    Question Ubuntu 11.10 no sound

    Hi all,

    I've got 11.10 but there is no sound at all. It's really strange I even tried with HDMI, but again - there is no sound. Any idea, how to fix it if it's possible of course?
    I assume it's something related to 11.10 because on 11.04 I had no problems like this. Sound card works well.

    Thanks in advance,
    S.

    I had no sound in gnome shell even though the sound was turned all the way up. I logged into Unity and it was all the way down. I turned it up and logged back into shell and my sound was back.

    Hm, It is strange because I'm using Unity not Gnome,but can try switch to Gnome and check sound again. Any idea how to switch?

    To get Gnome you have to install gnome shell. Then you can log out and have the option of logging in to Unity or Gnome.

    I also have the no sound problem in Unity 11.10. So far my searches haven't come up with a solution.

    Anybody?

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no sound

    My problem was fixed by :

    Installing/Compiling the latest ALSA drivers for the new Kernel 3.0.0.12 by :
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Audio/UpgradingAlsa/DKMS

    removed & reinstalled pulseaudio things. (reinstall indicator-sound also)

    Not working again, but I noticed that while aplay -l does not work sudo aplay -l works, so then I did this:
    chmod -R a+rwX /dev/snd
    Things worked for the headphones at least. Use alsamixer for tuning other things.

    Try to install pavucontrol and check if don't have your output muted.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 no sound

    hey guys, im having the same problem and its really driving me bonkers, when I first installed it, it worked fine, but now that I am transferring files from my original windows 7 operating system over to my Unbuntu 11.10, my sound stopped working. I am not as smart as a lot of these computer smart people are, but I really would like some help on trying to figure out what I need to do to get my sound working!!!! Thank you for reading my post, and hopefully someone will get back to me on this quickly!

    I'm having a similar problem, only the sound seems to work on alernate boots. Installed the new ALSA drivers as mentioned above, still no joy. Bizarre.

    What kind of files are you transferring? What verion # are you running I am 0n 11.10 and have no problem I did but found out that te problem was actually in my qjack audio setup, my setup wasn't properly pointing to my alsa drivers. I personally try to keep most of my stuff from windows such as music or files that can be accessed on and what isn't compap a separated usb memory card or external hard drive.

    , when I first installed it, it worked fine, but now that I am transferring files from my original windows 7 operating system over to my Unbuntu 11.10, my sound stopped working.

    This makes me wonder if something in these files is causing this problem or what. I would make sure that you have your sound set up correctly in you control panel and then in any other programs you rely on to emulate it.

    this makes me wonder if something
