View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound only Briefly Unmutes

March 8th, 2011, 07:00 PM
I am using my headphones in ubuntu 10.10 and in the sound preferences the box next to mute is checked. I can uncheck the box and hear about a half second of the music playing before it automatically mutes again. Once I was able to get about a minute of sound before it automatically muted, and could not be unmuted. I'm using the built in sound from my Asus P5K Pro I believe.

I tried searching through forums and guides but couldn't find anything similar to this problem. My drivers seem to be fine since I can play a minute or so of music. I also tried different headphones in the jack, same problem.

Any help would be appreciated, some of my sound-related output is below.

sudo aplay -l
