Ubuntu :: System Beep Won't Stop

Jun 16, 2010

I have a HP Laptop with Ubuntu Hardy installed. The system beep makes rapid clicking sound at login window that slowly dissipate and clicking that, so far I can only fix by rebooting, when I play music, reboot after hibernating, and when waking up from suspend. I've turned the system beep off in System/Preferences/Sound but it doesn't do anything.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Re-enable System Beep

Feb 24, 2010

I like the system beep because I can tell checkgmail to beep when an email comes, that way my speakers don't have to be on.Anyways, I did a fresh install of Karmic the other day. Something is being weird with me when I try to re-enable the beep. Karmic blacklisted pcspkr in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf . Here's what happens:I leave "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep", and it beeps. Good.

Then I comment out "blacklist pcspkr" in blacklist.conf and restart. I do "beep". Nothing. I do "sudo modprobe pcspkr" and then "beep". Nothing. I do "lsmod | grep pcspkr". It's listed there as it should be. I check with "sudo grep pcspkr /var/log/dmesg" and find no errors.

General :: System Beep On Shutdown?

Aug 19, 2009

after installing linux mint 7, I have been getting one beep on shutdown, a google search on this came back as a ram problem...but then i ran across a bunch of posts on ubuntu forums about one beep on shutdown, with an older version of ubuntu, grep does return some paramter errors, but in the mint bug report page those are listed as : benign ignore. it doen't bother me in the least, as long as it isn't a warning of impending hardware failure.

Ubuntu :: Can I Make Internal System Speaker Beep For A Calendar Alarm

Jul 7, 2011

I live in a crowded area so I have to use headphones almost all of the time. I just leave them plugged in so when an alarm goes off from Thunderbird or Evolution, I can't hear it. Is there a way to get some use out of my internal system speaker and have a reliable calendar-event-reminder and alarm? I'm talking about the one that will beep from inside the computer even if you have headphones plugged in.

Debian Multimedia :: System Beep Doesnt Work Anymore?

Nov 21, 2010

I have a problem which is a great inconvenience to me. I want to say that I've been searching for the answer for a week and couldn't find anything but problems similar to mine which were unresolved.I used to have debian lenny, but one day i decided to reinstall my operating system and upgraded to sid, so I have a fresh install of debian sid with gnome.
The system beep no longer works on gnome.

What I mean, when i move to terminal(like ctrl+alt+f1) it works great, it also works when i type 'beep' in gnome-terminal. but it doesnt make a sound when i e.g. press ctrl+G, when i am being called on irssi, when i press backspace in gnome-terminal. These things used to work in Lenny, and I really need them (especially this hiliting in irssi). I would go back to Lenny if i didnt need some software that is not present for that version of debian. The pcspkr module is loaded

Ubuntu :: Can Get The System Beep And The "master Sounds"?

Jul 24, 2010

My sound was working fine until 2 days ago, but now it just doesn't. I can't play any songs, but I can get the system beep and the "master sounds" (if you run alsamixer it's the first column that I'm talking about). It seems that my sound card is recognized. I followed quite a few instruction I found online, but nothing seems to work. A couple more details:- If I go to System -> Preferences -> Sound, in the Input tab there is no device for my sound input.

- If I type "sudo aplay -l" in the terminal, I get the following:
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1

Ubuntu :: USB Insertion Hangs System / Stop It To Do So?

Dec 19, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10, 64-bit on an HP 8740w. Sometimes (I don't have the frequency yet, but it has happened a half-dozen times in the past couple of weeks) when I insert a USB storage device the system hangs, requiring a power-cycle. I have been careful to either eject or "safely remove" every USB device, but it still happens. I believe it only happens when I remove a device and later re-insert it, but I don't have enough data points to be sure.

Most of the time, I'm running VirtualBox, but I haven't captured the USB device in a VM.

First question - how can I go about figuring out what might be going wrong? Once it happens, my options are extremely limited (power switch). When this happened one time I left the system for 30+ minutes, and it did not recover.

Of course, when I wanted to see it, I did 10 insertions/removals without a hang.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Stop Gnome-system-monitor?

