So I don't use gnome, KDE, or XFCE, but I'm running Xubuntu. I'm constantly playing music via nvlc. While that music's still playing, I'd like to be able to hear a sound I run from the command line via
I've tried on and off over the years messing with pulse, esd, etc. output options for vlc, but never figured out exactly how to do this. In Windows, having a batchfile play a .wav at the same time as an mp3 player is playing music "just works" I know there must be a "just works" solution for Linux.
when I play an MP4 movie everything is great except all I hear is the background sounds in the movie..and non of the foreground (ie the actors speaking)...I have uninstalled pulse audio in the past and use alsamixer for any sound configs.
I have a HP laptop model HP G72 Notebook PC, Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @2.27GHz & the Sound devices are Intel(R) Display Audio & Realtek High Definition Audio.
This machine came loaded with Windows7 & I have successfully dual booted it with Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.3.
The problem I am having is that I cannot get the sound to work at all in Ubuntu. No opening sounds or anything else that I have tried. No Web sounds, no CD sounds... All sounds work fine on the Windows side, but nothing I have tried so far seem to work with Ubuntu & I have tried many options from many threads.
I've worked out how to get ALSA libasound code working for an application. However I can't workout how to get multiple sounds working at once. I can't seem to find any google examples of mutiple sounds. EG tune plays while pressing buttons makes clicks. I'm using an embedded board so need to use ALSA not an addon e.g. sdlmixer, jack, etc.
I've been using opensuse for about a week.(although I'm not completely a linux noob) I've been slowly moving more of the stuff I do on windows over to suse. I thought my sound was working fine until I decided to get mp3s running on amarok. I followed a bunch of guides which didn't work. While I was messing around with stuff I noticed a startup noise. I just assumed it didn't have a startup noise. At some point I broke all of my sound except running wine, so I reinstalled.
Now that I've noticed, none of my notification sounds work. Stuff like skype, firefox, and wine still give me sounds.
(If anyone could point me in the direction of a good place to get mp3s working on amarok would be nice as well.)
I'm currently using Ubuntu 9.10 and since I've installed it, I don't have any sounds at all. Sounds work fine on windows. My version of alsa is 1.0.21. I made sure that I've got nothing muted in alsa mixer and it seems that ubuntu detects my sound card. Card is HDA ATI SB Chip: IDT 92HD75B2X5
I'm having an issue where I can't hear any sounds in Ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit). In the Sounds Preferences, under Hardware it correctly lists "SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio". The sound is not muted, and I've tried cycling through various Profile options in the hardware tab. Since it is correctly detected, I'm thinking that there might be something simple that I'm missing here. The motherboard is an MSI P6N Diamond: [URL]
After I put my laptop for a system update, some of it [sounds] works selectively in my browser when I am watching ..... but when I am playing some musics on my desktop, there's no any sounds coming out. Then I noticed that my Output is still in 100% but 0.00db and a Dummy Output.
I already tried some steps I saw in some threads that has the same problem too but it became worse, I no more [completely] sounds anymore.
Hi, I have a Creative HS-1200 headset. When I am listening to sound through it, and something makes a motion on screen(compiz, movie...really anything) then the sound is distorted. Like it takes a nanosecond pauses to redraw. This does not happen with my normal soundcard. Can anyone tell me how can I fix this?
When I attempt to use a Firefox Addon like Simple Timer, the audio alarm will not work. Instead, I get an error message Could not play the audio file! NS_ERROR_FAILURE I can get the same sounds to play in Google Chrome, but I prefer Firefox.
I'm still new to Ubuntu and I'm trying to get the sound working. I have a Satellite X205-SLi1 and just installed Lucid. Everything is okay, except for the sound. My laptop has 5.1 harman/kardon speakers and I think just some of them are being used and the quality is bad. I'm not sure what to do...
Should be a very simple question - how do I turn off the annoying beeps and bings when I delete a file or somesuch? In the XFCE sound settings I set the theme to none but I'm still getting these noises.
My ssytem is a Ubuntu Maverick install with an XFCE desktop so there may be more than one place I need to disable this.
I've been playing around with my settings for ages now but I cant get GTK-recordmydesktop to record anything other than my mic. Ideally I need the mic and the computer sounds to be recorded, any ideas how this can be done? I've googled around but nothing really helpful comes up. Also, if you need my hardware info, just tell me the command and i'll post the results.
