Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound - Aplay Gives Nothing - Lspci Shows Soundcard

Apr 4, 2011

I have had on and off problems with my sound for quite some time now. Each time it would stop working, I would find a fix which would work for a month or so, then I would go back to having no sound. I have had consistent sound on my Windows partition, so I don't think something is wrong with the hardware. The first fix I used was using "sudo alsa force-reload" to get ALSA working again. The latest fix I used was to add the line "options snd-hda-intel model=toshiba" to alsa-base.conf, which worked up until now. My built-in computer speakers won't make any sound, nor will my external monitors when they are plugged into the headphone jack. I do get sound when I plug in a pair of USB headphones.

I have tried using the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solution Guide [url], but I run into a predicament...

aplay -l (with or without being root) gives...



Alsamixer isn't much help either. It shows the name of my card in the top left, but there are no sliders to adjust.

I've tried compiling the modules from source, reinstalling through Synaptic, and plenty of other things, to no avail. Ubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite U305-S5107

Fedora Hardware :: No Soundcard Detected (aplay -l Returns No Sounddevices)?

Dec 15, 2010

My sound was working quite fine with Fedora 13 (Internal Audio) until I decided that I want to install the appropriate driver from the vendor's website.

Ubuntu Networking :: Broadcom Wireless Shows Up In Lspci - Nowhere Else ?

May 8, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 fresh install 64bit. Wireless was working in 9.10, now does not even show up in restricted drivers. Installed bcwl-kernel-source, and b43-fwcutter. ifconfig, iwconfig only show eth0 and lo - no wlan

Other restricted drivers show up - using NVIDIA driver with Compiz running better than ever on 2 screens

Here is the output from the collectNWData script found at [url]

I do notice that in the firmware section that both b43 and b43legacy are listed. Somewhere I reads that I should be using b43 - not the legacy version. Should it be blacklisted?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Record Sound From Soundcard In 11.04?

Jul 25, 2011

I was, untill very recently, using ubuntu 10.10, and have just upgraded. In Ubuntu 10.10, I was easily able to record sound from my sound card in audacity. For whatever reason, since upgrading I have been unable to do so. I have no problem recording sound from my laptop's microphone, but can't seem to find an option to record from the sound card. I believe it's the same version of Audacity, so all I can assume is that it's an Ubuntu issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Realtek ALC 883 Soundcard Recognized But No Sound

May 28, 2010

I have an MSI S420 with a realtek alc883 onboard. I upgraded from ubutu 8.04 to 10.4 recently, The sound worked in 8.04 although the mic did't work and the same thing in 8.10 (i went through all upgrades) it stopped working at all in 9.04 onwards.

If i did Lspci -v it did say the name of my card, ( I unmuted all in alsamixer and got the codecs but even a test soud won't work) I also dowloaded a driver from Realtek itself, that didn't work.

Then I edited alsabace.conf some more. I tried every one that could possily be it at [URL] including all that said MSI.

I then tried Lordraidens comprehensive sound guide from step 1 to step 5, I used the module-assistant and istalled a driver that was called "hda-realtek-codec" or so. It was the only appropriate one on the list.

I also run into someoe with thesame problem. [URL]

i think ill give up and use the 8.10 that is still on a other partition

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 :: Get Sound To Loop From Digital Input On Soundcard To Analog Speakers?

Nov 23, 2010

Alright, just installed maverick, got the sound to work great on the 7.1 with pulseaudio. works great in movies, and everything else just wonderfully. the only thing i am stumped by is how to get the sound to loop from my digital input on my soundcard to my analog speakers also on the same soundcard. i know the sound feed works on the input as the makeshift VU meter/bar on my digital input in the sound preferences moves, but i can't get the sound to actually come through on my speakers.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound From External USB Soundcard (Novation X-Station 25) Not Being Captured Properly?

Aug 4, 2011

I have an X-Station 25 synth, which has worked fine in the past on Ubuntu. Recently made a fresh install on Xubuntu, and for whatever reason, I'm getting no sound coming out when I just select USB audio.If I go into Sound Preferences, I can see the device. I can even select it for sound input. Hell, if I press some keys on the keyboard, I can see some of the squares on the input level go green.Evidently, there IS sound coming in via the USB connection, and Audacity is capable of recording it.

