I think this is a bit of a complicated problem so bear with me while I explain it. I'm using an HP Laptop with Ubuntu 10.10. The laptop has the touch buttons for mute and volume up/down, and I use them all the time (at least when I was on Windows). I've very recently switched to Ubuntu and now those keys are causing problems with a game called Minecraft. Basically, when I'm playing it and use those keys, it brings me out of full screen (if I'm using fullscreen) and then seems to mute like it should, but the problem is, it doesn't UNmute when I press it again. The lighted button on the laptop goes back to showing its unmuted, but the game still has no sound. I've tried messing with the sound settings inside the game, and doing all these weird combos of when I mute/unmute and all, nothing seems to help. I usually have to restart the computer to fix it, but then if I use the button again, it does the same thing.
P.S. does anyone know of a way for these buttons to NOT interrupt full screen? I had the same problem with it interrupting fullscreen apps on windows, but then I used a program called 3RVX and it fixed it. Is there anything like this on linux?
I am struggling with a problem with the volume control... when i try to adjust the volume with the sliding bar i can not do it. If i put the scrollbar to the 0 position, it is muted. when i move it to anywhere else, i get the full volume. From other programs like vlc, i can adjust the volume with no problem.
I'm running f13 on eeeeeeepc netbook .... gnome and compiz The <FN> keys that control volume are not working, but brightness, for example, works fine. The keyboard settings in gnome do not seem to allow me to set the volume to the <fn> key combos.
In the last week, I noticed that my compaq 6710b physical controls for volume control/mute stopped working correctly. The volume control is not working anymore and the mute "unmutes" itself after precisely 1 minute.
I was wondering:
1/ did an update modify anything
2/ is there a way for me to know if the problem is physical? like a physical signal sniffer of some sort, or a log that indicates that I pressed mute
3/ Am I alone? and if not, does anyone know of a workaround?

I have a lenovo thinkpad and my internal microphone works only when i connect another mic through the jack. Even the mic mute button present on my laptop is not working.(There is no such problem on windows se7en) Earlier, even an external mic never used to work. After some searching i added "options snd-hda-intel model = thinkpad" to my alsa-base.conf file. And then the internal mic started working only when an external mic was connected.
when i type "cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec" i get: Codec: Realtek ALC269 Codec: Intel G45 DEVCTG
I looked into the HD-Audio-Models.txt but couldn't locate the exact model for ALC269 so i searched online and decided to put model = thinkpad as i'd mentioned earlier. But The alsa-mixer shows card to be HDA Intel and chp as intel g45 devctg. Moreover, even this partial working of mic(s) is when i choose the input source in the alsamixer to be front mic and not int mic.
The volume on my computer randomly mutes/unmutes itself rapidly at unpredictable intervals. sometimes it works fine, other times it does not. I cannot find out what the problem is. I have never had this problem until recently, and this problem has surfaced in ubuntu 10.10, 10.04, 64 and 32 bit versions of the operating systems. I have used this hardware setup for a year before this problem ever surfaced. My hardware is installed and working fine, I just cannot figure out why this is happening. Does anyone know of some commands I can use to find out what is causing the volume to mute/unmute itself?
After I listened to the audio program on the Google Chrome, I downloaded the MP3 to listen again offline. When I clicked on the downloaded MP3 file and using Totem to hear on my computer, there is no sound. I checked the sound preference, there is NO MUTE.
I restarted computer, clicked on the MP3 file with Totem, I can hear. I can hear the sound on ...... Which process should I restart without reboot computer. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. Here is the output after execute command "sudo lshw -c sound"
I'm using the Logitech MX1100 mouse which has a quite a few buttons. (10) I would like to use 2 of them for volume control (as I do for Windows) but have no idea how to in ubuntu 9.10. Is there any way I could map the buttons to control volume? I'm a minor noob so keep it simple.
I have 2 button in the task bar and I don't know why its disapear and how to make it reappear again? The sound mixer button The Sign out button I have already tried by right click/Add to panel but I didn't find these button!
I would like to know how i get the button that let you change the volume that use to be available to add to the panel in some older versions of Ubuntu. If theres something else out there that can do the same and is added to the panel then please do tell.
I have recently had my ubuntu 10.04 updated and lost the show desktop (minimise button usually attached to the desktop panel located at the bottom far left corner of the screen. (The one you click on which minimises all windows and takes you direct to the desktop.
I have tried looking for options in the Appearance and Windows options in Menu-system-preferences but cant find anything, that could be used to enable or disable this feature. Secondly, since upgrading to the current version of Ubuntu I have been missing the volume control button usually located by the date/wireless/ Power off button/ icons on the panel located top right of screen.
I'm having a strange behavior with the volume button on my laptop, everything works fine, is just that is "switched" when I activate the volume (press function key + volume key) the volume light on the button goes off and volume gets muted, if I pressed it again the light turns on mber) and the volume gets unmute, anyone has an idea where should I look to correct this?
