Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Broken In Natty After Upgrade (Toshiba T135D)?
May 11, 2011
In Maverick, I had sound working through a USB sound card and through my laptop internal speakers. The built-in headphone jack did not work. After upgrade to Natty, only the internal speakers work, so I have no way of playing through external speakers or headphones. My ALSA debug output is here: [URL]..I have been using pavucontrol for mixing and output selection, and nothing is muted. Sound works through internal speakers, built-in analog output, and USB sound card in Windows, so there is no hardware problem.
Getting either working would be fine. I may be failing to understand fundamental things.
I bought a Toshiba T135D-S1324 two days ago, and the only thing I can't get to work is for the internal speakers to automatically mute when headphones are plugged in. (Ubuntu 9.10 for AMD64 by the way.)
I have tried to add "options snd-hda-intel model=laptop probe_mask=1" to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf but that didn't work.
The jack detection box is not available under sound preferences. Alsamixer only shows PCM and Master.
After upgrading my laptop from 10.10 to 11.04 I can no longer connect to my home wi-fi. It was working flawlessly for months before the upgrade. The network manager just keeps spinning and nothing happens.dmesg output just keeps showing this over & over again:
I tried to OSS workaround to get sound running but instead my sound card disappeared totally from the system. I restored ALSA (I think) but my sound card is still missing in action. If I could get some help on how to restore that I think I could figure the rest out. I tried the sound problem sticky but I ran into the part where the poster has no solution as well. Any assistance is greatly appreciated and I'm slowly learning how the terminal works.....pretty much what windows does for you but it's more flexible at the same time. I learned on DOS so it's not totally alien....just different commands.
I also found Realtek drivers for the HL 272 which is my sound card for linux but I can't make heads or tails of the instructions to install.....
I have a toshiba m305d satelite laptop i installed ubuntu karmic 9.10 and evrything seems to be working fine including wireless and ethernet which was not working previously .. but now with alsa my mic was not working and hence i uninstalled alsa and installes oss4 as was directed by other forums .. however with alsa my sound was working in skype but now nothing seems to work .. i am getting error as "problem with audio playback" i am using skype 2.0 as 2.1 was said to be not compatible with oss4 also the sounds in my pdgin im client is not working ..
here is my component information code...
i have tried checking mic using ossrecord but dint get ne output.. i also tried sound recorder which also dint work with both alsa and oss4
now the thing is with oss4 even the speakers are not working for some applications like pdgin and skype which was working with alsa
I've spent the past 2 days attempting to get the sound working on a Toshiba A75 notebook. Here is what i've tried so far: remove/purge alsa and pulse audio then reinstall set up/configure OSS download and compile latest alsa drivers. code...
My questions are: is there anyone using this laptop on Lucid with sound? Can anyone provide a new idea how to make this work if it is compatible hardware.
I recently installed Ubuntu Natty on my Toshiba Satellite A210-139. Everything works fine except the microphone. I can hear a crackling sound also when I record using Sound Recorder, but it's not too bad. The big issue is with skype, where, besides an annoying, loud white noise, the receiver hears me quite intermittently. I tried many things. Firstly, I played around with Alsamixer and Pulseaudio with every possible combination. Didn't work. I also tried what seemed to solve the problem to many users: replacing
Code: load-module module-udev-detect with Code: load-module module-udev-detect tsched=0 in /etc/pulse/default.pa
so i don't know what happened, but all multimedia files are suddenly speed up/and-or with no sound (ubuntu 11.04 with all recent updates, firefox 4, adobe flash-instick etc.)
if i try to play a flash movie on for instance videos it's sped-up with no sound, if i play an mp3 song (i use exaile) the bar is sped up and there's no sound either, if i start an avi movie (vlc) it's not sped up but there's no sound though.
when i log in to the system the logging in jingle is not playing, so basically the sound just got turned off for some reason but according to the soundbar it should be on.
this problem started just recently. i don't know if it has to do with recent updates or that my log in re-started a couple of times after using a kde program (kmess).
I just did an install on a new partition to upgrade my htpc. I'm unable to get any sound over SPDIF working. I do not have a receiver that accepts HDMI so I need to use spdif That said, i was able to test the hdmi portion of the sound with my tv and that appears to be working fine.[URL]Below is just the list of aplay -l
Code: **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: ALC1200 Analog [ALC1200 Analog]
Something went wrong during my upgrade to Natty two weeks ago and I had to do a fresh install. I've been trying to play Wii (using a Dazzle DVC 100) via VLC, which used to work just fine. Please refer to the attached screen print. Now, the video comes out okay, but there is no audio. I've tried playing around with the name of the audio device (hw:1,0 for example), but it still doesn't work.
