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 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'm still searching for a propiertary driver for my netbook (Asus EEE 901 with an Intel GMA950 graphic card). Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
Does someone know how to install a driver with 3D-support? Should I use a driver from[URL].. I had no problems at Karmic, because the driver was found at "Hardware Drivers". Lucid doesn't show me any driver there. Is there any correlation between the big intel-graphic issues and my 'problem'?
I've just switched to 11.4 from 11.3 with zypper dup. Now I have no sound whatsoever. I had a problem getting the sound to work when I started using 11.3, but on 11.4 those exact same settings don't work. When I try "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" I get no errors, but still no sound. I have a Gigabyte P55A-UD4P motherboard with intel core i7 which I have connected to stereo with optical cable. I do not even have pulseaudio installed, as that was just another headache.
I'm having minor, but very annoying, issue in Kubuntu 9.10. Recently I installed the Gnome desktop to see if certain bugs I was experiencing were KDE-centric. I have since uninstalled Gnome (and reconfigured my audio drivers and reinstalled wicd, all of which was made short shrift of by Gnome), but one thing I can't get rid of is this annoying drum click sound in certain applications. All extension buttons in my browser now make the click sound, as well as the TrueCrypt GUI.
I know this is a very minor issue, but I've always configured my operating systems with absolutely no system sounds (only audio and video playback), so I'm finding this particularly distracting. Right now, the only option I have is to mute PCM volume, which also mutes streaming audio and video in my browser...
I'm at my wit's end. I have all sound notifications turned off in system settings (though there were relatively few to begin with in KDE). there's a magic sudo code I can cast to exorcise my computer of mouse click sounds.
Mainboard is a Gigabyte GA-790FXTA-UD5, Audio Chip is shown by alsamixer as HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB, Realtek ALC889. Analog Audio is working fine. Now i tried to use the digital output. And it did not work. AVR and cable are working fine. Software is Ubuntu 11.04.
I'm having trouble connecting to our home wireless network in Kubuntu Lucid. I was hoping someone here might be able to help. I can connect with no problem in Ubuntu and Xubuntu; I'm having difficulty in Kubuntu only. It might just be me being unfamiliar with the KDE network management app, I don't know.
1. I click on the network icon in the system tray, and choose "manage connections". I click on the "wireless" tab, and click "add".
2. I enter the name of our network in the SSID field (our router doesn't broadcast its SSID; however, if I click "scan" the neighbors' wireless networks do appear in the list) under the "wireless" tab, then I go the "wireless security" tab, and choose "WPA/WPA2 - personal" and enter the password. I click OK.
3. Now when I right-click on the network icon and choose "create network connection", the new connection for our network that I just made shows up in the list, but it has an icon showing a pen on paper instead of the broadcasting signal icon that appears next to the neighboring networks. It also says my connection is "insecure", even though I chose WPA and put in the password. (Neighbors' networks do say WPA, WEP,etc.)
4. I select my network connection that I created above, and click connect, and nothing happens. No connection is created. how the KDE network app works; I've used mostly XFCE and GNOME in the past, but I've heard good things about Kubuntu Lucid and really would like to take it for a spin. However, this computer has only a wireless connection, so I really need to get it working.
I have upgraded my Kubuntu Lucid AMD64 desktop with KDE 4.5 using the kubuntu ppa backports. I am impressed with the overall visual and performance improvements. However I am facing the following issues after upgradation -
1. When I execute any application as root user (using kdesudo <app name>) they load with a primitive GUI. I have attached a copy of the dolphin application loaded as root user (kdesudo dolphin). Not sure how to restore the latest GUI for them. I tried running systemsettings as root user and tried to customize the theme little bit. But not much has changed
2. One new short cut for ExpoBlending has comeup in section Graphics. I am unable to execute it, since it has multiple missing dependencies, neither able to uninstall it.
3. I installed kpart-webkit and configured it using keditfiletype utility. Now while browsing certain websites such as facebook(after loading farmville application in facebook), I can see few dummy popup windows. Attached file contains one such screenshot.
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've just completed switching both my laptop and desktop from Ubuntu 10.04 to Kubuntu 10.04, all seems to be working well, except that I can't get my Virgin Mobile HUAWEI E160E wireless broadband modem working. I used to have it working flawlessly in Ubuntu, I've used the smae step as described in this post: [URL] that worked for me with Ubuntu, but the Wireless Broadband tab is greyed out under the manage connections dialog. I'm running the 64-bit version of Kubuntu BTW.
So I've got this old Apple with an nVidia chipset. Don't know much about Apples, but from random searches on google I think it's an imac g5.
Anyway when I install Kubuntu 10.04 it works until I update it, then the video dies. It looks as though the nouveau driver is being killed and nv put back in it's place, anyone have any remedies I might try?
Lucid has been good to be so far, except for the fact that my screen flickers occasionally (I'd say once or twice every 30 minutes) I'm using an ASUS laptop with an INTEL GMA 4500MHD (It's this laptop. I read a bug report about the xserver-xorg-video-intel, but the issue was much more severe and marked as solved before Lucid was released.
1. Sometimes when I try to shutdown my computer the display becomes filled with pixels of different colors as shown in the image (The problem is very random so I was not able to take a photo, I tried to recreate the effect using GIMP). Then the display turns off (Analog power saving mode) But my system never turns off.
2. While working on my computer the display sometimes goes kaput and blinks as in the second image. It stops responding completely I am not even able to go to terminal (Ctrl + Alt + F1). Leaving me with no option but to use the reset button. Causing me to loose all the work in progress.
3. Firefox responds very slowly upon closing it takes 5-6 seconds for the window to close.
PS:- KMS is also disabled in my system. Enabling it didn't improve stability. and here is the output of my videocard (lshw)
Are the 64 bit Lucid disks suitable for Intel i5 processors? The AMD64 part is making me think not.I already have the 32 bit version running very nicely - should I have gone 64 bit though? What are the advantages/ disadvantages, and why does it say not recommended for daily use next to the 64 bit download? As far as I understand you can run 32 bit binaries without problems on a 64 bit install.
I honestly have no clue how this happened, but compiz now refuses to start. I discovered that somehow GLX had been uninstalled and replaced by SWX (the software rasterizer - this gives Brian Paul as the OpenGL/GLX server vendor strings). Reinstalled GLX, currently have Direct Rendering and the proper vendor strings (SGI and Tungsten, I believe).Still nothing. OpenGL seems to be working fine, as Nexuiz runs pretty well.I tried running compiz --replace from the terminal to get any errors, but it just spits out "Falling back to default window manager", without so much as a hex code to tell me why--------Update---------Ran compiz --debug --replace to see if I could get anything else. It gives the following:Quote:taintsauce@the-****ing-fury:~$ compiz --replace --debugcompiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /home/taintsauce/.compiz/plugins/libcore.so : No such file or directorycompiz (core) - Debug: Could not stat() file /usr/lib/c
After a Kubuntu upgrade from Karmic to Lucid on a 32 bit i686 my samba script in /etc/init.d/ was gone. Is that simply a bug or something going wrong during the upgrade, in which case I restore the script from backup, or is there a new way to start/stop/restart... samba in Lucid? Samba is working just fine after the upgrade BTW, both for print and file sharing over a mixed network.
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
Code: cvlc beep.mp3
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.
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]
New to Ubuntu. I've read all I can about the current mic issues with the Lucid 10.04 release. There does not seem to be any specific threads dealing with the GM45 chipset. I've had sound out of speakers on fresh install, and have done every single line addition (individually) suggested with:
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.
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.