I'am Using UBUNTU 10.10 version i upgraded my os then the volume control button on system tray and the previous "Indicator Applet" were gone. Now i added the volume control button by adding "Indicator Applet" from Add to Panel option at tray. But i also tried the following:
"Use Alt+F2 to open the Run Application app, paste gnome-volume-control-applet into the text field, and click the Run button" Then i had two volume control buttons after that i tried to remove the volume button which is came by the command line Not from the Indicator Applet Next i tried the following code in terminal to remove the volume button which was came from command line:
"sudo apt-get purge indicator-sound"
But the wrong thing is the volume button on Indicator Applet was gone I also add the indicator applet but the volume button doesn't coming back with the applet Now i want the Original Volume button along with the applet Not the other button.
i have been dreaming of using linux for years and finally got the courage to do it today but i'm stuck with 1 thing ... i had to install ubuntu 10.04 using my onboard video adapter.. as swiching to my nvidia card was screwing up the install... !! so i did so ... but now ubuntu is installed but i cant find a way to install drivers for my agp... here are my spec's from . . "lspci -command"
Can I safely remove 1 distro without screwing up the other? I have Linuxmint as secondary and ubuntu as the last.I want to replace ubuntu.If I just delete the partitions/format and install my other os which is OpenSuse 10.03 will this work.will opensuse see linuxmint and make grub understand?
I need windows because iscan under Ubuntu does not work well. So I have a dual boot. Trouble is that windows is only good for a month because I can't validate it because I have it on another machine also.
So, my month is up and I can not longer access windows. I could do a complete wipe and reinstall windows and then put Ubuntu next to it but that is a lot of work. Can I just reinstall windows and get my boot loader to operate properly again? Or is it actually easier to do a total wipe out and reinstall? I have tried to restore grub before and I failed miserably.
I am having trouble with Flashplayer 10.1 d51 screwing up the colors on a lot of videos, .....,etc. It is really strange and hard to describe. it makes the video almost like it has a pink curtain over the video and only able to see outlines of the video subject matter. When the scene changes, it while sort of clear and then spread again. I can boot into Ubuntu 9.10 and can play the video just fine.
It doesn't do it on all videos. But, it does it quite often. Plus, I have another Slack 13 system with S3 Virge that plays the same videos just fine.
1. Evince is somehow screwing up font creation when displaying dvi files. I can preview the dvi file fine under xdvi. When I try with evince, I kicks off a slew of metafont font-creation runs, then shows me totally garbled pages -- the layout is correct, but none of the characters are right. This happens for documents that primarily use Times Roman fonts.
2. *Every* time evince comes up, it insists on starting in continuous / "fit page width" mode. I don't want either one. I want continuous-mode*off* and the window in the "best fit" view. So I have to click, drag, click, click, drag, release *every* time I pop up a file. It's very annoying. There doesn't appear to be any key in the gnome gconf config database I can set to affect these things. How do I fix this?...
i m using ubuntu 10 .10.for 2 weeks it was working fine yesterday onwards it changed.tried all themes but still i cant drag the window to make it small in sizethere is no close button minimize and maximize button in all the application and files[URL]
Is there a way to default volume to 100% in the terminal with gnome-volume-control-applet or any other program? I am setting up a dedicated Zsnes machine which boots into Fluxbox but the volume is muted by default. There isn't a man page for gnome-volume-control-applet.
When I log into Gnome the volume is set to 100%, but Fluxbox is always set to mute.
I've got my xubuntu 10.10 install just about perfect on a little acer aspire d250, apart from a small sound useability issue: In the interests of simplicity and resource usage I removed pulseaudio. After a bit of fiddling I got it so that my USB soundcard (ProDac) is recognized and automatically set as the default soundcard when plugged in. Any sound applications automatically use the USB sound if it present, no need to around with pulse. The only problem is that my netbook's volume control keys still only control the master volume of the inbuilt soundcard, and have no effect on the usb sound. Does anyone know of a way to change which sound device these keys actually effect? I'd like to write a little script so that when the usb device is detected the keys are remapped.
I'm running Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit on an old DFI KT600AL motherboard based system using the onboard VIA 3058 AC97 audio (because it supports front panel audio connections and none of the add-in PCI soundcards I have do). I have an old Gateway/STB TVPCI TV tuner card (mainly wanted the FM radio part to work) hooked up to the cd audio connector on the motherboard because the digital audio over the pci bus apparently isn't supported for this card (neither is the onboard analog mixer on the tv tuner card, I had to hack a CD-ROM audio cable and solder it to the audio outputs of the tv tuner module on the TV tuner card). When I use the master channel as the master channel (selected in Kmix) then as one would expect it affects the output volume of all other audio playing on the system except that which is being handled by the PCM channel. On Windows the PCM channel was also affected by the "Volume Control" slider such that ALL volume levels were reduced when moving the slider. I'm hoping someone can help me figure out how to make it work like this on Kubuntu.
First off I should warn you that I (like many users of older hardware that is not properly supported under PulseAudio) have uninstalled PulseAudio (because it's garbage) and am using Alsa to manage my audio hardware. I would think that there would be some way to do this using the 'amixer' application to add the PCM channel as a component of the 'Master' channel so that when the volume is turned down using the 'Master' channel control it will affect the PCM channel too (at least the output to the speaker jack, not necessarily the capture or mix volume though), but I'm not really any good at doing things from a terminal window and the options for the amixer command kind of confused me.
I used Ubuntu 10.10 (64 bit) on IMac i7. As far as, I remember, after installing Pulse-Audio Equalizer, for each restart of the system, after login screen, system sets volume to maximum value. What can I do?
