View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Audio with Ubuntu 9.04

April 26th, 2009, 02:36 PM
I have used Ubuntu before, Ubuntu 8.10, and experienced graphics problems (the screen were too blurry) so I left it and continued using Windows, then I heard 9.04 has come out so I've installed it and now I have audio issues, but pleased to say there's no graphical issues (that I can tell so far).

I have recently installed Ubuntu 9.04 on my Packard Bell iMedia 1508 /2 using the application like installation (i.e. installing it as an application within Windows; or at least using that option from the installation menu).

I've tried all sorts including the following:




and still no joy. I'm really impressed by Ubuntu and would love to use it, but without audio I cannot.

I am a fairly technological savvy guy when it comes to Windows and hardware, but when it comes to Ubuntu (and Mac) I'm just a noOb that knows a few tricks.

Here's what comes up when using lspci.
