View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound on Intel iMac

June 30th, 2010, 04:06 PM
Hi all,

I have a apple iMac 21.5" (Late 2009)
And i'm not completly new to linux/ubuntu/gnu but i couldn't discover why the sound from my internal speakers didn't work.
So i used my headset the whole time till i found the following solution (Wich kay work with other sound problens)

1. Open Terminal (Applications > Asseccoires > Terminal)
2. Type: "alsamixer"
3. You will see some green: "00" wich means:
Open if you see a "mm"
that channel is muted so to unmute it you must hit the: "m"
4. You also see some sounds bars they all must be full in order to get some sound.

I hope this helps, if not ask your question, i will soon make a video because step 3 and 4 are hard to explain :P

You're lucky if the problem is that easy to solve.