However, the only way of hearing it is by putting headphones directly into the unit and listening to the monitor output signal. The audio coming in, as detected, is not being played from my laptop speakers/headphones.Am I just missing something here, and that's MEANT to be the only way to hear the audio out?In alsamixer, there are no controls for the Xstation, and nothing seems to be muted. I've upgraded the firmware to the most recent version as well.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Spectrum3D - Software That Shows Harmonics Of Sound

May 5, 2011

I'd like to introduce Spectrum3d, a new software that displays harmonics of the sound in 3D with OpenGL for Ubuntu. Audio source can be the microphone or an audio file, and it is Jack (jack-audio-connection-kit) compatible in option. Optionally, it can be run in real-time when not running with Jack; also optionally, it can receive multitouch input (either from touchscreen, or from touchpad). X represents frequencies, Y represents amplitude of each frequencies and Z represents time.

The perspective can be changed either by rotating or by translating the display around or along the 3 axis without limitations. Here is a quick link to a demo video : [URL]. It can be found here : [URL]. And here is a link to a tutorial explaining how it works : [URL]. It is free and under GPL license. It uses the Gtk+, SDL, OpenGL, Gstreamer and uTouch-Geis free libraries. It works on Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and 11.04, but should work on other distributions also. Multitouch input however has not been tested on 10.04. It is still beta; testers are welcome.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Aplay Does Not Play Some Wav Files?

Jan 28, 2010

My audio is working on my recent koala install. System wav files play without a problem.

However, when I open a terminal to play my own wav files I get an error. (I encountered this problem merely by trying to setup an incoming mail notification with CheckGmail....)

The command: aplay /home/saskms/Music/test.wav

The error: aplay: test_wavefile:807: can't play WAVE-file format 0x0002 which is not PCM or FLOAT encoded

I think I have installed all the necessary gstreamer options. I am guessing that maybe I just need to re-rip the WAV file into a different format. I also tried doing searches on the error, but yielded no results.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio - Aplay And Speaker-test Gets Nothing At All ?

Feb 4, 2011

I installed Xubuntu to a flashdrive using unetbootin. Since I only have a 2GB drive I installed Fluxbox instead of XFCE to save space. I install alsa-utils to try to get some audio going. aplay and speaker-test gets nothing at all. Both as sudo and a reg user. I have turn up the volume on everything in alsamixer. I believe the relevant drivers are loaded.

Ubuntu :: Sound: Mic Doesn't Work - Audio Input Level Graphically Shown In Sound Preferences Shows No Fluctuations In Sound

Aug 3, 2010

I was just using the mic and watched it stop working suddenly. I was in the middle of a skype test call when the graphical mixer level died down to zero in the middle of the call. When the test call was played back, the first part sounded fine then the sound got lower until it became inaudible. Since then I can't get any sound from my mic in skype.

Also, the audio input level graphically shown in Sound Preferences shows no fluctuations in sound as it used to before. The input device is enabled. I tried using Sound Recorder to record some sound clips and that worked fine. So the mic is working but Sound Preferences and Skype seem to have the mic level really low. I'm not sure what else to think considering it was working perfectly a few minutes ago. I've tried restarting, but that didn't fix it either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: LSPCI Reports Wrong Video RAM Size

Jun 11, 2010

I am running ubuntu 10.04 with the fglrx driver installed with apt-get. I have an ATI Radeon HD AGP with 512MB of video ram. My bios window size is 64MB. The Xorg.0.log file shows that 512MB is recognized. I also tried checking the /proc/mtrr file and it shows two values one I believe is my ram size which looks to be correct at 1.5GB the other is 512MB which I think is my video ram size, but when I do an lspci -v the video ram size shows 256MB. I am trying to run Doom 3 and it only allows me to use 256MB of memory.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ASROCK 330 ION And GeForce 7300GS - Lspci Cannot Detect Both?

