Fedora :: Get No System Sounds ?

Aug 2, 2010

At the moment i'm dual booting Mint9/Fedora 13 (both gnome). Although sound works fine in both, i've noticed i get no system sounds in Fedora, other than at log in. I've done all the usual checks in sound & pulse audio, everything is unmuted etc etc, seems to be set up fine. There's even more sound options than Mint in usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo.

Debian :: Either System Sounds Or Other Sounds - Not Both

Feb 11, 2010

lenny gives me either system sounds, or other sounds like flash plugin sounds like videos, cd playback etc., but not both. to hear videos i have to disable system sounds. as soon as i tick enable software sound mixing (esd) in system -> preferences -> sound -> sounds, videos goes. a message saying it could not open the resource as something else is using it comes up when trying to play a cd. sounds like a threading problem in some program. what should i do to get sounds to be equitably shared by all?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: None Of Notification Sounds Work / Skype, Firefox, And Wine Still Give Sounds?

Feb 24, 2010

I've been using opensuse for about a week.(although I'm not completely a linux noob) I've been slowly moving more of the stuff I do on windows over to suse. I thought my sound was working fine until I decided to get mp3s running on amarok. I followed a bunch of guides which didn't work. While I was messing around with stuff I noticed a startup noise. I just assumed it didn't have a startup noise. At some point I broke all of my sound except running wine, so I reinstalled.

Now that I've noticed, none of my notification sounds work. Stuff like skype, firefox, and wine still give me sounds.

(If anyone could point me in the direction of a good place to get mp3s working on amarok would be nice as well.)

Ubuntu Installation :: No System Sounds / Get That?

May 1, 2010

I know Xubuntu is a "quiet" OS, but I don't even get a login sound and I have checked the box in Login Screen settings. I'm using 10.04 final. Are there no system sounds in this version? There doesn't seem to be a way to specify your own chosen sound by pointing to a directory.

Ubuntu :: How To Disable System Sounds

Jul 9, 2011

I have upgraded to 11.04, but now I can't seem to disable system sounds. There used to be a window under sound preferences where you could select the sound for various events, like when you type and you hit a limit in the input field. I can't find where I can disable certain system sounds, which I find very annoying. I use Ubuntu classic.

Software :: System Sounds Using ALSA

Jul 21, 2011

I have been unable to get Pulseaudio and ALSA to play nice together, so I have completely removed the former as Skype defaults to using it and nothing else. I also want the ability to play HDMI 5.1 HDMI passthrough through XBMC etc, which again, would not work with pulse.

However, removing pulse means that I no longer get system sounds (the intro music etc), or any sounds coming through the browser - Chromium - (i.e. when using Flash (.....)). I have searched around the forums a fair bit, but either there is not a solution (but there must be!), or my Google-fu is well below par (more likely!).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get The Sound To Work - No Web Sounds - No CD Sounds

Sep 1, 2011

I have a HP laptop model HP G72 Notebook PC, Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 350 @2.27GHz & the Sound devices are Intel(R) Display Audio & Realtek High Definition Audio.

This machine came loaded with Windows7 & I have successfully dual booted it with Ubuntu Lucid 10.04.3.

The problem I am having is that I cannot get the sound to work at all in Ubuntu. No opening sounds or anything else that I have tried. No Web sounds, no CD sounds... All sounds work fine on the Windows side, but nothing I have tried so far seem to work with Ubuntu & I have tried many options from many threads.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Desktop Recorder With System's Sounds?

