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!)
I've been bashing my head against this problem for weeks now. The problem is that my external speakers are not being muted when I plug in headphones. I get sound through both the speakers and the headphones at the same time. This is happening on every Linux distro I've tried so far on this box, but in Windows everything behaves as expected. I've tried every option I have in both alsamixer and the Gnome sound preferences, to no avail.
Curiously, if I mute any one of the audio channels or toggle the headphone switch in alsamixer, all sound output is muted, to both the speakers and headphones. The audio chipset is a Realtek ALC888, on a Gigabyte GA-770TA-UD3 motherboard (6 jacks, optical and coaxial S/PDIF out). I must've tried a dozen different models in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, and none of them seem to make any difference at all.
I have a Toshiba Satellite L650 with a Conexant 5069 sound card, and when I plug in my headphones the built-in speakers don't mute. I already tried adding options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (I also tried auto, toshiba, thinkpad and ideapad). This is the alsactl init output: Unknown hardware: "HDA-Intel" "Conexant ID 5069" "HDA:14f15069,1179fd12,00100302" "0x1179" "0xff1e" Hardware is initialized using a guess method.
I recently installed Ubuntu alongside my Windows 7 and everything is great except the sound. Whenever I play sounds the audio only comes out of my built in speakers and the headphone jack does nothing. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 on a Toshiba Sattelite L655D-S5066.
I recently migrated back to Linux after a 2 year stint with Mac OS X. One feature I liked from the Mac side was that there were 2 audio modes in terms of volume and mute. For example, I can mute my laptop speakers (just press mute), plug in headphones, set volume, and watch a movie. If I accidentlaly unplug the headphones, sound wouldn't come out of the laptop speakers since they are muted.
Was wondering whether this is available in Ubuntu? I wouldn't want to bother the office or the people I'm flying on the plane with.
I get sound from my speakers but not from my headphones. When headphones are plugged in the speakers are muted. In the mixer, all sliders are at 100%. Headphones were tested and worked on another system. Here is some information about my system.
I own a netbook (samsung nf210 to be exact) which has Linux Mint 10 installed. What I want to do is to make both, headphones and speakers, play the same output at the same time. I believe it is possible to make it since many people are facing such condition and treat it as a pulseaudio bug (or smth like that) And it would be perfect if it was possible to easily switch between the modified configuration (dual output) and original configuration. I've noticed there are some profiles (analog output, duplex, surround etc.). Is there any way to modify those profiles? If it was, I could modify the Analog Surround Output 4.0 profile and assign rear speakers to headphones and front speakers to internal speakers of my computer.
I'm running lucid, and my headphones plug is broken, it always detects it is plugged, so the speakers are always off... if i install oss v4, that does not support headphone detection, my internal speakers work flawlessly.
But I want to try the alsa ones, plus i coudn't make all my media keys to work as i intended when i had oss installed...
here is some information that might be relevant code...
i've also tried adding to alsa-base.conf this: options snd-hda-intel model=laptop enable=1 index=0
I have an imac and i recently decided to dual boot Ubuntu as well. The sound is fine on the mac partition but the internal speakers dont work on the Ubuntu side. headphones do work but the volume is oddly low Nothing is muted on alsamixer, and I think i have the right driver for my sound card
All of my audio is working great now on Open Suse 11.2: MP3s, Skype,Flashplayer etc.all are working great. There is only one strange thing that is happening, when I plug in my headphones I get audio coming out of my laptop and my headphones! How can I get my audio to come out of my headphones only when I plug them in?
After I listened to the audio program on the Google Chrome, I downloaded the MP3 to listen again offline. When I clicked on the downloaded MP3 file and using Totem to hear on my computer, there is no sound. I checked the sound preference, there is NO MUTE.
I restarted computer, clicked on the MP3 file with Totem, I can hear. I can hear the sound on ...... Which process should I restart without reboot computer. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. Here is the output after execute command "sudo lshw -c sound"
I'm on an IBM Thinkpad X60. When I plug either headphones or external speakers into the headphone jack (whether on the docking station or the laptop itself), the laptop speakers aren't muted. I can hear sound coming from both simultaneously. I've tried editing the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf in all kinds of ways, my most recent attempt being to add the line:
Code: options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad but still with no success.
