  • Just an average guy trying to do my best to follow our Jesus Christ

_ In regards to Linux use. I'm pretty much only a user of Ubuntu and its derivatives (Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Gnome 3.x Varieties, and Elementary OS are my favorites) I'm not at all an advanced user and am only on my first few chapters of a beginners programming book (that went back to library, might buy it later when time and funds allow). So most answers I give won't be particularly technical unless I'm able to find tutorials or other kinds of information when searching for the answer.

_ I like to think of my self as a mix of average user in always wanting my software to be aesthetically pleasing, but more power user in how i tend to "stress" a system. A programmer's and developer's worst case scenario I think. :-)

comment Sharing files and devices between 2 Linux machines
Those are an interesting read. But between 2 Linux machines, Samba is not necessary as its intented to bridge between Windows and Linux, where Linux works natively.-----And though I could probably learn alot from reading about NFS, I know for sure I didn't go through all that with the older versions of Ubuntu, so things should be gettings easier newer versions, not harder. --------The only thing I might have done is right click on a directory > Properties > Then seen a "Sharing" tab at the top, or maybe was under permission, then allowed for everything. All GUI. Why is this not standard???

comment Sharing files and devices between 2 Linux machines
Haha true, but some apps have been relatively rock solid, despite my enjoyment of distro hopping. Guake, Synapse (GnomeDo clone) GDebi installer, Xiphos Bible software. Love graphical Linux is lately, while still being solid. :-)

comment Sound completely cut out, and Restart or Pulse Audio can't fix it
no it doesn't, I use Guake, which is why the terminal cover the whole top of the screen. Being not so tall, but so wide, makes the alsamixer squeeze into the small space, so it fits everything in the termianl easily. If I had a smaller terminal, it would do what your saying. But nope that is all the options alsamixer gives me.

Please read my newest update @RolandiXor. Sadly, the problem hasn't gone away. :-(

Updating a person who tried to answer with the result. Didn't fix the problem.

This is exactly the Terminal screen I was talking about. Thank you sir. Sadly it did not fix my problem though. :-( I just don't understand what could be causing it.

comment Sound completely cut out, and Restart or Pulse Audio can't fix it
@mohammadhmontazeri, that didn't change it either :-( I remember a long long time ago (about 2010 or so) when someone helped me fix a microphone problem with this same computer. And they had me go into the terminal and do some kind of command that brought up an interactive, almost atari like, settings menu inside the terminal itself. Had lots of colors and a black background (terminal normally had blue background). Where you changes lots of confusing and very technical settings. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I can't remember how to get to it.

comment Sound completely cut out, and Restart or Pulse Audio can't fix it
I'm sorry, but no this did not fix the issue. It did have available updates for alsa. No updates for pulseaudio though. I think I primarily use Pulse since I use the program "Pulseaudio Volume Control" for all my settings. Like I said, it works fine with Headphones. But not at all with out headphones. But inside a Live USB or Live CD, the audio works fine. So this is not a hardware issue. Isn't there a way to change some deeper settings?

comment Changing Launchpad username, and How to know what sites will be affected?
I can go to that page and it shows my account and list of sites. But the only thing I see to change is my Full Name, Email address. And password. It doesn't even show my username at all. Did Launchpad change somehow?

comment Sound completely cut out, and Restart or Pulse Audio can't fix it
No, Restarting into my normal Xubuntu install on the hard drive does not fix the problem. But using a Live USB does fix it sort of. But if while booted into that Live USB, I watch the same exact WebM video, the sound does the same thing about 5 to 10 minutes in. And nothing I do brings it back. No MP3's play, no OGG, no MP4 videos. Nothing. So this is not a hardware issue. Its complicated in the details, but I'm positive its a setting somewhere, but I have no idea how to find it. And Pulse Audio settings does not help.