Nov 16, 2010

I'm happily using recordmydesktop-gtk. What I can't figure out is if it's possible to record other then sounds from microphone even system's sounds. For instance, if I start recording while a video is playing in totem I would like to record video sound too. Otherwise if I'm recording some action with windows or programs I would like to record warning/error sound too.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: SPDIF: PCM Audio (MP3 - System Sounds) Cut Off At Beginning

Aug 9, 2010

I am using the Creative X-Fi Surround sound card and a Samsung 5.1 Home Theater system. When I play back MP3s, or system sounds are played, the beginning of the audio is cut off. The nature of the cut-off is that audio fades in instead of just starting. It's only the fraction of a second, but whenever sound is played after a silence (i.e. also in songs that have short silent breaks, like Roxette's "The Look"), the beginning of the audio quickly fades in. So in "The Look", instead of playing

Na na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na na she's got the look

It plays:

[%fade in]a na na na na, na na na na na, na na na na na na she's got the look

Any ideas what is causing this? I already turned off the suspend option for Pulse audio, but it happens whether I use Pulse or ALSA for output.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Choppy Sound When Get System Sounds (notifications) To Work

Mar 22, 2010

My sound was working fine except I couldn't get system sounds (notifications) to work. So I decided to install pulseaudio to see if it would fix it. Now I get system sounds and my other sounds, but now in most things (such as firefox and warcraft 3) the sound is choppy. I've tried SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE and a couple other things I've googled but it's not working for me. I'd like to be able to fix it or at least go back to the way it was.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound On HDMI Output - No Beeps - No System Sounds ?

Jun 25, 2011

I am attempting to set up a machine to use as a movie/video viewer. When I connect this machine using an HDMI cable to an HDMI TV, I get video, but no audio. No beeps, no system sounds, no noise of any kind.

I've run the following mixers and set all volume controls to maximum:Gmixer, Kmix, AlsaMixer and pavucontrol.

When playing a video, pavucontrol meter shows signal from the application and shows output signal to the HDMI device, but where that output is going to is beyond me.

Using the Sound setup of Yast, I attempt to play a test sound on the HDMI, nothing.

Built in Audio adapter works fine. I have disabled it in pavucontrol in attempts to get the sound directed to the HDMI output, but, silence is all I get. I've also tried enabling and disabling simultaneous output with no difference in results.

I've tried a few suggestions from other posts with the same issue (creating /etc/asoundrc.conf, modifying /etc/pulse/default.pa), but no joy.

If I boot up that other operating system (starts with a W), all sounds (system & video) show up on the HDMI input with no adjustments needed.

Why must this be so difficult?

The technical details:
Suse 11.4
EVGA GeForce 8400GS Video card (HDMI)

All commands below were issued while HDMI cable connected, and video playing (using VLC).

Output of alsa-info.sh: [url]

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: FFmpeg And ALSA Records The System Sounds Just Fine, It Doesn't Record The Microphone?

I'm trying to record a video with sound through FFmpeg, and while it records the system sounds just fine, it doesn't record the microphone (in fact, it crashes on doing so!). The strange thing is that if I use arecord, it works just perfectly, but through ffmpeg it crashes.This is the command that I use to launch FFmpeg:

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To Get Sound-test To Play Sounds As Well As Connect To The Sound Device In Vmware And Play Sounds?

Nov 5, 2009

I'm trying to figure out what in the world is going on with my sound in OpenSuSE. I put in a brand new Audigy chipset soundcard and finally got some sound to come out of the speakers. I used the guide here: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE. to fix the permissions on my sound and am able to get sound-test to play sounds as well as connect to the sound device in my vmware and play sounds. That being said, I have terrible sound quality coming out. There is a lot of static sound like white noise and the volume of the actual sound played is very low compared to the noise. The sounds also distort somewhat.

I have tried the pulse audio change in the tutorial above also and have been searching around google. The only problem that I saw similar was a person who fixed the problem by updating KDE. I don't have KDE, I'm using Afterstep.

Fedora :: Cannot Play Sounds In F14 With KDE 4.5.5

Feb 6, 2011

For some reason I cannot play sounds anymore. It worked fine, but it just stopped working and I have no idea why. Might have been an update, but I'm not sure. I really have no idea what to do, restarting certainly didn't do anything. I use Fedora 14 with KDE 4.5.5. In the system settings I can chose "Internal Audio" as Hardware with a couple of different Profiles, of which none work.

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

Fedora :: Event Ids And Associated Sounds - Failed ?

