Debian Multimedia :: No Sound Through Headphones With Skype

Jan 15, 2011

I've installed Skype on my Debian Lenny AMD64 system using method describe in [URL] . I also installed pulseaudio using aptitude, but not sure that this required.

I can sign in to Skyp, call out to my local phone number; phone rings. But I have no sound through my Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB headset and no sound is heard on the phone.

If I click on Applications/sound & video/pulseaudio volume control, I get:

Connection failed: Connection refused

1) Am I missing a configuration step? If so what do I need to do where?

2) If not configuration, is there another issue that needs to be resolved? What? Where?

3) Why do I see Connection refused when I clike on pulseaudio volume control?

Note: I tried to listen to npr, but no sound there either.

Debian Multimedia :: Headphones - No Sound Is Recorded By The Speech Recognition Utility

Mar 4, 2011

My wife is taking an online language course that requires Windows in order to record and playback speech (for pronunciation training). I decided the easiest thing to do would be to clone a VM I use on my machine for tasks that can only be accomplished in a Windows environment. I did so, and successfully installed the speech recognition utility on the Windows guest VM. Unfortunately, although the microphone works just fine--I can hear my voice in the headphones--no sound is recorded by the speech recognition utility. Just to be clear, the microphone is fully functional under GNU/Linux. My wife has been using Skype without any issues at all. That is, Skype used to work. Somewhere during the course of trying to resolve the voice recording problem I managed to break Skype. I have no idea how.

It's a long story, but I'll try to be as brief as possible. When I could not get the VM solution to work properly, I thought maybe the problem was with the VM, so I checked the original copy on my own machine. No problem there. Windows sees and hears the microphone just fine (using the testing utility under sound configuration). So how is it possible that the microphone doesn't work in the cloned VM image? Before you stop me, allow me to note that both machines have identical motherboards, and both are configured to use the onboard sound. Sound works on the Linux host and the Windows guest VM. Both sound and microphone work in the original VM image on my machine, but only sound works in the cloned VM on my wife's machine.

If you've followed me down the rabbit hole this far, please continue with me a bit further as things get stranger and stranger. After triple checking all the setting in KMix (I'm running Squeeze/KDE on both machines) to be sure they were identical, I noted that I was unable to view/add/enable the "channel" option on my wife's machine. Why, I have no idea. As I said, the machines are identical as can be both regarding hardware and software. Out of desperation, I decided to set up an account for my wife on my machine. I created her account, made sure she had the necessary audio permissions, then cloned my VM to her account. Same problem.

I would love for someone to point out what I'm missing here. Same hardware, identical VM (clone), same permissions, same sound configurations in KMix and under the Windows guest VM. How is it possible for the microphone to work for me, but not for my wife? Is there some mystery configuration file somewhere that has magically been altered for her account alone? The worst part about this entire process is that I've broken my wife's Skype, which is a big deal seeing as we live in a tiny country in the heart of Africa and cell phone communications are very expensive.

Debian Multimedia :: Skype - Couldn't Get Into Sound Settings - Froze ?

Nov 30, 2010

I have a Debian Sid x86_64 installation on my laptop. I used to use skype a lot when I was on ArchLinux in chrooted 32bit environment. Nowdays, I tried running skype straight on the 64bit environment, when I finally got it running, I couldn't get into sound settings, it froze right when I clicked the Sound options... So I decided to make the 32 bit environment, so I used debootstrap and schroot and now I have fully functional 32bit chrooted system. It does the same thing all over again! it drives me crazy... I should probably tell you, I use pulseaudio. This makes it a little hard to like the distro for me... I used to be an ArchLinux user for quite few years, but I didn't want to solve so many things every day, so I went with debian

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound From Headphones In 11.3

Jul 19, 2010

I just installed OpenSUSE 11.3/KDE4 and now I have no sound from the headphone jack. I checked Kmix and everything is fine.I do remember that in OpenSUSE 11.2 I had this similar problem which I solved by switching ON/OFF the "Independent HP" option in Kmix. The problem with 11.3 is that this option is not available in Kmix.

