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?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Amarok2 Sound Lost When Other Sound Plays

Dec 29, 2009

openSUSE 11.2 64bit
libxine1 from Packman
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)

Maybe it's just an Amarok2 problem, but whenever another app (for example Konversation) plays a sound file, the audio instantly cuts out (in Amarok2) and will not come back unless I quit Amarok2 and restart it.

Amarok2 has only the options - "HDA ATI SB VT 1708S Analog" or "PulseAudio" (which is NOT installed).

Also I am totally confused by the mixer, it has so many knobs that I am totally lost!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound From Rhythmbox With Xfce / Get That?

Jan 18, 2011

I'm a fairly new Ununtu user who has just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Acer Aspire One D260, to get rid of my virus-ridden Windows and have mostly been happy with the results so far.

After a little experimentation, I decided that I preferred xfce over gnome and KDE as my window manager, but have encountered a little problem (actually it's a medium size problem) I don't get any sound from Rhythmbox It worked before perfectly with gnome but since I installed xfce, big silence when I try to play music.

Other applicatons such as Firefox and VLC produce sound perfectly, but when I try to play music in Rhythmbox, nothing comes out of the speakers. It appears to be playing normally with the progress bar moving normally.

I'm willing to use another music player if necessary but rhythmbox seems to be the most recommended one for linux and I liked it when it worked with gnome.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music CD Crashes Sound Juicer / RhythmBox

Mar 9, 2010

I have some seemingly interrelated issues with music CDs that I can't find threads about. Music CDs don't mount, they just spin for a bit then sit there. While a music CD is in the tray, sound juicer (Audio CD extractor) dies with a Segmentation fault. Rhythmbox dies too with this fault:

** (rhythmbox:3526): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed
** (rhythmbox:3526): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed
Segmentation fault
This only happens while a music CD is in the tray. All other times, the programs run fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Always Start Scanning Ext HDD For Sound Files

Jul 2, 2010

Whenever I start rhythmbox, it starts scanning my external HDD for sound files. There are 450,000+ sound files at least, and it won't import my music collection while it's doing this. Is there a way to stop this? Disconnecting or hiding the drive isn't an option as my music collection is in a folder on that drive, and there isn't enough space on my local HDD to store it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HD Video Playback - Video And Sound Frequently Get Out Of Sync

Oct 17, 2010

When I play large HD videos in mplayer, the video and sound frequently get out of sync, and the video plays a little strangely (occasionally speeding up and occasionally slowing down).

I think it's because mplayer is only running on a single core. As I've got a quad-core processor, it seems inefficient. I've seen that there is theoretically a way to get mplayer to work with multicore setups, but it requires compiling with different options. That'd take me a little while to work through.

Ideally there would be a pre-compiled version in the software centre, or a player which has support built in (again, ideally in the software centre). Is there such a thing available?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Hear Sound From Any Other Applications (Rhythmbox, Movie Player, Etc)?

Feb 28, 2010

I am having a problem when using Flash. Whenever I am listening to a Flash application (..... primarily), I am unable to hear sound from any other applications (Rhythmbox, movie player, etc).

The converse is also true, if I am using Rhythmbox, and then start ....., the video plays...but with no sound. I have to manually kill the app and web browser (tried multiple...Firefox, Chrome, Swiftfox) to get sounds working correctly. I am my wits end with this problem, and have just putting up with it for several months now.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost The Startup Sound?

Nov 30, 2010

The startup sound just desappeared. The Gnome Login Sound is still on the list of starting programs and the command is right (/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play id=desktop-login description=GNOME Login). What makes it more weird is, that it works fine on all other users. I started to suffer from this problem since I tried to change the sound (I have done it before with no problems). At the same time with changing the startup sound I installed PulseAudio volume control. Could these things have something doing with my startup sound desappearence?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Edited Xorg.conf And Lost All Video?

May 3, 2011

I have Natty Narwhal and everything was working. Then I moved it to my HDTV, and I had overscan issues. Following some advice I found online, I edited /etc/X11/xorg.conf with new information including a ModeLine.

