Hi,

I've installed Ubuntu on my Medion laptop (with the wubi installer).
It works nice, but i'm experienceing some sound issues.
The internal speakers work just fine but when I plug in my headphones the sound keeps comming trough the speakers and not the headphones.
I've tried the different options under the soud settings but no matter which ones I choose, I either have sound only from my speakers or no sound at all.
I've also instaled 'ALSA' which gives me more options, but the results remain the same.

As far as hardware is concerned, The 'lshw' command tells me:

*-multimedia
description: Audio device
product: N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller
vendor: Intel Corporation
physical id: 1b
bus info: pci@0000:00:1b.0
version: 02
width: 64 bits
clock: 33MHz
capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list
configuration: driver=HDA Intel latency=0
resources: irq:45 memory:d8440000-d8443fff
Windows lists my sound card as "Realtek High Definition Audio"

I've downloaded the "realtek-linux-audiopack-5.16" drivers from http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsCheck.aspx?langid=1&pfid=24&level=4&conn=3&downtypeid=3 but I can't figure out how to install these (running the "install" file creates some extra files and folders, but thats it).

I'm wondering if my sound card is even supported and, if it is, how to get it working.

Any ideas?

Have you selected your headphones in sound preferences, on the hardware and output tab?

Use the alsa-info-script to provide detailed information.
Run this command in a terminal:

wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
Choose the upload option and provide a link for the output.
[Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"]

On the output tab I have:
Analog Speakers: sound come from the speakers
Analog Output: same as above but very silent
Analog Headphones: no sound

In hardware I have selected the default Analog Stereo Duplex
The other options are:
Analog Stereo Input
Digital Stereo Duplex ( IEC958 )
Digital Stereo ( IEC958 ) Output + Analog Stereo Input
Analog Stereo Output

But nothing works.

Try this using a Terminal="Applications->Accessories->Terminal"

echo "options snd-hda-intel model=medion" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Reboot

echo "options snd-hda-intel model=medion" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Reboot

I've done so, the line got written to the configuration file but sound still doesn't work correctly.
Do I need to change some options as well?

Depends. Check your settings in 'Sound Preferences' and alsamixer.

Hmm, alsamixer shows an unmuted headphone channel but it has no volumebar...
here is a screenshot
