    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Ubuntu cant play sounds!

    Hi everyone,
    All of a sudden, ubuntu has stopped playing sounds- BUT..I am able to play the sound files i want..its just that no program (games, ubuntu, etc.) is able to play any sounds.
    Everything was working perfectly out-of-the-box, but now i can only play the sound files in the media players.

    aplay returns this:
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ALSA lib confmisc.c:672:(snd_func_card_driver) cannot find card 'Audio'
    ALSA lib conf.c:3493:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such device
    ALSA lib confmisc.c:392:(snd_func_concat) error evaluating strings
    ALSA lib conf.c:3493:(_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_concat returned error: No such device

    kitt - Go through my guide at very beginning of this thread. It should help you get your sound back or at least find the reason as to you not having sound.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Finally resolved my issues with a kernel upgrade (from linux-image-2.6.15-23-386 to linux-image-2.6.15-26-386).

    Additional issues with the earlier kernel I have not posted yet:
    In addition to the "no feedback" symptoms I reported earlier, I recieved the same set of errors kitt reported when I invoked aplay (no "-l" switch)
    Sometimes my sound hardware would be recognised, sometimes not, I could not tell any difference in the situations. As a matter of fact, I have an onboard sound card and a standalone sound card installed, and at times, neither, each of the cards, and both of the cards were recognised. Once again, I could never tell any difference in the system besides the fact that sound was or was not working.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I've got digital output on Intel HD Audio (ALC882D) by turning on the digital out from alsa mixer. As it appears, the codec is able to output both analog & digital at the same time. I was wondering if there is any way to get the line in outputted on the SPDIF. I've asked in a couple other treads, but this one seems to be the most "comprehensive". And another one: is there any chance to get Dolby Digital Live working in Ubuntu?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I think this is something that you would configure using a .asoundrc file. I would not know how since I don't have an HDA card or SPDIF output/speakers.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    hi lord raiden..
    i'm using dapper and sound blaster live! value.
    the sound card is kindda old.. about 5 years my guess.
    i've tried to follow everyother guide that available including yours.
    however it's still bearing no fruit, my sound is still having quirks and hisses for any playback.
    As i'm a very2 new beginner at ubuntu and linux in particular. i'm hoping you could assist me? is this possible. thanks.

    LordRaiden - Let me give you the kudos you deserve for taking the time to help others. Our society, so it seems, has become so "me-me-me" that thinking of others is simply lost in the shuffle of everyday life. Thank you.

    I have an NEC Versa FXi laptop. The sound worked fine with Hoary, but no longer worked when I installed Dapper. I did a clean install, so as to not leave any blivets behind due to an upgrade. Everything worked fine with the exception of sound.

    I went through your excellent guide step by step, and tried everything in it, right down to compling new modules, etc. Alas, still no sound. I have pasted below the outputs of the commands you list. I included "lsmod" to show the modules loaded:

    I still have no sound; alsamixer shows all channels un-muted, but still no joy. If perhaps you glance at this and notice something that jumps out at you, I would be delighted.

    Once again, thanks for the time you give the community.

    Best Regards,

    DCM

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Pizza the Hutt - Do the following -

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.15-25-386
    I don't know what video card you have but hopefully you'll boto back into a graphical shell.

    exgsr
    - go through my guide and post back if you get stuck somewhere.


    dcmalllory -

    2 things -

    1) look in your home directory for a ".asoundrc" file.

    If it exists: delete it, reboot, try playing sound.

    2) If 1 did not help: look in /etc/group

    first look at the file with out editing

    Code:
    cat /etc/group
    VERY CAREFULLY, locate the line that starts with audio, and check that your username appears there.


    If it does not, do

    Code:
    sudo nano /etc/group
    and edit the file. So if you line read
    Code:
    audio:x:29:user1,user2


    it will now read (assuming you want to add the user 'newuser')

    Code:
    audio:x:29:user1,user2,newuser
    save the file (CTRL + O), reboot, then try playing something again.

    If does not work, then I recommend doing the *fresh* install in my guide. After that, I would suggest filing a bug-report (link in my signature) as your next course of action.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    What's about this "sudo modprobe snd-" and tab trick? It isn't working properly... Well, to show all my modules the shell has to be empty and then I can press tab, otherwise it doesn't work ...

    Anyway, I found the right driver thanks to the alsa site, my sound wasn't working at first but that was because I had the "Headphone jack sense" thing on (what is that, anyway?)
