Possibly this is just an output selection problem. Go to system settings -> sound and try the different audio outputs. Many graphic cards and onboard sound devices just select hdmi as the standard output...

The answer to this question solved the problem: gksudo gedit /usr/share/pulseaudio/alsa-mixer/paths/analog-output.conf.common and change: [Element PCM] volume = merge to: [Element PCM] volume = ignore

This is not meant to be a reply but a comment. I have a similar experience with my laptop when Skype is turned on. In your screen shots it looks like you use Skype as well. Maybe you can see if the problem disappears if you turn it off? Edit 1. In Skype's Options --> Sound uncheck the tick that allows Skype to automatically control the volume settings. ...

Some googling brought this up: Go into the Skype Options menu - Sound Devices - remove the tick at: Allow Skype to automatically adjust my mixer levels. Click Apply. Readjust the sound mixer controls.

Give a try to lmms. I'm not that professional in case of Audio, but I think this should help. To install run the command: sudo apt-get install lmms

This worked for me: sudo echo "options snd-hda-intel model=generic" \ >> /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and reboot your PC. For improving the out-of-the-box experience in Ubuntu, I filed bug 1457476, let's hope that this can be fixed once and for all.

The solution is here (thanks to Paul Wall). First try to do 2 cold reboot in Ubuntu (cold reboot means that do need to shutdown and power up and not reboot!). If you still have no sound, try sudo modprobe snd-soc-rt286 and then select the sound card in Systems Settings/Sound (for me, that worked). If you want to have the module automatically load at ...

As a temporary solution, i suggest you put that line into your .bashrc. The only problem is that it will run every time you open up a terminal.

Well I managed to fix it, but it isn't the solution I was looking for. I would have like to know how to properly troubleshoot the problem or understand where and how it originated. I basically re-installed gnome desktop and rebooted. sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop-enviornment Hope this helps some one else. Cheers

Permission errors are what is to expected if we put our HOME on a NTFS partition, because these will not support the Ubuntu file permissions at all. To shared data with Windows we therefore have to set up a dedicated data-only folder on this NTFS partition which will then be mounted to be accessible from Ubuntu. We can even put a symlink to these folder in ...

An alternative way that does not use the Control center is to use the sound switcher indicator (webup8 article).

First check your card hwC0D0 or hwC1D0: In my laptop hwC0D0 is for intel hdmi and hwC1D0 is for realtek alc663. You can know it with hdajackretask first is hwC0D0. Install hdajackretask and hda-jack-sense-test(hdajacksensetest in opensuse). First unplug subwoofer and run code below (-c 1 for hwC1D0) hdajacksensetest -a -s -c 1 Then attach and rerun. You ...

First off, let me tell you my qualifications: I have a degree in electronic engineering, a degree in audio engineering, and 23+ years experience doing both and as an IT professional. I say this not to brag, but so you will understand what qualifies me to give the advice I'm going to give you. The very first thing I'd tell you to do is try the microphone ...

You probably need to unmute alsamixer (this is separate from pulseaudio). Here is a link to the instructions I will reference along with other instructions in the rare event that this isn't the problem: http://www.unixmen.com/2012003-howto-resolve-nosound-problem-on-ubuntu/ . Here are the pertinent instructions for unmuting alsamixer: . 1. Bring up a ...

Don't remove it, it's part of the system. Pulseaudio is installed by default, something else must of gone wrong here but to answer your question. To stop pulse restarting run echo "autospawn = no" > $HOME/.config/pulse/client.conf This makes a file client.conf in .config/pulse that disables its autospawn, now you can kill it if you want pkill -f ...

Run the following command in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T): sudo alsa force-reload Reboot your machine and check it. If still with no sound, try reinstalling Alsa and Pulse audio : sudo apt-get remove --purge alsa-base pulseaudio sudo apt-get install alsa-base pulseaudio Then run this command again. sudo alsa force-reload Reboot your machine and check ...

according to Alsa logs you the models is not the name of laptops. you should test for example model=asus-mode1 and I think snd-hda-intel is not correct snd_hda_intel is correct so use options snd_hda_intel model=asus-mode4

I know this question is a year old, but I figured this out myself just moments ago. I have a machine (music@jukebox) and I discovered as long as I am logged in as the user music on the server I can log in simultaneously through ssh/putty/whatever on another machine and the audio plays through the speakers on the server machine just fine. I hope this helps. ...

Found out that the headset I was using isn't fully supported by ubuntu. If I used the volume controls on the headset, then the volume was screwed until I restarted the computer.

Open a terminal and type the following commands: sudo nano /etc/pulse/default.pa Press CTRL + w and type: load-module module-suspend-on-idle then press ENTER. Change the line to say this instead: # load-module module-suspend-on-idle This is called "commenting out" the line when you place a # at the beginning of the line the configuration listed on ...

You can usehdajackretask for that, which is part of the package alsa-tools-gui. You can install it with sudo apt-get install alsa-tools-gui.

I had the same problem (error: amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Master',0). When i added -c 1, the volume increase and decrease commands do not unmute and the toogle command (mute / unmute) does not unmute. On another post, i finded to add -D pulse instead of -c 1 and with this addon all commands are ok (increase and unmute, decrease and unmute, ...

Unfortunately the window size of the GNOME sound settings is hard-coded and can not be changed. It will adapt its size according to the length of display for a chosen audio sink. To overcome this we can use a custom name (device.description) for the rather lengthy combined sink to not list all slaves we had used. Rather than by running paprefs we create ...

Sorry to labour the point, but I've gone through my answer and found it full of gaps. I have written a full tutorial on the linux mint forum, to which I would like to refer anyone looking for this particular answer. So, here is the link. [Solved] Fix for ALSA Volume reset to 100% at boot/ reboot

I think the easiest way is to use Cadence from KXStudio. This solution is described on Jack website among others.

What's happening in this case is that PulseAudio locks the ALSA Backend that LMMS tries repeatedly to access (causing the high CPU) and since Pulse has it locked, LMMS can't send audio through. You can easily disable PulseAudio while using LMMS by launching LMMS with the command pasuspenderlmms. That, or you could just stick to using Pulse as your output, ...
