I just installed Maverick, and everythings working great except sound. I only have 2 channels working front left and right, no middle, no rear, no bass. In sound preferences i can only choose between different stereo options.
I'm using Xubuntu Natty at the moment, on an Acer Aspire 5739G. Figured I would go to Realtek's site and get the most recent soundcard driver, since the built-in subwoofer has never worked on Linux for me.
I used the automatic install script, then when it tried to probe for other devices, suddenly I had no sound.
I'm currently getting
Code: korin@corrosion:~$ aplay -l aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found...
I tried reinstalling the ALSA driver, but to no avail. I now have no sound, and no idea a) why this failed, and b)
Has anyone successfully installed the driver for this sound card? I'm interested in obtaining the 5.1 sound through coaxial S/PDIF but I am far from getting there. The manufacturer has a driver for linux but I cannot build it because of a deprecated package in 9.10 release (alsa-utils). I tried to force an install of the package but I ran into other errors. Right now I sometimes get sound (not 5.1) but it's far from being reliable. At this moment I get no sound through the coaxial output without even restarting the machine so I have no idea what happened.
PS: My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-M78SM-S2H with a GeForce 8200 chipset.
I am using 10.04 64-bit on a GA-770TA-UD3 motherboard with onboard Realtek ALC888 audio chip. I'm having scratchy sound with games like World of goo and Penumbra. I solved the problem for Penumbra by selecting OSS option instead of ALSA from the settings menu but I'dont have that option in World of goo (and many other games).I have no problem with video or audio files. The board is [URL]..
Well i will write this down one more time i hope you don't delete it again To enable surround sound with ALC888 on Intel DG31PR for all versions of ubuntu inluding Lucid.(this works on other distros with alsa as well) gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Find this line (if there is no such line (or the file is empty) it doesn't matter just add the next line and save it)(note that on older Ubuntu versions the file is named "alsa-base" as far as i remember): # Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
Add this line after the #Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index0: options snd_hda_intel model=3stack-6ch-dig Then use this command to edit pukeaudio: gksu gedit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
Find this line: ; default-sample-channels = 2 Change it to (make sure to remove the ; in front of it): default-sample-channels = 6
Well I installed Ubuntu 10.10 64Bit along side Windows 7, and I've been unable to get any sounds working, apart from the log on sound. So I tried installing some drivers, and now there is no sound at all, and no sound devices show up in System-Preferences-Sound-hardware
I'm using the on board HD Audio (ALC 889A) and using the optical Audio out for 5.1 Surround sound.
I've tried just using the Stereo ( Green Jack ) out, and still nothing. The suggestions on the on the Ubuntu site, and the following post didn't seem to work either.
I Can't find a great deal of posts with the Realtek HD audio.
I was running Ubuntu 9.04 and just upgraded to 9.10 recently. I see many others are having problems with their sound. I too do not have sound. I did get sound running briefly with an Alsa update, but it was muffled. In trying many other fixes, I again have no sound and can not resolve it. I am thinking of burning a new cd and doing a fresh install and starting over.
My lap top is an MSI GT725 US model with an HD4850 mobility graphics card. I dual boot between Vista 32 bit and Ubuntu.
Has anyone else had any luck getting the Realtek ATI sound working in 9.10?
i have MB:Gigabyte 770t USB and Cpu Phenom II x2 555 BE My sound card didnt work and i have no sound at alll. only hardware that reconized as sound output in my sound setting is 5700 series HDMI which blong to my VGA.
I have an MSI S420 with a realtek alc883 onboard. I upgraded from ubutu 8.04 to 10.4 recently, The sound worked in 8.04 although the mic did't work and the same thing in 8.10 (i went through all upgrades) it stopped working at all in 9.04 onwards.
If i did Lspci -v it did say the name of my card, ( I unmuted all in alsamixer and got the codecs but even a test soud won't work) I also dowloaded a driver from Realtek itself, that didn't work.
Then I edited alsabace.conf some more. I tried every one that could possily be it at [URL] including all that said MSI.
I then tried Lordraidens comprehensive sound guide from step 1 to step 5, I used the module-assistant and istalled a driver that was called "hda-realtek-codec" or so. It was the only appropriate one on the list.
I also run into someoe with thesame problem. [URL]
i think ill give up and use the 8.10 that is still on a other partition
I can't get any sound to come out of my laptop through Kubuntu. Please help me by giving me step by step instructions, because I'm a total noob at such things. I've went through the Comprehensive guide as well -to no avail. to sum it up:
Sound works with Jaunty Jackal. Does not work with Lucid Lynx. It appears that Lucid Lynx will only acknowledge that I have a modem as a sound card. I just want to add my RealTek ALC880 driver so the sound will work. I've made sure that I have audio privileges, I made sure that nothing is muted using alsamixer. I've been looking at threads and documentation for four days just to fix the sound issue and so I can be prepared in case this 'feature' ends up being continued in Maverick Meerkat and when I upgrade I can use M.M. with minimal fuss.
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, but so far I've been unable to get sound to work. I know my sound card is Realtek, because I've had to install the HD Audio Codec Driver when I was on Windows. I downloaded the driver for Linux and it is currently sitting in my home folder. When I tried to Code:sudo ./installthe driver, it failed for the following reason:
Code: WARNING!!! The mixer channels for the ALSA driver are muted by default!!! **************************************************************************
In Window XP, Seven and Vista, to hear good sound, it use Realtek application. Realtek give sound effect such as sound in hall. In accordance with that, I intrigued with sound effect from Realtek application and how I want install sound effect such as Realtek application in Linux? I now using Ubuntu 9.10
I've been trying to get my surround sound(5.1) to work for the past couple of of days, followed a number of guides, but nothing seems to get it working at all. I'm connecting the speakers using 3 analogue audio cables, I have tested and they work fine under Windows. When I go into the Sound options in Ubuntu I don't see a 5.1 profile listed under the Hardware tab, only stereo(and that works fine).
