    Re: Sound troubleshooting

    I just clean installed Ubuntu 16.04 but now the external speaker is not recognized, only the internal one is used, even though I've been using the external speaker for a very long time before installing Ubuntu.
    Here are the results of "wget -O && chmod +x ./ && ./
    Please help me, thank you very much!

    Re: Sound troubleshooting

    As far as I can tell, those troubleshooting links pertain to a situation in which sound does not work at all. What about when sound works but has flaws?

    Specifically, I am hearing a lot of front-end clipping in all of my audio applications. That is, whether using vlc or gplayer or a web browser, I get the first half-second or so of the sound cut off. So, an mp3 song will begin a little after the first beat. It seems especially bad in audio books, where almost every sentence starts late.

    I know it's not the files, because they work fine under <gasp!> micro$oft OSs.

    Can someone point me in the direction to address this issue? Do you need specifics of my Ubuntu setup? (16.04) soundcard? what else?

    hello and good day to you fellow ubuntu-ers!

    i have an acer aspire one a0751h netbook/laptop and have recently installed the newest version of ubuntu

    i have a problem when i play back music no matterer what the playback program whether its firefox, music, rhythm box, VLC player etc...

    my issue is that the music is choppy and the second by second speed is way too fast this happens on all of the above programs

    it is driving me nuts - i just want to listen to some music!

    i have tried various solutions with no remedy, iu have tried to install the realtek codecs, the alsa drivers and some others that i found from google

    to recap: TLDR;

    music choppy and sped up
    adcer aspire one a0751h netbook/laptop
    fresh install of ubuntu latest version 16.10 (updated today 5th jan 2017)
    GNOME ALSA mixer PCM slider does nothing to help
    GNOME ALSA mixer states "Realtek ALC272X"

    thankyou in advance

    Thanks for posting the solution. I had not guessed that.

    Don't use this space for a list of your hardware. It only creates false hits in the search engines.

    Re: Sound troubleshooting

    Hi all,

    I recentely decided to install ubuntu on an Acer Aspire Switch 10E SW3-013. I used the image provided with the Acerium project which uses kernel 4.8.4 and that gets most of the neat stuff working that won't in any way if I do an upgrade to a more recent kernel. Unfortunately there remains a soundproblem which boils down to "no sound at all". Pulseaudio seems to be doing okay, but I'm not able to increase the volume for Speaker Channel, Speaker L and Speaker R in Alsamixer. Yes, they are unmuted.
    There's another weird problem when I unmute all options with amixer: the laptop reaches meltdown temperatures while spreading a profound smell of burning plastic.

    It didn't act that weird on Bill Gates' OS that came preinstalled with this hardware, so this seems to be an Ubuntuissue of sorts.
    My output is on

    Any help welcome.
