    Workaround to get sound on HP mini 1000 (or 1120 NR) with Jaunty

    After a clean install of Jaunty on my HP mini 1120 NR, there was no sound from the speaker. Sound from the headphone jack did work, however.

    This is a known bug (#318942) and is identified in the release notes as a known issue for the HP mini.

    I did manage to find a workaround to use until an official fix is released:

    In Synaptic:

    Add these to your repository sources:

    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/minichoco-team/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/minichoco-team/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

    Click "Reload" and "Mark all Upgrades"

    Also make sure these two packages are installed:

    alsa-source
    module-assistant

    Click Apply to apply changes.


    As root, edit /etc/alsa/alsa-source.conf
    On line 11 you should have:
    ALSA_CARDS="hda-intel"

    In terminal:
    sudo m-a a-i alsa-source

    Reboot and then un-mute headphone & speaker in volume control.

    You should now have sound from both the speaker and headphone jack.

    Caveats:
    - You may need to un-mute the headphone and speaker to hear sounds after each reboot. Click the volume control and un-mute.
    - You may want to mute the PC beep. Click the volume control, click "Preferences" and select the checkbox for PC Beep to make that track visible. Then mute the PC Beep.
    - Haven't tested the mic, so I don't know if that works.

    Hey thanks for the workaround, however I tried it on my HP Mini 1000, but still no sound....not from the front speakers or the headphone jack. I used to have 8.10 on it and while downloading updates, went ahead and updated the distro to 9.10. By the way when I go to System>Preferences>Sound and test for sound, I don't hear anything. Everything is set to ALSA hda-intel everywhere.

    Please confirm you have opened volume control and verified:
    - Speakers are not muted
    - Volume sliders are not set to minimum volume

    If both those check out ok, I would see the comments re: the HP 1035 fix here...

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/netbook-remix/+bug/318942

    It sounds like the fix maybe slightly different depending on which HP mini model you have. I have a HP 1120NR.

    I'm hoping an official fix is released soon, at which point I plan on backing these changes out and using just the official repos. In the meantime, this fix continues to work for me. You can track progress on the bug here...

    Hi, I'm trying to get this working, but I'm getting an error saying:

    W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net jaunty Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY D86553DB9220067F

    This happens after I add the sources and reload. How can I fix this? Thanks!

    To add the key, in Synaptic Settings..Repositories..Authentication see if
    you can import or accept the key for the trusted software source.

    Alternately, you can add the key in terminal:

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 9220067F

    Then launch Synaptic..Reload..Mark All Upgrades

    Post back if this resolves the issue for you, thanks!!

    Okay,

    What is the work around for us HP Mini users that have LPIA processors???
    The HP MINI 1000 doesn't use a PPA processor it has a LPIA?

    I tried everything to try to get sound working! Nothing works so far

    I thought LPIA was a kernel, not a processor.


    That being said, I only know of two versions of Ubuntu that use LPIA: the HP MIE and Aysiu's Ubuntu Remix and both of those versions have sound working out of the box.

    If you are using a regular flavor of Ubuntu or Ubuntu Netbook Remix and this workaround didn't work for you, its probably because of some update you did (I updated and lost my sound).

    You should really check out Aysiu's remix. Personally I haven't tried it, but it looks like it would be great for some people.

    EDIT:
    Once I ran "sudo m-a a-i alsa-source" my sound started working again. Fun!

    LPIA - Low Powered Intel Architecture, as far from what I understand it is achtitecture for the ATOM CPU.

    With that out of the way,

    I tried the Aysiu's remix and it fixes sound BUT BREAKS Bluetooth! Also per his webpage he only supports the HP MINI 1120, hence maybe why the BT doesn't work.
    And YES I did already tried to recomplie the Broadcom LTA drivers and it still doesn't work.

    So right now, there isn't one Distro out that makes the HP MINI 1000 100% functional.

    I'd help fix Bluetooth, except that I have no Bluetooth devices...
