Ubuntu :: Speakers - My Speakers Won't Work

Aug 31, 2010

I have a normal install of Ubuntu 10.04 with KDE, gnome, and xfce. Every time i try to do something sound related on my computer, my speakers won't work. I tried headphones, still wouldn't work. The Ubuntu 10.04 documentation didn't help much, and I'm plugging in the speakers correctly.

Ubuntu :: Speakers Play When Heaadphones Plugged In - Sound Plays Out Of Speakers

Jun 17, 2011

I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my Toshiba Satellite C655 laptop. When I plug my headphones, they sometimes work, they sometimes don't, but that's not the main problem. When they do work, sound also plays out of the speakers. The only solutions I was able to find were for earlier versions, which don't work for 11.04.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Speakers Ok / But External Speakers Not Recognized

Feb 17, 2010

I recently installed Kubuntu 9.04 Jaunty on my buddy's laptop. It's working alright, except when we try to plug the external computer speakers into the sound jack in the front, there is no change; it keeps playing through the onboard speakers. My friend and I are getting pretty frustrated because we use those speakers to watch movies with, and the onboard speakers aren't sufficient. If I need to provide any other info, let me know and I'll do so.

Ubuntu :: No Sound On Line-out Speakers Work

May 19, 2010

I just bought a new Dell Studio 15. It's not such an easy ride with Lucid apparently, the broadcom wireless driver sometimes fails, and there is no sign of any bluetooth on ubuntu.But the main annoyance at the moment is that no sound is coming through the line-out.

When I plug my headphones in, the speakers go silent as they are supposed to do. But I can't hear anything in my headphone. I do have two headphone-line-outs on this laptop, but it's the same effect on both.Does anyone have an idea? I searched the forum, tried installing gnome alsa mixer, but everything seems to be unmuted.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALC272 - Speakers Don't Work At All

Dec 26, 2010

I rebuild ALSA twice, got the latest stable version, installed the one from ubuntu-audio-dev, but nothing. The output from alsa-info.sh can be found here: [URL] I have this Toshiba and the sound device is just completely messed up and partly depends on if I have headphones plugged into the machine when booting it up: Then sometimes everything (Microphone, Headphone, Speakers) works fine. But other times the speakers do not work at all then only the headphones. If I have the headphone not plugged in than in 75% of cases (roughly) the speakers won't go mute when I plug the headphones in.

The microphone(s) is the biggest concern as I need the computer to use Skype. Obviously I would want the jack to work... They sometimes respond when booted, but other times not. They more often work when the microphone jack is plugged in, but fail after a little while, then sometimes they don't work at all. It frustrating, I have tried various models of the ALC272 driver, but none works for this machine.

General :: Getting My Speakers To Work On Macintosh

Apr 19, 2011

I am having issues on playing music in Linux (Ubuntu 10.10). I installed windows and linux on my macintosh computer. windows and linux are not on virtual machines and they are directly installed on my hard drive and have their own disk partitions. When i am on linux, the speakers on my mac does not work with linux. I suspect that the sound driver may not be compatible, but i am not sure. When I stuck in the bootcamp cd into windows the disk took out windows driver called "realtek audio" and replace it with sigmatel audio and/or cirrus audio.Also i was wondering if their was some cd like bootcamp for linux to make sure all the proper drivers are installed so then it works on my macintosh?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Speakers / Earphones To Work With IDJC

Dec 4, 2010

I can listen through my earphones and speakers - problem free, until I start my internet radio with IDJC and JACK control. Within IDJC, it will let me hear the output of the stream - but I can't hear the sound from any other application (Chrome, Movie Player, etc). IDJC works with JACK control. I'm pretty sure it's JACK control that's not letting me hear out of any other application. Any ideas to make it work?

Ubuntu :: Internal Speakers Stopped Working - How To Make It Work

Apr 26, 2011

I've been running Ubuntu on my Dell Studio 1749 laptop since I got it, around 8 months ago.I recently upgraded to Maverick 10.10 64-bit, reformatting and partitioning my hard drive in the process (got rid of windows since I never use it) and it was working perfectly until last Wednesday (22.4.2011). On Wednesday I unplugged my usb headset while in a Skype call to switch to the internal speakers and my computer freaked out, black-screened, and froze. When I rebooted, the internal speakers had stopped working completely, even though the sound works perfectly on both sets of headphones I have.