I've also tried video capture with Lavrec, but it gives me this error: [lavrec] Error initializing Audio: Audio task died. Reason: Error /dev/dsp - No such file or directory
Could this be related to my other problem? I've looked in the /dev folder and, indeed dsp is not there, nor is there a dsp0,1,2, etc. Sound is working fine for everything else, though. I've Googled and tried some suggestions, but nothing has worked for me. BTW, I did an Ubuntu minimal installation, so I might have missed or forgotten to install something. I have installed the gstreamer good, bad and ugly plugins.
So I did the update to Natty and it went pretty smoothly, with one exception. My rig has two sound cards in it: the integrated motherboard sound card (Intel HDA audio) that I don't use, and a Sound Blaster Audigy (the original Audigy 1) that I do use.
This setup has worked fine in Ubuntu for as long as I can remember, but after the upgrade to Natty it appears that GNOME no longer knows that the Audigy is the card that's in use. It insists on routing things like volume changes via gnome-volume-control to the motherboard. I can confirm this by watching the volume levels for each card in alsamixer while modifying them in gnome-volume-control; the levels move appropriately on the integrated card, and stay stuck on the Audigy.
What makes this bizarre is that it's not that the Audigy isn't recognized -- it's shown in the "Hardware" tab of Sound Preferences, and the system plays back audio just fine through the speakers connected to the Audigy. It's just that I can't change the volume on the sound through the panel applet anymore. Normally I would fix something like this by using the Hardware tab to switch from the one card to the other, but in this case when I make that change it doesn't stick -- if I close the Sound Preferences and then open it again, it's right back to being set to the integrated audio.
Maybe this is a PulseAudio issue with older Audigy cards? I have no idea.
I can change the volume with my speakers' volume knob and my keyboard's media keys, I suppose, but I'm so used to be able to change it via gnome-volume-control that not being able to feels bizarre. Has anyone else out there with add-on sound cards installed alongside motherboard audio experienced this?
following chained updates of my music server from 10.04 to 11.04 I no longer have any sound, which is sort of bad for a music server...Primary soundcard in the setup is USB So I tried the command posted in various "no sound" threads
Which reinstalled stuff as expected, except had this error in the output: Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.38-8-generic" Could the error be because of backports?
aplay -l helpfully reports aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found. and the output from wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh can be viewed here: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=cb...54c3f65b70dec7
I'm a newbie, running Natty 11.04 on a Toshiba Satellite L645D laptop. If I boot the computer with headphones or an external speaker connection plugged into the headphone jack, I get no output through it. If I plug the headphones in after boot up, audio comes through fine, but there is no "auto-mute" on the internal speakers. If I restart/reboot after having had headphones plugged in, even if they are unplugged during the reboot, I again get no output through the headphone jack.
I have to actually shut the computer down, then start back up in order to regain the headphone audio.I've looked through previous threads discussing similar issues and tried updating, checking the ALSA settings (and I, like seemingly many other users, have no option to control headphone sensitivity, or whatever it was called). I don't have a lot of time to mess around trying to fix this, so I'm kind of wondering if I can just download another version in which this is not an issue? Maybe the stable release?
I have been using the streaming audio feature in Firefox for years, and have upgraded Ubuntu with each new release. I've never had a problem with streaming from my favorite radio stations until I upgraded to Natty. If I know the IP and use Audacious or another client, I can still stream through them-- but not from my browser any more. Flash-based content works OK too.I have upgraded two computers from 10.10 to Natty (desktop and laptop) and it has happened with both. the desktop is the 64-bit system (AMD), and the laptop runs the 32-bit OS (Intel). We have two other computers still running 10.10, and they're both still OK. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the xine plugin (which seems to do most of the streaming), VLC, and a couple of others. No luck. I don't think I see any gaps between the codecs installed for the 10.10 computers and the ones running Natty.I tried Chrome -- same result.
I'm running 10.10 and sound works great... except for with web browsers. Namely Chrome and firefox.I've tried just about every thread I can find to fix this. pulseaudio is loaded, alsa-oss... flash-nonfree-**** loaded.This really shouldn't be this hard, should it? Hell I've been working with linux since it was distributed on fidonet and have admined unix for 20 years. WTF?
I am running ubuntu on the Tegra2-based Toshiba AC100, flashed to the internal eMMC (instructions: [URL]..I really like this machine. In accordance with the instructions linked above, I also have a bootable SD card system (far slower), where I can go in as chroot for my eMMC-flashed system if needed (depending on what people suggest).
Yesterday evening I tried to dist-upgrade to Natty but it stopped during installation/configuration at python2.7-minimal. This package (or python-minimal (default)) seems to be in conflict with a few other packages (unity and some other mystery packages named "ubuntu" something).
