I just downloaded Lubuntu 14.10 and installed it, everything is fine except my headphones are not working at all.

I am using Asus X550CA Laptop and internal speaker works well but when I plug in headphones in my 3.5mm audio jack, I just don't hear anything. When I unplug them, sound resumes coming out from Laptop's speakers. And yes, headphones are working on windows and Fedora.

  • have you tried to go to the sound setting and setting the output to headphones – Avishek Saha Dec 6 '14 at 16:29
  • Also make sure headphones were not muted. – Takkat Dec 6 '14 at 16:59
  • Open a terminal and type in alsamixer. There make sure that headphones are unmuted. – linuxpowerlover Dec 12 '14 at 23:15
  • Take a look on this article. – gwarah Jul 11 '16 at 13:23

It's been quite a while since you asked, but I was having the same problem with an iMac and here's what I did: I added the following line: options snd-hda-intel model=imac27_122 to the file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf. Notice how I appended my mac's model to the end of the line. Perhaps you could try it, only changing your model.
