I have asked about this in Multimedia and Sound but to no avail.
OK i have of course seen many threads on this but i have tried all of the suggestions, gone through the "comprehensive guide..." and because of what has happened i believe someone may be able to help and therefore help many others.
My PC is connected via HDMI to a TV. If i hook up my headphones to the back of the PC i hear everything. If i take them out i only hear the sound from games (Eternal Lands and Glest).
So, those games must be activating/loading the correct sound driver right? I've looked for any hints of what they are loading in config files etc but can't find anything.
Banshee plays audio, VLC plays audio and Epiphany web browser plays audio.
Firefox and Chromium don't.
Grateful for any help.
Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit.
Radeon 6300 on board graphics.
