Ubuntu Multimedia :: Logitech Z-5 USB Not Even Listed In The Sound Menu?
Apr 10, 2011
After cheering the Ubuntu Developers team on the great work they did with hardware recognition, I was suddenly stunned by the silence from my USB speakers this afternoon. Although previously correctly recognized and fully functional, after installing several non- audio updates, the sound from my USB speakers ceased.Moreover, this pair of Logitech Z-5 USB speakers aren't even listed on the Sound menu (System > Preferences > Sound) although lsusb lists them correctly. I have an embedded sound adapter to which no speakers are connected. My PC runs on Ubuntu 10.04. What should I do to get the sound through my USB speakers?
I recently updated my computer Using 9.10 and I updated on the 14th. Before the update my sound was working great. No problems, but afterwards my sound is completely gone and under hardware when I click the sound option on the speaker icon I get nothing listed under hardware.
I am using the HP DV2810 US notebook PC. With this being listed as the audio device.
I will also list the updates from my synaptic history. I'm having to use Win7 . And i only wanted that for the few games that one run well in wine.
I just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 and everything is ok except my USB Logitech Headset. The problem is that volume of the device is very low and I can't hear the music or any sound like I use to heard. Even if I increase the volume up to 100%, I still hearing the sound with a very low volume. But if I use the analog output of my sound card I can hear very well. I remember that i used to have this problem in ubuntu 9.10 but I fixed with a script that I found it in this forum, but I can't find it again.

I'm on Linux dell 2.6.35-26-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP Sun Jan 30 08:10:51 UTC 2011 i686 GNU/Linux My new web cam from logitech works fine on video, but nothing on sound. I've read several posts with the same problem, but their solutions don't work for me. I plug in the camera, and the microphone is not recognized:
My desktop PC has an onboard high definition audio Realtek chipset and a plugged-in Logitech USB headset which I currently set it as default audio device. Am using openSUSE 11.2 X86_64-KDE4. Audio mixer is not muted but I cannot hear from the headset, although I can hear sounds if I run Windows 7 or Ubuntu 9.10.

MPlayer was working just fine last night, but today I'm having problems which may be due to me performing a system update. I noticed that MPlayer was no longer listed in my Applications menu and I no longer had the option of opening videos with it. However, I now had Gnome MPlayer which must have been installed with the update because I never installed it. Whilst going through Synaptic, I found that the MPlayer GUI had been removed, so I re-installed it. However nothing happened when I attempted to open videos with it.
When I tried to use it through the terminal I got the error message: mplayer: relocation error: mplayer: symbol codec_wav_tags, version LIBAVFORMAT_52 not defined in file libavformat.so.52 with link time reference
I found a bug report on this very problem here [URL]. The conclusion was that the person filing the bug report was using a version of ffmpeg not found in Debian and that he'd need a version of MPlayer built with his version of ffmpeg libs. I'm assuming that this is also the case with me, however I'm not sure how to go about finding a build or simply building a version of MPlayer with whatever version of ffmpeg that I'm using. For reference, I'm using Squeeze.
There are 2 jacks at the front of the computer, one for mic, the other for headphones. I plug them in, and I can't hear any sound. Have checked all sorts of documents and settings for pulseaudio and ALSA. If I play a sound file, the Pulseaudio meters are showing that there is sound, but I cannot hear anything. Have checked the obvious, nothing is on mute. Here are the results of some commands ..
Code: ~$ sudo aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC880 Analog [ALC880 Analog] Subdevices: 0/1
I have an acer aspire netbook with intel graphics. To get the graphics fully working I had to execute the script from the following page: [URL]...That broke the audio. So, I bought a cheap USB soundcard. I plugged it in, it was recognized and worked immediately. But the sound quality was horrible. Next, I bought some reasonably expensive Logitech USB headphones. They also immediately worked. The sound quality is a bit better, but still bad. One weird thing is that the audio quality improves with increasing CPU usage.What is also interesting is that the sound quality is perfect with bluetooth headphones. So the jitter really seems to be associated with snd_usb_audio somehow. But I have no idea what to do about.
How do i run applications that i have installed, that are not listed in the application menu? ive installed many programs with no problem-- then, i couple that i have installed from the package manager state that they have installed successfully, yet i have no idea where to find them in any menus.
I've triple booted Windows 7, Windows XP, and Linux Mint 9. I can boot to Windows XP, and Mint with no problems, but there's no Windows 7 option in the boot menu. How can I get Windows 7 to show up so that I could boot to it?
I tried sudo update-grub, but Windows 7 didn't show up.
I have a extra OS listed in my grub menu. I'm dual booting Ubuntu 10.04 and Windows 7. I am able to boot into both Ubuntu and Windows. 30_os-prober has two menu entries for Windows though. The first one is Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1) and the second is Windows Vista (loader) (on /dev/sda2). My laptop came with Windows 7 and had 4 primary partitions (System, Windows, Recovery, HP_TOOLS). After making my recovery disks I removed the Recovery partition and shrunk the Windows partition to make space for Ubuntu. So Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1) is the System partition which I select to boot Windows. Windows Vista (loader) (on /dev/sda2) is where my Windows 7 is installed. Here is output from Boot Info Script:

