Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Revert To Default Sound Settings

Oct 25, 2010

Since I installed the system-wide equalizer I've been having some problems with my sound system. The problem is it has changed some system settings (visible in gconf) and after I uninstall it, I can't change any sound settings, except the volume in a given application, but the system-wide volume doesn't work, even the tray icon shows three dashes next to the little speaker and the sound settings won't start. I'd like to revert the settings to the original after removing the equalizer, as at this moment I can't change any settings even with the equalizer enabled. Is there any way to reset the sound settings

(I suppose it must be in gconf, but I don't know what the values should be. Currently the musicaudiosink settings are: audioresample ! audioamplify amplification=0 ! pulsesinkv)

Those are the settings that definitely changed after installing the equalizer, but they obviously won't change back after uninstalling it.

Jun 10, 2010

I have no sound, is it possible to restore the default sound drivers/settings in 10.04?It was work well before except for one issue, I couldn't get mic in for Rosetta Stone using wine. I have followed so many howto's to try and get Rosetta Stone working and then my sound working again.I think this is my main problem I upgraded alsa to "alsa-driver-1.0.23". I could easily be wrong about that assumption though.I have a Dell XPS M1210Ubuntu 10.04 64bitI think this is my sound card, "lspci -v | less"00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)Subsystem: Dell Device 01d7Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11 Memory at efffc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel modules: snd-hda-intelBut I don't think it is being recognized,

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Revert VLC To The Default Skin GUI?

Oct 3, 2010

I'm using VLC in ubuntu 10.10. May problem began when I DL and changed the skin of my VLC media player. After installing the new skin, the gui doesn't work. I can't open the preferences and change the skin settings from there.

I've tried removing and re-installing VLC but, when I install it, it remembers the old skin on which I got that problem. I've tried deleting the vlc files in "/var/cache/apt/archives" and "/var/lib/dpkg/info" but, it still remembers the previous setting on which I got the this problem.

Debian :: Grub Settings Revert After System Update

May 18, 2010

I used the Debian Lenny (main, not testing) update manager yesterday to install some new updates. Took a few minutes and no problems but today I started up and for some reason my system wouldn`t load.The hard drive installer automatically sets hd1,0 as my Debian system when it`s 0,0. I had changed this but upon updating yesterday the system again has grub using the previous setting.

Is there any logical reason why a system update (not upgrade, just small update via update manager using only main files not testing or volatile nor backports) could or would change my grub settings back to the wrong ones? I haven`t installed anything else, the only change has been the standard system update so it can only be that which caused it, but why?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ALSA Mixer Returns To Default Settings On Restart

Dec 24, 2010

I notice that each time I boot my computer, under the playback section of the ALSA Mixer the 'Speaker' volume control is turned all the way down. Even when I return it to the proper level, and then restart my computer later, the slider for 'Speaker' seems to default back to the previous state mentioned above. Is there a way to set the default for the ALSA mixer in a .conf file of some sort so that the default setting for 'Speaker' is always at max?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Settings Resetting

Dec 10, 2010

10.10 x64. This did not occur before I dist-upgraded from 10.04.I use a USB headset that has always "just worked," as long as I have it selected under both Input and Output in Sound Preferences.Now, periodically I'll hear a pop in my headset, the music/sound will mute for a second, and then come back louder. What's happening is that in Sound Preferences, the default selections are being reset. The sound comes back louder because of my volume settings. Additionally, on boot I run a script to set a few keybindings I use for Ventrilo. When all of this happens, I have to run this script again to get the bindings back.

To fix it, I have to go into sound preferences, select my headset in both Input and Output, fiddle with the volume so it returns to normal, and then rerun my binding script.My first guess was that the headset's connection is "farting", like it'd do a disconnect/reconnect, and Ubuntu deals with it by selecting visible hardware. But I can't for the life of me reproduce it. It just happens randomly.I guess it's possible that the script's issue is related to ventrilo/wine, and not a direct result of this sound issue. I'm mentioning it in case it isn't.I reproduced it by pulling the USB cable out and putting it back in. So there's either a short or Ubuntu is resetting the USB port periodically. Does it drop ports like that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Settings Are Not Saved?

