Ubuntu Multimedia :: Speaker Mute When Headphones Plugged In
Sep 23, 2010
I'm just installed 10.04 on a new Gateway DX4300. The integrated sound card is a Realtek AC1200. Sound works great, however, I'd like the rear input to mute when I plugin my headphones in the front input. Where can I configure this? Here's some basic information:
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 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 just installed Debian Squeeze on my Acer Aspire 7736ZG and I also got some problems with the Realtek ALC888 onboard-sound. Normally, the speakers should mute themselves when headphones are plugged in, but they don't. Instead I hear sound on both, speakers and headphones.
I already installed pulseaudio, but that didn't help. On Ubuntu Maverick (11.01?) I had the problems that the sound didn't play at all until I installed an alsa-driver which was modified by one of the ubuntu developers. Is there any fix like this for Debian Squeeze, too?
Since I bought my computer and I installed Linux on it, I had this problem... Back in the day I never Found a REAL Solution and finally my "solution" (in Fedora) was installing "pavucontrol" to choose the Devices when I needed to Switch.
Via the Pulse Audio Volume Control I was able to Mute speakers or Headphones at my will, even if I had both connected, this thing worked from F12 to F14 very well...
(The same problem is present in every distro I tried and sometimes it was solved the same way in other distros)
But Now, I'm in F15 And my magic workout doesn't work anymore... it doesn't matter wich device I choose as output, the PC simply don't mute one or another and my headphones and speakers sound at the same time.
The Sound card is a HDA INTEL with the Realtek ALC662 rev1 Chip, as I said before, I'm using Fedora 15 KDE (64 Bit version) and I'm running ALSA v 1.0.23 with pulseaudio 0.9.22-5
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.
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'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 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'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'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.
After I listened to the audio program on the Google Chrome, I downloaded the MP3 to listen again offline. When I clicked on the downloaded MP3 file and using Totem to hear on my computer, there is no sound. I checked the sound preference, there is NO MUTE.
I restarted computer, clicked on the MP3 file with Totem, I can hear. I can hear the sound on ...... Which process should I restart without reboot computer. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. Here is the output after execute command "sudo lshw -c sound"
I found a curious issue with my new Dell XPS 8100. On my old Inspiron, as soon as I plugged in the headphones they muted the speakers. That's how it should be, because you listen to headphones so you don't blast your music all over the room. But now, on the 8100, the speakers still blast even if the headphones are plugged in. Headphones Also work, so they're getting a clear signal. It's just simultaneously being played in the rear speakers too.
I'm having some trouble configuring my the sound on my laptop. I'm using Alsa. Playing sound is no problem, but when I plug my Koss headphones into the audio jack the laptop speakers continue playing and sound also comes out of my headphones. When I go to alsamixer from cli the sound card only shows 1 master channel so I can't mute the internal laptop speakers.
I'm currently running Ubuntu Netbook Remix on my HP Mini 110-3000 and I get no speaker output but the sound works when I plug my headphones in. I downloaded Alsamixer and played with the setting but nothing helped so now I turn to you guys.
I have installed Linux Mint 7 and Windows XP on my laptop Sony Vaio VGN-CR260A. In Windows my external speakers, built-in speakers and headphones all work well. how to connect external speakers to work in Linux Mint. But the laptop's built-in speakers and my headphones don't work in Linux.
The system is squeeze amd64 and a toshiba tc655 notebook. Some relevant info: $ lspci | grep Audio 00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) (rev 40) $ lsmod | grep ^snd_hda_intel snd_hda_intel 20019 1 $ head -n 1 /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 Codec: Conexant ID 5069
My first idea was to try some different model names when loading the snd_hda_intel module, but after checking the alsa documentation unfortunately i didn't found this particular codec in it. Then after a few hours of lmgtfy.com sessions came the enlightenment. I found something interesting which actually turned out to fix this problem. Here it is: [URL].

I currently have a dell studio xps 16.. I'm new to Linux and can not seem to figure out how to force my laptop to play from its on board speakers. The laptop seems to believe there is headphone attached to the port constantly.. I figured this out when I use to run windows.. and my skype calls always activated the speakers.. so i know theres nothing wrong with the speakers (well i hope not). Is there any possible way to ignore the sound ports and force play from the speakers?
