Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Keeps Losing Settings Every Reboot?

Jan 4, 2010

My system (Ubuntu 9.10 Gnome Desktop) keeps 'forgetting' my sound settings. every day I have to go into sound preferences and select a different hardware device setting and then change it back to the right one in order for it to work. For instance my sound goes out of my onboard intel based sound via optical to my amp and so the hardware setting for this is IEC598 output + analog stereo input But everytime I boot their is no sound (and hence no light coming through the optical cable) so then I'll change it to Analog surround and the light comes out so then I can change it back to the 1st setting and it works again. Hope that makes sense, I have had this problem and also my video settings have been 'forgotten' and samba also won't work ever since about 4 days ago when the system updated, everything was working fine before that (i have run update manager since and everything is up to date)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound. How To Restore Default Sound Driver/settings

Jun 10, 2010

I have no sound, is it possible to restore the default sound drivers/settings in 10.04?It was work well before except for one issue, I couldn't get mic in for Rosetta Stone using wine. I have followed so many howto's to try and get Rosetta Stone working and then my sound working again.I think this is my main problem I upgraded alsa to "alsa-driver-1.0.23". I could easily be wrong about that assumption though.I have a Dell XPS M1210Ubuntu 10.04 64bitI think this is my sound card, "lspci -v | less"00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)Subsystem: Dell Device 01d7Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 11 Memory at efffc000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]Capabilities: <access denied> Kernel modules: snd-hda-intelBut I don't think it is being recognized,

Debian Multimedia :: Settings Were Not Saving Through Reboot

Sep 9, 2010

Initially, Debian detected my M-Audio soundcard right off, and things were going great, until I tried to get a Logitech webcam working. Got video going, but no audio, so I installed cheese, alsa-base and alsa-utils, and played around with settings according to copious forum threads dedicated to the problem of Linux and webcams, all to no avail. Then I had NO SOUND, until I did a alsa-conf, which detected and (re)set my M-Audio card, until reboot, then again, NO SOUND. Settings were not saving through reboot.

So I purge removed alsa-base and alsa-utils, hoping that things would magically revert to pre-webcam experiment. Still no sound. I have given up on the webcam idea; I'll use my XP Pro laptop for that. But I need sound on this Linux box. Oh and when I'm playing ....., etc. the soundcard itself is making chatter noises to the beat of the music. This soundcard was working perfectly before I started the webcam debacle, so it's not a hardware issue.

Ubuntu Networking :: Manager Losing All Settings On 11.04 64 Bit

I found several threads addressing a similar problem, but neither of the remedies suggested there worked. So I decided to start a new thread.

For now, I have made a custom /etc/resolv.conf.old and every time I log in, I have to manually do

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Cuts Out Until I Reboot / What To Do?

Aug 19, 2010

I've recently upgraded to 10.04, and never had any problems in 9.10, but now, sometimes when Banshee attempts to play a sound file, it will kill my sound output until I reboot. Haven't been able to get anywhere by fiddling with ALSAmixer or the like, and everything is just fine on reboot, but the files don't always cause problems, and they were all fine back in 9.10. Has anyone else encountered this? I've been unable to find any other references to this problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound After Upgrade And Reboot (11.04)

Jun 14, 2011

The sound stopped working, supposedly after upgrade and reboot (although the last upgrade was Gimp updates, as far as I remember). I rebooted the computer, then tried to play a sound and nothing came out of the speakers. The sound card (CA0106 Soundblaster) is detected, I can still adjust sound level and all the settings, but no sound is produced.

I tried running ALSA in terminal (as suggested by some comments in threads that I googled) and un-muting the speakers, but they were already un-muted.

I've also updated the Kernel to 2.6.39 just to see if this is a Kernel bug and if this might help, but it didn't. Also not a hardware problem (works in Windows).

Ubuntu :: Upgrade Without Losing All Current Settings And Applications?

Aug 2, 2011

I am still running Ubuntu 10.04 still on my laptop and would like to upgrade. Is there a way to do this without losing all my current settings and applications? I guess I'm mostly trying to avoid having to do a fresh install. Also, is there a way to setup my update manager to just prompt me for an upgrade any time there is a new stable version of Ubuntu available?

Hardware :: Gpointing-device-settings Settings Will Not Stay After Reboot?

