    Workaround to get sound on HP mini 1000 (or 1120 NR) with Jaunty

    After a clean install of Jaunty on my HP mini 1120 NR, there was no sound from the speaker. Sound from the headphone jack did work, however.

    This is a known bug (#318942) and is identified in the release notes as a known issue for the HP mini.

    I did manage to find a workaround to use until an official fix is released:

    In Synaptic:

    Add these to your repository sources:

    deb jaunty main
    deb-src jaunty main

    Click "Reload" and "Mark all Upgrades"

    Also make sure these two packages are installed:


    Click Apply to apply changes.

    As root, edit /etc/alsa/alsa-source.conf
    On line 11 you should have:

    In terminal:
    sudo m-a a-i alsa-source

    Reboot and then un-mute headphone & speaker in volume control.

    You should now have sound from both the speaker and headphone jack.

    - You may need to un-mute the headphone and speaker to hear sounds after each reboot. Click the volume control and un-mute.
    - You may want to mute the PC beep. Click the volume control, click "Preferences" and select the checkbox for PC Beep to make that track visible. Then mute the PC Beep.
    - Haven't tested the mic, so I don't know if that works.
