I have installed 9.10 and do not have any sound at all. i did do a list of playback devices with aplay-l and it did not list anything. I looked in sound props and didn't find one either. I have had other versions of Ubuntu and had no problems. the machine I've loaded is a Toshiba laptop.
I recently updated my computer Using 9.10 and I updated on the 14th. Before the update my sound was working great. No problems, but afterwards my sound is completely gone and under hardware when I click the sound option on the speaker icon I get nothing listed under hardware.
I am using the HP DV2810 US notebook PC. With this being listed as the audio device.
I will also list the updates from my synaptic history. I'm having to use Win7 . And i only wanted that for the few games that one run well in wine.
Ubuntu seems to see my onboard audio card but I can't select it in the Sound options as my output. In Alsamixer I can adjust settings and have turned on SPIDIF. It's listed when I run the lspci command as
Code: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller So what is the problem?
After cheering the Ubuntu Developers team on the great work they did with hardware recognition, I was suddenly stunned by the silence from my USB speakers this afternoon. Although previously correctly recognized and fully functional, after installing several non- audio updates, the sound from my USB speakers ceased.Moreover, this pair of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers aren't even listed on the Sound menu (System > Preferences > Sound) although lsusb lists them correctly. I have an embedded sound adapter to which no speakers are connected. My PC runs on Ubuntu 10.04. What should I do to get the sound through my USB speakers?
i just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 the netbook distro. at the desktop view there is a list of about 10 buttons/menus listed on the left hand side, is there anyway to control what buttons/menus are listed and which icons are listed under each of them? having a netbook i would like to remove and unclutter the desktop view as much as possible but i dont want to remove those apps i still want to be able to open those apps if i want to even if by removing those icons and menus/buttons makes it a pain.
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
I have a HP 8510w which I attached to a sony tv via hdmi. picture is great but no sound. checked and in sound preferences, hdmi is not listed as a possible output device for sound. searched the net but couldnt find a solution. here some info:
Code: root@gre-HP8510w:/home/gre# uname -a Linux gre-HP8510w 2.6.35-28-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 14:39:03 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
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.
I'm trying to use this thread to set my laptop's resolution to 640x480. To do this, I need to use the addmode command which expects me to list an OUTPUT. What OUTPUT do I list? The "xrandr -q" command doesn't list any outputs.Here is the result of me typing "xrandr -q":
Code: Screen 0: minimum 800 x 600, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
I did some searching, but haven't found a good solution to this problem I'm having. While there are a lot of issues with syncing between my desktop and netbook (we'll get to them another time), I am really trying to get two folders from my desktop to sync to Ubuntu One. I followed the reinstall steps here a few times and it has almost fixed the problem.
My last issue is that my .mozilla folder won't sync at all. If I right click on it in Nautilus, I get a greyed out "stop syncing with Ubuntu One." I can't stop it and can't start it. If I do u1sdtool --list-folders, then this folder isn't shown. I've tried disconnecting, reconnecting, and a lot in between.My question is, is there a config file or something like that where maybe this .mozilla folder is still set up that I can just delete? Clearly, it thinks it's set up when it isn't and I'm not sure if there's somewhere on the filesystem that can be checked or cleared. One thing I did notice when I was going through the instructions above is that I don't have a .share folder and thus no /local/ubuntuone under that.
For some reason, my CD/DVD drive is not visible in Nautilus. I I can't see it either as a top-level item in Tree or Places views or in File System > /media. There is a /media/cdrom entry, but nothing in it, even with a DVD in the drive. When I type "sudo blkid," there is no entry for the DVD drive. It is physically connected and I can read from it when I dual-boot into Windows XP; just can't find it in Ubuntu
1: In my grub menu Windows 7 is listed, I don't know why. Win7 was installed on this computer before,but I formatted the HDD before I did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.10. How to remove it?
2: When I boot I don't get a boot image, only a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. Not a big deal, but I would like to have a normal boot image. Any ideas how to fix it? I tried googling but I only find old threads. My laptop is a Acer Aspire 7735Z
Graphic card is ATI Radeon HD 4570. BTW; I got no other problems what so ever. Everything works great really.
