OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound From Headphones (Front Panel Audio)

Mar 16, 2011

I have openSUSE 11.4 KDE version (64-bit) on a desktop PC. My sound card is ASUS Xonar DX 7.1 (PCI-E). I am brand-new to the Linux experience. I get audio out to my speakers which are connected to the jacks of the rear I/O panel of my PC. I do not however get audio out to my headphones which are connected to the jack in the front panel. I know that the headphones work fine because they do so when I boot up in Windows XP. Here is what I discovered so far: KMix does not show that I have a front panel audio channel. But when I run AlsaMixer it does show that I have such channel and, upon manually turning the volume on, I do have sound out to the headphones.

Therefore, I deduct that I have some sort of configuration problem with KMix and would like to fix it as I prefer to use the GUI interface instead of the AlsaMixer one. It's just a matter of preference! I would like to troubleshoot things using the Audio Troubleshooting guide (SDB:Audio troubleshooting - openSUSE) but I notice that openSUSE's version 11.4 is not mentioned in it. Should I follow the instructions for version 11.3 or wait for an updated guide?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Front Panel Audio Not Working

Jul 5, 2011

After a recent hardware upgrade, I'm no longer able to use the front panel audio ports on my Antec P180 case. They worked fine before with my old ASUS motherboard, but with my new MSI 870-G45 motherboard I can't get them to work for some reason.

I checked out this thread, [URL] but didn't see much in the way of problems/solutions with front panel audio ports, but it's a lengthy thread so maybe I missed it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Use Sound Card At The Same Time As Front Audio Jacks?

Jan 29, 2010

with my motherboard the onboard back sound jack's audio is VERY quiet, but the front jacks wired into HD audio work fine. (I'm building an htpc, btw.)

I tried for weeks to get it to work, but eventually I just pulled a cheap Dynex DX-SC51 card from another machine and turns out it works, but now I can't use the inputs and headphone jack on the front of the case without going into system>preferences>sound and changing "output" back to "internal analog audio stereo"

Is there any way to activate these two audio devices at the same time?

Ubuntu :: Test Sound - No Application Sound Through Front Audio Socket - 10.04

Jun 22, 2011

Strange one. Just upgraded my mother-in-law's computer from 8.04 to 10.04 via the update manager. All seems to be working beautifully except ...

* When I run gstreamer-properties and do an output test I get a test sound through the headphones plugged into the front audio socket of the machine using the 'Analogue Headphones' setting in Sound Preferences. (This rules out dead headphones.)

* When I try to play audio through any app I get no sound through the headphones, but if I change the setting to 'Analogue Output' in Sound Preferences I get audio loud and clear through the speakers which are plugged into the audio socket at the rear of the machine. how the gstreamer-properties test is getting audio to the front socket I guess I'd be getting somewhere.

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.

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.

Ubuntu :: Sound Only In Headphones With Sigmatel Audio / Get It On My Laptop?

Mar 6, 2010

I'm running a Dell inspiron 1501 laptop with a sigmatel stac 9200 sound chipset.

When I had ubuntu 9.04, I had sound no problem and when I upgraded to 9.10 I had sound for a little bit. Now the only way I get sound off my laptop is by plugging in my headphones.

I've tried trouble shooting this a number of ways using the following links as the latest:

My question there anyway to get sound on my laptop without having to go through headphones?

ps. I've installed and reinstalled ubuntu 9.10 and 9.04 and neither of them have sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic No Front Audio

Feb 17, 2010

I spent over an hour today and over an hour last night googling and trying everything and so far no success. I found many threads with oddly similar complaints, but their solutions haven't worked for me.Last week I upgraded my system, basically a complete overhaul (in the old case). The new system is based on an ASUS MB which comes with VIA VT1708B audio onboard. I installed the latest 32-bit Linux Mint on it. The case's front audio jack doesn't work, the rear audio works but is too quiet.

