I'm having issues with soundI cannot view my sound card in Gnome Alsa. It is not muted. It does work I tried to remove myself from the audio group but it won't allow me to i am sudo what might be going wrong when i click the buttons they do nothing in users and groups menu
I have installed xubuntu version 10. My sound card is a Yamaha dS-1S, and seems to be properly configured. Alsa mixer doesn't indicates any error. However, I can't manage to get any sound. I have checked that jacks are correctly plugged.
I posted my question on Linx.com, but have not received an answer after 75 viewers to my question: Ok my respected Linux genius. This is my project. First I have a Windows / Linux combo OS set-up! In my windows, I use the latest realtex sound driver as this gives me complete control with recording output control and Microphone gain control. In the set-up, there is a stereo mixer component with is necessary to engage the direct sound recording from my sound card. To make this all come together, I use a sound recording software [ free sound recorder 9 ] and to convert the recording to a wma, wav, or meg, I use Roxio 10 to produce audio cd's to play on all CD Players.
The challenge for me in Linux is to create the same set-up with Linux applications to produce the same professional results.Presently, my kubuntu 10.04 has Alsa sound drivers, with a version of realtek incorporated. I have the Alsa mixer software as well as Audacity as the sound recorder program. But no matter what I do, audacity depends on the microphone to record, which makes the final recording pure crap. If I lower the microphone boost or gain in my Alsa mix, then Audacity can not record the ambient sound from the speaker output and it will only recognize mono and pulse as the sound method. With the pre mention set up, Who has a set up identical to what is offered to windows that will do exactly the same for Linux. I basically want to record directly from the sound card in my Linux, without depending on using my microphone and then a CD burning program to make the conversion to MPEG or the necessary file format for the burned CD to play in all CD players, not just on a PC) I am trying to stay away from command line language in the terminal. I really need a replacement for Audacity,cause Free Sound Recorder is made for Windows Platform......I need a Linux sound Guru for the answer.I am not doing this to pirate music....I have over 3,450 music track inside my Rhapsody subscription and I like to record music for personal listening on my portable CD player and at 0.99 per track charge to do this in Rhapsody, I might as well by a recording studio and hire the singing artist.Basically in short..I need to know if there is a setting I can engage in my Alsa Mixer panel that will allow me to record directly from my sound card without using my microphone as a default. When I mute the microphone in my Alsa control panel, my Audacity program will not record using the microphone, which I do not want to use anyway. I just want to record straight from my sound card, as this eliminates all hiss, distortion that is inherited with using a microphone.
I know sound is a recurring issue around here, but I can't find any posts/FAQs that address my particular problem.
Here it goes: When I first installed ALSA, I unsurprisingly had no sound. OK, no big deal, I'll just un-install and re-install ALSA and see if that helps. No, instead ALSA won't even recognize my card.

since upgrading my desktop I've had trouble getting my old sound blaster audigy working. I've disabled the motherboard's on board sound in the bios. My new desktop is built around the Intel i7-2600K. I have a suspicion that maybe linux isn't playing nice with the pci-e to pci bridge that has replaced native pci support but I have no evidence of this. The sound card works fine in windows. The card is detected
I can not set default sound card for alsa. It detects my sound card and I can play audio with xmms when I config that to use alsa and my intel sound card, but other applications which use default alsa sound card, and also pulse audio, can not play any sound.
I have a TV tuner card with its output connected to the CD in of an integrated sound card. Video is OK, and the sound also gets thorough (to the line out) when running xawtv, for example. However, I found no ways yet for recording it.I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with ALSA drivers. Pulseaudio was running in the beginning, now it doesn't, but it doesn't seem to make much difference.
capturing with VLC, using plughw:0,0 as the audio capture device. (Result: no sound track at all in the resulting video.)arecord, then aplay.alsamixer. The capture source is set to "CD" (and on the input side it's also "CD" where I can effectively modify the volume for audio going through...), but still no result.
I don't have any sound after installing Linuxant ALSA driver. I tried uninstalling it and the hsf driver, didn't help. Reinstalling ALSA didn't help either. Ubuntu doesn't detect my sound card, and aplay doesn't detect my sound card. lspci -v output for sound card:

I am experiencing problems with the Gnome ALSA Mixer. I installed Ubuntu on my MacBook Pro inside Windows (I am running Windows via bootcamp), and when I am running Ubuntu the sound doesn't work. After researching the problem online, I was told that one needed to download an application called the "Gnome ALSA Mixer", and switch the mute to off (apparently the mute is default). I downloaded the application, but whenever I try to run it the application window is blank. There are no controls of any sort. I was told when installing Ubuntu inside windows that the disk efficiency (I think thats what is was) is very much reduced, but I don't know if this has anything to do with that.
Also, is there a way to prevent the trackpad from registering stimulus while typing? I find it very obnoxious that every time I try to type in my password or the like that the curser clicks off of where I'm typing, so I am constantly having to move the pointer back and re-click in the area I'm trying to type in (if that makes sense).
how to install alsa drivers along with Asus xonar dgx sound card. I followed these instructions. URL....And until "Setting up modprobe and kmod support" instructions were clear. I should put something in /etc/modules, but I dont down exactly what.

