a little late, but I found a workaround. You can't make Ubuntu recognize it as a stereo device. What you can do is configure your pulse daemon to play stereo sources only in stereo, instead of "remixing" them into surround. Put this in your /etc/pulse/daemon.conf: enable-remixing = no After that, simply run a: pulseaudio --kill Your pulse daemon will ...

Try opening pavucontrol and going to the "Configuration" tab. If it shows an "Internal Audio" device with a "Profile" drop-down selection box, drop it down and switch from "Analog Stereo Output" to "Analog Stereo Duplex". This should give you another device named "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" with port "Microphone" in the "Input Devices" tab. This input ...

Try to change output device to "Digital Output" and see if the headphones works . In modern laptops Digital and Analog Output can share the headphone jack which makes the kernel to not success to deduce the output purpose from the pin codec information. It is still a bug but at least you could use the headphones.

Two-part solution. The first part I found by trial-and-error: Removing the oss4 packages: sudo apt-get remove --purge oss4-base oss4-dev restored my sound immediately. I didn't even have to log out, much less reboot. However, I still had no sound icon. A search on that problem led me here, which told me to install package kmix. I tried it. It didn'...

alsa is really not suited to hotplugging , pulseaudio is far better suited to this mode of operation. My TV supports sending to bluetooth audio so i use that , with my old tv i used a dedicated bluetooth sender that i got with some Plantronic backbeat 903+ headphones. Bluetooth generally has a noticable latency so you will need to delay the video ...

I am guessing you have (you said you've tried Pulse Audio) but did you access it through pavucontrol? Have you tried amixer set Master 100 I have had some sound issues in Ubuntu 14.04 (now I'm using 16.04, but none yet...) which started after plugging in my headphones. I thought it had to do with the jack, but these steps fixed it for me. I think ...