Oct 18, 2009

I am running a debian squeeze machine on a ibm t40 laptop with window maker as my window manager. I am using gpointing-device-settings as a program to get the scroll bar on my touch pad working. unfortunately, I can't get the settings to stick after i shutdown and turn on. I have to go into the program and unclick then reclick the button. i'm using version 1.3.2 (ive tried both deb and source versions). does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? and if there is any configure files that I could configure instead of having to use the gui program.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Settings Resetting

Dec 10, 2010

10.10 x64. This did not occur before I dist-upgraded from 10.04.I use a USB headset that has always "just worked," as long as I have it selected under both Input and Output in Sound Preferences.Now, periodically I'll hear a pop in my headset, the music/sound will mute for a second, and then come back louder. What's happening is that in Sound Preferences, the default selections are being reset. The sound comes back louder because of my volume settings. Additionally, on boot I run a script to set a few keybindings I use for Ventrilo. When all of this happens, I have to run this script again to get the bindings back.

To fix it, I have to go into sound preferences, select my headset in both Input and Output, fiddle with the volume so it returns to normal, and then rerun my binding script.My first guess was that the headset's connection is "farting", like it'd do a disconnect/reconnect, and Ubuntu deals with it by selecting visible hardware. But I can't for the life of me reproduce it. It just happens randomly.I guess it's possible that the script's issue is related to ventrilo/wine, and not a direct result of this sound issue. I'm mentioning it in case it isn't.I reproduced it by pulling the USB cable out and putting it back in. So there's either a short or Ubuntu is resetting the USB port periodically. Does it drop ports like that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Settings Are Not Saved?

May 7, 2011

I am running a dedicated audio PC (Ubuntu 10.04 on Intel Atom 525) with a Juli@ sound card. I had everything set up and working great up until I accidentally pulled the sound card out of its slot while the computer was running. After that, the computer no longer recognized the Juli@ card.

I managed to fix the basic problem by following the Comprehensive Sound Problem Solution Guide- deleting and reinstalling ALSA is what did the trick. The only problem remaining is that the computer no longer remembers the output settings in the Sound Preferences dialog. The setting stays for as long as the computer is on, but as soon as I turn it off and reboot it, the sound output setting reverts back to the internal audio. I tried 'sudo alsactl store 1', but this does not work. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Revert To Default Sound Settings

Oct 25, 2010

Since I installed the system-wide equalizer I've been having some problems with my sound system. The problem is it has changed some system settings (visible in gconf) and after I uninstall it, I can't change any sound settings, except the volume in a given application, but the system-wide volume doesn't work, even the tray icon shows three dashes next to the little speaker and the sound settings won't start. I'd like to revert the settings to the original after removing the equalizer, as at this moment I can't change any settings even with the equalizer enabled. Is there any way to reset the sound settings

(I suppose it must be in gconf, but I don't know what the values should be. Currently the musicaudiosink settings are: audioresample ! audioamplify amplification=0 ! pulsesinkv)

Those are the settings that definitely changed after installing the equalizer, but they obviously won't change back after uninstalling it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Acquire Sound Drivers And Settings Panel

Jun 7, 2010

I've just moved from Ubuntu 9.04 and installed 10.04. I have 5.1 sound set up and selected the Analogue Surround 5.1 in the hardware selection. I'm using on board sound so i have the correct device selected. I have sound but my problem comes when trying to adjust the balance and sub etc. I can move the subwoofer on its own and set the fade on its own but if i try to change the balance the fade moves with it (not always in the same way, sometimes it fades to the rear, some times to the front). Also, when i move the master volume the subwoofer level follows it.Is there a fix for this problem?

Also how can i acquire the sound drivers and settings panel that where in 9.04 if not? will they still be comparable with 10.04?

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 :: Losing Sound In KDE But ALSA Works?

Mar 7, 2010

For some reason my sound stops working in KDE4. I can't trace it to any particular event, it seems to happen randomly. I think the problem started when I tried installing ktts (the text to speech engine) but I cannot be sure. I've now removed ktts but my problem persists.The strange thing is that if I go to the sound configuration in yast and play the test sound it works fine. But if I try play the test sound in multimedia settings from within systemsettings then I get an error saying "The audio playback device HDA Intel (AD198x Analog) does not work." Also that error message window is titled phonon.

