Ubuntu Multimedia :: Enable A Volume Bar With Esound (after Removing Pulseaudio)?

Jan 10, 2010

My OS is Ubuntu 9.10 64bit. I have been having problems with audio in several of my applications - all of which were fixed by removing Pulseaudio and installing Esound. After uninstalling pulseaudio, there is now no volume bar in the notification applet on my desktop panel.

In addition to this, my volume keys on my keyboard (Lenovo Y550 Ideapad) no longer work. Is there an application I can install that will put a volume bar back on my notification panel (using Esound)?

Fedora :: The Volume Control Tray Icon Was Disappeared When Removed Pulseaudio

Oct 17, 2009

Because of a horrible problem (volume bursting, this is known bug), I completely removed Pulseaudio and some related packages. So I'm now using pure ALSA, and it's working fine. Yet, the volume control tray icon was disappeared. How can I recover it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Removing PulseAudio And Reinstalling ALSA From Repos

Jul 10, 2010

It was recommended to me that I remove pulseaudio and re-install alsa. All the howtos on reinstalling alsa had instructions for re-installing alsa from the source. Is it possible to re-install alsa from the repos? If so what are the necessary packages that I need to install, for a complete re-install of alsa?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Pulseaudio Volume Control Gone From Panel

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 and my volume control disappeared from the panel. I have reinstalled pulseaudio but it had not re-appeared. I can't find it in the Add Panel list nor can I find it in the Pulseaudio volume control application as an option.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Control Pulseaudio Volume From Kmix?

May 7, 2010

I've just upgraded to kUbuntu 10.04. I've been using Gnome for a few years now, and felt the need to try KDE again. I've managed to get my NVidia 8200 with HDMI audio working, but have one last annoying issue.

I can't control volume with my RF remote or keyboard.

More to the point, the keys control the sliders in kMix, but to no effect on the sound. This is likely because I need to use Pulseaudio to get my HDMI working. The sliders in Pulse volume control, control the volume nicely. Either I need a way to force kmix to talk to pulse, or a way to re-map these keys to control pulse.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PulseAudio - Cannot Set Main System Volume

Nov 27, 2010

I've got rhythmbox playing and to minimize the effect of the mic input being routed to the computer's main output, I wanted to set the main system volume to be fairly low and turn up the level in rhythmbox. Pulseaudio won't let me do that. If I change the computer's main volume, it changes rhythm box's volume, and vice versa. I don't think I saw that behavior before, no idea what changed.

Am I completely misunderstanding something? I thought the point of an audio server is so that the client applications could produce the signals in their own way and send them through the server. Why do they have to interfere with each other's settings? Is there some preference to make it stop doing that? I looked in pavucontrol, device chooser and manager, don't see anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Stuttering - Pulseaudio - Missing Volume Control

Nov 24, 2010

i recently did a clean install of 10.10 to an old box i had so i could mess around with it and learn. however, all audio (and videos too) would stutter and play very quickly (a 1 minute videos video would play in about 45 seconds). so i followed the solution found here: [url]

this fixed the playback problems perfectly, however, i lost the volume control applet in the upper-right of the screen. reinstalling to volume control and then adding the "indicator applet" back to the panel adds a non-functional volume control icon and an additional mail icon.

Debian Multimedia :: Testing / Sid Pulseaudio Volume Control Bug?

Mar 6, 2010

I'm having a problem with Pulseaudio for quite some time, I already made some topics about it. But still no solution. The thing is, I can't use my keyboard volume control, it's only manipulating my ALSA configuration. Not my main Pulseaudio volume. Here is some information about my sound card:

$ pacmd list-cards
Welcome to PulseAudio! Use "help" for usage information.
>>> 3 card(s) available.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Global Hotkeys To Control Banshee/Rhythmbox/etc Volume With PulseAudio?

Jan 14, 2010

For awhile now, I've been trying to set two global hotkeys to control my volume level in Banshee. Before anyone comes in here and says to use the Volume Up/Volume Down keybinds in gnome-keybinding-properties, that does not work. That controls the master volume. I'm looking for a global hotkeys that control JUST the application volume.I've been playing around now, and I think I might have found a way. Since 9.10, Pulseaudio is integrated and the default sound manager. It also allows controlling the application volume level. While changing the volume would be through Pulseaudio and not in the specific application, this would work.