Feb 11, 2010

With /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play set to --id='desktop-login' in the startup Applications dialog one expects a sound to play at login. This is not the case with fedora 12. I set the variable to --file=/home/me/sounds/myloginsound and I got sound.

I'm curious as to why the event id failed. I suspect that id was not linked/associated with any sound before fedora 12 was released. How does one troubleshoot sound event ids and their associated sounds in f12.

I'd like to get audio when I log out as well. I recall seeing a dialog box with events and associated sounds in f11 (or was it f10?) .... I don't see it in f12

1. Does anyone know which package adds that functionality?

2. In the absence of a GUI approach, how can this be achieved (with the terminal)?

Software :: Installed Fedora 12 And Sun JRE / No Sounds?

Jun 25, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 (and got it up and running - wow) and installed the Sun JRE. I tested the thing on ... Runescape, and got no sounds...ya know, the birds, the chopping sounds, the works.
I checked in the hardware tab of the sound app and did not find ALSA there, though it is (possibly) installed, as I have used the alsa mixer.

Any clues as to get the sound going? This is killing my current project.

Fedora :: Mysterious Sounds Emanating From Computer

Jun 12, 2010

All of a sudden this morning my computer started making these mysterious sounds. The first sound is a sequence of three notes going up. About a minute later there is a sequence of three notes going down. There is nothing in the system tray to indicate that anything is abnormal. When it started doing it I updated, restarted, updated again, and finally restarted. I did not update again after that thinking that this is not a Windows machine, so that would not be necessary.

Fedora :: Unable To Play Media Sounds On HP Laptop - F14 KDE

Jan 24, 2011

I just installed Fedora 14 (running KDE) on my HP DV6Z-SE. It came pre-packaged with Windows 7 and I am running a dual-boot (I kept Windows for gaming purposes). Anyway, problem is I am unable to play media sounds. I've tried playing my music (all OGG Vorbis) on both DragonPlayer and VLC, to no avail. When I go to Phonon, I have two options for prefered devices, "Redwood HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 5600 Series] Digital Stereo (HDMI)" and "Internal Audio Analog Stereo".

When I test them, the Radeon one never plays sound, while the Internal Audio plays the test sound sometimes (rarely). I tried moving the latter up the preference order, but it changed nothing.

Fedora Installation :: Window And Button Sounds - WABS Are Very Loud

Jun 11, 2009

I've just installed Fedora 11 and have noticed some funkiness regarding "window and button sounds".

Here are my observations: (All found using "Sound Preferences")

If "Output Volume" (OV) is set to max, and "Alert Volume" (AV) is set to max, the "window and button sounds" (WABS) are very loud. This seems to be correct.

If I begin to move OV to a lower slider value, the WABS become quieter twice as fast as other sounds (such as ..... videos). However, all sounds seem to get quieter in some sort of inverse curve. (As opposed to the more normal linear fashion.) At about 50% level the WABS are non-existent and other sounds are way too quiet.

Now here's the funky thing. If I leave OV at full and begin to reduce AV, whenever a WABS is heard, the OV volume temporarily reduces to the AV level until the sound is finished.

And here's the uber funky thing: If I reduce OV by 25% and AV by 50% and an WABS occurs, the OV volume temporarily changes to a 75% reduced volume. This mathematical relationship remains true until the combined value is greater than 100% reduction, at which point the speaker icon temporarily shows a mute icon (small red "x") and no sound is heard. (This can be seen in "Sound Preferences" and the Gnome-Panel icon.)

Another thing I've noticed is the "Master" slider in "Advance Volume Control" hits rock bottom when the "Sound Preferences" slider is only at 50%. (The terminal based alsamixer has the same behaviour.)

On a positive note, enabling Japanese input was by far the easiest it has ever been on Linux, or even Windows. Awesome! Let's just hope this iBus thingy isn't too buggy... Nyuk, nyuk!

I'm not sure how to find out exactly what my sound chip might be, but it's some nVidia nForce2 doohickey.
