I plug in headphones and it's not detected at all same with my speakers. I try to use USB headphones and they pop up in the sound options as Logitech headphones. I want to get the green headphone jack working - I'm on Ubuntu 14.10.

In alsamixer the headphone option cannot be changed with the arrow keys - please help.

Card: HD-Audio Generic

Chip: Realtek ALC662 rev1

  • You just did, though commenting with no actual info is not good here. As for drawing more attention to a question, you have no reputation on this site yet but once you have a lot, you can offer bounties if you want to give questions more attention. It consumes some of your rep eg 50 points. – thomasrutter Jun 17 '15 at 13:30

It might correct sound card has not been selected.
You can select the sound card in the F6 key in alsamixer.
(If you can use a GUI environment, pavucontrol is recommended.)

  • The right soundcard was selected, i dont know what else to do,it has nothing to do with the sound card, the green audio jack is the problem because it's not detectign what i plugin,yet when i plug in a usb headset it detects it instantly – Manuel Reyes Jun 16 '15 at 22:46