I'm using 10.04 with the 2.6.32 kernel. I tried installing the .34 kernel with no better results, so I switched back.
I found a curious issue with my new Dell XPS 8100. On my old Inspiron, as soon as I plugged in the headphones they muted the speakers. That's how it should be, because you listen to headphones so you don't blast your music all over the room. But now, on the 8100, the speakers still blast even if the headphones are plugged in. Headphones Also work, so they're getting a clear signal. It's just simultaneously being played in the rear speakers too.
I just installed Debian Squeeze on my Acer Aspire 7736ZG and I also got some problems with the Realtek ALC888 onboard-sound. Normally, the speakers should mute themselves when headphones are plugged in, but they don't. Instead I hear sound on both, speakers and headphones.
I already installed pulseaudio, but that didn't help. On Ubuntu Maverick (11.01?) I had the problems that the sound didn't play at all until I installed an alsa-driver which was modified by one of the ubuntu developers. Is there any fix like this for Debian Squeeze, too?
I'm using Linux Mint 8, kernel 2.6.31-12 (and I tried several other distributions and had the exact same problem) on my FSC Amilo Pro 3525, where I have Intel HDA (ICH7) and Realtek 883. My problem is that when I plug in my external speakers, they do not mute the internal ones.
I've searched and searched the forums and came up with a half-baked solution where in alsamixer I - almost - mute front, and bring master to maximum, and in that way I hear the internal speakers just a little.. and the external ones play at maybe 1/3 of their normal volume. Every time I reboot I have to do this again. I can't mute front entirely because then it mutes all sound.
I tried adding various options to alsa-conf, which seems to be a fairly often suggested solution, including the one where I identify the model of my notebook, and it did not help.
Now. When I tried to find the answer, I came across several tutorials that suggested adjusting options in volume control, etc, inlcuding jacksense, that I found I don't have listed.
Being pretty ignorant about Linux, I came to the conclusion that it might be Pulseaudio that's causing the problem. For instance, alsamixergui shows Pulseaudio as card. I did try preventing Pulseaudio from loading, did not help.
I'm having some trouble configuring my the sound on my laptop. I'm using Alsa. Playing sound is no problem, but when I plug my Koss headphones into the audio jack the laptop speakers continue playing and sound also comes out of my headphones. When I go to alsamixer from cli the sound card only shows 1 master channel so I can't mute the internal laptop speakers.
Since I bought my computer and I installed Linux on it, I had this problem... Back in the day I never Found a REAL Solution and finally my "solution" (in Fedora) was installing "pavucontrol" to choose the Devices when I needed to Switch.
Via the Pulse Audio Volume Control I was able to Mute speakers or Headphones at my will, even if I had both connected, this thing worked from F12 to F14 very well...
(The same problem is present in every distro I tried and sometimes it was solved the same way in other distros)
But Now, I'm in F15 And my magic workout doesn't work anymore... it doesn't matter wich device I choose as output, the PC simply don't mute one or another and my headphones and speakers sound at the same time.
The Sound card is a HDA INTEL with the Realtek ALC662 rev1 Chip, as I said before, I'm using Fedora 15 KDE (64 Bit version) and I'm running ALSA v 1.0.23 with pulseaudio 0.9.22-5
I've Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my desktop dual boot with Windows 7. This is my motherboard. My motherboard has 6 slots for sound devices and I use a pair of speakers and my headphones together, so they all take up 3 slots, i.e. 1 for speaker, 1 for headphone output and 1 for headphone's mic. I'm able to listen from my headphone as well as speakers at any given point of time on Windows 7, but recently when I installed Ubuntu, it only gives audio output to my headphones, and not my speakers. How I can receive audio output on the speakers as well as headphones?
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.
I just installed fedora 12 on my new lenovo laptop sl510 where I have pulseaudio over my alsa. The problem is, when I plugin headphones in 3.5 jack the speakers dont mute which is really irritating. I tried switching from "analog output" to "analog headphones", but what that does it mutes both.
I Have a fedora 13 X64_86, running on a Asus M3A Board and Phenom 9500 processor. I can Hear the sound but at times its cracky on both Headphone and speakers when i plug-in the headphone jack in the front pannel (front pannel is AC 97), the speakers continue to play. microphone fails to work I have removed Pulse audio and its subcomponents and reinstalled it.