How do i run applications that i have installed, that are not listed in the application menu? ive installed many programs with no problem-- then, i couple that i have installed from the package manager state that they have installed successfully, yet i have no idea where to find them in any menus.
I recently installed ubuntu 9.10 and a day later updated with all the suggested security and recommended updates. Now I notice that in my Grub there are two different kernel versions listed. Are they both necessary? Can I / should I get rid of the older one, and if so, how?
I ask because after all these updates I notice my computer runs much slower, so I don't want it overloaded with unnecessary software.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on a Asus P5KPL-VM mainboard. However the installation doesn't recognize my partitions. If I just boot Ubuntu the partitions are recognized with GParted and by just mounting them and browsing in file explorer. I'm using a SATA disk. I've tried boot option pci=nommconf irqpoll as found in this thread [URL] with no success.
and (recovery mode) for each of the above, along with the mem test and WinXP.Is there any reason I need to list all these variants of Ubuntu? If not, can I simply edit them from the GRUB config file or must I do something else to actually uninstall them?
I was trying to install some Windows applications in Wine/PlayOnLinux. The result was not very useful for what I wanted and I removed all the application including wine and Playonlinux completely from my computer (9.10 64bit).But I was not really able to completely clean up what I did because when I right click on any files and use "OPEN WITH", I got a LONG list of application with many of them are uninstalled and duplicated.
KDE partition manager reports /dev/sda3 is currently type "unknown".I have tried reformatting this partition as linux swap, it says successfully done, but both Kde partition manager and gparted still immedietly report this partition as "unknown" again.
I have windows installed in c drive and there are 3 other partitions namely e,d,f.I booted kubuntu/ubuntu live cd.The installer doesnt show any partitions.This is my windows:- http://imagebin.ca/view/Uj-KB26v.html
This is at kubuntu at installer step:- (Same is the case with ubuntu)http://imagebin.ca/view/wZBYBV.html
I'm trying to make the changes listed in post #5 here to my Inspiron 8000: There's no xorg.conf in Xubuntu 10.04. But I figured out how to create one, and I edited it as suggested. But there's no menu.lst in Xubuntu 10.04 either. That is, the file called "menu.lst" is located in
and it has no "defoptions" line. So how can I make the poster's suggested changes (i.e., do something functionally equivalent, assuming that's possible) to my newer system?
The title says it all really. I run Empathy, have used it for a while with both Google-chat and MSN protocols. I've been using it for a few months now and suddenly my MSN contacts have all disappeared.
People are able to contact me via MSN, and when their message window pops up I am able to respond. It says they are offline however.
I have tried listing all offline contacts but they still do not appear in the list.
I have tried uninstalling (including config files) and reinstalling but this wasn't successful either. When I reinstalled it still had details of my accounts so clearly the cofig files were not removed properly.
When I first started to install Ubuntu to my system, I got an error that told me Ubuntu was not successfully installed, so I restarted my computer and tried again. That time it works, and I'm thoroughly enjoying the OS. I noticed that when I start up my computer and I have the OS boot list, Ubuntu and Ubuntu safe mode are listed twice. How do I remove the 2nd one, and is it still installed on my other partition even though it said failed?
I have a problem with my built-in microphone in ubuntu 10.04, its not listed in mixers like other notebooks that have anologue microphone 1 / 2, I have only Analogue microphone (that works only with external mic), analogue line-in and analogue input. Also I updated Alsa drivers to 1.0.23, but nothing changed.why my built-in microphone is not listed by mixer, is not view at all?

I am running the latest version available to download. I remember having all those menus in lucid. for a better difference comparison see the menus in the ubuntu tweak homepage [URL]..how can I get these option back. here is the error I get when I run Ubuntu Tweak from terminal
what exactly is SSH Agent as listed in Startup Applications? And can I safely disable it? I've read around a bit and get the impression is has to do with others connecting to my machine/network which is not an issue for me as I'm the only user, but I'm not clear.
