Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Ringing Sound For Skype / Get That?

Jul 1, 2010

I installed skype, and all the sound works, except for the fact that it doesn't ring when someone calls me!!! All i see is a little pop up that says someone is calling me, but I cannot hear the ringtone. When i pick up, i hear the other end clearly, there's just no ringtone with someone calls me

Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype: Split Ringing And Calls To Headphone And Main Speaker On A Laptop?

Jun 3, 2010

I'm running 10.04 on a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 1505 laptop. Normally, when I plug my headphones in, all sound is diverted to them. I haven't found anything in sound preferences that changes this.(Under Sound Preferences, Output tab, there's a dropdown called Connector.It has options: "Analog Heaphones", "Analog Output" and "Analog Speakers" but they don't seem to make a difference.) I'd like to leave my headphones plugged in all day and setup my machine to play all sounds through my speakers (including Skype ringing), except Skype calls, which should play through my headphones. Skype has a feature to split the ringing and call sounds, i.e. play them on different devices, but the only option in each dropdown is "PulseAudio Server (local)".

Ubuntu :: Skype Not Ringing Through Speakers?

Apr 17, 2010

I fixed Skype to use the Microsoft Lifechat mic/headphones by stopping pulseaudio. All good now but none of the options in Skypes's Options->Sound Devices will get the phone to ring through the speakers. That has been an easy set up on our other machines.

8.04 LTS and Skype Whole reason for this is send SMS in this version of Skype but not previous ... BUT, this version insists on using Pulseaudio and gives no other options in Sound Devices (dumb design idea) and I and a lot of other folk couldn't get Skype happening with Pulse ..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype / No Incoming Call Sound?

Jul 14, 2010

I'm having a problem with Skype. Whenever someone calls me, the incoming call popup shows up, but I can hear no sound playing. Further, if I go in Options/Notifications and try to test the incoming call event, I'm having the same problem.

The .wav file exists and Skype can play it back. I have tested this by assigning that particular .wav to a different event, where it works as expected. Additionally, the other events, e.g. outgoing call, appear to be working normally. This would suggest, that the problem lies with the incoming call event, rather than the particular sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Select A Particular Sound Device?

Oct 1, 2010

i know skype on Linux is crap but i have no choice as i now have only Ubuntu installed on this pc & I NEED SKYPE.so with the new version how do i select a particular sound device.i ask because skype only lets me select a specific sound 'platform' (pulseaudio).i have a motherboard with on-board sound & a USB voip phone (us robotics) and it the usb voip phone i want to use solely for skype

so is there something i can tell pulse audio that i want skype to ONLY use the usb phone or do i have to use the stupid sound preferences to change the system wide device to the usb phone which makes the whole thing a hindrance because i have no idea when someone calls me & when i have to quickly change the settings then turn off music then try to answer the call the person calling has gone!!!i like to have music playing in the background out of my hifi & the error noises come out of the usb phone as well when this is selected & to be honest it makes having a pc setup with multiple devices pointless and a hindrance

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype No Sound No Chat No Call 11.04?

May 9, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 x32 Today I started Skype and I couldn't hear the Skype logging sound. Nevertheles I could see the contacts online. When I tried to write messages in the chat they couldn't receive them. When I tried to call nothing worked. After that it seemed that Skype was completely blocked. I clicked with the right button on the green icon of Skype and chose "quit" but it wouldn't close. 1 I logged off from Ubuntu and on again. I opened Skype. I made right click in the green icon and chose "Options"

2 I went to the "Sound Devices" menu in the left part of the window

3 I removed the tick for "Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels"

4 I closed Skype and opened it again and the sound problem was gone.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound Through Headphones With Skype

Jan 15, 2011

I've installed Skype on my Debian Lenny AMD64 system using method describe in [URL] . I also installed pulseaudio using aptitude, but not sure that this required.

I can sign in to Skyp, call out to my local phone number; phone rings. But I have no sound through my Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB headset and no sound is heard on the phone.

If I click on Applications/sound & video/pulseaudio volume control, I get:

Connection failed: Connection refused

1) Am I missing a configuration step? If so what do I need to do where?

2) If not configuration, is there another issue that needs to be resolved? What? Where?

3) Why do I see Connection refused when I clike on pulseaudio volume control?

Note: I tried to listen to npr, but no sound there either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Intermittently Stops Its Sound Connection?

Mar 9, 2010

On my Acer laptop, I have Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS and a static version of the Skype Beta 2.1, specifically version I recently made the upgrade to it from an earlier version because I needed to have the screensharing feature to work. Previously Screensharing from others was showing up in a tiny window I couldn't resize. But the Skype Beta 2.1 works fine regarding screensharing.

But the problem I'm having now is that the sound intermittently goes away, but only for Skype. It seems to go away if I walk away from my laptop for a long time. When this occurs, I cannot hear or record sound through Skype, but it works fine through other applications. If I shut Skype back down once it is in this failed state, and come back in, then it remains in this failed state. The only resolution is a reboot, and then it's fine again.

The only thing I can think might be the issue is the Gnome Power Manager, perhaps? I mean, my fan on my laptop spins down if I walk away for a long time, so I know some kind of laptop power management is engaging.

