Ubuntu Multimedia :: Switch Audio In / Out Sockets On Natty

May 23, 2011

i have three jacks on the card, the usual with a normal home PC, - one for the speakers, second for the microphone, and third for line in. Now my speakers (Line out) jack is damaged a little. So when i plug in my speaker jack there, i get audio only in the right speaker (not a problem of the speakers, because i tested it, and not Ubuntu either, because this problem existed when i used to run Windows XP as well).

Now in Windows XP, what i used to do is, there was this tool (i think it came with the sound driver - Realtek) whenever i plugged in a jack into either of the sockets, a gui would ask me what i just plugged in, and it would allocate audio in and out according to what i specify then. So i used to plug in my speakers into the line in, because thats something i do not use, and used the tool to identify that jack as the line out.Is there some way i can do this on Ubuntu? i want to get line-out through the line-in socket. i'm a beginner with Ubuntu, and know only to use the GUI.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio After Upgrade To Natty?

Jun 11, 2011

following chained updates of my music server from 10.04 to 11.04 I no longer have any sound, which is sort of bad for a music server...Primary soundcard in the setup is USB So I tried the command posted in various "no sound" threads

sudo aptitude --purge reinstall linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils linux-image-`uname -r` linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r` libasound2

Which reinstalled stuff as expected, except had this error in the output: Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "linux-ubuntu-modules-2.6.38-8-generic" Could the error be because of backports?

aplay -l helpfully reports aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found.
and the output from
wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Stream Audio After Upgrade To Natty

Jun 13, 2011

I have been using the streaming audio feature in Firefox for years, and have upgraded Ubuntu with each new release. I've never had a problem with streaming from my favorite radio stations until I upgraded to Natty. If I know the IP and use Audacious or another client, I can still stream through them-- but not from my browser any more. Flash-based content works OK too.I have upgraded two computers from 10.10 to Natty (desktop and laptop) and it has happened with both. the desktop is the 64-bit system (AMD), and the laptop runs the 32-bit OS (Intel). We have two other computers still running 10.10, and they're both still OK. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the xine plugin (which seems to do most of the streaming), VLC, and a couple of others. No luck. I don't think I see any gaps between the codecs installed for the 10.10 computers and the ones running Natty.I tried Chrome -- same result.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Switch From Audio Input From Mic To Line On 9.10?

Feb 28, 2010

I wanted to take an audio feed from a stereo amplifier into my HP Pavilion DV6 laptop, in order to digitally record some old vinyl.

In the Sound Preferences tab, I seemed to be able to record easily from the internal mic, but there seemed to be no easy way to switch the preferences to enable recording from the Line In socket on the laptop.

We tried muting the mic, this only caused the system to record nothing. We also tried all the various available options in "the Hardware Profiles" tab, "Settings for the available device", but no the laptop seemed to be getting no "line in" input with whatever profile we tried.

On Mac, it was as simple as switching the input sound preferences from "internal mic" to "line in".

Debian Multimedia :: Switch From Mate-volume-control To Pulse Audio Mixer?

Jun 20, 2015

I'm using Mate on Jessie. The problem is that mate-volume-control kinda sucks as an audio control. It doesn't have nearly enough options for a proper volume control program. Pulse is much better for my needs. It or Alsa. Is it possible to remove mate-volume-control, or at least make Pulse the default volume control?

Ubuntu :: Proxy Switch In Natty / 11.04 Gnome Classic?

Jul 7, 2011

Ever since I upgraded to Natty / 11.04, the quality of my desktop experience has dropped sharply.

One thing that effect me greatly is that I can no longer conveniently switch my network proxy on or off system-wide with single click.

Back in Maverick / 10.10, I could launch gnome-network-properties and switch it back and forth depends rather I am at work or at home.

I have found a similar application, "gnome-control-center network," on the surface of it, it seems to replace "gnome-network-properties" in Maverick. Except that this application doesn't seems do ANYTHING.

As result, I am having the hardest time switching my proxy settings, as I have to do so per application basis (gpodder, pidgin, aptitude, thunderbird / firefox, etc).

ps. I am using Gnome "classic" but Gnome 3 suffers the same issue

Ubuntu :: Natty - Compiz Workspace Switcher Can't Switch Down From W/space #1?

Jul 16, 2011

I've just (finally) upgraded to Natty from Maverick. After the faffing around to restore my favoured AWN and Compiz combo, all's now ok, except for one annoyance to do with Compiz (0.9.4) and the workspace switcher. I can use the mousewheel to rotate workspaces up/down (actually, left/right) to go from 1->2->3->4->5->6->1.. and 6->5->4->3->2->1, but it won't rotate down / left from 1->6. It works ok if I use <Ctrl>left arrow from w/space #1.

I've checked the mappings for Button4 and Button5 in CCSM, and there's no clash. So, am I right in thinking this is probably a bug? Has anyone else had this problem and is there a fix? Is downgrading to Compiz 0.8 likely to fix it?

Ubuntu :: Switch To The Audio Support That Was In 9.04?