I'm running Kubuntu 9.10 X64, and am using ALSA for my sound. I have no trouble with sound: VLC, Adobe's Flash plugin, Java, etc. all work properly. When I run the Gnash standalone player, sound does not work at all.
I am using linux mint 9 with kernel 184.108.40.206. I upgraded from alsa 1.0.23 to 1.0.24 using the alsa upgrade script. Sound was working just fine before on my Asus Xonar DS, However, my nvidia geforce 430's hdmi audio card is not recognized in 1.0.23 but it is in 1.0.24. Though the card is detected, I have no sound on either cards now.
My situation: I have a desktop, with the following sound systems internal to it:HDA IntelSBLive! I also have a Creative Labs webcam connected via USB and another device (VR goggles) which have an audio component.My problem: a fair number of game applications use ALSA card#0 to play games, now pulse's ALSA module is at best lacking, so I don't use that for games. At this point I ahve pulse configured to always use HDA Intel for it's sink, what I would like to do is to configure it so that the SBLive! card is always ALSA card#0, regardless if the 2 USB audio-ish devices are installed. That way pulse can be running and I still get to play the games with native ALSA audio. The trick is how do I force by SBLive card to _ALWAYS_ be card#0 ?Update: there is an easy way, that I should have realized before, which allows for ALSA games to use the SBLive without having it at index 0, below is how to do it:
After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.
I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.
I have Ubuntu Lucid. If i dont' mistake, it should be possible to hear several applications playing sound simultaneously, with ALSA. But if 1 app is already playing, then starting a second one give always "device is busy".
Initially the sound was working fine in my ubuntu 10.04 lucid. Headphone jack was not working. I downloaded and installed following packages in order to upgrade alsa. alsa-driver-1.0.15rc3.tar.bz2 alsa-firmware-1.0.15rc1.tar.bz2 alsa-lib-1.0.15rc3.tar.bz2 alsa-utils-1.0.15rc1.tar.bz2 Now there is no sound. Whole system is fried. I don't know what happened.
I recently converted an amd 64 bit WINdows machine to Lucid 64 bit. Everything has gone well. I had numerous issues with Pulseaudio that I removed it. Sound with Alsa has been great, including system theme sounds. I can record via a mike as well. What I cannot do is to capture sounds coming through the sound card. When I record I am getting empty files. The mixer indicates that there are two capture devices. Here is some data on my audio card.

I was having a problem with ALSA, installed OSS, but now nothing works. I want to remove OSS, and reinstall ALSA. I am thinking about reinstalling, but I have all my stuff on here, so don't really want to.
basically, sound will cut in and out. if i'm on videos, whenever sound cuts out, the video will continue for exactly two seconds and stop. sometimes i can reload the videos video, and it'll either play for two seconds without sound, or go normal, but usually for only a little time, not even a minute. similar problems for amarok, spotify and other applications using the sound card. this is the output when trying to restart the alsa demon

i've tried reconfiguring alsa by using the alsaconf application, which didn't help. the output from restarting the alsa demon, may indicate that the correct driver isn't loaded.
I bought a Diamond Xtreme Sound 5.1 sound card because I had read online that this card was a good choice with Linux and came with universal driver software. I installed the hardware correctly (as it works with WinXP) but I'm not able to get it working with Ubuntu.
So i upgraded to 10.04 a few months ago, right after it was released. clean install. it worked perfectly out of the box, or so it seemed. I had had sound problems in 9.10 that i didn't experience after i upgraded... until i tried to use some headphones a few days ago. when i connected the headphones, the speakers wouldn't mute. i thought it was no big deal. i had the same issue in 9.10 and it was fixed after i upgraded alsa. i figured i'd try the same thing. I used the same alsa upgrade script i used last time [URL] and it fixed the jack sensing and the sound worked perfectly... for about 5 minutes. after a short while of playing audio, sound would stop playing. i'd stop getting sound from video files, audio files, and even from my browser. i'd have to reboot to get sound again... only to lose it again in about 10 minutes. Now it's regressed to the point where i have no sound even after i reboot.
weird thing is, when i test out an audio file with aplay, it works... even if i just get garbage sound from some mp3 files.
anyway, i've got an HP dv7 and this is my aplay -l output

At least, I think it was the update that broke it. Anyway, my sound was working fine yesterday. I have gone through this thread to try and fix my sound, and it appears that my sound card has been uninstalled.

Last time my sound wasn't working, I was directed to this thread. The script from this thread might work again, but if it will just be erased after every update, I'd like something a bit more permanent.
the sound stops while playing music or movies and can't be restartet. I already upgraded alsa to 220.127.116.11. I managed to fix the problem somehow after hours of deinstalling and reinstalling alsa and trying loads of things, but I did not really find the cause of the problem.
I had an issue with my mic so I decided to upgrade alsa to 1.0.23 to see if this will fix the problem. I used alsa driver/utils/lib 1.0.23 from alsa-project.org So it fixed it...but now I don't have sound in Flash (youtybe videos, etc.). System sound works perfectly (ev en Skype is working) I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 64bit and Google Chrome browser. flash -> flashplugin-nonfree
When I had UBUNTU 10.04 sound WORKED!I have post several threads about this issue, I hope this would be the last one, My OS version is Ubuntu 11.04, my hardware is: Nvidia GTS 450 video Card EGS; and an integrated sound card reference: Via Azalia HDAC VT1708/A; After installing ubuntu I had no audio through my integrated sound card, I cant use my NVidia HDA card because I need for it an HDMI AUDIO, and I dont have any HDMI sound devices like dvd or TV. So I need to use my integrated default Via soundcard. I Updated the OS, nothing changed. After typing aplay -l it showed this:
