View Full Version : [ubuntu] mute on boot after jaunty upgrade

After booting, the volume control is always set to mute. I can't see how to set it so it starts un-muted.

I just upgraded to jaunty.

When I boot, I get the bongo drum welcome as the gdm login page comes up. Then when I log in for the first time, the sound mutes, and I don't hear the welcome tune.

I have another partition with a 9.04 clean install, which has no problem.

Same problem here.
I come from Ubuntu 8.10. Changing preferences in Alsamixer doesn't solve it although it recognizes my soundcard :confused:



System: Asus F3SV, Centrino Duo, Ubuntu 9.04, Soundcard ALC660-VD Analog

I'm having this problem also. Tried
alsactl store but getting error "Home directory /home/username not ours" when trying alsactl store.

Have a read of this guide (http://idyllictux.wordpress.com/2009/04/21/ubuntu-904-jaunty-keeping-the-beast-pulseaudio-at-bay/). It fixed all my problems...

I also have the same problem, and I'd like to resolve it without removing Pulseaudio (as the above guide suggests.)

Did anyone manage to do that?

This (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1139622) workaround worked for me.