I didn't install phonon but notice that it's installed. I assume it was installed with the default install because trying to remove it brings up over a 100 dependencies.The left speaker / right speak test from the konsole works but only as su and not as me. I get permission errors. Is that normal?


speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav
speaker-test 1.0.21
Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels


I also notice that sometimes when I boot up, after I login at the graphic login screen it kicks me out to the command prompt asking me to log in again. When I log in and "startx" KDE starts up but without sound and no kmix. Trying to start kmix manually doesn't start it. I just get an empty window.Again the sound works from the yast sound test.I've tried removing the kmix config files from /.kde4/config/ but that doesn't help. The logs don't show anything obvious to me and the problem appears to occur randomly in so much I haven't been able to figure out what triggers it yet.I also noticed during a session that I have this sound problem and after I've fixed it by resetting the sound card in yast that kde doesn't shutdown when trying to shut the laptop down.

I get the kde logging off chime but the desktop remains and is fully functional. After that any attempt to log-off or shutdowm is ignored. I'm forced to run the shutdown command from the konsole to shut the laptop down. I'm not sure how it's related but it only happens after the sound problem occurs. I'm using KDE4.4.1 but this started in KDE4.4.0 so the update didn't help any. When I upgraded to KDE4.4.0 I started with a fresh .kde4 directory.

Ubuntu :: Some Settings Not Lasting A Reboot ?

Jan 22, 2010

I noticed that every time I reboot some system settings sort of roll-back automatically to some time in the past.

So far I noticed these:
-All the aMule setting. Includes connection ports and Incoming folder, very annoying.

-Firefox search box engines. every reboot the list of engines rolls back to include a lot of engines i don't want and have to remove every time. this is the only thing in Firefox that is affected, bookmarks and add-ons stick.

-Keyboard layouts. Tried clicking "apply system-wide". still rolls-back after reboot.

What could cause this? How can I set these things permanently?

I'm using ubuntu 9.10 32-bit

Ubuntu :: Settings Lost After Each Reboot?

May 16, 2010

I installed Kubuntu on my Toshiba A135 with no problems at all...everything works: sound, wifi, LAN, etc...BUT whenever I reboot/restart the computer my Display and Audio settings revert back to default, and it doesn't happen when I log out, just when I restart/shutdown the computer. I have an Intel 945GM chipset and I have set my external Acer 23" monitor as the default and only monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080@60Hz using KDE's System Settings...And I chose to disable the laptop's internal monitor...but whenever I restart, the display returns to a 1024x800 cloned resolution (the default one)...which by the way looks hideous on a 23" monitor. And also the sound mixer goes back to the default levels.

So, can anyone help me out? I've been using Ubuntu for over 3 years and I've never had any problems like this one. I have just fell in love with Kubuntu, it looks and runs great, but this problem/bug is keeping me from being comfortable with it... I've been reading some things about XRandr and some commands and stuff and nothing have worked until now. I wonder, is it a common bug in Kubuntu or maybe an erroneous setting in the session manager....?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Settings Won't Stay After Reboot?

Mar 19, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 in Acer Aspire One together with Windows XP (both on different partitions). The trouble since installing Ubuntu has been that my keyboard has scandinavic layout which includes "" and "" keys. When I assign the layout in Ubuntu's as "FI" instead of "USA" everything is fine. After reboot for some reason the changes made won't stay and I have to change the keyboard layout manually. If I remove "USA" from the list after reboot it'll appear to the list again!

I've tried to create /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with the keyboard configuration code, but it has no effect for the situation. I've tried also command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup This has no effect also.

I'm starting to be frustrated for the situation. I really enjoy using Ubuntu instead of XP but this just doesn't make sense that the keyboard layout won't stay on.

Ubuntu :: Screen Settings Not Saved After Reboot?

Feb 11, 2011

I know this has been covered before but I can't find a resolution to the issue. Kubuntu simply refuses to save the screen settings, and each time I reboot it returns to 1440 x 900. The correct resolution should be 1920 x 1080.

KRandr shows 1440x900 (auto) in its drop down Size field. I've set krandr to load on startup so that I can set the correct resolution but of course this means I have to set the panel size as well. I've only recently installed KUbuntu and it's great except for this issue. Surely there must be a simple fix? I'm not a noobie and have about 4 years experience on Ubuntu / openSuse etc.

When I reboot my monitor settings disapear and everything is real real large.

If i disconnect from the KVM and connect Ubuntu directly to the monitor and detect monitor it will allow me to adjust settings so everything looks normal. Until I reboot and I am back to the same huge icons again. If I try to go back and adjust monitor settings there are only 2 settings options because it does not see my monitor through the kvm switch again.
