Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mute My Laptop From Console?

Feb 4, 2011

Is there a way I can mute my laptop from the console. At times I'm in class and want to log in but... I have to make so much noise.

This will help me switch to a (Ctrl+Alt+ n) terminal and save myself from having to make such loud noises.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Mute MPlayers Console Output

Mar 10, 2011

I'm using mplayer with shell-fm, in my shell-fm.rc I have the line
extern = nice -10 mplayer -really-quiet -ao jack -cache 512 -noar -nojoystick -nolirc -noconsolecontrols -nomouseinput -demuxer lavf -lavfdopts format=mp3 -af-adv force=5:list=resample -af resample=44100:1:2:extrastereo-1.5 -
This to me at least produces a pleasant audio output but despite the -really-quiet option mplayer is still outputting text, generally something like
[mp3 @ 0xa3f5380] max_analyze_duration reached
I've also tried the -msglevel all=-1 option and had a play with the MPLAYER_VERBOSE environmental variable, all with no joy.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mic Mute Button Present On Laptop Is Not Working?

May 29, 2010

I have a lenovo thinkpad and my internal microphone works only when i connect another mic through the jack. Even the mic mute button present on my laptop is not working.(There is no such problem on windows se7en) Earlier, even an external mic never used to work. After some searching i added "options snd-hda-intel model = thinkpad" to my alsa-base.conf file. And then the internal mic started working only when an external mic was connected.

when i type "cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec" i get:
Codec: Realtek ALC269
Codec: Intel G45 DEVCTG

I looked into the HD-Audio-Models.txt but couldn't locate the exact model for ALC269 so i searched online and decided to put model = thinkpad as i'd mentioned earlier. But The alsa-mixer shows card to be HDA Intel and chp as intel g45 devctg. Moreover, even this partial working of mic(s) is when i choose the input source in the alsamixer to be front mic and not int mic.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Headphones Cannot Mute Laptop Speakers

Sep 26, 2010

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.

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 Multimedia :: Headphone Won't Mute Speakers?

Jun 12, 2011

When I plug in my headphone on the front panel of the computer case, sound output is muted on both: headphone and speakers.

When I unmute it, it plays on both at the same time.

I can't seem to get it working properly. I've seen people with the same problem but never figured how they got it working and it usually depended on their computer brand. Anyone?

Might be useful:

lsmod

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mute Button Stopped Working?

Jul 15, 2010

In the last week, I noticed that my compaq 6710b physical controls for volume control/mute stopped working correctly. The volume control is not working anymore and the mute "unmutes" itself after precisely 1 minute.

I was wondering:

1/ did an update modify anything

2/ is there a way for me to know if the problem is physical? like a physical signal sniffer of some sort, or a log that indicates that I pressed mute

3/ Am I alone? and if not, does anyone know of a workaround?

Am running 10.4 Linux vaucher-laptop 2.6.32-23-generic #37-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jun 11 08:03:28 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PulseAudio - Mute Mic Output Through Speakers

Nov 9, 2010

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!)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mute Speakers When Headphones Plugged In

Mar 9, 2011

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speakers Don't Mute When Headphones Plugged In - 10.10

Apr 27, 2011

I have issues with my sound board configuration. My speakers don't mute when headphones are plugged in and my mic doesn't work good.

I have being readed all kinds of forums and I found that the main issue is in that maybe the ALSA is not using the correct model.

I tried modifying the archive:

With different kinds of models but I couldn't found the right one. I tried all the Lenovo ones that I found in:[url]

My laptop is a Lenovo G455 and my sound board is an ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

I love Ubuntu but this is bothering me since I upgrade to version 10.10.

May 10, 2011

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:

Ubuntu :: When Upgraded The Laptop To 11.04 It Wouldn't Boot Properly It Shows The Splash And Then Switches To A Console?

May 9, 2011

I got wireless printing working on my mom's computer... Then when I upgraded the laptop to 11.04 it wouldn't boot properly. It shows the Ubuntu splash and then switches to a console where I can see services starting and stopping. It freezes when it's going through this section of startup. I rebooted and started the machine in recovery mode, then selected low-graphics from the list. It works in low-graphics mode in Ubuntu Classic (my mom doesn't want Unity so I set Classic as the default)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: "All Mute" Sound On Lucid After Attempting To Install Alsa-linux-all.deb

May 31, 2010

My Compaq Presario F700 laptop has Conexant HD-Audio SmartAudio 221 (checking from my Windows partition). I had everything working just fine until yesterday when I attempted to manually install an alsa-linux package that I downloaded sometime ago. Although the .deb package failed to install, it seems it messed things up and now there's no sound. The speaker icon shows "All mute" and I have no clue how to fix this. How do I 'unmute' it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - Framebuffer In Console - Links2

Ubuntu 10.10 - Framebuffer in Console - links2

I've searched and searched and I cannot find the answer. I had links2 -g working in framebuffer in the last release, but in Ubuntu 10.10, I cannot get it to work.

Problem: I do NOT have any framebuffers. /dev/fb0 etc.

I have changed my console font size in grub2 to 640x480 and it works perfectly.

I believe I have all the required framebuffer files and libraries (libs) installed, yet I do NOT have any /dev/fb0 etc.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change Sound Card Via Console?

Nov 6, 2010

I am using a laptop with a built-in sound card, but have a higher quality USB sound card that I plug in to listen to music. The problem with this is that I have to go through the sound options to change the sound card every time I plug the USB card in. what i'm hoping to do is write a simple script to do the job so that I only have to click an icon on the desktop. does anyone know the commands to do this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Console Based Music Players?

Mar 22, 2011

I wonder which are the main disadvantages of using console based music players like cmus. I was looking around for reviews and comparisons with GUI music players but didn't find a lot of information which, to me, is a sign that console based players are so much worse off that there is no need to even compare them to their graphical relatives.

However, as I see it, I gain both speed and free up system resources by running a light weight music player in the terminal rather than one with a GUI. Then, I'm not at all very knowledgeable when it comes to audio players and music files so I'm thinking I'm missing something here. But what? Do I lose some tagging functionality, playlist or equalizer options or maybe even sound quality due to different usage of sound drivers or something? Or do people simply stay away from players like cmus just because they can't point and click with the mouse? (I guess it might be hard to get them to work intuitively with USB-attached mp3-players, but that's not a probelm for me.)