I was playing with Banshee and installed the banshee-extension-soundmenu package to get the Banshee control in the Indicator Applet Sound Menu.
I had so many problems with Banshee crashing and using up my system resources that I decided to stop using it. I deselected the Sound Menu option from Banshee's Preferences>Extensions, then I uninstalled the banshee-extension-soundmenu package.
However after this the Sound Menu is still showing the Banshee control. Is there a way to get rid of it?
Rhythmbox now shows up in the sound indicator menu and this has doesn't close if music is playing. I don't really use Rhythmbox to play music so I leave it on mute, butI do use it to manage my iPod and it not closing has caused me nothing but problems. I've looked and looked and cannot find a way to turn it off. Is there any solution to this?
I have installed 9.10 and do not have any sound at all. i did do a list of playback devices with aplay-l and it did not list anything. I looked in sound props and didn't find one either. I have had other versions of Ubuntu and had no problems. the machine I've loaded is a Toshiba laptop.
I am using 9.10(64bit). I want to add custom .wav sound as system sound theme.i.e when i close a program ubuntu will play a sound(custom). I can't find any option on sound preference menu. I searched in google but failed to find any useful post.
I have accidentally deleted the soundmenu in the panel that comes with the new ubuntu 10.10. After going through various posts all I can see, is that the solutions provided only provide the applet for sound control and does not have any integration with any of the music players (in my case Rhythmbox).I really want that menu back as it made listening to music while using multiple desktops very easy.
I have to use alsa for audio to work under wine (otherwise pulseaudio starts eating up processor cycles and the audio comes out horrible and distorted), but I have been unable to use the mic. The mic boost is up on the alsa mixer, and they are not muted. I cannot find any options under my system menu for Sound Preferences (which seems to get references in a lot fo help forums), or anywhere else to determine which audio driver the line in on the front uses.
I'm using an Acer laptop from a couple years ago, so support should be no problem.
Ubuntu seems to see my onboard audio card but I can't select it in the Sound options as my output. In Alsamixer I can adjust settings and have turned on SPIDIF. It's listed when I run the lspci command as
Code: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller So what is the problem?
If this sounds like a repost, that's because it is. I'm reposting because the problem is still here, nothing has changed. It's been well over a year now since I bought this damn webcam (thinking it would work because I got indications that it was known to be Linux compatible) and I'm still no closer to any sort of solution.
I can start Cheese, press record, and get a perfectly functional video. But despite my webcam having a microphone and despite ALSA detecting it (refer to old topic) I get no sound. Just complete silence. I can't even confirm whether this is a hardware or software problem because I don't know any way to test it because no one even seems to want to look at the problem! I actually want to make some videos now, but I can't because of this problem. Edit: I just tried this with our second, less powerful PC running Ubuntu Karmic. It worked. I got sound out of the webcam. That's confirmation to me that this is a problem with Debian and not with the webcam. So why does it produce sound on another PC using Ubuntu Karmic and GNOME, but not on this PC using Debian testing/unstable with KDE?
i just upgraded to ubuntu 10.04 the netbook distro. at the desktop view there is a list of about 10 buttons/menus listed on the left hand side, is there anyway to control what buttons/menus are listed and which icons are listed under each of them? having a netbook i would like to remove and unclutter the desktop view as much as possible but i dont want to remove those apps i still want to be able to open those apps if i want to even if by removing those icons and menus/buttons makes it a pain.
This may be a bit late for the OP, but I thought to post here, as this thread seems to surface when googling for Audiohub problems. I had this roughly 10-20 Hz ticking/popping constant noise as well, and it seems to be related to the fact that the speakers are connected through a USB hub, not directly.
After experimenting a bit with the kernel USB configuration, the noise went away when I unselected USB_EHCI_ROOT_HUB_TT and USB_EHCI_TT_NEWSCHED at "Device drivers - USB support - EHCI HCD". I think it is the latter option that made the difference. This was on kernel 184.108.40.206. Although marked experimental, both seem to be selected on Arch kernel26. On older kernels (2.6.20-2.6.24) you may have to select USB_EHCI_SPLIT_ISO, but there I am just guessing.
The hardware volume knob still does nothing (I don't think there is a hardware mixer, probably it just tries to communicate the volume changing request to the computer). Does anyone have idea how to make this work, it's kind of sad to have one and not be able to use it?
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
I have a HP 8510w which I attached to a sony tv via hdmi. picture is great but no sound. checked and in sound preferences, hdmi is not listed as a possible output device for sound. searched the net but couldnt find a solution. here some info:
Code: root@gre-HP8510w:/home/gre# uname -a Linux gre-HP8510w 2.6.35-28-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Mar 1 14:39:03 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Does anyone know of a variant on the Logitech SetPoint software (it allows more functions for Logitech keyboards and mice) for Ubuntu? Would the Windows version work in Wine? I didn't think it would because the app uses Bluetooth, and I don't know if Wine can do that.
Just found my old Logitech webcam again, and tried to get it to work on 10.04. Somehow this doesn't work. I tried searching the forum, but did not get an answer to my situation.
Here is what I can see: After connecting (or rebooting), dmesg shows the following lines uvcvideo: Found UVC 1.00 device <unnamed> (046d:08cc) input: UVC Camera (046d:08cc) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.0/input/input5 usbcore: registered new interface driver uvcvideo
And that's it. No message that cam was registered to /dev/video<x>. I should add that I already have another cam (Philips) that works and is registered to /dev/video0, and I also installed a Hauppauge PVR350 card that also gets registered to various /dev/video<y> files. Why the Logitech cam won't register? I'm guessing I can't do anything until this cam has its own /dev/video<x>, right?
