Ubuntu Multimedia :: Headphones Not Muting Laptop Speakers
Oct 12, 2010
I've been having this problem in multiple versions of ubuntu from 6.04 to 10.04(which i am currently using). I have a hp 500 laptop(quite old) and when i plug in the headphones it plays sound from both the headphones and the laptop speakers. This doesn't happen when i'm using windows xp. if there are any threads about this please direct me to them if not give me advice on what to do.
I would like to disable the headphone jack shutting off main speakers when I plug headphones in. I know this sounds odd. But when I use mixxx I would like to be able to use the line out for external amp hook up. The headphones for cueing. This worked after I installed mixxx but once I rebooted the computer it no longer worked.
Im running Jessie, and have run into issue with my laptop sound card.
If is shutdown the laptop with the headphones plugged in, and remove them while its off, system wont recognize they are not there any more and is probably sending sound out to this output. To get the sound out to my laptop speakers I need to plug the headphones while the system is up, and remove them again. Only then will the output device work properly.

I might have a different problems as I have a newer laptop, a HP dv6-2170us with intel i5 cpu. I had no wireless with the 2.6.31 kernel so I upgraded to the 2.6.34 and had to manually compile my wireless driver. Everything works great now except the sound issue. I thought it use to work out the box with the old kernel, but then again I might be wrong. I knwo it works in the "other os" dual booting and all. Its a not a huge issue, but hopeing I could resolve it. Here is some of the info from reading some of the other posts. the model=dell-vostro I just tried to see if that works, which is doesnt, so thats why thats in my sound.conf file.
Have I missed anything? I have tried the fix here: Audio coming from both headphone and laptop speakers - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums page 3 about adding a repo and upgrading, but that upgrade wants me to revert back to the older kernel in which case I dont have wireless support or acpi working proporly, so thats not a doable thing for me.
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 have a Dell Vostro 2520 and when I plug in the headphones, the speakers don't mute. I tried to edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file several times to put different things in, that I found on the internet but non of them worked.

I am using opensuse 11.2 KDE. I hear sound only in headphones but not in speakers of laptop COMPAQ presario 2700. /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf looks like this:options snd slots=snd-intel8x0# W60f.Zmi7iE4Vbq5:82801CA/CAM AC'97 Audio Controlleralias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
When I play audio, the sound comes only out of the laptop speakers, not the headphones that are plugged in. I downloaded ALSA mixer and nothing on it seems to help, although at the top in the middle it says Intel IbexPeak HDMI, which I guess is my sound card.
I have an issue where my laptop speakers work just fine, but when I plug in headphones, I get no noise. I'm using openSUSE 11.4.I found others with the same issue, but this guy's solution looks like he might be using some different version and his solution doesn't work (can't find the file he edited).
I am new to fedora 13. My problem is that I can not hear any sound from my laptop's internal speakers (that works f9 in windows--so no h/w probs!) but when I connect external headphones, everything is heard.I have tried several commands from various internet sources since past one week. I don't understand many of the commands that I have run, but that has somehow helped me to run media files and hear sound on HEADPHONES.
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.
Audo is working fine through the Internal laptop speakers. when i plug in my headphones, nothing happens, the audio continues to play through the speakers, and nothing comes from the headphones. ive tried changing up things in sound preferences and alsa-mixer, but nothing seems to be working.
Im 100% sure the head phone jack isn't broken, and the headphones aren't broken (they both work in windows just fine.) Im running 10.04, on an amd-64x HP-dv3.
After updating my kernel my sound stopped working. I followed the sound problems guide in the sticky thread at the top of this forum and I've now got it to the point where I get sound through the headphones but not through the laptop speakers. Here is my sound info (output from alsa-info.sh thingy). I've added various lines to the end of my alsa-base.conf but no luck.
I have installed 10.04 on my sony vaio, model VPCF115FM, and when I plug in my headphones I can hear sound, but not from the speakers when I unplug the headphones. I have checked the alsamixer to make sure nothing was muted.
I replaced the motherboard and now the sound on 11.04 only comes from the headphone jack. however when i boot into bios i can get the bios to beep through speakers. the speakers also do not produce sound on a Ubuntu live CD. Here is my output of lspci so you can see all my hardware inside. p.s. its a laptop dell stidio 1558
I have an HP Pavilion Desktop computer with integrated speakers in the screen. When I do not have any headphones plugged in my headphone jack, sound is coming out of the speakers.When I plug headphones in my headphone jack, sound is coming out of both the speakers and the headphones. I would like for sound to come only from the headphones when they are plugged in.
so my problem is that i can't disable the speakers on my laptop when i plug in my headphones. in other words, i get sound from both the headphones and the speakers, when the expected behavior is to disable the speakers when headphones are plugged in, and enable the speakers when headphones are unplugged..
i've been looking around the forum and google, and i found a way to adjust the speaker and headphone volume manually in alsamixer. To adjust the headphone volume on alsamixer, i can raise or lower volume using the "Front" volume bar. To adjust the speaker volume, i raise or lower volume on the "Speaker" volume bar.
so, it's cool to know that i can do this manually, but i'm sure there's an option i can put in alsa-base.conf to automate this. i just can't seem to find that option...
anyway, i'm using Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit...and here's my alsa-base.conf file
I'm sure this has probably come up before, but I could't find an already existing thread. I have ubuntu 10.04 and when I plug my headphones into the headphone jack, they come on, but the speakers don't shut off.
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'm having an issue with my computer and the headphones. When I plug in the headphones into the headphone jack, the sound plays through the headphones but it also plays through the speakers as well at the same time. I've attempted to play around with the sound settings to see if I can get this issue resolved but I have not been able too. Computer specifications are in my signature.
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.
I was trying to fix my audio, I had it coming out of my headphones and speakers at the same time. I was told to run this script to try to fix the problem but it only made it worse. I've attached screen shots showing that I now have no hardware showing.
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 have an old Acer Travel Mate 290 with OpenSuSE 11.3 (LXDE) 30G and 240Mb RAM. I don't have sound in the internal speakers, I only have sound through the headphones. Here you will find the information of alsa-info.sh [URL]
