I like the system beep because I can tell checkgmail to beep when an email comes, that way my speakers don't have to be on.Anyways, I did a fresh install of Karmic the other day. Something is being weird with me when I try to re-enable the beep. Karmic blacklisted pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf . Here's what happens:I leave "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep", and it beeps. Good.
Then I comment out "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "beep". Nothing. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep". Nothing. I do "lsmod | grep pcspkr". It's listed there as it should be. I check with "sudo grep pcspkr /var/log/dmesg" and find no errors.
I've been using my girlfriend's Mackbook Pro and really like the beep sound when pressing backspace at a command prompt and really would like to have it on my ubuntu. However, I've checked "Terminal bell" option in the profile settings, but there is still no beep sound. What am I missing here?
I have a HP Laptop with Ubuntu Hardy installed. The system beep makes rapid clicking sound at login window that slowly dissipate and clicking that, so far I can only fix by rebooting, when I play music, reboot after hibernating, and when waking up from suspend. I've turned the system beep off in System/Preferences/Sound but it doesn't do anything.
after installing linux mint 7, I have been getting one beep on shutdown, a google search on this came back as a ram problem...but then i ran across a bunch of posts on ubuntu forums about one beep on shutdown, with an older version of ubuntu, grep does return some paramter errors, but in the mint bug report page those are listed as : benign ignore. it doen't bother me in the least, as long as it isn't a warning of impending hardware failure.
just installed Lucid 64-bit. everything running smoothly including the sound except no system beep from PC speaker. system beep is enabled in system -> preferences -> sound. What else can I try? I'm dual booting with Hardy and system beep works fine in Hardy.
Is there anywhere I can check what is causing this loud system beep or a way to fix this?? I really don't know where to start on this issues. Possibly restart log files but not sure where they're located.
ok so a while ago i updated ubuntu and the sound stopped working. i cant hear anything now not even a system beep - i tried the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide by LordRaiden but to no success. i tried alsamixer and all that to check its muted, and its not.
I live in a crowded area so I have to use headphones almost all of the time. I just leave them plugged in so when an alarm goes off from Thunderbird or Evolution, I can't hear it. Is there a way to get some use out of my internal system speaker and have a reliable calendar-event-reminder and alarm? I'm talking about the one that will beep from inside the computer even if you have headphones plugged in.
I have a problem which is a great inconvenience to me. I want to say that I've been searching for the answer for a week and couldn't find anything but problems similar to mine which were unresolved.I used to have debian lenny, but one day i decided to reinstall my operating system and upgraded to sid, so I have a fresh install of debian sid with gnome. The system beep no longer works on gnome.
What I mean, when i move to terminal(like ctrl+alt+f1) it works great, it also works when i type 'beep' in gnome-terminal. but it doesnt make a sound when i e.g. press ctrl+G, when i am being called on irssi, when i press backspace in gnome-terminal. These things used to work in Lenny, and I really need them (especially this hiliting in irssi). I would go back to Lenny if i didnt need some software that is not present for that version of debian. The pcspkr module is loaded
I have a Dell Latitude D520 with an Intel 945GM Integrated Graphics Card. I have been unable to get the desktop effects to work in either Jaunty or Karmic. When selecting Normal/Extra/Custom, I get an error:
Code: Desktop effects could not be enabled Graphics card info: Code: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS, 942/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03) I've looked at countless threads pertaining to this issue, but nothing I could find resolved my issue.
My sound was working fine until 2 days ago, but now it just doesn't. I can't play any songs, but I can get the system beep and the "master sounds" (if you run alsamixer it's the first column that I'm talking about). It seems that my sound card is recognized. I followed quite a few instruction I found online, but nothing seems to work. A couple more details:- If I go to System -> Preferences -> Sound, in the Input tab there is no device for my sound input.
- If I type "sudo aplay -l" in the terminal, I get the following: card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog] Subdevices: 0/1
i use Fluxbox (Mint in Karmic, but after few tweaks and updates i have to reinstall system-but i couldn't even make with gparted and usb-creator startup disk, so i used virtual machine in Mac OS to make some older version (Mint 7 XFCE).BUT, then i discovered that i can not even load the system from USB-although it was all set in bios to startup with USB Stick. How can i persuade my dell mini 10v to start up from live USB Stick.
it has been a year since I've started using Ubuntu linux, and for being calm that everything is working properly, I would like to do a full system check. The only option I've found is on System=> Administration=> System Testing, but this wasn't what I was searching for (mainly because I don't know what is written there- I don't know enough for running this option). Is there something else I can do? maybe something through Terminal?I want to run such a check also because the system sometimes work slowly, and maybe something went wrong...
