since using 10.04 I have a big problem with my usb headset (freetalk everyman)
1. Problem: I cannot regulate the volume of the phones (output) anymore with gnome-volume-control. By default the volume is set to 100% which is way too loud. When I set it under 100% there is no sound at all. Values over 100% work.
2. Problem: The X server is freezing iregulary when I connect the headset and disconnect it, Magic SysRq works. I checked Xorg.0.log and found out that it recognizes the usb headset as keyboard:
I normally run KDE, but installed GNOME as well on my netbook (running openSUSE 11.2) to try out. However, I noticed there is no longer any volume control applet. The GNOME panel control is labeled 'deprecated', and the volue Fn keys, which work fine in KDE, do not work at all. I tried launching the PulseAudio Volume Control app, but it gives me a "Connection Failed: Connection Refused error". I still have sound, and I can adjust the volumes in alsamixer, but is rather inconvinient. What is the "right way" to adjust volumes in 11.2's GNOME?
How do i change the channel gnome-volume-control controls? I want it to control pcm but it controls master front. There used to be a setting right in the sound preferences but i think it disappeared with the 9.10 upgrade or at least i can not find it anymore. I've looked on the at gnome alsa mixer while changing the volume and master front gets controlled while pcm is always set to max. The problem with this is that master front does almost nothing to change the actual volume.
If i control pcm with the alsa mixer the volume range is fine. I've found a manual for gnome-volume-control on [URL].en and the pic there actually looks like i remember it looking. But i can not get to that screen. What i have looks completely different. Its a window with the tabs Sound Effects | Hardware | Input | Output | Applications. But there is no sight of any channel settings and the only slider there does the same as the applet one.
The volume control in the Gnome panel system tray has disappeared from my wife's Ubuntu 10.04 system with the master volume set to zero.I was able to restore sound via System->Preferences->Sound master volume, but this is not particularly convienent. How do I restore the panel volume control? (the speaker icon on the panel, between the Network arrows and Chat/Mail setup icons).
Is there a way to default volume to 100% in the terminal with gnome-volume-control-applet or any other program? I am setting up a dedicated Zsnes machine which boots into Fluxbox but the volume is muted by default. There isn't a man page for gnome-volume-control-applet.
When I log into Gnome the volume is set to 100%, but Fluxbox is always set to mute.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit on an old DFI KT600AL motherboard based system using the onboard VIA 3058 AC97 audio (because it supports front panel audio connections and none of the add-in PCI soundcards I have do). I have an old Gateway/STB TVPCI TV tuner card (mainly wanted the FM radio part to work) hooked up to the cd audio connector on the motherboard because the digital audio over the pci bus apparently isn't supported for this card (neither is the onboard analog mixer on the tv tuner card, I had to hack a CD-ROM audio cable and solder it to the audio outputs of the tv tuner module on the TV tuner card). When I use the master channel as the master channel (selected in Kmix) then as one would expect it affects the output volume of all other audio playing on the system except that which is being handled by the PCM channel. On Windows the PCM channel was also affected by the "Volume Control" slider such that ALL volume levels were reduced when moving the slider. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how to make it work like this on Kubuntu.
First off I should warn you that I (like many users of older hardware that is not properly supported under PulseAudio) have uninstalled PulseAudio (because it's garbage) and am using Alsa to manage my audio hardware. I would think that there would be some way to do this using the 'amixer' application to add the PCM channel as a component of the 'Master' channel so that when the volume is turned down using the 'Master' channel control it will affect the PCM channel too (at least the output to the speaker jack, not necessarily the capture or mix volume though), but I'm not really any good at doing things from a terminal window and the options for the amixer command kind of confused me.
I am struggling with a problem with the volume control... when i try to adjust the volume with the sliding bar i can not do it. If i put the scrollbar to the 0 position, it is muted. when i move it to anywhere else, i get the full volume. From other programs like vlc, i can adjust the volume with no problem.
My volume control seems to have only three settings: TOO LOUD, VERY QUIET, OFF. If I adjust the Master volume slider from the Panel, only about the right 1/8th has any effect and if I slide it past about the 95% mark, I get no sound at all. At the far-right end of the volume control, I get total volume. It's basically like the slider only has any impact in the top 5% of it's space. Below 95% of the slide, there is zero volume.