I am now at a half-updated system that spits out lots of errors while trying to load the new desktop (X starts, but basically just a purple background). I will try logging in to an alternative DE (LXDE) this evening when I get back from work.
but I had trouble trying to play an avi file on the bigscreen via my laptop's HDMI output.Although I could play the video in a full size box (with status bars and borders visible), both screens would go black when I double-clicked to go full size. This happened in both MPlayer and VLC as long as the HDMI cable was connected. Audio was fine.It presents as some sort off copyright protection, but I remember being able to watch movies fine in Maverick. Is anyone else having this problem with Natty?
I am using debian squeeze and did an aptitude upgrade yesterday. Today I've found that VLC won't play any video; the files open and the audio plays, but the video is black. The aptitude log is below.
I note that VLC received a security upgrade a few days ago, but my suspicion is that the source of this problem is more likely to be the upgrade of libavcodec52 from version 4:0.5.2.6 -> 5:0.6.1+svn20101128-0.2. I believe this upgrade came from the debian-multimedia stable repo I have enabled.
Does this sound right, and what could I do to fix my VLC playback? This is new territory for me, and I'm slightly surprised that such an upgrade would come from the stable branch of debian-multimedia (although I know this is not an official source).
My sound worked fine for the first few days.. then I noticed the mic wasn't working in skype so I tried messing with it in sound preferences. Now my speakers explode with this horrible distorted noise(semi-recognizable as whatever I'm trying to play) and sometimes freezes when I try to play any sound. Reinstalling just the drivers to avoid a fresh install, according to the stickied thread at the top, did nothing. Attempting to place the settings back to their defaults also does not appease this bloodthirsty beast.
I've been on a rampage through every lead I've found on trying to fix this problem but nothings worked so far.. it seems the problem is that the onboard speakers (Internal Audio; Analog Surround 4.0 Output) hates it's life in an Ubuntu OS too much to continue living. Not sure if the RS880 Audio Device [Radeon HD 4200] output is with it either.
Also heres my.. file report thingy(alsa-info.sh): [URL] The laptop in question: [URL]
For the last 3 release all my hardware have been working like a charm. But after upgrading to Lycid I have problems with skype. I fix the camera issues with the following command
But the sound of my microphone is totally jagged. I have an ICH8 Intel integrated card. I have worked the last 2 years (with an ocasionally glith in the volume) but not having Mic is a real PITAo what can I try to fix it? Please, don't tell me "remove all pulse audio stuff"... It must be another way.
My chrome browser has been broken since the last upgrade. I did (just a regular "apt-get upgrade").
I get this when I try to run the browser from a console :
Code: Select alldarko@paris:~$ google-chrome [3229:3229:0918/103229:ERROR:nss_util.cc(845)] After loading Root Certs, loaded==false: NSS error code: -8018 [3229:3229:0918/103259:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(541)] Failed to send GetTerminationStatus message to zygote [3229:3229:0918/103259:ERROR:zygote_host_impl_linux.cc(541)] Failed to send GetTerminationStatus message to zygote
So to be more specific :
My system is : Code: Select alldarko@paris:~$ uname -a ; cat /etc/debian_version ; cat /etc/issue Linux paris 3.16.0-4-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt11-1+deb8u3 (2015-08-04) i686 GNU/Linux 8.2 Debian GNU/Linux 8 l
I run the Xfce desktop
The problem is the same whether is use google-chrome stable, beta, unstable, or chromium
I am running debian testing, amd64 on my box. In general, I do not experience particular multimedia problems; I can watch & listen to ..... videos without a glitch and even webcasts like [URL] do not pose any problem. However, I experience problems with some (reputable) online radios, for instance when I visit the link [URL] then words are continuously broken by a metallic sound. However, if I open e.g. with totem a simple file such as france_culture_mp3-128k.m3u whose content is given by
then the sound is OK. This is puzzling as this text file once again points to the same radio franceculture! Does anyone have an idea of what is going on? It seems to me that whenever I try to listen to an online radio from within iceweasel, then I have sound problems, but I have installed many plugins and I do not have problems with video webcasts that of course also include sound.
I'm trying to upgrade a headless terminal server like box from Etch to Lenny. Users log in to this box using a GoGlobal client and use applications such as OpenOffice and Iceweasel. Because of the ended support for Etch we want to upgrade this machine to Debian Lenny as soon as possible and in order to save time we decided to dist-upgrade instead of installing a new machine. I've done this upgrade in a test environment and everything is working as expected except for OpenOffice, which seems broken after the upgrade:
The problem seems to be caused by the anti aliasing features of OpenOffice and disabling these features in the options panel (Extra -> Options -> OpenOffice.org View -> Screen font anti aliasing) fixes the UI somewhat:
However, as can be seen in the last screenshot, disabling anti aliasing makes the whole thing look terrible. I've searches the net for solutions such as this one but so far I've not been able to fix this. Is there anyone who can point me towards what has changed in the way fonts are rendered since Lenny and what might cause this breakage for OpenOffice? Other applications such as Iceweasel work perfectly and look better then before.