The sound controller is a Realtek ALC892 built-in to my mobo(Gigabyte P55A-UD3).
Here is some info I've seen requested in other threads, I'm running 10.10 RC, but I can assure you it doesn't work under earlier versions.
Code: Linux Yurippe 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Sun Sep 19 20:32:27 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux Code: **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
I've had a snap, crackle, pop coming from my speakers since I put this machine together, even now, with no reason for any sound to be coming from the speakers. Additionally, the crackling only becomes worse when I play ANY audio regardless of player or source, however the sound does just drop for a few seconds and then back and then off again when there is SUPPOSED to be audio. I understand not working at all, but "kinda" working is more confusing.
I'm running slack64 with the with an updated kernel from current, even though the rest of the machine is stock 13_64. The problem was the same with the original 220.127.116.11 kernel.
I recently installed realtek sound driver software in my system, but after installing it,the speakers are not working.... I'm using fedora 13(x86_64). i just want to make my system speak,like before.... how to make my speakers work ?
i did a recent install of slackware 13.1 in my toshiba nb200 netbook and everything is running good, except the sound. i can listen to only one audio stream from one software. if videos (firefox) is playing a video, audacious won't play, and vice-versa. i did some research but i didn't find a solution for this problem.
I was just using the mic and watched it stop working suddenly. I was in the middle of a skype test call when the graphical mixer level died down to zero in the middle of the call. When the test call was played back, the first part sounded fine then the sound got lower until it became inaudible. Since then I can't get any sound from my mic in skype.
Also, the audio input level graphically shown in Sound Preferences shows no fluctuations in sound as it used to before. The input device is enabled. I tried using Sound Recorder to record some sound clips and that worked fine. So the mic is working but Sound Preferences and Skype seem to have the mic level really low. I'm not sure what else to think considering it was working perfectly a few minutes ago. I've tried restarting, but that didn't fix it either.
After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.
I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.
I bought a Diamond Xtreme Sound 5.1 sound card because I had read online that this card was a good choice with Linux and came with universal driver software. I installed the hardware correctly (as it works with WinXP) but I'm not able to get it working with Ubuntu.
I've recently built a new PC with an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard with Realteck ALC1200 integrated audio. I'm connecting my Logitech z-5300 to it.
I'm not getting any audio despite connecting everything properly.
I'm not sure if it is because there is no stock drivers for it, or if there is some other issue. I'm not sure what the source of my problem is, or how to fix it. I'm a noob when it comes to audio, so any help is greatly appreciated!
After having installed ubuntu 11.04 my laptop's wireless device (realtek rtl8192se on a packard bell laptop) disappears on ubuntu 11.04. Before, with ubuntu 10.10, I had no problems. Now, when I start ubuntu 11.04, sometimes the wireless card work, but most of times it doesn't: the wireless led is off, and with the lspci command I got no line about wireless card. If I restart the laptop and I start win7, the wireless card doesn't work there too! only after many reboots and/or shutdowns wireless card appears again.
I have a white label netbook with the Realtek RT8187SE Wireless card on PCIe. It is not detecting wireless networks consistently. When I am even 1 meter from the wireless router, I get no networks in range, but sometimes I pick up networks that are more than 20 meters from me. I can not connect, even if it is unsecure.
WiFi Radar does not detect the card. If I run a system check on the PCI bus I get the following: 02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8187SE Wireless LAN Controller (rev 22) Subsystem: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8187SE Wireless LAN Controller Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
I recently installed ubuntu on my computer and when i put in my network wireless usb adapter (Realtek RTL8191SU) it isn't recognize, and the internet doesn't work. When I do lsusb, it comes up with Realtek Corperation however. And also the light on it doesn't flash either.
trying to get my little Encore USB wireless adapter to work on several flavors of Linux (Ubuntu 10,10, ElementOS, Xubuntu, and Puppy), I emailed tech support at Realtek. I asked where is the Linux driver for this product? I did this because there were no Linux drivers posted on their site and everyone here (and on Newegg) is jumping though hoops trying to get a working wireless connection with the Encore and similar dongles that use the RT8187b chipset. I didn't expect an answer, but felt better after my little vent. I get an email from Realtek with a driver. Realtek needs to promote Jerry -- a beacon of customer service in the age of the "get lost" school of customer relations. I have attached the driver below. Caveat: I have not yet compiled the driver, so I don't know much more about it than I've said already, although the archive appears to contain the source code.
I've had this problem ever since I've installed this ethernet card in the PC (after the 'effin integrated one blew off for some reason), I wasn't ever able to make the networking work again. Every time I try to trigger the PPPoE connection (DSL), the PPP configurator keeps on looking for the concentrator, reaches over 100% and stayed like that for 1 hour. Here's the terminal log of everything that I've tried:
After compiling the Realtek drivers from their page (ver 8.024), installing the module, blacklisting r8169 and updating the initramfs, I still can't get the network card working.The card is listed in lshw as RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller.lsmod shows only r8168.dmesg keeps spitting once and again, every second or so the following:
Code: [ 1293.452274] r8168: eth0: link up [ 1294.449785] r8168: eth0: link down
