Ubuntu Multimedia :: Trouble Getting Toshiba Laptop Audio Working Properly
Apr 23, 2010
So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)
I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).
Capitols v and m not working properly! Toshiba laptop. So far I'm v happy with Ubuntu, works really well! However, I have a madening problem: when typing I cannot use the right hand Shift key with either or if I do, the v looks like $V, and the capitol m ends up giving me a pulldown menu. I assume this is not common to Ubuntu, but maybe it is?
Running OpenSuse 11.2 from live dvd. When it starts up, the screen gets filled with vertical green and black lines, with about a 1 inch square in the middle that moves as the cursor. Nothing else is visible.I've tried each of the video options, with the same result. Is there any solution to this?
One of the big problems I'm having is with the Network Adapter. It won't work with Ubuntu or any Ubuntu based distros. Backtrack 4 won't even start for me (there's a problem with the ACPI, and I'm not sure how to turn it off on Backtrack). Is there any distribution that I won't have to mess with the Kernels too much (I tried Gentoo, but that was a bit over my head)
I have a Toshiba Satellite A660 laptop with Ubuntu 10.04. I am sure that the internal microphone works because when I reboot into Windows it works fine. It does not work in Ubuntu instead. I tried three things:
1) Action: I checked all the volumes, made sure that the microphone is not muted and selected the proper device as "Analog Stereo Duplex". Result: no improvements.
2) Action: I installed PulseAudio to better manage the volumes. Result: no improvements.
3) Action: in the Terminal, I executed the line " sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf " and then added the line " options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba " at the bottom of the page that opened. I saved, closed and rebooted. Result: no improvements.
I executed in the Terminal the command " wget [URL]. The link to where data were uploaded is [URL].
I've this issue where my audio on the laptop which is toshiba satelite p100 doesn't work after i installed fedora 12. I installed vlc media player but still can't get audio working!! For general info my audio driver is: Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 02)
I have a Toshiba Satellite P100-ST9212.reviously it had Windows XP installed and everything worked. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 10.04 and the installation went smoothly (video, wireless, usb, etc) and I did all the suggested updates. However there is no audio being emitted. All visual and BIOS indications are that the audio should be enabled and working. I have version 4.20 of the BIOSI looked at this forum before submitting this and found general steps to test for.The following steps all succeeded
aplay -l lspci -v sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel
The next steps discuss getting fresh ALSA drivers from kernel but this implies that it once worked on a previous Ubuntu install which is not true in my case. So rather than chasing down this potential wild goose I thought I would post this specificestion and see if anyone has seen and better yet knows how to fix this.
i just installed ubuntu yesterday, first time trying linux, and i like it a lot. The only problem i'm having is that some screens move really slow on the browser, like if it still needs a video/graphic drive to be installed. For the sound i was trying to play some mp3s, and i downloaded all the drives online like it asked me to and now when it plays sometimes it's normal and sometimes it sounds weird, and sometimes it lags. Sorry if that's a noob question, but i was wondering if there's and easy solution to that.
I have been searching the web for a solution to a couple of problemsm having with hardware, I am Unable to get the fan or wireless working on my Toshiba U505 S2950 Laptop. I am new to using OpenSuse but I have used Ubuntu and other distros. I have not been able to solve these issues yet and I have tried several things that I have found on various forums
I am currently using Fedora 11 KDE as my primary operating system at work, but i am having a little bit of troubles getting an audio player to work properly. I am trying to play music off of a separate primary FAT32 file system (which is my shared drive amongst all my operating systems), but when i attempt to load the files via JuK, i receive this error: cannot find demultiplexer plugin for MRL.
I have been playing around with other players as well, and it seems like the only other player which will actually load up the media on this separate partition is Banshee, but doesn't seem to want to play it.
Off and on for some time now I've been using a Toshiba x205-s9359 laptop with (11.4/KDE4.6) during the day as a general purpose laptop using the onboard LCD and in the evenings to run XBMC to play movies on a TV using an HDMI cable (no cable TV on our little island & Satellite TV is poor in the rainy season).
The video card is an NVidia GeForce 8700M GT with NVidia's proprietary driver v. 275.09.07 (installed the "hard way").
Code: ~> aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Now the Audio/Video both go to the TV via HDMI if it's connected prior to boot, if not the laptop works normally.
If you try this with XBMC don't forget to go to set the XBMC settings to "HDMI" as needed.
I've been struggling to get my sound to work properly in my HP dv7 laptop in Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit.
