    [13.10] Audio Jacks not working or detected. Possibly an hardware detection issue.

    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=4e...dc6b40770ebca5

    Hey guys,

    I am switching over from windows to ubuntu and so far it has gone flawlessly. Just one problem though... the headphone jacks on my laptop do not seem to be detected. I have already read up on various "solutions" but none seem to work. FYI I do not have pulseaudio, I only have whatever it is that was built into ubuntu 13.10. A little bit mor information you may need:

    -Dell Alienware M14x R2
    -I did a lspci in console and noticed this line:

    01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK107 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)

    That is NOT my sound card. My assumption is that it is assuming the HDMI port is my audio output device instead of my headphone jacks. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ubuntu has pulseaudio built in by default...
    Code:
    Pulseaudio:
          Installed - Yes (/usr/bin/pulseaudio)
          Running - Yes
    That is NOT my sound card. My assumption is that it is assuming the HDMI port is my audio output device instead of my headphone jacks.
    No. Your onboard is recognized too and I'm assuming you're getting sound from the speakers?:
    Code:
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
    See: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s.../+bug/1267675/
    {Specifically, see comment 15 there.)
    What would happen if your hard disk died right now?

    ... Well I feel like an idiot now lol, and yes my built in speakers do work. Guess I shouldve looked more closely at my alsa output. Thank you for your link to the solution and I only have one problem with it and that is that when I put in my password for sudo alsactl store it returns:

    Home directory not accessible: Permission denied

    Hopefully somebody knows what this is because a quick google search didnt really help at all.

    This thread is no longer relevant. I reinstalled ubuntu and it only made my problem worse. There is a new thread at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2214037
