New build to F12. Sound was fine in F11. Now, massive distortion. I have tried every possible permutation of settings. With the main volume control in the top taskbar, there are two positions of level setting where the audio drops to a normal level and sounds OK but any application changing the level or starting to use the Pulseaudio changes the level and its loud and massively distorted again.
In the Pulseaudio manager->sink->alsaoutput.pci-0000-00-11.5.analog-stereo -> properties-> show volume meter, the audio is always maxed out in level. I have tried everything, its unworkable right now. Its possible to start alsamixer from terminal and adjust settings for good audio but any future change reverts to distortion. All changes in Pulseaudio Dev mgr or vol control etc change the audio as they should but do not affect the problem.
To start off, I am about 3 days into my new ubuntu operating system. I am a complete newbie, but i have picked up alot in the last couple days. My sound was previously working, but the microphone was glitching when using skype. After running a bunch of different commands in terminal that were posted on forums from all over the internet, I rebooted my computer to find no sound. I have searched the forums again and tried many different command lines in terminal to no avail. My system setup is found here: [URL]
I've got 9.04 and 9.10 both installed on the same machine. The /home directory is on a separate partition, so both OSes use the same /home.I can't get Compiz to work at all in 9.10, even though it's been perfectly fine in 9.04. Is there a backport of some sort that i should install?The fixes I've found all point to editing the xorg.conf file, but of course, Karmic doesn't have an xorg.conf file.I've tried reinstalling the Compiz files, reinstalled the open-source video drivers, installed/uninstalled fglrx drivers a few times, rebooted dozens of times.
I've just installed Karmic 9.10 to a new 500GB sata in a friends PC and it boots and runs fine; internet and everything just works. Just reinstalled XP-SP3 to old 80GB pata drive in same PC, it boots ok, but has no sound, poor graphics and network is limited to 1394 - no ethernet.
I built this PC about 3 years ago and it had been running XP with SP2 then SP3 installed, and everything worked fine. So over the past day I have installed XP-SP3 (slipstreamed disc) in it 3 times now, then went back and tried XP-SP2 (earlier slipstreamed disc) twice with same result - no ethernet, poor graphics, no sound?
But it all works fine in Karmic?
I ran Karmic's disk utilities (Palimsest) on the old 80GB and it tested fine, no problems at all.
PC comprises Gigabyte M55plus-S3G m/board, AMD 3800+ 2.4Ghz CPU, 1 GB RAM and a 64MB NVidia graphics card (can't recall model)
Is it possible MS built 'crippleware' in to XP, or could there be a hardware problem that Karmic didn't detect (doubt it)
Karmic is going to be the main OS now, so I don't think the loss of XP is a problem, but friend still wanted to be able to boot XP, even though XP is installed in Virtualbox in Karmic (I did this by importing a previously saved XP 'appliance').
I don't get any sound from my left speaker. With my headphones plugged in though I get sound in both speakers. I've upgraded my Kernel to .36. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I'm on an MSI A7200 which is a great laptop but apparently a very rare one. There's like no info on it at all on the internet.
I have an issue where my laptop speakers work just fine, but when I plug in headphones, I get no noise. I'm using openSUSE 11.4.I found others with the same issue, but this guy's solution looks like he might be using some different version and his solution doesn't work (can't find the file he edited).
I am using Ubuntu 9.10. My sound works fine unless I have headphones plugged in. I've tried 2 sets of headphones, and it doesn't work with either set, so it's not the headphones. The volume is not muted (it's at 100%) for the headphones either in alsamixer. How can I diagnose and fix this?

I just installed Fedora 12 and after downloading and running the Java Sound Demo I get exceptions. If I run just a vanilla Java program that plays a .wav file it runs silently with no sound and no exceptions.
Every other app seems to play sound. I also took some advice from this thread in the Ubuntu forums which almost seemed to work. (Installing aoss got rid of the initial exceptions in the sound demo but I still hear nothing when I play.) I'm getting frustrated by the individual hoops I have to go through to eek sound out of my speakers when running Java apps on Linux platforms!

I am trying to set up cherokee on my vps that I have bought. Now I am able to get it installed and even was able to get to the to the cherokee admin manager so everything seems to be working fine even was able to start the server. What I am having issues with is the main page instead of getting the cherokee greeting page I get IT Works!
I have a sony laptop VGN FS315M, i recently installed Ubuntu 11.04, and i really love the unity interface.
But i have a few issues as well:
1. Vaio FS315M has Nvidia graphics card, ubuntu suggested a video card driver which i installed but didn't work well so i switched to the another one and it worked generally well but that too has problems like if my computer goes to sleep upon closure of lid, it cannot wake up again. it shows only a white screen and only way to get out of it is to restart the computer by manually pressing start button.
2. Sound card works generally ok but mic doesn't work on startup but when i click sound preferences and mic selection from analog microphone to another one and then again to analog microphone, it works but not the first time. Sound output is low compared to windows.