Jul 7, 2010

I installed a secondary Nvidia GeForce7300GS 256 PCIe video card in an ASROCK ION 330 motherboard. The idea is to provide an S-video output. The interesting bit is that lspci shows only one of the two cards. If I set the ION video adaptor primary in BIOS, then lspci will detect only ION, if I set the PCIe video card then lspci will detect the GeForce 7300GS. I'd like to write my own xorg.conf, but how can I refer to drivers without the pci bus address?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Sound After Installation Of New Soundcard?

Mar 25, 2010

Recently I installed a new soundcard to my computer, and I don't have any sound anymore in Linux. Now I have in YaST two sound chips, one AC97 and my soundcard Asus Xonar Essence STX. Obviously Linux detected my soundcard since the custom driver called "Virtuoso" is there. However, my soundchip has still the slot 0, and my soundcard is not configured yet. And here I'm stuck, because:

1. when I tried to delete the AC97 entry, YaST hangs (actually y2base or something like that, the sound subprogram). Alternatively, I tried to just disable the driver, but this wasn't possible (unlike with Windows, where you just click a checkbox).

2. when I tried to configure my new soundcard, the configuration program got stuck again - with every of the three alternatives (fast setup, normal setup and custom setup or so).

I also tried whether the old soundchip is still working, plugging in my headphone into the output of the AC97 soundchip, but I didn't hear anything, so system sound really seems to be broken.

Ubuntu :: ALSA Oddities And No Sound After Soundcard Change In Natty?

Jul 2, 2011

I've just bought myself a E-MU 1820M audio interface for use in home recording after seeing online that a number of people have managed to get it working. The card replaces a Terratec DMX 6Fire (which i only managed to get outs from, no in's). I have done everything and anything suggested all on the forums and websites i can find and still no in's or out's at all, and no lights on the dock functioning.

Having tried and failed on a number of things i decided to see if Alsamixer had picked it up, only to be shown a blank grey window with nothing showing. I purged ALSA and started again (I have even done a fresh install of natty in case it was anything else getting in the way that i had done previously) but to no avail. I am using ALSA driver 1.0.24, which is the latest version, and according to the ALSA website, the EMU support was addded in post-1.0.15, so all should be well.

Fedora :: Audacity Unable To Record Sound From Soundcard

Jul 6, 2011

I'm running Fedora 15 XFCE spin, Audacity 1.3.13-beta and my sound is ALSA/Pulseaudio (I'm not totally sure what these are anyway, are they drivers?) Anyway, when I'm in Audacity and I go to the record options I can choose from default, pulse, and HDA ATI SB:ALC268 Analog (hw:0,0). If I try any of these three options and press record I get static. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like to press record for each of the three options in order.


The last option won't even record nothing, it just doesn't work. Also, if you look where the little picture of the microphone is, the option to drag the input volume is greyed out.

Ubuntu :: Sound Doesn't Work In Wine - X-fi Card No Shows Up In The Sound Control Panel

Sep 26, 2010

In ubuntu 10.04 my X-fi Fatal1ty Titanium sound card worked for my speakers but I had to use onboard sound for the mic. When I installed 10.10 the sound card no longer works at all so I have to run the speakers through the onboard sound.

The second problem I have is that Skype will not pick up my microphone all other programs seem to be able to record from the microphone just fine but skype does not. Ive tried selecting all the different input device options from the skype settings but none of them seem to work.

EDIT: Sound doesn't work at all in wine.

EDIT2: The X-fi card no longer shows up in the sound control panel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: App Hijacks Soundcard?

Mar 28, 2010

An application I am trying to get going on 9.10 takes over my soundcard whenever I run it. I hear a small pop from the speakers and then no application can play sound after that.

The program is: springlobby
My soundcard is: Onboard sound (Asus M4N68T-M motherboard)

I have posted on the application's forum but it seems most of the posters are developers and the advice goes a bit over my head.

Quote: old versions of SL uses SDL audio to access the sound card, make sure SDL audio is set to use alsa+dmix or pulseaudio, if it's set to OSS or alsa with direct card access, it will lock the sound card

if it's a recent version, everything i said applies instead for openal.I have removed pulseaudio but this is not the cause of my problem as it was the same before removal.full thread is here: http:[url]....
