Hello to all!

I've searched in a lot of threads and all solutions didn't apply to my situation.

Last week I was hearing music with no problem, and yesterday I got no sound at all...

My laptop is a Vaio VPC-EB14FD with HDA Intel Realtek ALC269.

Now some outputs of my system:

uname -a

Linux sandro-laptop 2.6.32-22-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 3 22:02:19 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linuxaplay -l

Oh, and the system was upgraded from 9.10 version.

Thanks!

If you used the ALSA upgrade script, you need to re-run it with the -c and -i options after each kernel update.

Did you lose sound just after the upgrade to lucid?
Try this. Using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"


rm -r ~/.pulse ~/.asound*
sudo rm /etc/asound.conf
Logout/in.

I had the same problem for a long time (VAIO laptop, native speakers refuse to play). This fixed it, might work for you too.

Try installing "pulseaudio volume control", and running that program. It should be able to be installed by searching "pulseaudio volume control" into Applications>Ubuntu Software Center and clicking "install".

This is weird...

I get sound from the system, from firefox, but from softwares like exaile, vlc, totem, I get nothing...

Any clues?

The way I solved that problem was changing the audio output to Analog Stereo and not Manhattan HDMI Audio Digital Stereo!

Sorry for posting a lot, but this problem is very strange...

Now look what happens: if I reboot and play Exaile it works great, but if I try to play some music in Firefox, nothing happens and then when I go back to Exaile it doesn't work either...

Any suggestions?

I upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 to 10.04 and now I do not have
sound in Firefox (www.youtube.com). However, I do have sound when playing wmv and mp3 files.
I already ran: sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound
and rebooted my Sony Vaio PCG-7V2L

Placing the following in /etc/asound.conf did not work for me.
pcm.pulse { type pulse }
ctl.pulse { type pulse }
pcm.!default { type pulse }
ctl.!default { type pulse }

I do have a work around and that is to use the Epiphany Browser instead of Firefox.

Any ideas,

flashplugin-extrasound is for those using OSS4 (instead of ALSA/pulse), so I don't think you want it installed.

I often promote myself, but not nearly as much as I degrade myself. Nice to see you back as well, uber-helpful info-gathering man. ):P