May 7, 2011

I am running a dedicated audio PC (Ubuntu 10.04 on Intel Atom 525) with a Juli@ sound card. I had everything set up and working great up until I accidentally pulled the sound card out of its slot while the computer was running. After that, the computer no longer recognized the Juli@ card.

I managed to fix the basic problem by following the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solution Guide- deleting and reinstalling ALSA is what did the trick. The only problem remaining is that the computer no longer remembers the output settings in the Sound Preferences dialog. The setting stays for as long as the computer is on, but as soon as I turn it off and reboot it, the sound output setting reverts back to the internal audio. I tried 'sudo alsactl store 1', but this does not work. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Keeps Losing Settings Every Reboot?

Jan 4, 2010

My system (Ubuntu 9.10 Gnome Desktop) keeps 'forgetting' my sound settings. every day I have to go into sound preferences and select a different hardware device setting and then change it back to the right one in order for it to work. For instance my sound goes out of my onboard intel based sound via optical to my amp and so the hardware setting for this is IEC598 output + analog stereo input But everytime I boot their is no sound (and hence no light coming through the optical cable) so then I'll change it to Analog surround and the light comes out so then I can change it back to the 1st setting and it works again. Hope that makes sense, I have had this problem and also my video settings have been 'forgotten' and samba also won't work ever since about 4 days ago when the system updated, everything was working fine before that (i have run update manager since and everything is up to date)

Red Hat / Fedora :: Revert Back To CentOS Default Yum RPM Repositories?

Aug 5, 2009

A while back I had to install an extra yum rpm repository to my CentOS 5 server as I needed newer versions of httpd (v2.2. and php (v5.1.6) than were in the default repositories at the time.

I now wish to revert back to the standard repositories, I have removed reference to the custom repository from etc/yum.repos.d/ and used '# yum clean all' but cannot seem update these packages when I use '# yum update'.

Is there a way of making the rpm packages for httpd and php go back to using the standard repos, or will I have to manual update them from now on?

Or could I uninstall those rpms and reinstall from default repo without breaking the whole server?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Acquire Sound Drivers And Settings Panel

Jun 7, 2010

I've just moved from Ubuntu 9.04 and installed 10.04. I have 5.1 sound set up and selected the Analogue Surround 5.1 in the hardware selection. I'm using on board sound so i have the correct device selected. I have sound but my problem comes when trying to adjust the balance and sub etc. I can move the subwoofer on its own and set the fade on its own but if i try to change the balance the fade moves with it (not always in the same way, sometimes it fades to the rear, some times to the front). Also, when i move the master volume the subwoofer level follows it.Is there a fix for this problem?

Also how can i acquire the sound drivers and settings panel that where in 9.04 if not? will they still be comparable with 10.04?

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 Multimedia :: Set Sound Control To Amplify By Default?

Feb 1, 2010

In sound control, the bar that shows your volume level has a mark about 75% across that signifies your max volume without digital amplification.[URL] If you drag the settings dongle to the right of that mark, your volume does get louder, but I cannot achieve that effect via my usual keyboard shortcuts (e.g. F8-for-volume-down, F9-for-volume-up). They stop increasing volume at that artificial 100% mark, they do not digitally amplify as I want them to. As a result, every time I want to amplify my volume, I am forced to go all the way into sound control, which (to me) is dumb. Is there a way to set the 100% mark at the ACTUAL far right of the control bar, instead of 75% across, so that my keyboard shortcuts blend right from analog-max to amplification?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Using Non-integrated Sound By Default In Natty?

May 3, 2011

So I did the update to Natty and it went pretty smoothly, with one exception. My rig has two sound cards in it: the integrated motherboard sound card (Intel HDA audio) that I don't use, and a Sound Blaster Audigy (the original Audigy 1) that I do use.

This setup has worked fine in Ubuntu for as long as I can remember, but after the upgrade to Natty it appears that GNOME no longer knows that the Audigy is the card that's in use. It insists on routing things like volume changes via gnome-volume-control to the motherboard. I can confirm this by watching the volume levels for each card in alsamixer while modifying them in gnome-volume-control; the levels move appropriately on the integrated card, and stay stuck on the Audigy.

