Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Since Clean Karmic Install?
Feb 21, 2010
Acer travelmate 4200, had no sound since a full install (not upgrade) of Karmic. Sound has worked in all previous incarnations of Ubuntu. When I try to play Audio CD I can hear a click from the speakers but only silence after that. CD plays OK if booted in XP or Win7. Output from aplay -l

I've just done a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 after using 8.10 for a couple of years. (I have to say that after 2 years, the problems I encountered when first installing 8.10 remain in 10,04 but now with additional sound problems !) I use an Acer Aspire 5720 and sound *WORKED* under 8.10 fine. Now I have done a clean install of 10.04 all I get are the bongos at the login then nothing. I can't play any sound files etc. The card is recognised but something is wrong. Here are the results of some commands I have given :

I just installed karmic on my media server. With Jaunty, everything worked fine. I tried an upgrade, and go no sound. After poking around in the forms and trying some solutions still no sound.
So I decided to try a fresh install, again, no sound. I have cheched the obvious, mixer volumes, mute, output device, etc. But I can't seem to get it to work. I poked around in the forms and I've tried many of the solutions, but still no luck.
Here is my lspci output for my sound device...
00:07.0 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP72XE/MCP72P/MCP78U/MCP78S High Definition Audio (rev a1) Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 8345 Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 20 Memory at fcf78000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
I've just installed Karmic and get an Out Of Range message on my monitor when starting.I had to use the alternate install in order to get Karmic on there in the first place.I have an Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS, and a BenQ FP767-12 TFT.
Output of lspci;01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G73 [GeForce 7600 GS] (rev a2)Not sure how to get my xorg.conf as I can only get to a shell. Here are (what I think are) the important bits;
I installed Lucid (clean install after several attempts at upgrading from Karmic failed), and I have an Intel 8xx video card. I was able to get Lucid installed by adding "xforcevesa" into the command line at startup. Now I would like to try changing my computer away from Vesa and seeing if I can try to get the i915 driver working.
That being said, I cannot figure out where to go to change my kernel boot configurations. Every tutorial I've found refers me to /boot/grub/menu.lst which I cannot find. Ever since I moved from Karmic to Lucid, I've regretted it as it seems like all the How-To documentation is no longer valid, everything has been changed and moved around.
I don't know why it is dumping me onto Vesa, or why my stupid driver was blacklisted; everything was working fine under Hardy, Jaunty, and Karmic. Why problems now? Does anyone know how I can get into my boot setings and replace "xforcevesa" with something that will make the intel driver work?
From time to time, system booted with no sound and I had to restart system to have it on again. Now I have no sound all the time and no idea where lies the problem. I would like to ask for help in making a diagnose of what could be the cause that there is no sound in my system.There is no error message while booting system. No explicit sound driver. Sound isn't muted. Sound works when using Ubuntu Live.
After i upgraded to karmic i experienced that the sound of spotify was at times strange. When i started a new song there was some strange plucking sounds, can most be understood as the sound a old LP-player makes when there is dust on the record. Not much but more than enough that I can hear it and wish it wasn't there. After some time of playing the songs sometimes was totally distorted by "disturbance" and it became impossible to even hear that there was a song there. Like when you are out of reception of a radio channel.
I did some research and upgraded to the wine1.2 with "custom" pulsaudio drivers. Then the total distortion was gone, but the, always present, plocking sound still was there. I have tested adjusting PCM volume, have some volume on mono, upgrading to newer pulsaudio drivers. The same problem is when ever my dear computer i producing sound. Spotify,firefox, rythmbox and mplayer. I can't see any answers after spending some time on google. I hoped i could fix this without deleting and removing pulsaudio.
I've been using windows xp (I play chess in the chessbase server) and Ubuntu in dual boot for quite a long time with no problems. My onboard sound worked perfectly in both OS. Then I decide to buy a SB Audigy PCI sound card. It works great in Ubuntu, but there was no sounds in windows. After doing a lot of research, I read that a clean install could solve the problem. I reinstalled windows xp and the sound drivers of the sound card and alas! the sound card worked.
Then I restored grub to access Ubuntu and when I reboot to windows...I got no sounds again. So, my conclusion is that in some way the Ubuntu installation affects the sound card when working in windows. I may return this sound card. The sound card is: Creative Labs SB0570L4 Sound Blaster Audigy SE Sound Card I'm running windows xp 64 bit and ubuntu 9.10 64 bit.
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?
The title pretty much says it all, the sound on this system was working fine until I ran the upgrade to Lucid. I've tried everything in the standard troubleshooting guide, the sticky threads and plenty of forum searches but so far I've come up with nada. For some reason Ubuntu refuses to see my soundcard, no matter how much I twist and tweak it. It's an Asus M3A78 motherboard with an on-board Realtek ALC1200 chip (snd-hda-intel). Here's most of the relevant output, hopefully someone can easily spot what's going on because I'm getting snow-blind staring at the monitor. code...
I had taken a long break from Ubuntu, but now I'm back on it. I just installed 9.10 Karmic on my Lenovo Thinkpad R61i, and it's beautiful....except there's no sound.
I have gone through the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide, to no avail. As well, I have searched the all of the Internets, and still have no sound.
Here is some system info:
Code: tomdabomb2u@tomdabomb2u-thinkpad:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: CONEXANT Analog [CONEXANT Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 code....
I also added options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad to the end of my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file. Still nothing. I would really like to hear the Antoine Dodson song on my laptop...not sure how much longer I can go.
Note: Everything in Sound Preferences appears to be working, I just still can't HEAR anything.
I had sound in Jaunty, and I just upgraded to Karmic, and everything else is working 100% ok. Except for sound. I have no sound at all if I use any other driver than OSS. I have pulseaudio installed but it doesn't recognize my sound card.
The sound doesn't play through the main speakers, but instead plays through the subwoofer on the bottom of the laptop. The headphone/mic jacks don't work either. I've listed the relevant lspci -v code in my other thread, but I'm not sure what other information is needed (like I'm trying to find the exact sound card I have so I can google around for a solution but since everything in laptops is so specialized I don't really know what to look for).
I do apologize if this question has somehow been answered elsewhere but I've waited 2+ weeks for a response and have gotten nothing. Also, I tried following this sticky thread but the link it refers to in step (3) under general help does not work, so I cannot proceed with any of the directions.
I am anxious to resolve this problem as I just discovered compiz-fusion and it just makes it even more fun to be loaded into my Ubuntu install, and I'm anxious to make the full-time transition to Ubuntu but I won't be able to do that if I can't play music.
I am running 64-bit (version 9.10) on a VMWare workstation. I am having an issue with my sound card. This is the message that I get when I start the VM:A device ID has been used that is out of range for your system. Sound will be disconnected I am running Vista-64 as my host OS. I know it might be easy to blame this on Windows, but I also have an XP guest OS and sound works fine there, so it is definitely an Ubuntu related issue.
I have recently moved to 9:10 and I found some problems with the sound card Intel. Reading some posts I managed to partially solve the problem and now I hear the music perfectly but only from the headphones: but I need to "unflug" external amplifier in gnome-alsa-mixer each time I reboot otherwise I not even feel the headphones
I just installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my laptop then immediately upgraded to Karmic 9.10. Pulseaudio installed by default. There's no sound although the mute button is not checked and the volume slide control is at medium. lspci gives:
00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies IXP SB4x6 Hi Definition audio controller (rev01)
System >Preferences >Sound >Hardware tab: blank window "choose a device to configure" Output tab: "dummy" output stereo
So, it appears that somehow the audio device controller in my laptop is not recognized or its driver disabled, possibly by pulseaudio. Sound works fine in Windows 7 part of this dual-booted laptop.
I am burning an ISO of Ubuntu 9.10 amd 64 desktop edition. I am using the same operating system but need to burn the ISO to do a clean install.
My Specs: Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic) AMD Turion(tm) II Ultra Dual-Core Mobile L2 Cache 1024 4 GIG Ram Cd-drive: Hp DVDRAM GT20L

