You should not need JACK, audio interfaces supporting the USB audio standard (all versions) should work without you having to do anything. In fact, installing JACK may very well be the source of your problems. Usually it is the other way round: USB audio devices work on Linux out of the box while drivers are needed for Windows. The most frequent problem is ...

I've used MaryTTS for a while and I think it's (most likely) the best TTS engine for Ubuntu. It British and American English, German, French, Italian, Swedish, Russian, Turkish, and Telugu with more languages down the line. It also offers the choice of creating a new voice, so you can tailor it to suit your needs.

Answer to myself: I don't know why, but opening sound settings and running sound test for left and right speaker enabled the sounds again. Sigh.. Still no sound with Renoise.

I experienced a similar problem. In my case speech-dispatcher was not installed, but that doesn't seem to be the case for you. I recommend running: sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils alsa-tools libasound2 libasound2-plugins this will ensure that all the necessary packages are installed. Follow this with: sudo alsa force-reload to reload your alsa ...

Heemayl probably nailed it. The thing is certain software isn't part of GNU or open-source. Installing the "restricted" extras should solve it. As to why they're not included in distros (if you'll pardon the non-technical answer) is the same reason lawyers don't go to the beach. Cats keep trying to bury them :}

Thanks to Deus, doing the following helped: sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras The command most appropriate to your version of Ubuntu can be found here. I am using Kubuntu 14.10 presently.

I looked and found this one in the software center. It is called Pulseaudio Volume Meter (Playback) It will be found on the side, but you just double click on the icon and then you can drag and drop it wherever you would like.

From the speech-dispatcher man pages: DESCRIPTION speech-dispatcher is a server process that is responsible for trans‐ forming requests for text-to-speech output into actual speech hearable in the speakers.

Short answer: You do need to compile it as described on the page you linked. I had the same issue on Ubuntu 12.04: The package libasound2-plugins was installed according to Ubuntu's software center and some files belonging to it could be located. However, I got aplay -D a52:0 chan-id.wav ALSA lib dlmisc.c:254:(snd1_dlobj_cache_get) Cannot open shared ...

I found the solution hidden in a comment on unix.stackexchange. Use pactl list sink-inputs to find your application's sink input number. Then use pactl set-sink-input-volume [sink number] [volume percent] to set the volume of your application.

Although similar, the pepper flash that comes with chrome is different than the one that is installed from the repos (adobe-flashplugin, or sth like that). I know there is a way to tell firefox to use chrome's but I've never looked into that so not sure if that is your case. Sadly when it comes to flash I think other than checking you are in the latest ...

My Viber didn't play any sound notification in my Sony Vaio with Ubuntu 14.04. I fix it changing the "Audio Output" on Viber Settings>Audio & Video. I hope this can solve your problem too. Best Regards, Rachid

That was not the whole problem as I see now. You see, after the re-installation of the alsa drivers, there was no 'sound indicator' in the system tray. I tried to access system options but... there were only some of them, like here. I needed to re-install the unity-control-center and that did the trick. Finally, Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! ;-) Could you ...

Try running locate libasound_module_pcm_a52.la and locate libasound_module_pcm_a52.so and see what they return. I belive you mentioned you may have already installed this but please confirm if you have installed this package: libasound2-plugins.

Back up your data and do a fresh installation of 14.04 LTS. I don't think 14.10 is well suited for you.

First of all: don't use fdisk -l any more. It's deprecated as it doesn't support GPT. Use parted --list from now on. Then, you've very probably run into something called security through obscurity: the manufacturer of the device needs some space to hide its firmware but still making it accessible for its update process... There are a number of ways to ...

Speakers and Headphones are often listed as the same Device on Ubuntu, but sometimes the System does not realize changing output device. Sound Settings only shows available sound devices. E.g. a digital HDMI and an analog Speaker/Headphones If you can't hear anything, it sometimes help to double-click on the Device you want to use!

Takkat provided the answer as a comment, so I am writing this "answer" to close out my question. Basically, AirPlay is not currently functioning with Pulseaudio without hack.

As suggested in How can I enable digital output on a FiiO E7 without ending session?, to enable digital output you need to kill PulseAudio: pulseaudio -k Then you should be able to see a device like the FiiO USB Audio Class 2.0 DAC Digital Stereo (IEC958), with PulseAudio Mixer reporting something like a Digital Output (S/PDIF) port.

As discussed in What does USB DAC "Analog Output" mean?, I suspect that Analog Output means that the OS will first pass the digital stream to the inbuilt, computer DAC device (i.e. sound card), and then the analog stream will be passed on to the USB device for amplification and further to your headphones/speakers. The improvement in quality (versus ...

Analog Output means that the OS will first pass the digital stream to the inbuilt, computer DAC device (i.e. sound card), and then the analog stream will be passed on to the USB device for amplification and further to your headphones/speakers.

For those who do not have /active-card, it is not needed anyway, nor is the xfce4-mixer. The sound is going through PulseAudio and therefore the "default" device is selected by the configuration of PulseAudio, and xfce4-volumed will only change the "default" outputs volume. However you can use PulseAudios configuration tool for this, pacmd. $ pacmd Welcome ...

I found out that the problem actually was that the Logitech G430 Gaming Headset was not connected directly but via a USB hub. The solution was to connect the headset directly to the USB ports on the main board.

As it turns out, I am a dork. When in the audio settings, in the farthest-right tab of profiles, the profile for the HDMI was set to "unplugged". Why that is even an option, who knows. However, I changed it to the "plugged in" profile, and everything worked fine.

.asoundrc is not created by default. This file is only used to add user-specific parameters as you want to do now. So yes, you can create it manually. You can find more info in the ALSA project wiki.