3. Arabic/persian fonts generally are not shown well in firefox?
4. Computer seems to be slow in unity compared to 10.10, may be because of high demand on graphics or the graphics card is not optimized?
5. Skype won't start automatically and there's no option in this skype to do so and also it doesn't save password?
6 . Ubuntu doesn't connect to net connection unless i connect manually, i want it to connect automatically to internet
7. This issue is not related directly to ubuntu. My system is a dual boot system with windows xp as well. Before windows xp, i tried windows 7 beta and then later removed it but it left its bootloader at startup. since my CDROM drive is also out of order so i tweaked BIOS by installing PLOP to install ubuntu. Now i have 3 startup menus if i want to run windows xp, one for ubuntu, then windows 7 with option for earlier version, when i select earlier version then windows xp or PLOP installer. so its a mess. I want PLOP to appear at the beginning (so that i can have boot option from USB available), then ubuntu and if i select windows it should go directly to xp not thru others.
Basically i set up a webserver using this tutorial but installed ubuntu 10.10 [URL]
im using charter cable and it has that ubee router. when i tried to set up the static ip the closest thing i saw was an option called static ip lease in which input my servers local address and mac address and checked enable. then i applied dmz to my servers local ip. after that i typed in my public ip and to my excitement it worked. so i began creating the website. i dont know if all that is relevant but just in case i didnt want to leave anything out. this is my first time with linux and servers and ive only been at it for about 5 days. anyways i made the website and everything was going good then i needed to reboot the server so i did. after reboot i logged into the server then went back to the other room where i worked on the server using putty from a pc and flashfxp and tried to navigate to the website in firefox. it didnt work. if i try to go to the website address from a computer on my network i get a problem loading page error from firefox and if im on a different network it shows my router page to login and configure. i dont understand how it was working then after reboot it all of a sudden doesnt.
o also i installed gnump3 today before reboot if that is important
I have a new Dell XPS 9100 with 9GB ram and ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024MB GDDR5. I installed a dual boot with Windows 7 and Ubuntu 64bit. Sound worked fine withthe Windows 7, but no sound with Ubuntu. Did a reinstall with just Ubuntu 64 bit (wiping out the Windows 7). No sound.I first did:
System -> Administration->System Testing (testing only for sound). I get: 0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
This has been bugging me for quite a long time. I need to have a pptp connection to my university. I have tried to locate the error, but this has been a real trouble.
A little bit of history: My girlfriend had a laptop with M$ vista on it with a working PPTP connection. I had a laptop with Ubuntu, with which I couldn't get the PPTP working.
When my laptop crashed, I bought a new one on which I run a dual boot XP SP3 and Ubuntu. I also own a desktop (Dual M$ Win 7 / Ubuntu standard Karmic) and my girfriend also upgraded to Win 7.
Currently, the XP version is the only one on which I can get a connection. Both Ubuntu and the Win 7's give me a GRE proc 47 not received error. I know our router (a DAVOLINK DV2020) is notorious for not sending through GRE proc 47, but this either shouldn't be the case or it shouldn't matter, since I can make a perfect connection through the XP OS.
This is quite a handicap, since we both study at the university for which we require working VPN PPTP connections.
On my Acer netbook (AOA-150-1635) the wireless works fine with WinXP, Ubuntu, and used to work with Suse 11.1. I replaced the Suse 11.1 with a clean network install of Suse 11.2. I couldn't get the wireless to work and did another network install using the wireless. When the install was completed I could not get the wireless to work with Suse 11.2. When I run the "collectNWData.sh" it shows--
!!! CND0120E: Network card wlan0 has no IP address wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
I looked up error CD0120E and changed the network devices setup to "traditional". The wireless "scan" picked up the routers and I added the encryption keys. Still no joy. I ran "collectNWData.sh" again and it said it is better to use the Network Manager.
!!! CND0180I: The system can't ping external IP address 18.104.22.168 !!! CND0150E: There might be a problem with the default gateway definition 10.1.1.1 on interface eth0
Going back to Yast, Network Devices, I set Network Manager. The result is that it is back to the beginning with "collectNWData.sh" giving the original error.
Though I had solved this but I was premature. Here are the details. When I use HDMI to connect to my lcd TV it works fine in Windows7. (I have dual partitions W7/Ubuntu),but when I boot into Ubuntu and use HDMI, nothing happens.

also when I open the Gnome Alsa Mixer, under the HDMI tab, there is just a blank screen. I believe I have the latest Alsa releases.
I have a working LDAP-server (I belive!!) I want my laptops to authenticate against the server, when they logon. That works fine as long as the network is present. But I also want the users to be able to log on, when the network is down. When I go to a terminal (without network) I can su to another LDAP-user.I can login via graphical login-screen with the network attached, but not when it is disconnected.
In a terminal id john gives me information about the user john.