I tried following this guide:


And it suggested removing PulseAudio and using esound instead. Well, I tried that and rebooted, and my desktop wouldn't boot properly. So, I did CTRL+ALT+F2, logged in, and then did "sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop". All was well again, but unfortunately it brought back PulseAudio again.

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

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Mic In Skype Works Temporarily Only - Sound Very Chirpy

Dec 5, 2009

I have quite a strange problem with Skype and Opensuse. First problem was that when I used microphone on Audigy 4 (from some reason recognised as Audigy 2) the sound which people received from me was very chirpy. This problem was solved easily, I just turned my on-board sound system on and started using micorphone from integrated card. And here comes my weird problem. Microphone works all right, but only for short period. After some time after I start talking to someone on Skype the microphone turns itself off, but I can still hear my interlocutors. The only solution is to go to Yast and restart sound system or to restart whole computer, both of which are not real solutions, but well, they sort of work. I'm using Opensuse 11.2 x64.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype - Pulseaudio - Sound Output Or Input Does Not Work At All Doesn't Work

Sep 11, 2010

When I installed my 64 bit system of Ubuntu 10.04 the sound worked very well and I were very happy. The problem started however when I installed Skype which uses pulseaudio. As soon as I start skype (or any other application that uses pulse, HoN for example) the applications sound output or input does not work at all. If I have pulseaudio started in some way, applications that I suppose do not use it like spotify or flash player stops to produce sounds. And when I type "pulseaudio" in the terminal it gives me this:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype On Ubuntu 10.04 - Sound Devices - Recording Is "PulseAudio Server (local)" - Doesn't Work

May 22, 2010

I just installed skype 2.1 beta 2 (the deb file) from the skype website, but the only option I see under Sound Devices -> Recording is "PulseAudio Server (local)" This doesn't work for me, as the skype test calls don't actually record anything I say. I use skype a lot and FINALLY got it working under karmic, but I needed to upgrade to lucid and now it's broken.

When I open Sound preferences and look at the Applications section, Skype shows up as recording when I run its test call... but no sound is recorded? How is it possible that my sound card picks up something recording but doesn't actually record it when I'm in skype?

Ubuntu :: Crackling Sound On Skype 2.1 / Fix It?

May 4, 2010

I have installed Skype beta 2.1 on my ubuntu 9.04, everything works except the mic. All I get is noise (SSSHHHHH) when i try to use it. moreover Looking in volume control, no matter what volume I have the mic set to initially, as soon as I initiate a call the mic volume goes all the way to zero (then initiating that crackling staticky bug) and turning it back up doesn't work as the volume slider just slides back down. and also one of the mic channels (left or right, I can't remember) comes to zero and slowly the other follows it.

Ubuntu :: Skype Configuration - No Sound For Other Programs

Jan 4, 2010

I'm on Ubuntu Karmic, and running Skype -- since I couldn't get the latest version to work with my USB microphone. If I have Skype running, no other programs will produce sound (i.e. Amarok, VLC, flash in the browser, etc.). If any of those programs are active when I start Skype, Skype will fail to produce sound & won't work properly. Is there a way I can allow side-by-side usage of Skype and my other audio-producing programs, since all my other programs seem to get along just fine when it comes to sharing audio?

Audio Devices in Skype in case it will help:
Sound In: USB Device 0x471:0x311 (hw:U0x4710x311,0)
Sound Out: C-Media CMI8770 (plughw:CMI8770,0)
Ringing: C-Media CMI8770 (plughw:CMI8770,0)

Again, both my current Skype configuration & sound in general programs works on my system -- they're just not playing well with each other.

Ubuntu :: Upgrade To 10.04 And Strange With Skype Sound?

Sep 14, 2010

I've upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and everything works fine but. I use skype ( a lot and I can make calls and receive them as normal with normal mic/sound levels. When I get a notification the sound is so faint its almost inaudible. Clicking "Test sound" in notifications has the same effect - almost inaudible sounds (I thought they were not working at all until I turned the volume right up).

I tried completely removing and reinstalling skype through synaptic to no avail. All the Sound devices in skype are set to "PulseAudio Server (local)" - there are no other options coming up. "Make a test call" works fine and the skype sounds are all at the expected level. Real calls are fine too, so long as I notice them and respond. "Make a test sound" is silent.

Likewise, testing the event in Notifications plays the sound really quietly. Allocating different sounds makes no difference - the level is still really low so I can't work around the problem that way. Anyone know how I can correct the ringer volume without blowing out my eardrums on an actual call?

Ubuntu :: Skype (sound) Is Not Working Anymore

Nov 21, 2010

You really have to love this fantastic Ubuntu system which destroys your setup and programmes with an update.

It seems as though one of the updates made a mess of Skype this time. well done.

Ok so here is what's happening.

First i have to say that to get my sound card working i needed to upgrade ALSA. Everyhting was running fine until....NOW.

I haven't used Skype in a while but now i thought lets use it a bit. I start up Skype there is sound. but then suddenly sound is gone. video is just fine. sound is gone completelly from Skype. mic doesn't work and neither do spekers, eventhough upon launch everything works. i can't even do a test call. in fact i could do it once but the sound was messy.

also the skype seems to have crashed as i can't exit it at all. it's just keeps running as process.

anyone had something similar? any solutions? i would post this on Skype forums, but since Skype worked before and now it doesn't anymore i believe it is Ubuntu issue.

I am running Ubutnu 10.04.
