Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound After Update - When Click Sound Option On Speaker Icon Get Nothing Listed Under Hardware
Feb 16, 2010
I recently updated my computer Using 9.10 and I updated on the 14th. Before the update my sound was working great. No problems, but afterwards my sound is completely gone and under hardware when I click the sound option on the speaker icon I get nothing listed under hardware.
I am using the HP DV2810 US notebook PC. With this being listed as the audio device.
I will also list the updates from my synaptic history. I'm having to use Win7 . And i only wanted that for the few games that one run well in wine.
I bought a $400 Dell Vostro V130, and decided to put 10.10 netbook remix onto it. (Vostro V130 owners: after the reboot into the new system, there is no GUI. worse, after log in, a startx means the screen goes dead. fortunately, a power key event is still detected, so reboot still works cleanly. after I did a full apt-get update, apt-get dist-upgrade, and apt-get upgrade, the screen and remix worked.)
I would now like to increase the bass, systemwide (so that ..... gets sound that is a little better). the speaker icon on the top right gets me into sound preferences, but I do not see an equalizer.
For a couple of days ago, maybe a week or two I beguinne to get a 'snap-sound' in my compurt sound, like an eletrick charge or someting. I comes with about a minutes period. I resently find out that it came from the center-speaker. I run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and have this sound-card: 00:09.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP73 High Definition Audio (rev a1)
My speaker system is Logitech X-530 I have located the problem to center-speaker, but the snap-sound only disappear if I mute the center, not lower the input, in the GNOME ALSA Mixer. I have tried to disconnect the antenna to the analoge-TV-tuner. Has anyoe a similar problem, and a trick to fix it? I don't know if it's related to any recent update of the system?
I'm relatively new to Ubuntu, so please forgive me if I seem a little ... After installing Lucid Lynx, I had some sound issues that I've been attacking over the past few days. I've gotten it down to the point where .mp3s and other sound effects play on 2.1, instead of my full 5.1 setup, with the exception of using Code: speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6 -l1 -twav which will play from every speaker. Relatedly, I have no volume control icon in my toolbar, and when I go to System --> Preferences --> Sound, an error window pops up that says, "Waiting for Sound System to Respond." Currently, I am using the ALSA Mixer GUI to adjust my volume and whatnot. My sound card is a Sound Blaster Audigy SE CA106, and here's the yield from various terminal commands:
Code: uname -a Linux DeskingtonJefferson 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:27:30 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux Code: aplay -l
I would like sound from mono sources to play in both speakers/earphones. How do I do this? Currently, it plays in only one side (which makes for an odd listening experience).I generally use banshee to play sound.
I have bought a laptop 2 months ago with pre installed windows7 and installed Ubuntu 10.04 64bit but still didnt get sound from the speakers. With headphones everything is OK . I have unmuted everything and searched forums but nothing so far. In windows I get speaker sound so it is not hardware problem. In alsamixer it appears I have 2 soundcards, one HDA -intel (chip Realtek ALC272) and a second one HDA nvidia ( a virtual one propably from my nvidia VGA ) that lacks controls . With lspci -v , it appears both use the same driver :Kernel driver in use: HDA IKernel modules: snd-hda-intel . Tried to disable the first one from bios but it didnt help I also tried sound adjustment in preferences -> sound and gnome-alsamixer, nothing From gnome alsamixer, when I mute speakers, the headphones also get mute so may be the system doesnt recognize speakers and headphones separately ? May be it has to do with config files but my linux knowledge is low
I've look at Alsa Mixer. There are two tabs (IDT ID 76c7 and ATI R6xx HDMI). I turned the second one off, since I don't have any HDMI sound output device connected to the computer. On the other tab, there are five sliders (Master, PCM, Front Mi, Line and Mic). They are all turned on, and the first two are at maximum volume.
It seems to me that Ubuntu is not recognizing whatever controls the rear speaker jack.
After cheering the Ubuntu Developers team on the great work they did with hardware recognition, I was suddenly stunned by the silence from my USB speakers this afternoon. Although previously correctly recognized and fully functional, after installing several non- audio updates, the sound from my USB speakers ceased.Moreover, this pair of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers aren't even listed on the Sound menu (System > Preferences > Sound) although lsusb lists them correctly. I have an embedded sound adapter to which no speakers are connected. My PC runs on Ubuntu 10.04. What should I do to get the sound through my USB speakers?
I don't get any sound from my left speaker. With my headphones plugged in though I get sound in both speakers. I've upgraded my Kernel to .36. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I'm on an MSI A7200 which is a great laptop but apparently a very rare one. There's like no info on it at all on the internet.
I don't know what I did but I lost all audio. I'm running F15 with gnome 3. By opening system settings and then sound I don't find anything muted. Under hardware I have 3 devices, the first is RS880 Audio Device (Radeon HD 4200) this one has no sound at all when I click test speakers. Then I have quickcam comm STX and then I have Internal Audio which works by clicking on test speakers.. I have no clue of where to start to fix this but reinstall everything again.
