Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Doesn't Work After Switching From Pulse To ALSA

Oct 16, 2010

I have made a pretty sizable mistake. I was trying to figure out why my game was having sound issues when I was told to update my sound drivers. After a bit of searching, I came across this website. I downloaded and ran the script in the first link. Minor problem: I was using PulseAudio, not ALSA. Needless to say, the script didn't work. After the machine rebooted, I had no sound at all. I was planning on switching to ALSA anyway, so I found this thread and ran the following commands:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Alsa Works - But Not Pulse

Jan 27, 2011

This is a fresh install of 10.10 (although I had the problem on 10.04 as well). I have installed MythTV on here (via apt-get, its not MythBuntu), and use the system primarily for that. Myth works great, sound in everything, no problems.

However, not much else can play sound. Firefox (.....), totem, mplayer, all nothing. Either just no sound or crash. If I can set them to use Alsa (eg: VLC), then they work.

System is an Asus P5B and on-board sound. I've also got an Nvidia GT210 and would like to use the HDMI out, but can't get anything at all to go through this. Don't know if thats related or not. Sound problems existed before adding the GT210.

One strange thing is, I can go into Preferences -> Sound -> Hardware and click "Test Speakers". Of course nothing plays. However, if I then set the onboard card to "Off", and then back to "Analogue Stereo Duplex", then click "Test Speakers", the left speaker works (right is still silent). But from then on, Pulse apps can play sound, until next reboot. Having FF open on a ..... video or something similar prevents Myth from playing sounds however.

What can I do to get sound working sanely? I don't need optical out, surround or anything. Simple stereo will be fine at this point, via either the onboard or the GT210.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound, Only Dummy Output In Pulse?

I am running openSUSE 11.2 with an hda-intel sound card (dell latitude d830) in x64. Pulseaudio is only giving me a "dummy" sound card, even though volume in the yast sound configuration works. Volume is definitely not muted.Here is the requested[URL]

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can I Remove Pulse Audio To Fix Glitchy Sound

Apr 11, 2011

I hear Pulse Audio is the culprit of all the sound issues. I would like to remove it, and default to straight ALSA or whatever distros like Fedora and Ubuntu use, which has never been problematic for me.

Debian Multimedia :: Removing Pulse And Installing Alsa On Squeeze?

Feb 18, 2011

I want to remove pulse and install alsa instead but I can't seem to be able to do it. I tried to search for all packages with "pulse" in their names and purging them but it didn't work because aptitude wanted to remove all of the packages that used pulse with along with pulse.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Disconnects From Pulse Audio ( Alsa ) On 10.04?

Feb 2, 2011

When using Skype, the sound suddenly stops working, both ways (about 4-5 min into the communication). The message "connection failed: connection terminated" is displayed and when I click OK, Pulse Audio closes and Skype freezes. Actually, and I just realized this, the sound suddenly stops working on Firefox as well. (The Alsa plugin in Pulse Audio 'Playback' just disappears). However this occurs after a long period of use. I've just watched about 30 continuous minutes of live soccer through Espn3, before the audio stopped working. No message was displayed though, and just refreshing the page fixed it.

All this makes me think this is some type of Alsa-Pulse Audio problem. I really don't understand well what they are, although I believe Alsa is a driver and Pulse Audio a sound server? Sorry, I started using Linux very recently. I am using Ubuntu-Studio 10.04 and the rt Kernel (2.6.33-29-realtime). Sometimes I use Pulse Audio in Jack and vice-versa, using pactl load-module module-jack-sink and source respectively, but my problem seems to occur even if I unload the modules before using Skype. I believe all this started happening after I started using the rt kernel and/or the module-jack-sink/source.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Mplayer To Recognize ALSA And / Or Pulse Audio Server

Jan 4, 2010

I'm trying to get mplayer to recognize ALSA and/or pulse audio server, preferably both. On my laptop, mplayer works fine -- mplayer -ao help lists oss, alsa, pulse, and jack, among others. But here's the output of mplayer -ao help on the computer I'm trying to set up:


ALSA and pulse are both installed, and pulse is running -- ps -A | grep pulse gives: 3627? 00:00:00 pulseaudio Yet, mplayer fails to realize this. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong that's really simple...but what?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic + ALSA - Pulse. Playback Works, But Not Record?

