I'm brand new to Ubuntu. Just installed Ubuntu 14.04 (trusty) on my old Abit KN8 SLI. Everything works except sound. I went through all the troubleshooting steps here and it still doesn't work:


The sound manager shows 4 devices:

Digital Output (S/PDIF)
Analog Output / No Amplifier
Analog Output / Amplifier
HDMI / DisplayPort (Radeon HD 2350/2400 Series)

I've tried all 4 and no sound. I currently have speakers plugged into the audio jack on the back of the case, and I'm also using HDMI for video.

Sound is at 100% in the sound manager. aplay -l shows:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: CK804 [NVidia CK804], device 0: Intel ICH [NVidia CK804]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: CK804 [NVidia CK804], device 2: Intel ICH - IEC958 [NVidia CK804 - IEC958]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I don't know what to do. Please help, thanks!

  • If you go to "System settings" - "Sound". Which of the four audio devices is selected??? – Fabby Nov 23 '14 at 14:12
