Ubuntu Multimedia :: Acer Aspire One Mic Not Working With Flash 10 Chat
Sep 5, 2010
i recently installed ubuntu on my netbook, an acer aspireone. got everything running properly. at first i had a problem with using webcam online for sites using flash 10 (facebook, videos, tinychat), but someone directed me to the adobe control panel and after setting some permissions, everything was working fine. yesterday, i installed a bunch of updates, and since then the built-in microphone stopped working in chat.
the microphone still works if i record audio or use it in other applications. but for all of the sites using flash for video chat (listed above) i can only get the camera working, not the mic. i don't get any error messages or anything different from before. the only difference is that no sound is coming through. i wish i knew which updates i've installed yesterday. one of them must have caused the problem, since it was working fine before then.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 x64 and trying to use the built in microphone. I checked this thread: [URL] I've made sure my microphone isn't muted. I went through the troubleshooting steps here: [URL] And nothing worked. I posted the results here: [URL]If no one knows how to fix it, I'll probably just buy an external microphone.
I have just downloaded Firefox 3.6.13 onto an acer aspire one which has limpus lite. On completion it told me to upgrade my flash player. Went to Adobe and I clicked on the drop down menu and selected .tar.gz (I have no idea what this means at all but it was the same ending as the stuff for firefox). So I've now got the flash player 10 thing in my 'downloads' but I don't know what to do next through the 'run programme window'.
in compliance with bonekracker's advice, i have reposted my SOS. i have the result of the outputs of the commands for ifconfig, iwconfig, and etc i have uploaded it in the file output.doc. i hope this would be helpful in debugging my problem.but before that, i do notice that if i click on the icon for the Network Manager, the Wireless networks is set to 'wireless disabled'. maybe if i can make it turn on, my wireless problem will be solved.. its just that i even if i move the switch for the wifi, it still wouldn't turn on.
I just got new netbook for christmas and so I promptly set it up with a dual boot system cause Windows 7 starter is garbage.Anyways after ditching the Netbook Remix because quite frankly I found the Unity setup to be quite garbage. Nothing worked the way I wanted it to and I found it quite annoying.So I ditched it for the regular desktop version. I quickly found that the battery indicator didn't work.
I removed and re added the indicator panel. Nothing. killed the gnome panel and restarted it multiple times. still nothing. Restarted multiple times. nothing. I even reinstalled gnome-power-management to no avail. I also installed laptop-mode-tools and nothing has worked. I went into the power settings and set it to always display the icon and it simply showed a lightning bolt as if there was no battery and it was a tower computer.
This bug has been around for years now?!? Surely this can be fixed by now, would somebody please feel this very common issue. I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my Acer Aspire One 110AB netbook and everything seems to work fine except the wireless - I can connect via ethernet no problem.
While the wireless can scan for networks - it seems them but they seem to be rather weak signals and also no matter never connect UNLESS I turn off ALL WEP/WPA security clearly not an option.
I had UBR installed and working fine for a month or so, wireless and everything. Then I did a clean re-install while trying to add WinXP to half of my drive.Anyway, with the new install, my wireless chip (BCM4312 802.11b/g) isn't switching on at all. I've tried installing the Broadcom driver that appears when I run Hardware Drivers, but that doesn't help.With the old install, the wireless switch and indicator light on the front of the netbook worked, now nothing.
My sd slot is not working at all, doesn't recognize it. I think it may have something to do with having the desktop version installed but I could be wrong. I was only introduced to linux 4 weeks ago and am not very familiar with it, but already know I like it more than windows! I have tried three different sd cards and they all work in my other laptop with Windows 7.
I reinstalled my Acer netbook with the newest Ubuntu remix edition,ything worked fine.Today I performed an update, and after rebooting the mousepad decided to stop working, I've checked if the disable mousepad feature was turned on: it wasn't.currently I'm running 2.6.35-22-generic, how to fix this glitch ?
I tried to create an xorg.conf because I didn't have one already. I put the configuration for the synaptics touchpad in it and in the gnome preferences/mouse my touchpad actually was recognized by its name. But still it didn't work :/ I tried deleting my xorg.conf and making a xorg.conf.d directory with synaptics.conf because I saw someone recommend it in another thread. But now the gnome/mouse settings doesn't see it and it still doesn't work. I've read several threads from Arch Linux's forums saying it may be that the module is loaded twice, but I really have no idea.
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.
when I connected to the L32 HDTV over the HDMI cable, picture came up, and I thought great, plug & play. But the title bar and taskbar were missing and I soon learned that this cheap Vizio TV has a native resolution of 1366x768 and simply upscales and chops off what it considers "overscan" when you drive it at the proper 720p 1280x720. To add to the problems, it doesn't report the correct EDID modes (look at your /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see the probes or install and use the read-edid package) so 1366x768 isn't an option out of the box. I spent days mucking around with /etc/X11/xorg.conf with custom Modelines, strange options and copying confs from other threads, trying to get it working at 1366x768 or 1360x768 or 1368x768 (some variations seem to work for some people)
In the end, I didn't have to touch xorg.conf at all =) All I had to do was install the newer NVIDIA 195 drivers!!! Then you get the lovely Overscan Compensation slider in nvidia-settings, and all is well. First, you will have to apt-get remove the old drivers (probably -185 or -180). Install apt-show-versions for an easy way to do that. I had a bunch of junk, I just removed all packages that had nvidia-someversionnumber in the package name.
i tried to install ubuntu 9.10 in my acer aspire lap. i got the ubuntu CD by parcel.i was able to select the language, then second option -install ubuntu also went rite, after that nothing is happening. how can i correct it?
camorama application giving error "could not connect to video device (dev/video0) check connections".I am using Ubuntu 10.1 and intel webcam CS110. Also the webcam is not working on facebook/meebo live chat applications.
