View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot get audio through Auxiliary Cable

June 28th, 2009, 09:35 PM
Hey everyone,

I'm running Ubuntu 9.04 on a Dell XPS 1530, and I have a strange problem. When I connect headphones to the headphone jacks on the front of the laptop (there are two), I am able to hear sound without any problem. However, when I plug in an auxiliary cable and connect the other end to external speakers, I get no sound whatsoever. At this point I don't know if it is a hardware issue or if it is a Linux issue. I'm just wondering if anyone has seen or heard of this happening before. Thanks!