It's so drastic, that one tap down of the volume button on my keyboard kills the sound (because it nudges the slider past that 95% mark). This happens in the Audio settings, etc., system-wide. If I adjust the volume for an individual app from within the app (MPlayer, for example) it behaves exactly as expected (that is, app volume works smoothly, it's just master volume that has this issue). I have run through most of the "obvious" things-- I'm wondering if I broke something by installing the extra KDE packages to get Amarok to work.
On accident I removed the volume control from the top panel, and when I go back to the panel and click add panel there is no volume control there. Also I use uTorrent in win and the utorrent logo use to go into the panel, but now it loads in a separate window label wine system tray. I have searched around and have not found a fix for this.
I would like to know how i get the button that let you change the volume that use to be available to add to the panel in some older versions of Ubuntu. If theres something else out there that can do the same and is added to the panel then please do tell.
Volume up, volume down and mute keys on the keyboard don't control the volume any longer.They worked before. Hitting the keys brings up a progress bar widget with the volume level unchangeable, set at 0% (which is not accurate at all).It looks like the key mappings or key bindings are working, but there is a disconnect with actual functionality. The volume cannot be changed or muted anymore from the keyboard.
This worked just fine in KDE on Fedora 11 before upgrading KDE components yesterday with Yumex. I am now using KDE 4.3.2 I don't think that it's a coincidence that it stopped working after doing an update. I updated the kernel and nVidia drivers too, but this problem exists when I went back and tested with the previous kernel, so I don't suspect the kernel upgrade. No info in Xorg.conf about the keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing?
Sound works just fine. I can listen to whatever source I like. This is not a problem with the sound drivers as far as I can tell.I just want to be able to control the volume with the keys on my Logitech Illuminated Keyboard, model Y-UY95. Is anyone else experiencing this?I can adjust the volume with Kmix 3.5 or GNOME Volume Control V2.1
I use alsa, and I don't have a volume control applet on my Gnome Panel.When I right click and select "add to panel", there is nothing that has to do with "sound", "audio" or "volume" in the list, and the "Indicator Applet" or "Indicator Applet Session" things have no volume controls, or properties that would let you enable any sort of volume control.
How can I get a volume control in Ubuntu, so I don't have to run aumix in a terminal or something? I've got the thing working now. But does anyone know why the new, fancy "Indicator Applet" volume control doesn't appear? The Gnome Volume Control Applet isn't as nicely featured, although it actually works.
I've been using Linux since Redhat 5, it's beyond me why these sorts of problems are still around. Someone should just put a damn "Volume Control" element in the list of things to add to the panel, even if it doesn't work, perhaps showing an error message.
My challenge today is a broken sound mixer in gnome. Yesterday I run 'yum update' and it installed about 200 updates. This morning I rebooted, when double-clicking the 'speaker' icon in the top right corner of my gnome and I got a "crash".
(I have to go to mixer and enable 'front speakers' before I get any sound - thats something else i'd like to fix one day) Here is what bug-buddy has to say:
Any advice would be great - i think I should start by reinstalling the gnome mixer, but not sure which 'yum' that is contained in. I did do some reading about rolling back, but I read that is by default disabled!! Arh! why! only when you broke something you realise you need to turn it on.... o well hey ho.
installed F12 and noticed that the volume control applet is now all Pulseaudio rubbish, not Alsa like gmixer used to be. So now I don't seem to be able to mute my speakers when I'm using my headset, which in F10 I could do by just muting LFE/Center.Note I don't want the speakers to be disabled when I have the headphones plugged in (like Jack does) I just want to be able to control volume of the mixer channels individually - as sometimes I'll be playing music through the speakers and will receive a Skype call and want to mute the music, but also don't want the Skype sound coming out of the speakers - just the headphones.
I've tried setting up 4.1+input, 5.1+input, 4.0+input etc; but for some reason, even though the PulseAudio mixer thing has 5 individual sliders, they do nothing as they "jump" back to 100% when you slide them - even with the channels unlocked. gmixer and alsamixer do the job, but pulseaudio is the applet and only seems to control the master volume, not the individual channels. Any ideas - or perhaps a way to make gnome-volume-control revert back to actually being gmixer?
