It looks like the kernel module for sound isn't loaded. Try enabling the following modules with modprobe <module> snd_hda_codec_realtek snd_hda_codec_generic snd_hda_intel snd_hda_controller snd_hda_codec snd_hwdep snd_pcm snd_timer snd soundcore

That looks like a problem with GStreamer. Try to set the media.gstreamer.enabled pref to false on the about:config page.

If you install an app called "pavucontrol", you can look at which applications are playing audio, and which device they are sending audio to on a per-application basis. Because (as far as I know) firefox does not have any way to select an audio output device, if you change the output device for an application it will retain that information.... my guess is ...

I discovered the answer to this, somewhat by accident. Rather than load the modules as the WebUpd8 page says, I just started qpaeq and set my output device in Sound Settings to FFT Based Equalizer. It says it's using an ALSA sink (alsa_output.pci-0000_00_14.2-analog-stereo-equalizer or something like that), and it works properly. I tried adjusting the ...

For me the stuttering happened when changing the volume of the song that's playing or when for example playing a song and another sound plays in between then the sound will stutter a bit. In that case, just mute your microphone if you have one connected (or built-in in your laptop like in my case), then the stuttering stops.

I was able to get audio back by starting a program called Cadence and then within Cadence starting JACK and then starting the ALSA->Loop->Jack bridge. I have no idea why this is now needed, but then I have no idea what very recent update disabled audio from automatically playing. With JACK and the ALSA to JACK brige running, I now have audio again from ...

Ok, I have discovered that it is possible and I discovered how: I installed all bluez (bluez + bluez-*) packages and purged any other application related to bluetooth (blueman, bluewho, etc.). I do not know if this is strictly relevant, but until I didn't do this I couldn't manage to connect to the speakers. I also installed all the pulseaudio utilities ...

I actually had a problem with audio too. What fixed it for me was to remove the PulseAudio configuration files. Delete the folder named Pulse* under ~/.config.

If you are using only the free driver (not Catalyst) try a kernel build from here: http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/ 4.1.6 should be good enough. Read here on how to choose the correct packages to install: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/MainlineBuilds

Open System Settings by clicking the "gear" icon in the top-right corner of your screen. Under "Hardware", you will see "Bluetooth". Open the "Bluetooth" sub-menu by clicking on that. Search for devices and press the "Pair" button that should be on your hearing aids. You will see your hearing aids appear in the list of devices. Click on them to pair.

RecordMyDesktop first records everything as raw data and writes it onto the disk (/tmp). It then renders the video after it was completely captured. This shouldn't have the problem, which could be caused by running out of ram, using too much CPU power, etc. RecordMyDesktop barely uses any ram or CPU power while recording.

Well, this worked for me and it is really easy : Open PulseAudio Volume Control (open a terminal and type pavucontrol). Install it if you don't have it. When you open it, go to "Configuration" : For one of the "built in audios" one has HDMI (unplugged) in front of "Profile". Choose "Off" for that profile.

I like libgnome2-0. sudo apt-get install libgnome2-0 Then, after you have installed this program, all you have to do is type this: cd Music gnome-open example.mp3 Just replace "example" with whatever your mp3 file name is and "user" with your username.

Not sure if your server will support it, but VLC also has a command line version that can play (with the right packages) MP3 files: nvlc file.mp3 The 'n' in front of 'vlc' invokes the ncurses interface which is for the command line. This allows you to play multiple files, pause and control the files being played.

I had the same problem.

I have struggled with this for a while. I have, however, found a solution today for getting the output to not come in through the mic. It turns out that the mic is set to stereo, and I am guessing my port is mono. Or it's the other way around. Either way, this was the fix for me: Run PulseAudio Volume Control (or pavucontrol from the ALT+F2 menu) Under ...