I've tried most of the fixes that have been presented in other threads and none of them are working, including rebooting the laptop with the headset in. I've tried that with both of my usb headsets, even though I don�t like using the one that it froze on for the exact reason that any time I have audio playing with that headset and it gets unplugged, it black-screens and freezes my laptop. Actually audio doesn�t even have to be playing, sometimes unplugging it even with nothing playing still freezes my laptop. It does it once in a while with my other usb headset, as well, but not every time or anything close to that often.One thread suggested that modifying /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf by appending the following line to the file would work:


options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6

But that did nothing at all. Someone else said that they saved a copy of alsa-base.conf and replaced the whole thing with that line, so I did that, with no change. Then I purged alsamixer using


sudo apt-get purge alsa-base



sudo apt-get purge alsa-utils

Then I rebooted, and reinstalled them, which did not fix the issue. However, it did replace the alsa-base.conf file that I modified which shows me that it actually did purge it. (I was an idiot the first time I tried to purge it and only purged and reinstalled alsa-utils..xD So the file did not get replaced, which was when I realised my mistake) I have NOT modified the new file, although I did copy the contents to a text file in case I need to try that fix again.I should also mention that the speakers do work when first booting up Ubuntu to the log-in screen, both with and without headphones I ran the alsamixer diagnostic at the beginning of all this, here's the link: [URL] And then ran it again after purging and reinstalling alsamixer, here's the new link: [URL] I have tried messing with the settings, disabling the headset, setting the input and output manually to internal speakers while the headset is still plugged in, making sure with GNOME alsa-mixer that the speakers are not muted, rebooting with the headsets in and then unplugging them.

Debian Multimedia :: Getting 4.1 Speakers To Work With Soundblaster Card

Apr 2, 2010

I can only hear sound from my front speakers but not from the rear ones. And everytime I reboot I have no sound and manually have to do 'alsaconf'.For information about what I have done: I have only 'su' to root and put 'alsaconf'.It detected my soundcard and the sound works but only the front ones. As I am new to debian(I have installed debian lenny), I would greatly appreciate any help as to what should I do.On googling around I found that I have to edit some "asound" file.

Fedora Installation :: No Sound From Speakers But Headphones Work

Feb 1, 2011

I'm running FC 14 on an Alienware m15x-R1. It's an older one that they made before Dell bought them out. My problem is that the internal speakers don't work, but if I plug a headset in to the audio jack, it works fine. lspci tells me I have an audio device Intel Corp HD Audio Controller, which may or may not be helpful. I booted it up with an Ubuntu live CD just to make sure it was the hardware, and I get the same results.

Hardware :: Intel HDA Sound Not Coming Out Of Speakers Though Driver And Software Work

Jan 31, 2009

I have a strange problem with my audio on Linux. Some months ago I bought a new laptop (an Asus M51Vseries (M/B version M51Vr)), and now I want to install Linux on it. However, there are some problems. When I first booted up my newly installed Linux distro, Debian Lenny (kernel 2.6.26-1-686), I had sound when I tried to play movies, mp3s, etc. However, after next boot, the sound had disappeared. Nothing came out of the speakers even though everything had worked before. Nothing had changed in the mixers as far as I can tell, either. So I googled a lot and came about pages telling me I should edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base and passing on a model option. Unfortunately it didn't work. I then put off the project a while, and yesterday I tried installing Linux again. Magically, sound worked again, and after rebooting, it had gone. I am at my wit's end.

When I think about it, I find it strange that sound that HAD worked, should stop working, and then start working again by passing a model=... (I tried several) in alsa-base.According to alsamixer (and yes, all channels are at the highest volume level, NOT muted), the chip is a Realtek ALC663. The Alsa version is 1.0.16.I hope you are able to help me. I really want to get rid of Windows, but I won't accept not having sound.