Sep 29, 2010

10.04 doesn't support my father's computer. I always have to switch between 4.1 surround sound and 5.1. After I change a song, or watch another video, it only plays static, then I have to go into sound preferences and change it again, until the next song. I didn't have this trouble in 9.04 on his computer. The problem now is, he actually replaced windows with Ubuntu this time, so he wants everything to work. So what software was installed in 9.04 and how do I get it to 10.04?

Fedora :: F11 Audio Volume Changes Everytime When Switch To New Song In Any Music Player?

Sep 2, 2009

First of all, this is not a rhythmbox issue, but a pulseaudio one. Everytime I click on next song (in rhythmbox or amarok), the master volume drops about 25 percent. Once the volume goes to 0, the volume cannot be modified without going into sound preferences and unmuting the volume for the application. This is *very* annoying. Basically, it means that everytime I click on next song, I need to follow that with 2 or 3 hits of up volume.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: 11.1 Updates To Pulse Audio In Gnome Improve Audio Functionality ?

Oct 17, 2010

I'm thinking of installing openSUSE-11.1 Gnome on a Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo 7400M laptop because the wireless in Gnome is much more user friendly than KDE3/KDE4 in openSUSE-11.1. The idea is to give this laptop to my 84-year old mother and things need to 'just work' for her (she currently has a desktop running openSUSE-11.1 KDE3 that uses a WIRED interface to the web).

I refuse to update this laptop to openSUSE-11.2 nor 11.3 (nor other recent distributions) because every kernel update after the 2.6.27 kernel has broken the Intel i855GM graphics drivers for that laptop. There are many bug reports and none have fixed the problem for this Fujitsu-Siemens implementation of the i855GM graphics.

Hence I am looking at Gnome.

I booted the laptop to a Gnome openSUSE-11.1 liveCD and wireless is easy and works great. But audio is very very VERY bad. It is incredibly user unfriendly and it does NOT work well. I assume that is because pulse audio in openSUSE-11.1 was very immature.

I note these updated packages in the openSUSE-11.1 update repository:


So my question is, did the updates to pulse audio (in the openSUSE-11.1 update repository) fix the pulse audio situation? Are there ANY helpful views on this?

Currently my wife is using this laptop with KDE-4.4.4 (and openSUSE-11.1) so I can't just install Gnome and play with it without taking the laptop away from her for a while (note the hard drive is too small for a dual boot of KDE/Gnome).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Audio Choppy - Can't Play Any Audio With Amarok When Desktop Effects Are Enabled

Jun 7, 2011

to start off, i'll post the specs of the machine:

dell inspiron e1505
3.2 gb ram
1.86 ghz intel core duo
ati x1400 gfx
opensuse 11.4 kde 32 bit.

okay, here are the details: can't play any audio with amarok when desktop effects are enabled because the minute a window is moved, it will distort the audio. even when disabling desktop effects, some applications still cause this. can't play videos videos even with desktop effects disabled because of the same reason.

i just switched from ubuntu and when i ran version 11.04, i had to disable kms to do anything. i tried on opensuse 11.4 and the audio was flawless but the gfx went all to hell.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: M-Audio Delta 66 And ATI HD Audio?

Jun 1, 2010

I am having some issues with getting Ubuntu Studio 10.04 to work correctly on my system. Everything works fine except sound. I have a M-Audio Delta 66 audio interface and my onboard sound is disabled. When I run the command alsaconf I can see the ICE1712 card without issue. However when I run alsamixer the only option it is giving me is my HD sound from my ATI video card. For some reason it seems the ATI card has locked the audio to it with no way to remove it. I have reinstalled the alsa drivers for my card and can only see it through alsaconf. When I tell alsaconf to configure the ICE1712 card it says it configured it properly.When I run the command envy24control it says no ICE1712 cards were found.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Flv Video + Audio To Ogg Audio Only?

Dec 22, 2010

Is there an application that anyone knows about that I can use to convert either an .flv or .ogg file that contains both audio and video to just an audio .ogg file (preferably vorbis+theora) without audacity? I'm fairly certain audacity could accomplish this but it seems like overkill for what I'm trying to do and the computer I'm trying to use does not run it so well.

::EDIT:: I should also mention that I've tried looking on google. I did find downloadhelper extension for firefox which uses ffmpeg to convert the files but I don't see any obvious way to strip the video.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound And Speed Up Multimedia Files In Natty 11.04?

May 9, 2011

so i don't know what happened, but all multimedia files are suddenly speed up/and-or with no sound (ubuntu 11.04 with all recent updates, firefox 4, adobe flash-instick etc.)

if i try to play a flash movie on for instance videos it's sped-up with no sound, if i play an mp3 song (i use exaile) the bar is sped up and there's no sound either, if i start an avi movie (vlc) it's not sped up but there's no sound though.

when i log in to the system the logging in jingle is not playing, so basically the sound just got turned off for some reason but according to the soundbar it should be on.

this problem started just recently. i don't know if it has to do with recent updates or that my log in re-started a couple of times after using a kde program (kmess).