My question is if there's a way to set a keybind to control a specific application's volume within Pulseaudio? Or even a way to set a keybind to the event that happens when a specific application's volume is turned up or down within Pulseaudio.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Applet Disappeared And Cannot Change System Volume?

Feb 11, 2011

Recently I installed JACK and Ardour to try out. Later I decided against it and so I uninstalled them. After restarting my computer, I noticed that the sound applet has disappeared from the panel, although the battery and mail icons are still present. There is still sound coming out of my laptop speakers, but it is stuck at whatever volume I had it set on before the last time I shut down. Volume sliders inside Banshee and suchll function, but I cannot change the overall system volume, and my keyboard shortcuts for this have stopped working as well. When I go into System->Preferences->Sound, all I get is a message that says "Waiting for sound system to respond." and nothing happens. I've tried searching around for a solution, but nobody I could find seems to have had aimilar problem, and none of the various other solutions proposed have worked for me. I'm on Ubuntu 10.10 by the way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Package Manager Wants To Remove Pulseaudio-esound-compat?

Oct 11, 2010

I recently installed Quake 3 and Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and after reading a lot on making the sound work, I found a great resource here. The thing is that when I try some of the solutions this is what happens:When using apt-get install esound, the package manager wants to remove pulseaudio-esound-compat & ubuntu-desktop. When using apt-get install libsdl1.2debian-alsa, the package manager wants to remove libsdl1.2debian-pulseaudio & ubuntu-desktop

The sound is working flawlessly except for those two games, and I'm not sure if removing those packages (especially ubuntu-desktop) will make a mess. So I guess my question is What will be the impact of removing those packages? To rollback the system I just remove the new packages and install the old ones?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: PulseAudio Volume Control - Connection Failed:Connection Refused

Jul 4, 2010

I tried to finally set-up surround sound on my Ubuntu 10.04 machine and i was successful in doing so after a while of changing settings and tinkering. After doing so though, i was later in the day not able to get into the Pulseaudio Volume Control, therefore, everything is stuck where it is and i can't change anything. When i try to open Pulseaudio Volume Control i get the error message, Connection failed, Connection refused. My programs still play sound and i can control the sound of the programs through the programs, but i cant control the sound of the sorround sound now and my main sound bar only affects my stereo speakers, not the surround ones.

I believe this may have happened after the random disk check on restart, but i can't 100% confirm that and i'm not even sure if they are related. I still have sound, but i have no way to control the volume of my entire system at once. I did some looking around online and saw that others are having or had the same issue, and it was through different versions of Linux also. somehow reset everything so i can access PAVC and start over . I also tried steps listed in another thread here on the same topic, but they weren't working and it also seemed to be for older Ubuntu versions.

Fedora :: No Sound In JuK Or VLC After Removing Pulseaudio

Aug 21, 2011

I just removed Pulseaudio from both Fedora and Kubuntu due to the way it stalls other programs from launching after logging into KDE. After rebooting Kubuntu, KDE sounds, JuK and VLC all had sound, presumably via ALSA.

However, Fedora has KDE sounds but no sound in JuK or VLC. When I launch JuK, KDE reports that the HDA Intel analogue device does not work. Could this relate to Gstreamer? If Fedora falls back to ALSA if Pulseaudio is removed, does Gstreamer require additional plugins? Kubuntu has "gstreamer0.10-alsa", but Fedora doesn't seem to have an equivalent.

Ubuntu Installation :: Starting After Removing Pulseaudio - Use Terminal To Re-introduce?

Jun 13, 2011

In a desperate attempt to overcome frequent crashing accompanied by XLog lines that suggest to me that Pulseaudio is the cause, I removed Pulsaudio from my Ubuntu 10.4(LTS) using Software Centre. Now I cannot start up Ubuntu but I can get to Terminal via the Recovery Mode. My question is how can I use Terminal to re-introduce Pulseaudio so that I may get back to where I was, albeit with the random crashes that I have had for many months?