After I upgraded Jaunty to Karmic, I found that my grub menu has two pairs of OS options and that the kernel is slightly different between the two. The highest numbered kernel seems to be a working OS release but the next choice in the list does not work correctly - its mouse pointer is invisible!I originally had installed Intrepid in a partition and I used it for a while. Then I decided to upgrade to Jaunty so I put that release in a different partition. I had major troubles getting the system going after the upgrade but I eventually succeeded.Later, I decided to try out Karmic so I created a Live CD of it and tested that. It seemed to be good so I decided to do a standard upgrade. At this point I still had the original Intrepid version on disk in its own partition. The release notes suggested that a network upgrade was the preferred way to upgrade to Karmic so I did that, even though I had the CD. The process seemed to complete OK. I was getting some X windows complaints and X was running in low graphics mode so I uninstalled and reinstalled the fglrx driver; X was happy afterwards. That seemed to be the only significant problem with the upgrade.I noticed that my grub menu now had three fairly new selection pairs, as well as the memtest and the original Intrepid software. I had gained two pairs during the Karmic upgrade. I could not tell which was which by the kernel numbers. I decided that three sets were inappropriate and I decided to remove one set. I was hoping to remove whichever set was superfluous or unnecessary. I picked the oldest of the three (i.e., the one with the smallest kernel number) and used Synaptic to abolish it.
Now, I had two pairs left. The topmost pair is a working Karmic version which I am using right now. The other pair seems to be a broken version of Karmic. By that, I mean that it starts up exactly the same as the working version but when it gets to the login screen then there is no cursor! Actually, the cursor is there but it is invisible. I found that I could run the cursor all the way to the top right corner, click the left mouse button, and get the shutdown/restart/etc. menu. The keyboard's arrow keys could then be used to select a menu item and the mouse button would activate it. But all the while, the cursor was invisible! Of course, this makes the system useless.So, I think that I need to use Synaptic to remove the malfunctioning pair. Questions: why did the upgrade give me two kernels? Would it be safe to remove the earlier one?What I would really like is to have both Karmic and Jaunty available from the grub menu. I am afraid that I will have to do a new install in a different partition to get Jaunty back onto the system, and then will have to repeat all of the customizing and software installations that I have applied during the last year or so. Does anyone know of a shortcut around that?
I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
A local store built a brand new dual core system for me about a month ago with a 1TB drive and installed Karmic on the entire drive. I now have a piece of external hardware that requires XP and simply will not work in XP in Virtualbox. I have purchased another 1TB drive, and my thinking is to create an XP partition of about 2-300GB and leave the rest of the drive for another Karmic partition and dual-boot. I don't care which drive is primary (unless there is a reason I should).
I was thinking of unplugging the karmic drive and putting the new drive in it, installing XP on it, then adding the Karmic drive back to the system and editing one of the boot files to add the other operating system.
If so, which boot file should I edit? Which drive should be primary? Or, is there a better, easier way to do this?
I have had a new install of Karmic from CD and have done all updates and added a few applications like VLC and a few others. I have several different media players, Totem, VLC, Xine, and gxine. I started out thinking Totem might be enough, but added VLC as it can handle just about anything, and then the other just to see of any thing happened.
I have installed all restricted and unrestricted packages from the Medibuntu depositories I can find. Still my laptop will not read any kind of DVD. I am region 2, but have tried both bought region 1 and region 2 DVDs. I had this problem last time I installed Ubuntu, but after installations of a few applications and messing about it suddenly worked. I really didn't know why or what suddenly was working.
I have the System of 9.04, but have a Live CD of Ubuntu 9.10 too. But, I do not want to download all the massive Upgrades. Still, Ubuntu 9.10 is the best! So, can I upgrade 9.04 to 9.10 using the Live CD? (Offline).
My Ubuntu Karmic running system experiences random lockups. There is no pattern in when it will happen, it can go for days without one, or happen every couple hours. Only thing I can notice is that it happens most often when I run Firefox, but when it happens, it happens regardless of me having Firefox open on a website with lots of Flash content or not. When the lockup happens, I cannot move the mouse - the led light on my mouse shuts off, I can't move the cursor, the whole UI becomes unrensponsive, there is no blinking lights on the keyboard, REISUB does not work, only hitting the reset button on my case helps. After reboot, there are no indications of errors in any of the logs that I can see.I have ran memtest for 24 hours, and it completed without errors.

Last Monday I upgraded the Ubuntu from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx in my laptop (HP Compaq volna 515), and I have no sound. Searching in linux forums for an answers, I've got that (as far as I understand) there's no unique solution for this problem.
This is my lspci code...
Also, I tried to clean up the pulse audio .. What is funny for me is that pulse audio and alsa, and the audio players seems to work normally (no error of device not found or something like that).. except that there's no sound out from the speakers.
Any suggestion to discover if the problem is drivers, kernel, packages, or hardware failure? more important, how do I get the sound back?
Whenever I try loading ksystemlog application I get an error message saying "The file '/var/log/syslog' does not exist". Can anyone let me know how do I fix this issue? Screenshot of the message attached.
I insert a certain cdrom into my DVD drive, the cd is mounted meaning I do can see the cd rom icon on my desktop. The cd rom icon name is the correct label of the cdrom but when I try to open the cdrom it results to be empty.
Then on the same computer I have installed Virtual Box and the Windows 7 image does read the content of the cdrom.
How can I read the content of the cdrom with ubuntu 9.10?
