Open a Terminal window and type: aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav You should hear a voice saying "Front Center". If it doesn't play the first time you run that command, try running it again as root: sudo aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav If it still doesn't play, that means there is a problem with your configuration. ...

If you've tried it on Windows and it doesn't work there, this isn't an Ubuntu problem. We can't really help you with that. Try contacting your administrator or the vendor of your hardware. Cheers

If you remove libjack0 (and the packages depending on it) and install the packages listed to be removed in your question then your Ubuntu installation will be almost like it was before you removed the latter. “Almost” because a manual installation will mark them as "manually installed" in Apt which means that they can no longer be auto-removed when no ...

Usually works this way, If you know exactly which packages had been removed, then everything should be ok after reinstalling them again, unless You also purged a configuration then your custom settings will be gone. If OS informed you that all those packages will be removed, then either you really don't need them, or they have some kind of conflict with new ...

I came across your question just now as I had exactly the same issue. I found the answer in this question solved the issue for me. In my screen I had to ensure "Allow louder than 100%" was checked before the "unamplified" setting was visible.

Before anything, make sure your sound is not muted. ALSA and Pulse don't get together well. They are conflicting each other most of the times. Unless ALSA is specifically required by an app or hardware i recommend using only Pulse (it's newer and better). First, remove alsa completely by opening a Terminal window and typing: sudo apt-get remove ...

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). ...

Funny enough for me in similar situation helps changing display resolution from 1280x720 16x9 to 800x600 4x3. HDMI sound appears in 100% cases! Then I switch resolution back, sound sometimes stays.

You can set most important settings by installing alsamixer and then run the console version of it. It allows you to change headphone impedence and dac filter rolloff For the tonal settings I'm too looking for some solution.

Alright, I think I've got something you can try. If you search for Multimedia Systems Select on the Dash. Open it and go to the Audio tab, where you can select the default audio Input and Output devices. This should be installed by default. If it isn't, you can always run sudo apt-get install gnome-media. If it is not shown in the Dash, run: gksudo gedit ...

Open a terminal and type lspci -v Check the audio controller section. You will also see what driver/kernel module is used. If you don't see any module then you do need a driver.

All my MP4s were "muted" for no apparent reason. I found that I had previously configured the sound to go to the HDMI port, but this time HDMI was not attached. So I just used the "Settings" control panel, "Sound" section to re-select "built-in speakers".

After searching and fiddling around some more, I finally found an interesting Archlinux wiki entry, which allowed me to come up with this piece of code to be added at the end of /etc/pulse/default.pa: load-module module-remap-sink sink_name=KompleteAudio6_12 sink_properties=device.description="Komplete\ Audio\ 6\ Output\ 1/2\ (Main)" remix=no ...

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", ...

Well, something must have happened in an update lately, because now it works properly. Plugging in headphones even comes up with a new dialogue asking if it is a set of headphones or a headset being plugged in (something I've never seen before).

Based on the line "active profile: <off>" the sound profile didn't activate. One program that is easy to use to change the profile is pavucontrol. You can install it with sudo apt install pavucontrol -y. Then run pavucontrol from the command line or Alt+F2 if you are on Kubuntu and entering pavucontrol. Select the configuration tab and then try ...

I've been looking for something similar, since I'm trying to de-dupe a large music archive, would like to keep the highest quality files, but don't trust the bitrates used. I've found fakeflac which seems like a good start. Don't let the name fool you, it's not FLAC-specific since it converts the given file to wav and operates on that using a Python script. ...

SOLVED => After disabling GPU support in VLC, everything was working fine I have to confirm this behaviour without DVD! I just installed Ubuntu LTS 16.04 and the VLC Player with no any extras.

I finally figured it out! You'll probably need to change the "grep -v" part of lines 3 and 4 depending on your sinks (and use egrep -v "sink1|sink2|sink3" to exclude multiple sinks). To run the script: bash (not sh) /path/to/script [-headphones, -speaker]. I set up custom keybinds in the settings menu that run the script with the different arguments. The ...

You can use pavucontrol (Pulseaudio volume control, install if necessary): Launch it from multimedia menu, go to the "output devices" tab, and click the green "define as alternative" button that is near HDMI soundcard. Look also "configuration" tab: you will find various profile such as HDMI .

Icecast is not the answer. It is not designed for very low latency. You can trim the delays down to below 1 second, but it's not consistent across multiple clients. So if you have more than one player connected they will start drifting apart. For use cases like you imply them a constant (sometimes even adjustable) sub 100ms latency is key. An approach more ...

First off, did you try attaching speakers / headphones to the rear analog output in case you have a defective cable / connector? Otherwise, I notice that your motherboard has a RealTek 892 audio codec, which another user had issues with.

After upgrading from Ubuntu 12.04 to 16.04, I had to uninstall this notification daemon to get the volume OSD to work: sudo apt purge notification-daemon Then log out and in again.

My take on this would be the following taking advantage of PulseAudio. Assuming that when you log in Ubuntu, you always have your headphones connected, then the following will make sure that when you boot to Ubuntu it will automatically set it as the default Input and Output (Assuming you want both). On Ubuntu go to the terminal and type the following from ...

May be vlc-plugin-pulse is not installed: run sudo apt-get install vlc-plugin-pulse in a terminal to verify. You can also change VLC, audio setting: go to "tools" => "preferences"=> "audio": try to select another "output module" ,: It could be alsa or pulseaudio depending on your audio config. (restart VLC after change)

I feel the same, looking've found that with some ALSA drivers could solve the problem, but I have not got, besides that my BIOS does not start the bootable usb not know why, but after ubuntu has not left boot me any another operating system. So I try to update the BIOS from ubuntu, and install Windows 10 again.

I have the same issue. The funny thing is that I can hear the sound of the login screen. What I also figured out is that VLC works if I configure audio to use ALSA. That makes me think the pulsaudio stuff is broken. After knowing that I started pulseaudio. I switched configuration, internal device, to Analog Stereo Duplex. It was configured to use Digital ...

I still do not understand why there was a problem, but reinstallation of alsa worked for me. sudo apt-get remove alsa-utils sudo apt-get install alsa-utils

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 ...