Ubuntu :: PulseAudio Volume Adjustment In Shell

Feb 19, 2010

I'm using Mangler and WoW under Wine. Mangler is quiet, WoW is not. I would like to write a script to adjust the volume of my Wine application (set it to say 50%) and then launch Mangler. The CLI page on the PulseAudio wiki offers

Code: set-sink-volume/set-source-volume But I am apparently missing the part of how to apply that to an application. Update: Solved with update to 1.1.2010227

Debian :: Configure Volume Buttons Without Pulseaudio

Dec 25, 2015

I disabled pulse audio in favor of just working with jack, alsa_in & alsa_out and everything works pretty well except for one thing.

When I enable pulseaudio I can control the volume with my multimedia keys, volume up, volume down, mute.

If I kill pulseaudio not only do I not have volume controls but the little widget in the top bar seems to be broken.

I looked in my /etc/acpi/ folder and see these files relating to volume

Code: Select all#!/bin/sh

test -f /usr/share/acpi-support/key-constants || exit 0

. /usr/share/acpi-support/key-constants
acpi_fakekey $KEY_VOLUMEUP

[Code] ....

running xev i get this output for those buttons:

Code: Select allFocusIn event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x1e00001,
    mode NotifyUngrab, detail NotifyAncestor

KeymapNotify event, serial 36, synthetic NO, window 0x0,
    keys:  0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   
           0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   0   

[Code] ....

nothing comes up for those keys, the terminal cursor just blinks.

also one more thing, those keys are set to shortcuts in the settings->keyboard->shortcut menu.

I can control my device with the amixer so I would like to just bind amixers functions to the keys but I don't really know how to go about doing that.

How can I bind amixers commands with those keys?

Software :: Difference Between Fedora And Ubuntu (pulseaudio) Volume Controls

Feb 3, 2011

Newer versions of both distributions are using the new pulseaudio volume control (I'm not referring to pavucontrol but the main volume control accessible via the volume icon in the panel). However, even though both distros' versions have the identical interface, they clearly do two different things. I've searched for this topic before and have come up with nothing; makes me wonder why no one else seems to have an issue with this.

For Fedora (12 and up) the main slider for the sound card's volume does just that, although the sliders for individual applications use the same "scale." If I drag an application's slider higher than that for the sound card, the "main" slider moves along with it.

In Ubuntu (Lucid and later) the main slider is the same as Fedora's, but the individual applications are scaled differently. Dragging an individual application's slider all the way to the right (100%) sets the maximum volume of this application to that of the sound card, whatever that happens to be at the moment.

In this respect, Ubuntu's individual sliders are relative to the (arbitrary) value set for the sound card, but Fedora's individual sliders are "hard-wired" to the main slider. I'm wondering if it is possible to make Fedora's volume control behave like Ubuntu's, i.e. is there a configuration setting, or is this designated in the source code? I'm sure there is a heated debate over why things are this way in Fedora, however with the new pulseaudio systems, the minimum value for the main slider for my sound card is pretty loud and this makes most audio unlistenable in Fedora, at least through headphones without an on-board volume control.

Ubuntu Servers :: Contents Of LVM Volume Disappeared?

Mar 25, 2010

I have an LVM group containing three 500GB drives in my NAS/home server. Last week, the contents of this group(ext4) disappeared with no apparent explanation.

I've been looking around for solutions, and here's what I've tried:Restoring the LVM configuration using vgcfgrestore with the most recent file from /etc/lvm/backup/. This restored just a few of the folders. Run fsck on the group. Lots of errors, all fixed, but nothing more appears. Run badblocks on each of the disks, no errors found.

It seems there is nothing wrong with the drives physically, or with the software configuration, so where have the files gone?

Even if I can't restore the full volume, if I could just grab what I can from the drives.

Fedora :: Pulseaudio Volume Drops On Each Subsequent Track?

Nov 1, 2009

Whenever I play music tracks in totem Movie Player, the volume drops on each subsequent track - it's VERY annoying. Does anybody know of a permanent fix for this? I've gone through the steps on the pulseaudio thread, and they only fix the problem temporarily. I've even gone so far as uninstalling everything attached to pulseaudio (which was real fun btw since xorg and the video drivers apparently are dependent). After fixing that mess, the audio is STILL screwy. Never had this problem under F10 - do I need to go back?

General :: Limit PulseAudio Volume To Prevent Overdrive?