If I follow the instructions here [URL] then I can get my microphone to work.
My speakers worked fine right out of the box, but the headphone jack does not. When I follow the instructions here [URL] and install the alsa backports then my headphone jack works properly, but when I shutdown my computer I get a loud crackling/popping sound. Uninstalling the alsa backports stops the crackling, but then the headphone jack doesn't function.
I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 onto a Toshiba L30-10W. The built-in speakers work and the headphone jack work, but I can't get the microphone jack to work. I've tried all of the ALSA options (e.g.- options snd-hda-intel model=laptop), but none of them work.
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.
I have just installed 11.4 64bit and duly followed the sticky guide for getting the required multimedia files installed. I find I have a problem with playing audio cd's the only program which will play an audio cd is Kaffeine but it does not play properly - it plays a few bars then silence, plays a few bars then silence and I can find no way of getting it to play without interruption. There are no sound problems with Kaffene when using it to play digital tv or dvd films. I have tried KsCD, Amarok, Mplayer, SMPlayer, and GNOME MPlayer none of which can I get to play a CD. With Amarok there does not appear to be a setting to play a CD as soon as it is put in the drive it would appear that you have to generate a playlist first, I can show the list of tunes on the CD but that's a far as it goes they will not add to a playlist or play.
Have just found the player Clementine which apparently is based on Amarok. Although not providing a direct play facility I was able to load the cd to the playlist then play the tunes. This may be a clue to my problems in that I noticed that it had to mount the player first. Is there a setting for auto mounting?Ideally I would like to put an audio cd in my player and have it play automatically without me having to do anything. Is this facility available in 11.4 and if so which program do I need to install?
I've got a Sager laptop that I'm tring to get audio working under Centos 5.5 64 bit. (It does work with the Win 7 boot). I followed FAQ #4 and did not find my Vendor:Device ID pairing on the Device ID page. Here's what I tried so far...

I was given a Samsung SMB 2330 (TFT) monitor for Christmas. It is pretty nice and nice and big. Here is the problem: when I connect it to my laptop (Dell XPS M1530 with nVidia GeForce 8600M) I can use the Nvidia Settings Manager to view and use both screens, but on the Samsung screen there are lighter colored blurry lines that race up and down. You don't see this so much on lighter windows, but any darker color shows them clearly. This is a constant whether I set the refresh rate on "auto" or 60 kH (which is what the manufacturer says it should be).I can't for the life of me figure out how to get rid of this problem. I am fair to middling on my Linux experience, but this is the first time I have wrestled with dual monitors and I'd really appreciate any pointers The screen is great, but the flicker is distracting to say the least.
I've just installed Ubuntu desktop 10.10 on a Fujitsu Amilo laptop but it does not see any wireless network. It recognizes the wireless card but I don't know how to activate it or whether the drivers are already installed..
I just upgraded to 9.10 (Karmic Koala) on a Dell laptop. Now when I close the laptop lid to suspend and then open it to resume, the audio disappears; have to reboot to get the audio back. I remember having this problem a while ago back on Hardy Heron and finding a kludge to fix it - a line inserted in a shell script that gets invoked on resume
got a new laptop (well, it's 2nd hand) but it's a laptop which is the model up from mine i use suse on already. i have a HP compaq 6720s, and the new one is a HPS 6735s. i've downloaded and burned the 11.4 iso as an image but it just won't load. thought it was maybe corrupt but it works on my laptop which is already running suse. checked in the BIOS and it doesn't seem to mention boot from dvd drive, though it does say cd drive (but it's definitely a dvd drive).
is it possible to install from a usb pen drive? if so, how? fat32 won't take it, as it's too big a file, and will just putting the .iso file on there mean it'll work? what file system should i use? ntfs, ext3/4?
I'm having trouble with the keyboard on the Packard Bell EasyNote R4. I'm using the standard xorg driver that gets configured by the Debian Lenny installer and the problem is that the keys sometimes generate weird keycodes or something, causing unwanted behaviour of the window manager (XFCE 4.4) such as creating a new terminal window or shading windows. Could the keyboard be faulty or does someone know of a driver that would work better with this model?
I can't get the flash plug-in to work properly. I am running Ubuntu 9.10 x64, which I think might be the issue. It seems to be able to run flash games and videos etc. but it won't let me interact with it. So if I want to pause the video, I can't or if it doesn't automatically start, I can't watch it. With games, it runs, but I can't click on it at all.