The problem now is that I cant get online. I have an Acer Aspire 5720. My network card is called Broadcom BCM4311 802.11b / g WLAN. What do I do? I've googled around and found various forum posts where I'm told that I must write various things in Terminal, which have not yet worked. I have also visited this site, where this is the first step: Open System â†’ Administration â†’ Networking. But the problem is that I can not find the "Networking" under "Administration". I have no experience with Linux what so ever, Ninja-edit: I tried reading through this, but I fell off at Make the .ko file
For long I've had problems with a slow Windows Xp-laptop, so today I decided to install Ubuntu on it.The problem now is that I cant get online. I have an Acer Aspire 5720.

I tried to install the beta version of maverick with no luck. I used usb creator to put maverick on a memory stick. When I went into live mode everything worked perfectly so I thought why not install it. I then tried to do this but after filling out all the required info it wouldn't install. I clicked the install button and the installer froze up. I currently have ubuntu netbook remix (9.04) installed on it in desktop mode. I also, awhile ago, try installing lucid (both desktop and netbook remixes) and had a similar problem with them. They both stalled installing at the 15% mark. Now with this problem with maverick I am wondering why this could be happening. I have used different memory sticks so I have ruled that out as a problem. They all have worked flawlessly and speedily in live mode.
I have just installed Meerkat on an Acer Aspire laptop, it can see various wireless networks but for some reason can't connect to them. However when I turn my HTC Desire into a hotspot it connects to that fine. Why can it connect to my phone yet not any routers?
My Acer AspireOne netbook has a native resolution of 1024x600. Most times I start up, the image is 800x480 against the left edge, black bar on the right side, and a repeated image at the bottom. (I can attach a picture if needed.)I've been seeing this problem since Ubuntu 9.10, but it's more common recently with 10.10. If I keep shutting down and powering back on, eventually it will come up in 1024x600 as I desire. If that happens, then I avoid shutting down and only use Suspend instead. However, anytime I need to reboot (for updates, etc.) the 800x480 comes back.
The Acer logo / BIOS splash screen is also in 800x480, but I only see it switch back to 1024x600 after Ubuntu loads and is shut down. (Repeatedly clicking on/off/on/off never results in the resolution changing to 1024x600.) So, I'm still suspicious that Ubuntu is causing this (no hardware). WinXP used to be on this machine, and the problem was never seen.I don't think any proprietary drivers are needed (but I am still a Ubuntu noob.) When the problem is occurring, I see this result for xrandr:
Code: swope@netbook:~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 800 x 480, maximum 4096 x 4096 VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)[code]....
I haven't been able to find xorg.conf ... but I've read that recent versions of Ubuntu create the content dynamically.Not sure what other details I should be including, at the risk of making this post too long.
I have an Acer Aspire One with Linux operating system.Using Easy Peasy.No optical drive of course, but have bought an external one.The AA One recognises it and I want it primarily to install a program which is on CD. Familiar with Windows but a novice with Linux.
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.4 as a dual boot on my Acer Aspire 0ne 533. I have to keep the Windows partition for work, or I'd have just installed Ubuntu. I'm used to plugging in an ethernet cable for the first round of updates until I get the WiFi working, but it just isn't working for me this time. I have a horrid feeling that Windows has a way of hogging the Ethernet card.
I had a look in the forums, and could not find anything referring to this specifically, which is unusual because as far as I can tell the AA1 is a popular machine and lots of people dual boot it. Perhaps it is an easy fix that's been buried in the archives?
I've got an Acer Aspire AM3920 (Intel Core i5) Desktop PC. I want to upgrade my Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat to Natty Narwhal, but it just isn't working. I've tried to upgrade two times, both resulting in a crash while installing. When I try to install it from a Live CD, I'm getting a black screen and when I press a key in the purple screen of the Live CD and select nomodeset, it doesn't work either. So my question is: Is it possible to install/run Ubuntu 11.04 on this PC?
I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 on an acer aspire 5715Z and now I have overheating problems. Originally Vista was installed on the laptop and no overheating problem was observed. I think fans are not working now, cause I never hear them.
I recently installed Ubunto 10.10 (the netbook version) onto my Acer Aspire One Netbook. The OS it came with was a very old Red Hat, so I got rid of it. I am a complete Linux newbie, and not having the best experiences so far. Basically, the netbook is completely clean with Ubuntu just installed. It's not got any files on it or any extra software. But it runs REALLY slow.
Boots up pretty quickly, but it takes ages to do anything. It'll either just run ridiculously slowly, or it will run okay for 10 seconds and then not do ANYTHING for the next 10. I have never been able to play an MP3 track without the whole thing freezing, let alone a video.Why is it so bad? The machine's not that old (maybe a year and a half) and the OS is brand new. There's no files or added software on it. What's the problem? Is there anything I can do? It's so frustrating! And it's the the only computer I've got at the moment.