May 11, 2010

Is it possible to limit maximum volume in PulseAudio? Currently, PulseAudio sets PCM channel too loud which results in distorted sound. I use aumix to turn volume down, but whenever any other sound is played (IM notification etc), PA plays with knobs, turning master volume down and PCM up. code...

I use OpenSUSE 11.2, pulseaudio 0.9.21, ALSA 1.0.21 and ALC889A sound codec.

Fedora :: Logical Volume Disappeared And Took / Root With It?

Jul 22, 2011

I've got a big problem. Earlier this afternoon I tried to unlock my screen, but the password dialog didn't appear (the background did, and I could move the pointer, but no dialog). So I restarted the computer, only for the Fedora bootup icon to get about 3/4 of the way full before the screen blanked out and I got the message "Boot has failed. Sleeping forever." I booted into the liveCD and opened the system installer to see if maybe I could just reinstall the system in place while leaving my data intact. When I got to the partitioning stage, my old partition layout was there...except one LVM volume group was totally missing. And this is the volume group that contained my / and /home, among other things. Another volume group sitting on a different RAID was still there, but ironically it was the one for short-term data.

I have three hard drives, using soft RAID and LVM. Each drive is split into 4 partitions. The first partition of each is part of a RAID-1 where /boot sits. The second of each makes up a RAID-5 on which sits my "Main" volume group for my important data (this is the one that has gone AWOL). The third of each makes up a RAID-0 on which my "Volatile" volume group sits (for /tmp, /var/tmp, and the like). The fourth is swap.

Is there any chance I can restore my volume group so my data can be recovered? I'm not sure if I've got the full layout with volume sizes written down anywhere.

Debian Multimedia :: Removing Epiphany Without Removing Half The System?

May 31, 2011

I know a bunch of commands and I am comfortable using the terminal, I even set a powerpc server but I can't figure out how to remove epiphany on this new computer I'm setting up. I didn't install anything with tasksel. I installed gnome and xorg afterwards... I load it up and 'startx' just fine. then I check around for the programs that were installed. I lik'em gimp, lot's of utilities. gedit. anyway I find epiphany, which I have already established that I dislike, I immediately go to the root terminal (another nice program that comes with gnome) and type apt-get remove epiphany-browser-data the output says it will be deleting gnome... however I have researched and found these are simpy meta packages that don't really matter.... however under the section that states all the packages that will be removed by autoremove there is a huge list... I doubt these packages are safe to remove. how to remove epiphany without removing a huge amount of probably needed software

Fedora Hardware :: Removing A Bad Physical Volume

Jan 22, 2010

So I got a bad physical volume inisde my logical volume. I want to do this safely rather than tinkering around, how can I get the bad physical disk out and look at the data on the other 2 drives to see if I can save anything? Its just the standard fedora setup where it combines all the disks, nothing fancy.

I have the volume group activated as a partial, and now I just want to see the data on the other sections how could I mount that?

General :: LVM Removing A Physical Volume Safely

Aug 7, 2010

Let's assume I have a volume group (VG) with six physical volumens (PV) - sdb1, sdb2, sdb3, sdc1, sdc2, sdc3..I want to remove one of the PVs from the group in order to use its space elsewhere - how can I know if it's safe? How can I do that without losing data and without first "pvmove"ing it elsewhere?Reading a bit more, my guess is using the result of pvscan, but I thought I'd ask before removing keeping it safe as I'm not an LVM expert.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Boot Failure In 15 After Removing Unused LVM Volume?

Jul 18, 2011

So what happened is i had a small encrypted lvm volume that i no longer need because I have bought an external HDD and used truecrypt on in. So after I transfer all the files off of the encrypted partition, I restart and drop into single user mode and remove the unneeded volume. When i attempt to restart, instead of going to the login screen, when the boot progress bar is full, it says "welcome to emergency mode: enter rootssword for maintenance or press control D for normal mode" or something along those lines. I tired control+D, but that just brought me right back to the emerengy mode screen. I put in my root password and tried startx, but then x gave me this error: "can not start D-bus, can you call q-dbus?". After that i tried both "service dbus start" and "dbus-launch", both of which failed. Is there any quick remedy to this situation, or do i have to reinstall