Things I have tried that have not worked:Different combinations of settings in the basic sound preferences dialog, the GNOME ALSA mixer, and the PulseAudio volume control (I've probably played around with these so much that I've tried every combination)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Front Audio Jacks To Work?

Jan 4, 2011

I run Ubuntu 10.10 on my Intel DG965RY. My front audio ports don't work in Ubuntu, the rear one does. I never got it working earlier when I had Ubuntu 10.04 but this time I am going to try it again. My codec is SigmaTel STAC9227

My ALSA information is here.

Handy details:
!!ALSA Version

Driver version: 1.0.23
Library version: 1.0.23
Utilities version: 1.0.23


I know something that I will have to change the model of my module to make the front audio jack works but I couldn't find a model related line in my ALSA configuration file - /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (I was able to get to that point in Ubuntu 10.04, may be something has changed).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 5.1, No Sound In Front Left And Right?

Nov 4, 2010

Basically as the title suggests. I'm a linux noob, I've spent a few hour's looking around, but all I seem to be finding is people with problems of no sound, and so I dont know if the solution would be the same.

I have perfect sound from the rear speakers, the front centre, and the sub, but the front left and right are completely silent.

Things I think anyone may need to know

Onboard sound - SBx00 Azalia Intel HDA

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound From Rear Speaker But Front Works?

Feb 3, 2011

I recently bought an HP Pavilion Elite HPE-570t. Except for the fact that I can't get the back speaker jack to work, Maverick works great. Here's info that seems relevant:

aplay -l
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: HDA Generic [HDA Generic]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


I've look at Alsa Mixer. There are two tabs (IDT ID 76c7 and ATI R6xx HDMI). I turned the second one off, since I don't have any HDMI sound output device connected to the computer. On the other tab, there are five sliders (Master, PCM, Front Mi, Line and Mic). They are all turned on, and the first two are at maximum volume.

It seems to me that Ubuntu is not recognizing whatever controls the rear speaker jack.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio Coming From Speakers AND Headphones?

Feb 4, 2010

so my problem is that i can't disable the speakers on my laptop when i plug in my headphones. in other words, i get sound from both the headphones and the speakers, when the expected behavior is to disable the speakers when headphones are plugged in, and enable the speakers when headphones are unplugged..

i've been looking around the forum and google, and i found a way to adjust the speaker and headphone volume manually in alsamixer. To adjust the headphone volume on alsamixer, i can raise or lower volume using the "Front" volume bar. To adjust the speaker volume, i raise or lower volume on the "Speaker" volume bar.

so, it's cool to know that i can do this manually, but i'm sure there's an option i can put in alsa-base.conf to automate this. i just can't seem to find that option...

anyway, i'm using Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit...and here's my alsa-base.conf file

# autoloader aliases
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-0
install sound-slot-1 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-1
install sound-slot-2 /sbin/modprobe snd-card-2

Debian Multimedia :: Intel HD Audio - Headphones/Speakers Level ?

Mar 20, 2011

This is a Lenovo L512 laptop with Intel HD Audio (Realtek ALC269 / Intel G45 DEVIBX) which was recently upgraded to Squeeze. I've been having trouble using the headphones on this machine, as the speakers continued to play while the headphones were connected. I normally use KDE, and the available mixer only offers one channel. I thought I might be able to manually silence the speakers by using the command line tool alsamixer. Unfortunately, alsamixer has a channel for the headphones, but it doesn't do anything, only master volume is controllable. By luck I decided to play around with Gnome today and to my great surprise, System -> Preferences -> Sound offers complete control over all functions of the audio hardware. Does anyone know how I could get these features working under KDE?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Application Specific Audio Output To Headphones Only?

Jan 22, 2010

I currently have my desktop setup with two displays, one of them being my living room tv that I run Boxee on. My problem is that all the audio runs through the same speakers preventing me from listening to music or gaming at the same time as when Boxee is in use.

I would like to know if it's possible to split the audio so that an application of my choosing only outputs sound through my headphones. I was thinking it would be possible with some of the controls in pulse, but if it is I cannot figure it out.
