I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 on a friends old Laptop (ASUS PRO60V). Everything is running great except I cant get any audio output from the output jack.
Audio works fine through the internal speakers, but once I plug in speakers or headphones into the jack (combined SPDIF & Analog) the internal speakers are muted but there is no output on the external speakers. My guess is it is trying to output through SPDIF instead of analog...
I tried different outputs settings in the sound setting menu and also looked at alsa mixer, but couldn't get it to work.
Any help would be much apreciated!
