To fix the issue of firmware not working for a Broadcom Bluetooth you need to perform two steps (1) see: Bluetooth Broadcom 43142 isn't working on ubuntu, and (2) uninstall 'Blueman'. In my post I already worked through Pilot6's fix (step 1); but my bluetooth device was still not playing music (Was connected but still not playing music). Next I ...

So, I tried the drivers, and it said that my os is not compatible. I found that indicator-cpufreq helps, it looks like my cpu governor was set to performance, I can manually set the frequency and the laptop runs much quieter!

What worked for me was moving ~/.config/pulse to ~/.config/pulseold. Re-installed my base system and seems that pulseaudio kept crashing trying to use my old configs.

I've had the same problem since Ubuntu Gnome 15.04. I have a photive speaker that supports both A2DP and headset modes. It works with my android phone, with the same computer in Windows 10, and with another computer running Fedora 23. I believe it also worked with Linux Mint on the same hardware. But it's never worked with Ubuntu Gnome; it connects as a ...

I have this same problem, on a Dell e7250. I changed the hard drive and installed 16.04, which makes a crackling sound before the Ubuntu start-up sound. With 14.04 on the same machine with the old hard drive there was no crackle.

it was true... The package build for 16.04 was corrupt. Now, 4 days later, updating the ALSA drivers work! Unfortunately it doesnt resolve my issue with my sound over hdmi with my nvidia gtx780... Best regards,

I fixed this issue by setting fixed pulse profile to output:hdmi-stereo on resume. To get a list of pulse profiles: pacmd list-cards. To change pulse profile e.g.: pacmd set-card-profile 0 output:hdmi-stereo. About running script after suspend: Run Script on Wakeup? About running pacmd as root: [Solved] Control pulseaudio with shell script via pacmd / ...

In addition to changing default-sample-channels in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf, it was also necessary to launch alsamixer and change the number of channels to 6: Note: you may need to restart between changing daemon.conf and using alsamixer.

Basic system software packages like ubuntu-desktop, unity-control-center and unity-control-center-signon depend on the pulseaudio package. If you uninstall pulseaudio, those packages will be removed too, leaving your system pretty empty. To fix this, you could reinstall those packages using the package manager: sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop ...

The problem turned out to be more complicated than originally thought and kept re-appearing on reboot. Thanks a lot to @nakasya for pointing out that it's a bug in fwupd that appeared when upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04. Refer to Problems with Audio device - Ubuntu 16.04 . The temporary workaround until the fix is included in the main release is to run sudo ...

Based upon what you've said, yes, do a re-install. If you want to save your data, boot from a live CD and copy the contents of your /home folder to an external drive. Then re-install, and once booted, you can copy your data back to the internal disk.

Use Simple Sceen recorder. Works fine with 16.04 LTS. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:maarten-baert/simplescreenrecorder sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install simplescreenrecorder

Ubuntu doesn't suit well on too old machines. For those i would suggest a debian installation, which uses less ram memory than Ubuntu. But if you try it anyway, it would really face all those problems you mentioned, which demands reconfiguration.

I'm not quite sure how Ubuntu would handle it, it might be able to auto-detect, BUT the amount of RAM doesn't live up the recommended amount: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements

I have a similar problem. Open alsamixer via Terminal and check out the headphones column. If it's at 0, increase the volume. At least in my case, every time I log in into my Xubuntu account sound doesn't come out although Master is above zero and I have to set a higher Headphones value manually. I hope it's only a temporary bug that will be fixed soon.

Had this same issue, try sudo apt-get remove fwupd, see: https://askubuntu.com/a/766069/538252

I was having this exact same issue after upgrading to 16.04 with my Focusrite Saffire 2i4, I finally found this and fixed it with this command, then rebooting: sudo apt-get remove fwupd You probably don't want to do that if you actually need fwupd, but it looks like there's already a bug report out there, hopefully it will get fixed soon.

I had the same problem after upgrading to 16.04. For me, there isn't a real fix, but I can get the speaker to work. I'm running Kubuntu so these steps are for KDE, and I'm not sure what the equivalent Unity steps are, but I'd imagine they're similar. Here's what I did: Let the speaker connect. In your audio settings, change the profile to "Headset Head ...

I found an answer that worked for me with a similar issue. Changing default-fragment-size-msec to 5 instead of the default 25 in /etc/pulse/daemon.conf (on Ubuntu 16.04, at least) and restarting the PulseAudio daemon helped fix the issue for my needs. Might be worth a shot if you haven't found another solution yet.

I had the same problem. On https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bluetooth_headset I found this: Note: The device may be off by default. Select its audio profile (OFF, A2DP, HFP) in the "Configuration" tab of pavucontrol. After selecting A2DP there was sound.

I started reading a lot about PulseAudio and "hidden" options it had so I could find one that was similar to this question. The one I found was the noise-cancellation module, which is one that dramatically lowers any static noise on the microphone and even A LOT of the background noise, basically giving you the benefit of only recording your own voice with ...

System beep sounds on boot usually are not controlled by Ubuntu (or any other OS). In most BIOS we have beep codes to indicate hardware issues on boot which will be played on a tiny speaker on the motherboard. Some BIOS allow configuring the internal speaker, e.g.: On a desktop computer we can also physically remove the beeper from the motherboard: ...

I had a similar problem but I after trying many things including uninstalling and reinstalling alsa-base and pulseaudio, what finally worked is the removal of the pulse folder under the .config folder inside my home folder.

This laptop comes with a Windows program called Health Monitor. When this runs it shows the CPU and GPU temperatures and the fan speed. Clearly the sensors are there, however sensors-detect can't find them.

It seems that this user-interface aspect is being redesigned at the moment. There is a blog post that is describing the problem, proposing a solution, and requesting feedback. Do check it out here: http://davidrosca.blogspot.ca/2016/04/audio-volume-improvements-in-plasma-57.html

With the -iA option, Timidity runs as a daemon to output the data in real time to the sound card.

I had a similar issue, it seems a little picky about what it will connect to. It wouldn't work with my monitor through a HDMI to DVI converter or in my TV through its second HDMI port, which is labled as a HDMI/DVI. It did however work in a different HDMI port (HDMI 1). So this is rather a long way of saying try a different port

Run: $ pacmd list-cards To display the index of your cards. For example, my pci sound card is at index 2. The sound profile for analogue output (again as an example) is called "output:analog-stereo". Then: $ pacmd set-card-profile 2 output:analog-stereo To set this as the output (give it a try). To make it permanent, edit /etc/pulse/default.pa and ...

You can search additional drivers in the dash and it will give you the option to search for any additional drivers that the system might find missing. Hope this helps! leave me alone Tim

As KDE 5 seems to be just frontend for PulseAudio, you can use direct access to PulseAudio with pactl command. You will have to experiment a little bit to find a correct settings for you exact setup, but I would recommend excellent Arch Linux wiki on Pulse Audio, the Pulse Audio Configuration and Examples. After figuring the correct commands, create a ...

HD voice aka wideband audio works. Confirmed with a Meizu MX4.

You cannot have more than one options line for the same module. The first two indexes are taken by the two HDA devices, so it is not possible to force the USB device to have index 1. To move the second HDA device to the third index, use something like this: options snd-hda-intel index=0,2

I'm on Ubuntu gnome 16.04. Solution is to enable auto-detection, pair the headset again and select it in the list of output audio devices.

I had a similar problem. Sometimes it is impossible to prevent applications from trying to adjust the microphone level.
