It is hard coded in the source code, but the change is quite simple. There is, however, a ready-made package that can be found here: $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/sound1 $ sudo aptitude update $ sudo aptitude safe-upgrade The indicator-sound will be upgraded. EDIT: According to Launchpad bug #961745, xfce4-mixer was replaced by pavucontrol on ...

I'm running Alienware m14x with Windows 7, and I had the same problem. I'm not exactly sure how I fixed it, but I went through a bunch of different stuff to try to fix it (none of which actually worked individually, but may have contributed to my solution), then I uninstalled the SoundBlaster Recon 3Di system on Windows, and when I went back to ubuntu, the ...

Select correct input jack in "input device" tab from "Pulseaudio volume control" Type this command in terminal (vlc and vlc-plugin-pulse must be installed ): vlc pulse:// Vlc will capture pulseaudio recorded signal and play it to the default pulse output (speaker or headphone).

I followed the instructions in https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure step by step (until step 4). After that the sound was back, but I heard a loud static noise. I fixed that by changing the mic volume settings with alsamixer.

Basically using HDAJackRetask (from the package alsa-tools-gui) using Internal Speaker (Back) for Pin 0x10 and from and a specific device Output (Sound configuration). The profile "Test Speaker" doesn't show the subwoofer, yet I tested it with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PC7WEQsiz08 and the vibration is noticeable and ...

With more digging on the launchpad i've found an answer to the mouse scroll issue. My mouse is Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 1000 and during dual booting (MS Windows -> Ubuntu) the mentioned bug can happen. Solution is to use resetmouse. More detailed answer is on: Mouse wheel scrolling too fast

This is a pretty straight forward problem. I believe that Linux places your headphone jack in a state that Windows can not recognize. I have found that doing a cold shutdown (Holding power button for 10 sec.) of Linux and then booting into Windows will often fix this problem.

Solved it :P The problem was about the ALAC codec, fixed by installing libavcodec-extra-54 (had to uninstall a bunch of other packages, sadly). Then rhythmbox suggested an additional gstreamer plug-in and now everything's fine.

Skype 4.3 can only use pulseaudio sound daemon to output sound. As I understand you have no sound at all in skype so I guess you either don't have pulseaudio or you don't have it running. I would recommend you to install pavucontrol and try to figure out if you have sound input/output working. So the solution: sudo apt-get install pavucontrol; pavucontrol ...

Because the question is not specified for Unity only, I'll make a little hint about KDEs Konsole. You just should specify a sound for a "Bell in Visible Session" which is under Settings -> Configure Notifications. For example I'm using sounds from /usr/share/sounds/ section. I don't remember is there such an option in Ubuntu's Unity terminal.

I have the same problem. When headphones are connected to front jack, ubuntu automatically turn off speakers. It is not configurable from the alsamixer... when front jack is connected, works only front jack. I'm very often using toggle between headphones to speakers, in ubuntu 12.04 it works programmatically but in 14.04 can only disconnect front jack, to ...

Just fixed my audio issues spent days updating drivers and it ended up being the most basic setting. Permissions, add yourself to the "audio" group. So pop out to terminal and execute the following command. sudo adduser your_linux_user_account audio Hope it works for you as well. It's odd that you are not automatically in that group as sound is an ...

How do I find out this information? You google 'x220 line-in' and find lots and lots of pages, among them the manual. So it is both line-in and line-out, but with a limitation: The combo audio jack does not support a conventional microphone

Similar problem (Xubuntu 14.04). After updating, sound sometimes stops working, even though both input and output show graphically as working in Pulse controls. Sometimes it has been restored by changing selections in the Configuration tab, but sometimes not. This is extremely frustrating, as it seems to be random both as to when updates do this, and when ...

Do you have dual boot with windows8 ? In this case, you have to switch off computer from windows (not reboot) , else sound card is in strange state (no speaker ). Also test with alsamixer launched in a terminal and tweak the "automute " switch (normaly must be enabled but...) and speaker volume About alsamixer

Just go to ubuntu-software-centre and in there go to installed programs and remove or un-install those programs you don't want.

My problem seems to have fixed itself. Possibly due to the fact that I've changed video drivers from Nouveau to the NVIDIA binary driver.

I remember having a similar issue in the past. One thing I remember having to do previously is right-click on the volume indicator and you may need to select your output device. There was a change made during the 4.8 era and it switched to a different applet for volume control and I believe I ran into the same problem when that happened for me as well.

Try: xfce4-mixer In there the "settings" are in choosing the Sound card and the Controls. If you don't do either you may indeed end up with an empty-looking up. Does this work for you?

Solved! After the ALSA upgrade failed, i opened Software center. It showed me an error that some module is not right and gave me the option to repair it automatically. I did and then ran the install again(sudo dpkg -i filename). It worked this time. Restarted the system, chose HDMI output from sound settings and voila! I think the problem was that i forgot ...

After doing some research, I found out that the problem was with me having dual boot with windows 8.1. Found the answer on this thread. As it turned out, I already had disabled Fast boot in Windows 8.1. In addition to that, I discovered I had to fully turn off from Windows and then turn on the laptop again. Restart does not work. Marking this as the answer. ...

I do not know which settings you see in the sound controls, but to be sure: Take a look at the tabs "Playback" and "Output Devices" of pavucontrol. It could be that "Playback" shows something like you had before, but "Output Devices" was not changeable from there, and maybe set to a low value.

Lingot's default sound input device is set to a raw Alsa input (e.g. plughw:0). In the Ubuntu desktop these inputs are opened in exclusive mode by PulseAudio, preventing other applications from opening them. The solution is to make Lingot use the sound input device provided by PulseAudio, which is called pulse. Either edit Lingot's configuration file ...

I had many issues with my late 2013 iMac 21.5" as well. The setup which currently works for me is the following: Pulseaudio and alsa default settings in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, make sure you have the following option options snd-hda-intel model=imac27_122 Then, speakers should work out of the box. To fix headphones, I had to use hda_analyzer.py, ...

A lightweight application which does just this is lingot. Other options: fmit - Free Music Instrument Tuner gtkguitune - Guitar and other instruments tuner gxtuner - Tuner for Jack zita-at1 - JACK autotuner Note: when you run lingot from within your Ubuntu desktop environment, set the audio device to pulse.

I have found a solution for this problem. Appearantly, ALSA did not like the USB sound device that I was using. It is one of the cheap $2 ones that look like a USB stick w/headphone jack. Either way, I attached an old SB Live! PCI card I had laying around, booted up the machine and alsamixer worked with no problem. I can switch between the 2 devices and the ...

In ubuntu there is such tool as alsamixer. Check if you have that in your distro. If you do, see if below the headphones bar there is two M letters , MM. That would mean headphones are muted. pressing m unmutes them. Check if that works. Alternatively, this could be a hardware issue, in which case i'd suggest usb headphones or bluetooth

If you have sound in your guest account, then most likely you have accidentally done something wrong to the pulse audio configuration in your own account. Try removing (or renaming, just to be on the safe side) the pulse subdirectory of the .config directory of the account that has no audio: cd ~/.config mv pulse pulse-renamed Then log out of your ...

The "Remove Vocals" option in most programs uses a clever trick. Usually when recording a song, the vocals are centered, meaning they are present at an equal volume in both the left and right channels. On the other hand, usually instruments are off-center, meaning they are louder in either the left or the right channel. Therefore, you can try to remove ...
