    Jaunty

    Guys I hope you can help me out. I have installed Ubuntu on a dv 7 and everything works but the sound and it works only on the right speaker. The headphone doesn't work. while it is pluged in the right speaker is on. This is the only thing holding me back from going all Ubuntu.

    Nobody's answering you, so let me see ... What's a dv 7? May have a mono audio problem, but I haven't heard a mono problem on my machine, which is also 9.04. How's your speakers and headphone plugged in?

    You have a left and right out of you laptop, so are you plugging your speakers and headphone is separately, or are they both connected somehow?

    OK. I take it that your L/R speakers are integrated into the dv 7 laptop, and you said that only the right speaker is active. And when the headphone is plugged-in to the headphone jack, the headphone doesn't work and the right speaker is still active. IS that a correct summary? Did they work normally with Windows installed?

    Thanks Ermeyers
    Yes the headphon works great with Vista. But when I boot into Buntu the headphones are ignored and I only get sound from the right side.

    There's a command called aumix that is very easy to use. Applications->Sound & Video->aumix to open up a aumix terminal. This shows L/R Balance:
    Code:
    aumix P++++++++O+++++++++++++++++<Vol            ++++++++++++O+++++++++++++
           ++++++++++++++++++++O+++++ Pcm            ++++++++++++O+++++++++++++

    Typically, IN THE OLD DAYS, when you plugged in some headphones, it was a HARDWARE THING that disabled (bypassed) the speakers, while the headphones were plugged in.

    PS: I can't stand Windows.
