Your alsamixer settings show that the Mic is muted. Open a terminal and issue the command: alsamixer Use the arrow keys to highlight "Mic" which will be red. Tap the M key and use the up and down arrow keys to adjust. (I would start at the midway point and adjust until I got the results I wanted).

You can't remove Pulseaudio in Ubuntu 14.04 without breaking some dependencies. The sound indicator and the sound options panel, even the control center itself, are dependent on Pulseaudio. Pulseaudio is just a userspace daemon. But you can't simple kill Pulseaudio since it will be respawned by the init system. jorge@den:~$ ps aux | grep pulseaudio jorge ...

I have found a temporary way out, but this still confuses me. I have made a combined module, and after that I link every sound source I want to the combined one, which then routes to my system sounds and to the Streaming sink. STREAM_MODULE=$(pactl load-module module-null-sink sink_name=StreamAudio sink_properties=device.description="StreamAudio") ...

If you need command-line access, you can talk to it directly over DBUS. Here's an example I stole from Fran Diéguez: To pause: dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.spotify /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.Player.Pause Or to toggle: dbus-send --print-reply --dest=org.mpris.MediaPlayer2.spotify /org/mpris/MediaPlayer2 ...

Okay, I seem to have found a solution. It comes from here. The gist of it is this: In the /etc/pulse directory are the following files: client.conf daemon.conf default.pa system.pa Step 1: sudo nano default.pa Look for the following lines: *Automatically load driver modules depending on the hardware available Ugly hack for Nexus 10 .ifexists ...

:) 1st, high votes Related Question should point you to solution: How to change pulseaudio sink with “pacmd set-default-sink” during playback? You may need to disable stream target device restore by editing the corresponding line in /etc/pulse/default.pa to: load-module module-stream-restore restore_device=false Then try: sudo apt-get install ...

I know this is a really old question, but this may still help users in the future with this problem. You need make sure that you have these two commands present at the beginning of your /etc/pulse/default.pa file: load-module module-card-restore load-module module-device-restore These deal with saving the volumes of virtual pulseaudio cards and physical ...

A bit late in the day but I recently got similar static background noise issue with my laptop's internal microphone (same Realtek chipset I believe but solution should work for all soundcards). After looking around, there is indeed a way to reduce noise in realtime in pulseaudio using webrtc echo-cancel plugin (the default speex echo-cancel in Ubuntu/Mint ...

I added my user to the 'audio' group and after re-logging in, it was fixed. $ usermod -a -G audio myuser I noticed when aplay wasn't able to list devices as a user: myuser: # aplay -l aplay: device_list:268: no soundcards found... root: # aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC892 ...

The Freebox probably makes use of Shairport/Airport Express 2nd gen. These only use UDP while Pulseaudio-raop is only capable of using TCP. It is a known bug and already existing for several years :( Please subscribe to the bug at launchpad to generate as much exposure as possible to get it fixed soon :D ...

The 3rd log shows audio underuns in Pulseaudio due to high cpu load, so i would try to disable Pulseaudio to see if Alsa only is better : Run this 2 commands in terminal: echo autospawn=no > ~/.pulse/client.conf pulseaudio -k This will stop pulseaudio, then relaunch your software and test . You can set alsa layer volume with alsamixer in a terminal ...

If you haven't already, I suggest you install pavucontrol to give you a good view of what pulseaudio thinks is going on. In alsamixer, check and make sure that the right sound card is selected. I suggest you might try asking on the linuxmusicians forum, where the knowledge level of linux audio is pretty high.