I'm not sure what the technical term for the thing that creates midi sounds. Is it the midi sequencer? or midi driver?Regardless, I'm unhappy with the tones ubuntu produces for its drum midis. Does any one know how to change which tones it uses? I use lilypond to write percussion music and it can be easily translated into a midi file. I like to do this so that I can hear how the music sounds in real life and many mistakes.Unfortunately the toms are painfully low and hard to distinguish.
I'm happily using recordmydesktop-gtk. What I can't figure out is if it's possible to record other then sounds from microphone even system's sounds. For instance, if I start recording while a video is playing in totem I would like to record video sound too. Otherwise if I'm recording some action with windows or programs I would like to record warning/error sound too.
I am on testing, using alsa and i have sound in players, login, flash, skype.....Exept window`s and buttons.
In sounds preferences, there are buttons to test the various system sounds. In this window the checkboxes for Enable sytem sound and Play System Sounds are selected. When I click the various buttons to test the sounds (default sound, drop etc. ) i hear sound themes. But when i close windows and use buttons there is no sound.
I am running Ubuntu remix on my Asus Aspire Netbook. When watching movies on Video player and VLC I get good loud sound on music in the movie but I can barely hear anything when people talk ... background music and sounds are way louder than voices. I know these files work because I watched them before when I still had Windows XP on my netbook.
I am using the Creative X-Fi Surround sound card and a Samsung 5.1 Home Theater system. When I play back MP3s, or system sounds are played, the beginning of the audio is cut off. The nature of the cut-off is that audio fades in instead of just starting. It's only the fraction of a second, but whenever sound is played after a silence (i.e. also in songs that have short silent breaks, like Roxette's "The Look"), the beginning of the audio quickly fades in. So in "The Look", instead of playing
Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na na she's got the look
[%fade in]a na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na na she's got the look
Any ideas what is causing this? I already turned off the suspend option for Pulse audio, but it happens whether I use Pulse or ALSA for output.
I have an Intel DX58SO motherboard with the ALC889 onboard sound, running kubuntu 10.04, and I am not getting analog sound. Strangely, spdif is working great, but I need analog to work, too. I've been in alsamixer, nothing is muted. That's the extent of my troubleshooting knowledge for sound issues.
I originally installed Ubuntu 10.10 in my computer, but as it is an older machine, it was too heavy for it. Threfore, I installed the xubuntu-desktop package available at the Synaptics package manager. From then on, my system began behaving pretty much like a pure Xubuntu 10.10, or at least as I think it should be. I still have the option of selecting between a Xubuntu and an Ubuntu session at start up.
That said, there is a little thing that is annoying me. While the sound in Ubuntu sessions are just fine, it is too quiet in Xubuntu ones. Let me elaborate: I think that the maximum volume is the same, but while Ubuntu's volume curve is a straight born from an arithmetic progression one, Xubuntu's sounds like a curve born from a geometric progression, that is, it is too quiet at lower levels, reaching its maximum very abruptly. I control sound using volume keys, and the computer reaches maximum volume in 20 pressess. While in a quiet place I can reach a nice, audible volume at 3 pressess in Ubuntu, in Xubuntu I only start hearing something at the 10th or 11th press.Is there any way to make Xubuntu's volume control behave like Ubuntu's?
lenny gives me either system sounds, or other sounds like flash plugin sounds like videos, cd playback etc., but not both. to hear videos i have to disable system sounds. as soon as i tick enable software sound mixing (esd) in system -> preferences -> sound -> sounds, videos goes. a message saying it could not open the resource as something else is using it comes up when trying to play a cd. sounds like a threading problem in some program. what should i do to get sounds to be equitably shared by all?
I recently gave XFCE a try, after using Openbox for a long time and I really like it, so that I think I will switch totally to XFCE. All is working fine, except one thing: I really would like to have event sounds.
So I launched the Appearance-Module and checked under the Settings-tab both Enable event sounds and Enable input feedback sounds. Following the tooltip for the event sounds I also installed libcanberra, but I get absolutely no event sound.
I thought, maybe there is a lack of a sound theme, so I also installed freedesktop-sound-theme, but that didn't help. I did already searched with Google and in this forum, but have found nothing that would help me. I would be very happy if anyone can give me an advice what to check or has a link to a tutorial for this sounds.