I've HP 6735b laptop and I was running my sound with rebuilding alsa ./configure --with-card=hda-intel
Ubuntu 9.04 updated itself and after I've realized that sound is coming both speaker and headset while headset is plugged. I restarted it, and sound has gone completely. I've tried to install alsa again with --with-card=hda-intel and it worked, sound came back but still both headset and speaker work together while headset plugged. I've tried something at here [URL]. After that sound has gone completely again. I've tried to install alsa again --with-card=hda-intel but didn't came back. Now I've got no sound also the sound icon at the top panel is gone too.
this morning after a reboot I made a discover. Clicking on tabs, launching applications, and so on, make annoying and stupid sounds from my speakers. CLICK, BOP, BLAP! Who decided to turn these things on? I'm listening MUSIC, I don't wanna those stupid sounds bother me! Anyway, I was suddendly on System -> Preferences -> Sound and I choosed Sound Theme: NO SOUND. But those annoying sounds are already there. And there's no way to disable them! Is this a BUG or what? Is there something to do?
I also discovered another thing: clicking on items that are at RIGHT of my screen, the sound come from RIGHT. Clicking on center, they come from center. Right, right. So I realize that sounds are stereophonic. And really I can't understand why a software developer choosed to waste his time coding a piece of code to do this, instead of solving the hundred millions of bugs we're affected from YEARS.
I just installed Ubuntu Lucid beta 2 on my desktop, and I can't seem to get the sound to work. I have a Soundblaster Audigy 2 card and the motherboard has built-in sound, but ubuntu doesn't recognize either of them. The only hardware option I have in my sound preferences is for SPDIF, and thats the only thing that shows up in alsamixer as well.
In the sound preferences if i set the sound to ALSA sound skips like a scratched CD when i move, maximize, open, close window. If i set the sound to PulseAudio sound skips on everything (vlc ,banshee)except Totem.
On both of these options Banshee is rendered totally unusable. If i set the sound to ESD, than VLC and Banshee work fine though VLC still skips a little bit though less than before. Totem however will no longer be able to play most of the files it could before without extreme unbarable static. Though some files it will still play fine.
HOWEVER with all three of these there is no skipping whatsoever when i play sound on ..... videos in the browser whereas if i play the same video in .flv on a media player the same problems persist.. so the browsers seem unaffected
OSS is by far the best in terms of skipping, none whatsoever. However OSS has a constant steady crackle behind anything that is playing. The crackle is low but still irritating and the crackling makes my ears ring after but i can still listen to music and just try my best to ignore it much like listening to a radio station that barely comes in. So how do i either to stop the static behind OSS... or stop the skipping with ALSA and Pulse, or stop the crackling in ESD or OSS??
I am using 9.10(64bit). I want to add custom .wav sound as system sound theme.i.e when i close a program ubuntu will play a sound(custom). I can't find any option on sound preference menu. I searched in google but failed to find any useful post.
I'm not able to hear any sounds from my system. The panel does not have the volume control button anymore. I'm not able to run System -> Preferences -> Sound. I get an error saying "Waiting for sound system to respond" And if I run 'pavucontrol' in the terminal, I get "Connection failed: Connection refused"
Also recently I've noticed that when I run some commands in the terminal I often get this message "Home directory /root not ours." Can this be related to the sound problem? I am on the system as root.
Everything was fine until I upgraded to the Beta 2, now the sound only comes out of my left headphone speaker and stereo speaker. My sound settings are the same and I have double checked them.Anyone else having this issue? Anyone know how to fix it?
I thought the message received sound was too quiet in Empathy 18.104.22.168 and figured out that it was playing the file located here:[URL]...I replaced this file with a more suitable sound file but I have since noticed that the sound is only playing through my right speaker. I don't know if this was happening from the start or if I caused it by changing the sound file.
Playing the sound file manually proves there's no issue with the file as it plays correctly, through both speakers. I have no other sound issues.
I have a HP Compaq dc5750 desktop pc, which has a internal speaker for audio playback. My problem is that I can only get audio from this speaker, when I plug something into the rear jack stick, the sound still comes out of the internal speaker. I have tried to install alsamixer and unmuted AUX and Line IN, and increased volume to 100%. Sound is working, but only on internal speaker!.
I have installed 9.10 and do not have any sound at all. i did do a list of playback devices with aplay-l and it did not list anything. I looked in sound props and didn't find one either. I have had other versions of Ubuntu and had no problems. the machine I've loaded is a Toshiba laptop.
So, I've got an Acer 5742G, and the silly thing is only built with one internal speaker. Ubuntu thinks it's my left channel, however Windows 7 'gets it' and plays both channels to that speaker.When I plug in external speakers or headphones, everything works fine.
in fedora 10 things were pretty simpler . all i had to do was double click the volume icon and i could change the volume of each of my speakers individually ...
in fedora 11 that was not possible , this adjustment of volume had become more complicated, however there was this "advanced volume control" or something ... i dont quite remember its name , but thanks to that i could still adjust volume of each of my speakers individually ...
in fedora 12 i m not able to find that application - "advanced volume control" ... how do i adjust the volume of my each of my 5.1 speakers in fedora 12 ?