Upon restart, I get my BIOS screen, the Ubuntu splash, then... nothing. The display goes to sleep. I can ping the computer, and everything seems to work except I have no video.

I did backup my xorg.conf file, but I don't know how to get to it without a display. Hindsight tells me I should have given myself a way to remotely control my computer before messing with xorg, but you live and learn.

I've read online that there is a way from the login screen to get to Terminal without loading the desktop environment, but I can't get to the login screen.

I've also tried using a Linux LiveCD to access my filesystem, and that works to view files, but I have no root privileges.

Is there...

...a way to get to Terminal without loading the login screen?

...a way to give myself root access to my harddrive from a LiveCD?

...something else to try?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Lost Amongst The Video Format Maze?

Aug 28, 2011

On inspection I find that my collection of video files is a mixture of .flv and .mp4 formats. The latter play OK on my A110 network media player but the latter do not. There is no sound from either but I think that is another problem as VLC works well on all of them.

My question assuming I cannot get the media player to play .flv files is should I convert to mp4 and will the HD files suffer as a result? If it is OK to convert, which program to use. My system is openSUSE 11.4 with KDE desktop.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost Sound After Change To Kernal?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changed Soundcard - Lost Sound

Apr 10, 2011

I'm having a bit of a furball trying to change a soundcard. I took out an Audigy card. KDE detected the removal of the old card and asked me if I wanted to remove the drivers. I said yes. I went into the bios and enabled the onboard sound. Now I've got no sound so I guess I've got some configuration to do. So far:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost Video Sync Connection At Login (gdm Start)

Jan 23, 2011

I recently purchased a new motherboard and processor to replace an existing system. I transferred the video card. OS remains the same, Ubuntu 10.10 x64. Video worked fine in the first system (eVGA motherboard, Intel E6600 CPU, 4GB RAM), but the old motherboard had a SATA controller issue. New system: Gigabyte GA-890FXA-UD5, AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb, 8GB RAM

Transferred hardware:
Graphics: eVGA nVidia 8800GT,
Monitor 0: Hanns-G JW199D 1440x900@60Hz
Monitor 1: Gateway FPD1975W 1440x900@60Hz

The Problem:

1. Fresh OS install, everything starts up as expected, login, etc.
2. I use the Additional Drivers link from the menu and select the recommended nVidia driver and enable it.
3. After reboot, the following things happen:
3a. BIOS
3b. Ubuntu startup scripts
3c. Ubuntu logo with spinning dots
3d. Monitor goes black
3e. Monitor notifies it has lost sync

I believe 3d is where I would normally get the login dialog. I can use failsafe mode, but everything I've tried to fix the graphics display hasn't worked. I've even tried to load the latest nVidia driver, nvidia-config, nvidia-settings, etc. There are some options I've tried where the nvidia-x command returns "can't find device". I've tried to modify the xorg.conf file, to no success.

Any ideas what I can do to resolve the error? I'm not that strong on the xorg.conf file, but all I've read is that it's not too necessary anymore. Though, it was modified in my old system to get Twinview working. I've looked through a bunch of log files, but I may not have been looking in the correct log file.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Lost Video Thumbnail Preview In Dolphin

Mar 28, 2010

After I manually installed multimedia codecs, like w32codecall, I got Linux to play movies and I also got thumbnail previews of them in Dolphin. However, I noticed that recently Dolphin doesn't display my thumbnails anymore. I don't quite recall whether the any video player could use my installed codecs, at least xine works. The only thing that could have caused that is actually the automatic system updates I received. I still have my multimedia codecs installed, but Dolphin doesn't show the movie previews anymore.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Lost HDMI Sound With New Vid Card

Jun 14, 2011

The old Nvidia GT220 recently died in my HTPC and I replaced it with a new GT430. Sound over HDMI worked beautifully with the old card (after much trial & error,) but has now stopped working with the new card.Forgot to mention that everything appears to be unmuted in alsamixer. When I run "aplay -D plughw:1,3 /usr/share/ sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav" I get no sound. I do however get sound from the headphone jack when I do the same command for the onboard sound card (0,0)