Sep 26, 2010

since a few days (maybe one week and after an automatic upgrade), I could see a strange behavior of gnome-system-monitor. After a boot, everything is normal. But if I log-out, and then log-in again, the problem begins. Impossible to close the gnome-system-monitor window (by clicking on the window upper-right close button). I have to terminate the process. And this process takes about 50% of CPU. In the same time, a dbus-deamon process takes the other 50%. When I terminate gnome-system-monitor process, the CPU use drops down to 6%.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Causing System Audio To Stop?

Apr 28, 2010

I am using ubuntu 9.10, but I also noticed this with 9.04 on a different laptop. Sometimes when I am using skype, for no reason and after no particular event the audio for everything in the system except for the skype video will just quit, and sometimes the sound doesn't even work for the video either. Buttons don't make their sounds any more and I can't play music or hear audio on flash videos. By can't play music, its weird because the music player (amarok) will just scroll through my entire playlist really fast like it can't play any of the songs.

To solve the problem, I have to shut down skype and firefox, but I'm not sure whether I can just shut one of them down without having to shut down the other. My audio settings in skype are all set to pulse and it is adjusting the mixer levels automatically. This problem has persisted across two laptops and two versions of ubuntu (9.04 32 bit and 9.10 64 bit), so I think it's about time I finally asked how to fix it.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Stop Drive And Read Only File System

Oct 19, 2010

Every time when I right click the USB drive icon and select "Safely remove drive" I always get this error message

FAILED: No such file or directory
even though the icon does disappear from the desk top. I have been ignoring it since the USB drive seems working fine.Now I have a more serious problem. When I tried to copy files onto the USB drive it says "read only file system" and doesn't let me. I tried unplug and plug the USB key but that doesn't help.

Ubuntu :: Pam_unix Stop Booting The Auto Login System?

Feb 21, 2011

I already have two other threads open for a dysfunctional system. Thread 1: Boot hangs at logon sound - no video signal - appears drive is still working [URL]..Thread 2: Where are boot log files and how I can see those? [URL]...Basically both of those are for not able to complete the boot (hanging up in the middle of booting) in Karmic. I had Karmic since it came out but suddenly about two weeks ago just stopped booting. Except for the battery and resetting BIOS, I had checked all the hardware - and all appear to be okay. Following a tip from x1a4, I started looking into logs (admittedly not knowing exactly what I am looking for) and I ran into auth.log. Following is the code. The highlighted part is confusing (to me) and I am wondering if this may cause to stop booting (or completing the boot process) since I was using auto logon. I do not know if there is anything else (logs) you may need, please advise and I will provide those.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gnome Mplayer Freezes System / Stop It To Do So?

Jul 12, 2011

Lubuntu 11.04 on laptop (PIII ATI Rage Mobility). Playing a WMV or MPEG file, system freezes when playback ends. I have not tried any other formats.

I looked at mplayer Preferences

In the Player tab, "Video Output" was blank - I set it to "x11"

This corrected the freeze problem, at least the first time that I tried it. However, it did not seem to persist through multiple plays of the MPEG file, whether or not accompanied by an mplayer quit and rerun or a reboot, even though I did not change the parameters. I tried setting vo=x11 in the etc/mplayer/config file, but that did not help. It is sporadic. It will work a few times with the MPEG file, then hang, for no apparent reason. One thing it does seem to do consistently is hang on the WMV file, regardless of the vo setting, and on both files, when vo is not specified (what I started with). This is a time-consuming task, with a reboot on every failure, and I have run out of ideas on what to try next. When it hangs on the MPEG file I noticed that the elapsed time ends up at 20 sec, even though the video total time is 16 sec. When it doesn't hang, the elpased time goes to 20 sec, then returns to 16 sec.

Debian :: System Logs Itself Out While Unattended / Stop It To Do So?

Jul 23, 2011

Well it turns out my system has logged out more then once on its own. I had the system updated and upgraded from 7-3-11 and it did this about once a week. On 7-18-11 I did a full update and upgrade and it logged out a few times in a couple of hours. It does it while I am away and the system is in screen saver mode. I used my partition clone and restored the system back to 7-3-11. Has any one else ever had such an issue?