I have installed the Ubuntu 10.04 on a HP Pavilion dv3-2150ep laptop and I can't get sound on my headphones when I plug them. Besides the laptop speakers don't shutdown either - like it happened with the same OS on my Toshiba Tecra M4."aplay -l" lists my card properly and nothing is muted on "alsamixer". It states that my card is a HDA Intel with chipset Nvidia MCP78 HDMI.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Use Headphones - No Sound Comes From Them / Get It?

Jul 15, 2011

I can't use my headphone jack.

The laptops speakers work fine (in fact they're clearer and stronger than ever), but I can't use audio equipment that I plug into the audio jack (headphones, speakers, ect.).

I checked System/Sound, looked into the Output tab, and found that there are two devices for sound output displayed: Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI, cause my laptop has an HDMI port), and Internal Audio Analog Speaker (default sound output). No "Headphones" or "3.5mm Jack" or something like that. Even when I have something plugged in the jack.

So when I plug in my headphones, no sound comes from them, and the laptop speakers are still playing. It's like Ubuntu doesn't detect anything plugged into the audio jack at all.

I own an Acer Aspire One 522.

I'm having an issue with my computer and the headphones. When I plug in the headphones into the headphone jack, the sound plays through the headphones but it also plays through the speakers as well at the same time. I've attempted to play around with the sound settings to see if I can get this issue resolved but I have not been able too. Computer specifications are in my signature.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Only Getting Mono Sound In Headphones

Aug 27, 2010

i'm new to ubuntu, this is the second time i've installed it (i had enough of xp). with careful planning and thinking, i managed to get a few things working, like high resolution, java plugin, and flash. but there's a problem i encountered during listening to music: my headphone has only sound in the left speaker. i took a glance at system>preferences>sound, and i tried a couple options, but nothing worked.

some generic information:
- i have an integrated sound card (into an abit kd7 motherboard).
- my headphone is a thomson wpd265, which is working perfectly.
- neither videos, nor .flac audio plays in stereo.

i tried to google the problem, but this thing seems to be a bit rare. i'm sure this problem is related to software, since everything went fine under different circumstances (xp). it turns out that neither the speaker system is working - only the front left works from the five, and 5.1 output laggs.

Debian Hardware :: No Sound From Headphones

Jun 30, 2014

I've got a 5yr old Sony Vaio TT that works like a charm with Jessie amd64... only the headphones output is not working.

When I plug the headphones in, the laptop speakers get muted, but I get no sound from the headphones

I've got Gnome & default pulseaudio installed, and I've played with all switches in alsamixer / gnome-alsamixer / pavucontrol with no luck.

It's an Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) card that uses snd-hda-intel & snd-hda-codec-realtek modules among others; in /etc/modprobe.d I've added a .conf file with "options snd-hda-intel model=sony-vaio-tt" in it, but same behaviour...

Debian Hardware :: No Sound Through Headphones

Oct 29, 2010

my speakers work fine. However, there are 6 2.5ml audio jacks on the back of this soundcard, and I should like to be able to use more than 1- I have my headphones plugged in to the blue (normally line out) socket, and the mic plugged into the pink (normally mic) socket.A bunch of google searches reported that I'm not the only person to have had sound issues- but most of them seemed to be pertaining to laptops not switching off speakers when the headphones were plugged in- which is hardly relevant!

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Is Not Coming From Laptop Speakers And Headphones

Apr 24, 2010

I might have a different problems as I have a newer laptop, a HP dv6-2170us with intel i5 cpu. I had no wireless with the 2.6.31 kernel so I upgraded to the 2.6.34 and had to manually compile my wireless driver. Everything works great now except the sound issue. I thought it use to work out the box with the old kernel, but then again I might be wrong. I knwo it works in the "other os" dual booting and all. Its a not a huge issue, but hopeing I could resolve it. Here is some of the info from reading some of the other posts. the model=dell-vostro I just tried to see if that works, which is doesnt, so thats why thats in my sound.conf file.


Have I missed anything? I have tried the fix here: Audio coming from both headphone and laptop speakers - Page 3 - openSUSE Forums page 3 about adding a repo and upgrading, but that upgrade wants me to revert back to the older kernel in which case I dont have wireless support or acpi working proporly, so thats not a doable thing for me.
