Trying to fix audio output. NVIDIA GT 520 is the card so HDMI audio. It was working perfectly in 11.10.
Following the steps at: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/So...otingProcedure
Here is my ALSA-INFO: http://pastebin.com/YuBN9t3z
This command does generate sound (good sign!): aplay -D plughw:1,7 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
Added the default PCM line to asound.conf, did not fix anything.
If I configure VLC to play over ALSA on HDMI 1,7 then it works.
No users get sounds, XBMC no sound. I can't even use the System Settings -> Sounds -> Hardware Tab -> Test speakers, none of the options can produce sound.
This makes me believe pulse is toast. I am on hour 6 of trying to fix this.
This is a HTPC, running an upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04. Running kernel 3.2.0-24-generic.
UPDATE Using the pulse audio controls and an application like VLC at the same time I was able to visually see the app playing audio. The problem was it is defaulting to the Built in audio and not the HDMI/DP one. So XBMC and VLC are now set to HDMI/DP output properly.
PROBLEM STILL EXISTS. Nothing understands audio exists by default. They all assume the non existent built in audio is the one I want. Even the gnome sound indicator does not appear, none of the star
