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

January 12th, 2012, 09:27 PM
Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble with ubuntu 10.04 everything is working great, besides when I plug in my headphones it doesn't mute the laptop speakers.. Now this can get annoying at night when I want to listen to music without blasting it throughout the house.
I've already tried the normal stuff like going into terminal and lowering the actual speakers and turning up the headphones, but when I turn down the speakers the headphones turn down also and when i turn up the headphone switch the headphones stay mute. So I'm guessing it's seeing the headphones as part of the speakers and not something separate.
It worked fine in windows before i installed ubuntu.
Any help would be greatly appreciated .

If it matters my laptop is an acer aspire 7736z.
