I am a new user, so please bear with me.

I have installed the newest version of Ubuntu (I am not sure what is the name of this version) and installation went well. I have noticed though that while speakers do work well, my in line jack connection for my older cyber acoustics headset is not working at all. I have tried to find a solution to this problem for the last 2 days as most users would, but to no avail. I have unmuted all sound parameters in my sound preferences and check if the alsa mixer was set properly. I have upgrade and updated everything as per forum's advice.

I have copied below the results from a list of commands that might help forum members help me (as another thread advised). This is mostly Chinese to me, so I will let the pros help me.

Let me know if you need more info.

Made an unfortunate error when typing the model number of the Toshiba netbook. It is actually:

NB250. This was bought in Asia (Thailand).

I realize that I could edit the title as well, so I have made the change everywhere I could.

So sorry for the confusion!

Looked for some threads on headphones and found the solution here: http://playingwithsid.blogspot.com/2010/06/headphone-jack-sense-problem-in-ubuntu.html (http://playingwithsid.blogspot.com/2010/06/headphone-jack-sense-problem-in-ubuntu.html) as reported in a different post http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1470643&highlight=headphone . I just followed the instruction of/in the first link.

Thanks for the help and let's hope this helps others as well.

I am having the same issue, but I think these posts do not help. The issue isn't that the sound from the speakers and the headphone jack work at the same time and you can't turn one off or the other when either is in operation... It's that the head phone jack doesn't work at all when you plug external speakers into the computer there is nothing that works. Only the internal speakers work. PLEASE HELP!

I too have the same problem, and cannot figure out how to get audio out of earphone socket.

Has anyone solved this problem yet for Ubuntu users?