On my Fedora 14 system, the gnome-volume-control-applet manipulates the Front channel, rather than Master (or PCM), which means I continually have to use alsamixer in terminal to adjust the audio volume in the other channels.In earlier version of Gnome (pre-pulseaudio?), this could be configured in the volume control preferences, but no more.Anyone know how I can fix this?My audio adapter is pretty standard Intel stuff. lspci: ode:00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller
Debian Squeeze 6.0.0 on a Thinkpad T43, sound volume is not synchronized between the laptop volume buttons and GNOME's Volume Applet. So if I turn the volume all the way down with the physical buttons, the volume applet may still indicate 75%.I did not have this problem in Debian Lenny. Pressing the volume buttons used to show a volume bar on the screen, as did pressing the mute button.
Ubuntu 10.10 x64. Got a second monitor and enabled Xinerama. It asked me to restart, I did. I opened ATI Catalyst Control Center after the restart and saw the control panel window open for about half a second before suddenly finding myself at the login screen.
ATI Catalyst Control Center has always seemed to work fine up until I enabled Xinerama. I tried removing the ATI driver, restarting, re-enabling it, restarting, and ATI Catalyst Control Center worked fine again. But, as soon as I enabled Xinerama it went back to logging me out whenever I tried to open the control center. I've tried from the GUI menu as well as the terminal using 'gksudo amdcccle', same result every time.
The dual monitor functionality seems fine, but I need to get back into the control center to adjust the colors. I do a lot of photo editing, and the adjustments in the control center really is a great tool to let me get the colors how I'd like.
I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and my volume control disappeared from the panel. I have reinstalled pulseaudio but it had not re-appeared. I can't find it in the Add Panel list nor can I find it in the Pulseaudio volume control application as an option.
I've just upgraded to kUbuntu 10.04. I've been using Gnome for a few years now, and felt the need to try KDE again. I've managed to get my NVidia 8200 with HDMI audio working, but have one last annoying issue.
I can't control volume with my RF remote or keyboard.
More to the point, the keys control the sliders in kMix, but to no effect on the sound. This is likely because I need to use Pulseaudio to get my HDMI working. The sliders in Pulse volume control, control the volume nicely. Either I need a way to force kmix to talk to pulse, or a way to re-map these keys to control pulse.
how to set at least my headphone/lineout socket precisely to -15dB at boot up? If I knew how to make amixer commands permanent, I wouldn't be re-raising the issue
The Gnome GUI volume control is fine in normal circumstances but to set it accurately requires a bit too much fiddling, IMO - now if someone were to adjust the programming so a dB readout accompanies slider movement, rather than as a pop-up after adjusting the slider, 'twould be more ergonomic, IMO.
3. save changes to tvtime.xml and start tvtime in a terminal window and see if there is any error messages. The Russian Ubuntu board recommended using "amixer -c default" , but I had to change mine to "amixer -c 0" (the number of my sound card) to get things to work. You might have to do the same...
Not sure how/when/why it happened the volume control app on my control panel is missing. I tried adding it by doing a "Add to Panel" but the volume control app says it is now deprecated.Is there any other way to change the volume quickly instead of having to open pulseaudio volume control
Is there any way, native or within download, of changing audio volume on a per-application basis? I vaguely remember doing this in the vista basic that was installed on this when I got it a couple of years ago, but was removed after a couple of months due to instability. I'd like music streaming thru VLC louder relative to games being played thru Adobe Flash in Chrome (which are at 100% of possible, 100% of the time, no options other than mute).
My internal mic on sony vaio was not working on karmic 64bit. After I followed these instructions [URL] (updated alsa to 1.0.22) I got the microphone working, but now mplayer does not play any sound (although it plays files), as it tries to use pulse by default. However when run with -ao alsa, it works fine.
Other than that, the volume control has not effect on the sound, so every time I need to control it using alsamix.
When I remove pulseaudio, everything seems to be working, except gnome-volume-control and gnome-volume-control-applet do not start, and the keyboard volume controls dont work.
Here are the sound cards I have:
Code: progre55@progre55:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC262 Analog [ALC262 Analog] Subdevices: 0/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Alright, at first, the volume control went missing from the indicator applet, but then re-adding it to the panel didn't do anything but add a mail/chat applet. So I tried to reset the indicator applet settings with this code...
And now all that happens when I add the indicator applet to the panel is that the text: "No indicators" pops up where the mail/chat applet was before. Is there a way to get the volume applet back into the panel?
I've just removed PulseAudio and installed Envy24Control in order to make sound working with my M-Audio Delta 1010LT, it's working fine now, but the only problem is that the master volume control disappeared, and the buttons on my keyboard (volume + and volume -) are not working (with PulseAudio they were fine).
