View Full Version : [SOLVED] MacBook 2.1 sound issues

November 15th, 2010, 02:38 AM
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my macbook after finally getting fed up with macintosh. Everything works great except for the sound, the quality is bad and the headphone jack doesn't work. I'm kinda new to Linux in general, so any help is great.

Solved by updating Alsa and poking around in the Alsamixer.

To record you either need to plug your UN-AMPED guitar directly to the audio in, connect a mic to the audio in and use the mic to pick up the amp, or get a digital audio interface. What you did was like trying to run a lightning bolt through a wall outlet in your house!

I should probably clarify, the audio output didn't work and the output from the internal speakers' quality was poor. I haven't actually tried to use the audio input yet.