videos videos work great, but unfortunately, when i try to access videos on hulu.com, i receive this error message: "we're sorry but we're unable stream this video to your system. this may be due to an adobe software limitation on 64-bit linux systems."
this is strange because hulu videos were working after i installed lynx but mysteriously stopped working. i don't have the swfdec-mozilla package installed nor the mozilla-plugin-gnash nor the flashplugin-installer.
what do i need to do to start clean and install the necessary packages?
1 - Make a clean install of Squeeze. 2- Upgrade to sid 3- Run this command after installing xserver:
aptitude install kdm kde-10n-es kdebase
Then aptitude installs kdm, kdebase... and brasero, metacity, gvfs, gnome-control-center, evolution... (¿?) I only want to install KDE, why aptitude also install all this gnome crap ? And I say crap because I only want to install the KDE desktop, I use Gnome in my laptop =/ If you uncheck install recommends in aptitude you can make a clean KDE install.
How do I install WinTv pvr-250 (Tv-card) on my ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala? I am new to linux and not quite sure to begin. I would like to be able to use it to watch TV on my computer, using VLC, mythTV or similar.
I have a fresh install of Karmic and get the occasional skipping when I play files through amarok.If a play a CD through Rythmbox the sound is ok, so I don't think its got anything to do with pulseaudio. Could it be the xine backend?
I have read numerous posts about this subject, but being a novis in the Linux field, I cannot say that without explicit step by step instructions I am able to repair or tinker with anything under Ubuntu. In short, my sound has ceased to function. It did work for a period of time and suddenly no more. I have a 64 bit version of Ubuntu 9.1.
The sound is an onboard Realtek AC97 chip on my motherboard. It worked absolutely fine on my 9.04 Jaunty setup. My machine is dual boot with Windows XP and the sound is fine on XP, so it's not a hardware issue. Karmic seems to think there is no audio device present at all, which is obviously not the case.This is an AMD 64-bit machine running the x64 edition, although I doubt that has anything to with the problem. Everthing else in the installation went perfectly and the GNOME desktop seems significantly quicker too.
