    Re: Interpid Sound Solutions

    From the bug report it looks like your AC'97 sound chip is beong properly detected so it should work.

    It looks like there are a lot of switches available in the sound mixer so you should check and make sure the master and pcm and other switches are on. Use the gnome-alsamixer, it is easier to use and should show all the options. You should also check that System/Preferences/Sound is set to pulseaudio and in the pulseaudio volume control/output devices that the AC'97 is selected as the default device (right click on it.)

    What applications are you trying to use?

    Re: Interpid Sound Solutions

    All the switches are on in alsamixer.

    PulseAudio seems to be set up fine too, as per the guide.

    I have tried to play mp3's in both vlc and rhythmbox. Rhythmbox has issues though and frequently freezes and I don't think it's actually playing it anyway. It all seems to work fine in vlc though but no sound.

    Re: Interpid Sound Solutions

    Hi

    I am running Kubuntu Ibex. and having trouble with flash audio in firefox. if i play flash on firefox then there is no audio available to amarok, or any other application, unless I close firefox and restart the other app. sometimes i need to rebbot before being able to play anything.

    All this is so frustrating.

    My question is - can I use this guide here to solve this issue...? it seems to be written for Ubuntu, but i would like to try it on Kubuntu.
    Distros/DEs - playing around with Arch-Kdemod,
    Slackware 12.2, Gentoo-e17, Arch-e17 and of course, Ubuntu 8.10...! But still JUST A BEGINNER please..!

    Yes, it works fine for me with KDE4 on Intrepid. I installed KDE over gnome so I am not sure if the pulseaudio packages are included in kubuntu but it is easy enough to get them from the repos.

    Hi:

    When I went to Applications/Sound and Video and select Pulse Audio Device Chooser. T and choose Volume Control the sliders were up and the device were muted.

    I could not unmute them.

    What should I do?

    Are they muted in the volume control in your top panel or in the gnome-alsa mixer?

    You need to click on the little speaker to mute and un-mute and when muted there is a box around the speaker and the other thing is greyed out. The little red x is always there.

    Markbuntu:

    When I use gnome alsa mixer, they are not muted.

    However, (Appendix A, item 2) say: Open the "PulseAudio Device Chooser" from Applications/Sound & Video. Click on the applet icon, and click "Volume Control...". Click on the "Playback" tab.

    When I do that the speakers are muted.

    What should I do next?

    THanks,

    Hi Mark:

    When I click on those muted speakers they do not "unmute."

    Re: Interpid Sound Solutions

    A complete noob here. Two days ago, I upgraded from Hardy Heron to Intrepid Ibex and after rebooting the sound icon showed a red X over it and since then there is no sound. When I click on it, I get the following message:

    Code:
    The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.
    
    You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu.
    And also this one:

    Code:
    No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found.
    When I enter aplay -l on the terminal I get:

    Code:
    aplay: device_list:215: no soundcards found...
    Entering lspci -v gives me:

    For almost three days, I've been doing nothing except looking for a solution to my problem. I followed ever possible lead and wasted hours and hours but still no sound on this old computer. This is so frustrating! I faced the same situation when I upgraded from Ubuntu 7.10 to Ubuntu 8.04. Surfing the net I found something that worked out well but I just can't remember what I did.

    Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

    Markbuntu:

    Lets see if you could help me out...

    I'm not going to randomly install any of the things you have in your Thread .. since I have all my Sounds Working Perfectly(Natural Ubuntu sounds, VLC, MoviePlayer, RhythmBox, Flash: Youtube, Myspace & all websites), from simply installing fresh Ubuntu 8.10 ... ofcourse and installing any applications from *Add/Remove.. They all work 100%

    The only issue Application, that I do have perfect Picture, but NO SOUND is: TVtime

    Any specific thing you can think off that I will need to execute?

    I have a thread up of my issue: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1029078
    Some have tried to help, but still no success.
