View Full Version : [ubuntu] Sound from both headphones and front speakers.

Ok, I know there are a number of threads about this and none have fixed my issue so far, so thought I'd ask.

Since yesterday my laptop front speaks play when I have headphones in. If I want just headphones I can change the sound preferences to analog headphones output, but the volume cannot go over 3 or 4 notches (it can but doesn't affect the volume which is very quiet). I installed alsa mixer and if I deselect "front" my headphones also turn off, so somehow they have got connected. This also means if I mute front or headphones both get muted.

I'm running ubuntu 10.10 and gnome 2.32.0.