What makes this bizarre is that it's not that the Audigy isn't recognized -- it's shown in the "Hardware" tab of Sound Preferences, and the system plays back audio just fine through the speakers connected to the Audigy. It's just that I can't change the volume on the sound through the panel applet anymore. Normally I would fix something like this by using the Hardware tab to switch from the one card to the other, but in this case when I make that change it doesn't stick -- if I close the Sound Preferences and then open it again, it's right back to being set to the integrated audio.

Maybe this is a PulseAudio issue with older Audigy cards? I have no idea.

I can change the volume with my speakers' volume knob and my keyboard's media keys, I suppose, but I'm so used to be able to change it via gnome-volume-control that not being able to feels bizarre. Has anyone else out there with add-on sound cards installed alongside motherboard audio experienced this?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Sound Volume Default To Zero On Each Restart?

Aug 31, 2011

I use headphones and have an MCP73 sound device; am running OpenSUSE 11.4.

On each restart, I get no sound. I have to go to YAST, Hardware, Sound, Other, Volume. The 'Other channels', Front slider is at 0%. If I slide it up to 100%, my headphones start working. At this point the Help text says to press 'Next' to save the settings, but there isn't a 'Next' button...just a Cancel and OK. OK keeps the new setting, but apparently doesn't save it permanently.

What can I do to avoid having to reset this slider every time ?

Hardware :: Changes To Fstab (UUID's) / Revert Fstab's Listings Back To The Old /dev/hd Settings?

Jan 15, 2010

I've had two hd's in my box forever. for more space and backup reasons. Well I have started running the Debian Squeeze distro since December. I've had many issues, some are still unresolved. but now I'm running into major headaches with the fstab. Specifically dealing with/wondering why UUID's are used instead of the old /dev/hd? I was a little annoyed when I tried Kubuntu to find /dev/sd? used instead of /dev/hd? but that was workable. But the UUID's are a nightmare. Here's my problem.

My main box is finally giving up the ghost. The mobo is dying. So in order to do some tests I took my hd bundle (my two hard drives with their cables) physically out of the box and temp installed them in a test box. I wanted to do some benchmark and other tests. I got all kinds of errors. I found that the system wasn't recognizing the UUID's listed in fstab. My concern is when the new mobo gets here next week I won't simply be able to plug the hd's in like I always have been and just let Linux reconfigure itself (Debian used to be good about this). I really don't want to have to clean reinstall if it's not needed.

So for this I have two questions. WHY developers decided to drop using /dev/hd? or even /dev/sd? ?

And is it possible to revert fstab's listings back to the old /dev/hd? settings. In debian fstab had lines commented out showing how each partition was listed in it's /dev/hd? status during install.

I'm getting really sick of all these archane changes in ALL aspects of linux that don't seem to have any good explaination or need.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Record Sound In Kubuntu 10.04 - Default Device For Audio Recording Does Not Work

Jun 28, 2010

I have detected some problems when I try to record sound in my Kubuntu 10.04 system.

The problem is that the "default" device for audio recording does not work but I have to select another device to do so. I always selected the "default" device for audio recoding but currently I have to select hw:0,2 device.

Another odd thing is that different programs show me different device. For example, Audacity shows me that I have the following audio recording devices:

- HDA Intel: ALC888 Digital (hw:0,1)
- HDA Intel: ALC888 Analog (hw:0,2)
- spdif
- default

The only one that works is hw:0,2.

But arecord shows me (when I execute "arecord -L") the following:

Finally, in KDE system preferences for audio I get that I have 2 different audio devices for audio recording:

- HDA Intel (ALC888 Analog): it is said that it will try first x-phonon (CARD=0, DEV=0) and, if the latter does not work, it will try plughw (CARD=0, DEV=0)

- HDA Intel (ALC888 Digital): it is said that it will try first x-phonon (CARD=0, DEV=1) and, if the latter does not work, it will try plughw (CARD=0, DEV=1)

Where is the hw:0,2? and how can I set the alsa system to use hw:0,2 as the default device for audio recording?

All of that would not be a problem but I also have an ubuntu 9.04 installed on a virtual machine (by using virtualbox) and audio recording doesn't work there. I suppose that it is becase of the virtual sound card is using default devices for playing and recording audio.

I must say that audio playback works fine in both host and guest systems. It is just audio recording.