Jan 20, 2010

I have upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10. Both playback and record were working using only ALSA. Karmic installed PulseAudio. Looking around the forums I found a post on how to update to the latest ALSA driver (+ lib + utils) and remove pulse to take it out of the equation. With or without pulse I cannot get record working. For work I need to use my laptop as a softphone. I've tested my headset on another machine - headphones and mic both work. Any suggestions on how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated. I have a Thinkpad T61P. Below is the output of some hopefully useful commands ...uname -aLinux moes 2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP Thu Dec 10 16:20:31 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AC3 Passthrough Pulse/Alsa/XBMC - Acer Aspire Revo?

Jun 16, 2010

Is it possible to install XBMC onto Ubuntu Lucid and still have passthrough audio to a connected receiver (i.e. a workaround with Pulse)? I have an Acer Aspire Revo R1600 connected via HDMI to my Onkyo reciever. I am able to get desktop sounds and play MP3 files from XBMC, but passthrough has been a bear. If I tell Pulse that my sound device is analog, for some reason I can get XBMC to pass through audio. However, I would like to keep system sounds and have the passthrough ability if it's possible. As I understand it (from about two weeks of fidgeting) this is a limitation of Pulse and it's lack of pass through support. It seems so simple. I've tried multiple different .asoundrc configirations none of which have gotten me there. I've upgraded Alsa. I'd rather not run XBMC live if I dont have to. I'd like to have the ability to have a workstation for when I need it. I've upgraded to the latest NVIDIA driver available from their website - 195.36.31.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Microphone - Alsa - Pulse Audio - Can't Record Anything

Apr 8, 2011

I have some microphone problems. I can't record anything. (I'm using openSUSE 11.3)

My sound card was detected almost correctly (at least the chip-set was i think). I have an Asrock motherboard (k7upgrade880, with a Southbridge: VIA 8237 | Audio: CMedia CMI9761 6 channel AC'97.

I ran these commands so far with these results - while i was following the audio troubleshooting guide (SDB:Audio troubleshooting - openSUSE

But i have NO audio playback problems - movies, games, music all play well. And the Microphone guid has a broken link

I tried to change my 50-sound.conf file (i read it on a forum, I'm new to linux troubleshooting) from this:
options snd slots=snd-via82xx to this: options snd slots=snd-via82xx position_fix=1

But that did not work either. I did not get any sound with the last line.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Alsa And Two Sound Cards In 11.2?

Dec 2, 2009

1. I run Suse 11.2 with two sound cards , one HDA comes with motherboard and second is USB, which I use for skype and talking. In YAST everything is fine the motherboard card is marked as prime card and the usb card is marked as second. But often when I log in alsa decides that second card is main and I have to pull out the USB card, run command "rcalsasound restart" and put the USB back afterward. It is a way that to be fixed in the way that alsa remember my choices forever. 2. The other problem is that from time to time the sound suddenly dies and I have to bring it up with rcalsasound restart again.

But I have to admit that their significant improvement with managing sound with PulseAudio.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Alsa: Cannot Record Sound

Mar 17, 2011

I've got sound - I hear all the system sounds, I can play sound files, CDs, etc. But I have not been able to record and play back anything with success.

Originally, when I would record (either with arecord or with audacity) I would get extremely low quality sound, with lots of noise and crackling, and my recorded voice was barely audible (even with volume turned up to max). I played with alsamixer for hours without being able to improve matters.

Things are worse now. I tried installing alsa-firmware, as indicated at SDB:Audio troubleshooting - openSUSE. I also tried updating alsa following instructions given at SDB:Alsa-update - openSUSE. I'm not sure which of these changes did it, but the result is that I can no longer record ANYTHING at all. I get absolutely nothing, not even the low quality noise and crackling I was getting before. It's as if there is no audio input at all.

Uninstalling alsa-firmware and reverting back to the older alsa version (1.0.20) didn't change a thing.

I'm running openSUSE 11.2, kernel, alsa 1.0.20. My sound card is a Creative X-Fi (by the way, yast cannot detect my card, another problem I have never solved).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.3 - Any Way To Increase Sound Level In Alsa

Sep 1, 2010

I have just installed OS 11.3 onto a lenovo desktop / Thinkcentre that previously had vista installed on it. With Opensuse I am having trouble getting much sound volume. With Vista the volume was fine but with Opensuse I have PCM, Master running pretty much on full. This gives me a respectable volume but I think there should really be more left in the tank from what I have it at. Is there any way to increase the gain in Alsa? The sound device shows in KDE as HDA Intel (AD198x) using xine backend.

Ubuntu :: Use ALSA Without PULSE ?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Configuring Alsa (or Alsa-oss) After Hardware Upgrade?

