I had the same problem after upgrading to 16.04. For me, there isn't a real fix, but I can get the speaker to work. I'm running Kubuntu so these steps are for KDE, and I'm not sure what the equivalent Unity steps are, but I'd imagine they're similar. Here's what I did: Let the speaker connect. In your audio settings, change the profile to "Headset Head ...

There are several bugs opened about this, check for example this one (started in 15.05) and this other one, quite older; the causes in general are not well understood. The fix that worked for me is the following --- thanks to user RobertFM in launchpad and SimFox3 in Arch forums. All the following instructions must be executed from a root shell (sudo -i). ...

Yes you can create a pulseaudio profile to get the Focusrite 18i8 working in stereo. Create the file /lib/udev/rules.d/91-pulseaudio.rules: SUBSYSTEM!="sound", GOTO="pulseaudio1_end" ACTION!="change", GOTO="pulseaudio1_end" KERNEL!="card*", GOTO="pulseaudio1_end" SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="1235", ATTRS{idProduct}=="8014", ...

I started reading a lot about PulseAudio and "hidden" options it had so I could find one that was similar to this question. The one I found was the noise-cancellation module, which is one that dramatically lowers any static noise on the microphone and even A LOT of the background noise, basically giving you the benefit of only recording your own voice with ...

The problem turned out to be more complicated than originally thought and kept re-appearing on reboot. Thanks a lot to @nakasya for pointing out that it's a bug in fwupd that appeared when upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04. Refer to Problems with Audio device - Ubuntu 16.04 . The temporary workaround until the fix is included in the main release is to run sudo ...

The issue is that Ubuntu 16.04 defaults to HDMI as default audio if HDMI is present on your computer. In my case, it does see my Sound Blaster Audigy 2 card, but HDMI (from my video cards) is set as default; and the way to change that differs from how you did that in 14.04. The files, folders and procedures almost work, but don't if you follow 14.04's "No ...

I follow MttG in #2 but not work, it only show HDMI card, my system: core i5 6500 skylake, realtek ALC887 and using gtx 950 with HDMI to monitor, so, AFTER LONG TIME I FOUND: sudo gedit /etc/asound.conf That show: defaults.pcm.card 1 defaults.pcm.device 1 BUT my device 1 is HDMI, and DEVICE 0 is REALTEK, I edit that to: defaults.pcm.card 1 ...

For me, Tim's code didn't quite work. I had to do this: import alsaaudio m = alsaaudio.Mixer(alsaaudio.mixers[0]) # alsaaudio.mixers = ["PCM"] for me. m.setvolume(90) # Or whatever It may be due to my weird / broken .asoundrc config file. But given that there is no actual reference documentation for .asoundrc - just some random examples - I don't think ...

As KDE 5 seems to be just frontend for PulseAudio, you can use direct access to PulseAudio with pactl command. You will have to experiment a little bit to find a correct settings for you exact setup, but I would recommend excellent Arch Linux wiki on Pulse Audio, the Pulse Audio Configuration and Examples. After figuring the correct commands, create a ...

It seems that this user-interface aspect is being redesigned at the moment. There is a blog post that is describing the problem, proposing a solution, and requesting feedback. Do check it out here: http://davidrosca.blogspot.ca/2016/04/audio-volume-improvements-in-plasma-57.html

Basic system software packages like ubuntu-desktop, unity-control-center and unity-control-center-signon depend on the pulseaudio package. If you uninstall pulseaudio, those packages will be removed too, leaving your system pretty empty. To fix this, you could reinstall those packages using the package manager: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop ...

Close any open audio programs. Stop the daemon from respawning: sudo nano /etc/pulse/client.conf Uncomment the line that reads: ; autospawn = yes to say: autospawn = no Then press CTRL+X to save these changes. Stop the existing PulseAudio daemon from running: pulseaudio --kill Now try playing an audio file from a media player of your choice. ...