My conf. files looks like this: /etc/ldap.conf host 172.16.0.138:389 ldap_version 3 bind_policy soft
My Windows machine can ping Ubuntu by name, but Ubuntu can only ping the Windows machine by using it's IP address. This was working fine in both directions until I purged Samba. After purging Samba, I couldn't ping in either direction unless I used the IP address. I did some reading and found that Samba provides NetBIOS functionality that allows the machines to resolve host names without a DNS. Since I'm not running a local DNS, I decided to reinstall Samba. Unfortunately, I've not been able to restore it to full working condition. I don't want to use hosts files as all the IP addresses are assigned automatically by DHCP. I want to be able to access the Windows machine by name.
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed for some time now and I don't boot my Win7 machine in weeks!I love how solid, robust it is... and also how good it looks.Love the features like Ubuntu One (use it a lot!) and the Software Center. I'm 95% converted and I would be 100% if it weren't for 2 issues:
1 - The machine won't shutdown. Rebooting works fine but shutdown it just hangs... Kinda sucks having to press the Power Off button every time...
2 - I'm on a laptop but it doesn't recognize my battery. All I get is a "electric ray" on the panel. Even if I remove AC power it still does the same... No charging information, nothing... I tried
Code: sudo modprobe pmu_battery on the terminal but is says that the module could not be found.
Everything else works terrific (better than Windows!) with this two exceptions...
I have to report that I am unhappy with the idea of taking away Gnome. I use a tablet, thus I use CellWriter. CellWriter works fine on 11.04 in Gnome but not in Unity. Additionally, CellWriter uses a system tray icon, which doesn't exist in Unity. I don't like my destop experience in Unity. It doesn't agree with the way I interact with my computer.We have Ubuntu, Kubuntu, and Xubuntu. I would like to request that we fork a Unity distro and keep a Gnome desktop for users to choose.

But nothing is jumping out at me in the output of dmesg. I also don't see any additional system or kernel logs in /var/log. I'll google some more on that front. One other fun fact: nvidia-settings fails to run in openSUSE. Unless I launch it under gdb. Then it starts up and runs as expected. (And the second screen ain't there, as expected.) Here's (what I think are) the relevant items: Xorg.0.log - Pastebin.com dmesg - Pastebin.com xorg.conf - Pastebin.com Additional output available upon request.
Gateway desktop running Ubuntu LL 10.04(64 bit) with Asus/ViXS Combo-210E NTSC/ATSC TV Tuner card: link to card... [URL] Ubuntu lists the card when I do lshw in a terminal but it shows as 'unclaimed'. Is that important? Also what software is neccessary to watch tv? The card works fine in Windows7
am using transimission to download torrents but when it start downloading i just can't browse anymore since my connection slows down, but when i stop downloading from transimission my connection just works fine.
i'm running 10.04 x64, with the latest versions of google chrome, chromium, opera, epiphany, firefox, and swiftfox.
strangely, flashplayer works fine in all of them except swiftfox, where it presents a garbled, unclickable video window (tested in videos).
all my other ff addons and plugins seem to work ok in swiftfox, so i assumed that swiftfox is just reading and using everything in ~/.mozilla, including flash. but perhaps not. anyone have any idea why ff's flashplayer doesn't work in swiftfox?
I have an Acer Aspire One AOA110 (SSD version that came w/ Linpus Lite) that my brother gave to me several months back when it stopped working. I've been trying various ways to revive it or make it useable, but haven't had any luck so I figure it's time to look to the community for ideas. I have already updated the BIOS to the latest (v3310) version, so I don't think it's the common issue these netbooks have where they don't even post. I'm kind of thinking the GPU died halfway or something. If I could just get it to work in a command line only mode, I'd be happy.
The netbook will post fine, but when I try to boot into Linux, the screen will go blank part way through the boot process. I don't ever remember hearing sound afterwards so I don't know if just the screen is blank or if the computer is locked up as well. I have tried several distros, but all of them seem to run into the same issue. Some with text based installers (Debian) get all the way through the install, but won't get all the way through the boot process. I'm only trying to get to a command line, not into X or anything graphical. Arch Linux also uses a text based installer, but I couldn't even get into the installer before the screen goes blank. I've tried changing some of the kernel options such as nomodeset, vesa and framebuffers options, but didn't have much luck with them either. I've also tried some older versions of Ubuntu (I think back to either 8.04 or 8.10) and tried the text installs, but I can't remember if I couldn't get into the installer or if I just couldn't boot, I want to say I couldn't even install. Mind you it's not random, it's always at the same point for a particular distro.
So the other small twist to this all is that FreeDOS works fine, besides not being able to get the sound card or network card working. I can play games, set different resolutions in ZSNES, etc. This seems a little odd to me, but I'm hoping it makes perfect sense to someone reading this.
I want to be able to run Linux with a command line interface, but I can't find the right distro/settings/whatever that it stays in the video mode (vesa?/framebuffer only?/I'm not even sure what to search for) where I keep the display and get to a command line. Any thoughts on what's happening when the screen goes blank or what I can do to get Linux working on here again?
I have migrated over to Fedora 11and system works fine *except* I cannot install *any* packages from an RPMhere is the exact error :The name org.freedesktop.PackageKit was not provided by any .service files
