards might make your system unstable.' I'm plugging the speakers into the 'green' audio out socket.
Finally, when running videos on mplayer it does report that it is using alsa as the audio output option and it doesn't highlight are errors...Oh yeah - the speakers have been tested and do work.
Have you ever wanted to record a sound heard from your computer or website? If yes outRec is perfect for you. This simple but powerful application let you to record your sound card audio output easily in a few steps and save it in different kinds of formats like wav, mp3 or ogg.

To get it work you need to install the dependencies with:
My audio setup is based on a single guitar amplifier, and from this I suffer from only being able to listen to one of the two stereo channels. Since I honestly don't care for stereo, I'd rather force Ubuntu to output all audio as mono instead of "upgrading" to a stereo compatible setup.Is there a way to do this?
I have just gotten unbuntu install and was force to learn cuase while installing i accidently messed up the part of windows it needs to start i think on another hard drive.
i dont mind anymore. its a easy learn but now i down to the nitty gritty stuff.my audio outputs. i have a biostar board with reltek onboard audio.board model: TF8200 A2+ now i am just looking for a way to manage what one of the 6 ports do what.. like before in windows 7 with the realtek program. i could make every single on back their all fronts. or all line ins. or anything in between.
i dont really no what else to say. what ever other info you need just ask and ill reply fast.ps Ubuntu is awesome. its so slick with compiz and conky is nice to. only other problem i have now is music manager/player/mp3 sync. anyone know a good program off the top of your head?
I have a problem with the audio output in Fedora 15. It seems 'dirty' to me, like with a lot of distortion. I use for the output a nice USB DAC that seems to run very good with Ubuntu and Windows, strangely with Fedora isn't the same. I say strangely because the sound pipeline must be very similar to that of Ubuntu, no? Kernel, ALSA, Pulseaudio and so on. How could I improve mine audio output? Tried with Flash videos and Audacious audio player. Lowering audio output (like to 50%) greatly improve audio quality! Why is permitted to the system to go over and distort?