Nov 19, 2010

I have recently been forced to do a hardware upgrade (my previous mobo died). Now, sounds works ok with,amarok because kde has recognized the new hardware and switched to it.

..... does not work, likely because flash uses alsa-oss which is probably not configured automatically. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling both alsa-oss and flash, but it didn't solve the problem.

Debian Multimedia :: My Sound - ALSA Or Pulseaudio?

Jun 18, 2010

I am using a couple of Debian Distro (Sid and Lenny) add some Ubuntu into the mix. I made the switch because I was amazed and satisfied with Debian --> once installed, everything works. For me that's okay for o so many years now. I don't question a lot because it just works and I do my job on it satisfactorily. Namely programming the LAMP style programming. Lately I have been using Debian to communicate over the internet -- using Skype and Pidgin and other such things, not to mention listening to music, watching movies, just using the default applications when I originally install Debian.

Along the way, I need to configure something -- that is desktop related -- like the screen resolution of a new LCD monitor replacing the old one and such. Now about my sound -- I'm not touching it because it is working. But that is not the case always. Now I have a constant error -- it is irritating. Rhythmbox don't make a sound always when I have open a web browser (iceweasel, chrome, epiphany) and a site with multimedia object on it -- like a video or something. So how do I correct this? How do I know, too what I am using -- ALSA or Pulseaudio?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Capture Sound With ALSA

Oct 1, 2010

I recently converted an amd 64 bit WINdows machine to Lucid 64 bit. Everything has gone well. I had numerous issues with Pulseaudio that I removed it. Sound with Alsa has been great, including system theme sounds. I can record via a mike as well. What I cannot do is to capture sounds coming through the sound card. When I record I am getting empty files. The mixer indicates that there are two capture devices. Here is some data on my audio card.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound From ALSA - Softmodem Dead Too

Dec 17, 2010

In the process of trying to get the softmodem working, I finally attached speakers to this laptop and tried to play some sounds. Nothing but silence. Both the KDE system sounds and a stand-alone player (noatun) produce nothing. No error messages that I can find, either. (That might explain why the softmodem is dead, too...) I've run alsaconf several times, and even uninstalled and reinstalled ALSA. It thinks it is working, but is not. What sorts of things do I need to check to find where it isn't working?

Info: The motherboard is a FIC 3500W with the VIA P4M800 integrated chipset. This includes the VIA 8237 sound system, which is what ALSA detects and tries to use. The machine also has a Realtek ALC655 but I don't see any drivers for that in the lsmod output, so this is a possible source of the trouble.

Debian Multimedia :: ALSA - Sound From 1 Source Being Played Only

May 29, 2011

I decided to break free from the horrible life of a windows vista user. I like my new debian (Wheezy) installation and everything worked fine so far. Now I stumbled upon a huge problem. When I want startup and login into my gnome installation the first application I open gets to play sound and others after that just don't work. I looked endlessly on google but in my understanding the problem is within the ALSA driver.

Some specs :
OS version : Debian 7 (Wheezy)
Laptop brand : Packerd Bell Easynote LJ-65
Kernel installed : 2.6.38-2-686 (Standard one in wheezy)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In Lucid After Alsa Upgrade?

Jul 15, 2010

So i upgraded to 10.04 a few months ago, right after it was released. clean install. it worked perfectly out of the box, or so it seemed. I had had sound problems in 9.10 that i didn't experience after i upgraded... until i tried to use some headphones a few days ago. when i connected the headphones, the speakers wouldn't mute. i thought it was no big deal. i had the same issue in 9.10 and it was fixed after i upgraded alsa. i figured i'd try the same thing. I used the same alsa upgrade script i used last time [URL] and it fixed the jack sensing and the sound worked perfectly... for about 5 minutes. after a short while of playing audio, sound would stop playing. i'd stop getting sound from video files, audio files, and even from my browser. i'd have to reboot to get sound again... only to lose it again in about 10 minutes. Now it's regressed to the point where i have no sound even after i reboot.

weird thing is, when i test out an audio file with aplay, it works... even if i just get garbage sound from some mp3 files.

anyway, i've got an HP dv7 and this is my aplay -l output

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALSA Plugin Produces No Sound?

Oct 21, 2010

I've no problems with sound on my laptop - it all works fine but Flash produces no sound at all.

I've got the Pulse audio applet running and when I'm using Rhythmbox it shows that on the playback tab and you can see the signal on the signal bar.

Viewing Flash videos shows the ALSA Plugin but shows no signal on the signal bar.
