Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Output But Device Shows Up In Sound Prefs?

May 8, 2011

I have a fresh install of Natty and i'm having some issues getting sound to work. My laptop has a built in sound card which works just fine. However, i also have a usb 5.1 sound card which isn't working at all. Both devices show up in 'Sound Preferences' but when i select the 5.1 device as the output device sound doesnt work. I ran the alsa-info.sh script and the output can be found here.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Drops From Hardware Tab Of Sound Prefs?

Mar 14, 2010

I just did a complete reinstall of my dualboot system hoping it was user error that caused my audio problems, but the issue has followed me to this install. This tells me that is probably application based.

my Via VT1708/A device tends to disappear from my system. it started shortly after setting up TVTime.When i restart the system my usb headset and vt1708 show up ok, but after a while the vt1708 will disappear and i can't get sound to pipe from the cd line to the usb headset. this makes watching tv a no joy situation.i checked my syslog and found this:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NO Sound - NO Device - Dummy Output Stereo

May 6, 2010

I have updated my Ubuntu to Lucid 10.04 from 9.10.

Although my sound disappeared in 9.10 only, I thought maybe upgrading might help, but there is no change.

I guess everything is installed fine.

But still aplay -l command shows "NO sound cards.. "

Moreover the sound preferences shows no hardware, no input and a dummy stereo output.

I have banged my head a lot trying various things written in forums and all but no success.

One more thing : When I test "osstest" , I get sound in both the earphones , but altogether there is no sound. I am very much confused.

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 :: 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 :: 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

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.

Hardware :: No Sound On Headphone's Jack - Normal Sound Output OK?

Feb 16, 2009

I have installed Fedora 10-x86_64. I was happy and content with the distribution. Earlier, I found that there is no sound on my headphone's jack where as the normal sound output from my laptops's speakers is OK. I fiddled with the available mixers but couldnt get anything. There seem to be 5 different mixers (HDA, ALSA, OSS), 3 for the playback and 2 for the capture.

I am using an acer 4530 laptop. It has a nvidia Nforce MCP77 chipset. and the o/p lsmod| grep snd :

Ubuntu Multimedia :: LMMS Produces No Sound Output

Jan 1, 2010

I installed LMMS 0.4.5 on my computer (Ubuntu 9.10), but I'm getting no sound output from the program on ALSA, and whenever I try one of the other options (PulseAudio, OSS, etc.) it reverts to dummy audio. I tried installing JACK to correct the problem, but JACK seems to be giving errors and quitting, and in the past I've always used ALSA for LMMS and it's worked just fine.The problem is local to LMMS, even after a reinstall. My audio output is fine for all other programs I've tested the problem for so far.Also, I just noticed that my instances of LMMS are not being terminated after the windows are being closed...

Notable system info:

Ubuntu 9.10 x86 (kernel 2.6.31-16-generic) installed via Wubi
LMMS 0.4.5 (installed via Ubuntu Software Centre)
3.06 GHz Pentium IV (it looks like dual core)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Vkeybd To Output Sound In Karmic?

Jan 17, 2010

I installed the vkeybd program to easily create some tunes, but when i push any of the keyboard buttons no sound comes out. I do have sound in programs like vlc. I thought jack and timidity may have something to do with it, but starting and clicking on things in those programs didnt get me anywhere because I dont have much understanding about them. How do I get a sound to come out of my speakers when i press a button in vkeybd?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Output Redirects To Input

Jun 9, 2011

For some reason my soundcard is recording every playback sound. This become apparent when I was trying to make a Skype call and the other people couldn't hear me. I checked my sound preferences and noted that the input was recording what they say (they could hear an echo). Also if I played back anything it would redirect to them. This has never happened to me and I've made a lot of calls in the past.

I tested with Audacity and it records fine, but when I play back the recording, it redirects to the input channel so it's not a problem with Skype. (my soundcard is a VIA VT1708B 8-Ch). Somewhere I read that the output of aplay -l is useful.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound - Input Or Output - But Not Both - Though It Used To Work?

I used to be able to use Skype without a problem. I must have played with something as it now doesn't allow me to both use a microphone and external speakers at the same time.I go into sound setting and I am able to test the microphone (works) but then the speakers don't show, if I reverse the tests then the opposite happens.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: EarCandy Broke Sound Output In 11.04?

Jun 19, 2011

I have had a problem with none of the microphone inputs working after upgrading to Ubuntu 11,04 64-bit on my Toshiba A665 laptop with 4-core Phenon processor. This includes the internal mic, mic jack and Logitec C610 webcam. All worked before upgrading to 11.04. The broken mic input means no Skype calls.Today I noticed that there was an application called EarCandy that is suppose to add functionality to PulseAudio, so I installed it to see if the auto-detect features would fix my mic problem.

EarCandy completely broke the two apps I tested: Skype and RadioTray. Now neither will output sound. The Ubuntu start-up desktop sound scheme also quit. So it seems that EarCandy killed all sounds that heard while it was briefly installed.How do I get sound output back on Skype and RadioTray? how to fix my mic input issue?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 - Speakers And Headphones Output Sound Simultaneously?

I tried updating the Linux audio modules as per this page but to no avail.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) on my own custom built desktop, which for what it's worth, contains this motherboard.
