When I do "Test Sound" from the sound options and I play the test sound for the right speaker, it plays for the left speaker and vice versa. Also, anything I play sounds crappier. And my front-panel audio jack doesn't work. Is this a normal problem for Ubuntu users?
I am currently trying to setup a soundblaster card (CA106 chipset) to output to 4 channels.
I plugged 4 speakers to analog output (using the jack plugs).
When I am testing the pseakers using the speaker-test utility it works well, but whenever I am trying to play a 4 channel (built by myself) or any multichannels sound (retrieved from the web) with aplay utility I cannot get it to work.
My external USB speakers (logitech) started to fail (vibrating noise), so I got another pair of logitech external speakers (connector is the light green plug - not USB this time). When I plug headphones into both green audio jacks on my machine, I hear perfect sound.
I reinstalled the kubuntu 13.04 and then full-upgrade but now there is no sound in players when play a media file, i use the usb sound card, in the Kmix in Phonon-KDE Control Module in Sound and Video configuration window the correct usb sound card is selected, and there is test sound in the Device preferences -> Audio playback music.
There has been much written on getting the beep sound from Ubuntu releases over the years. Example: fixing the beep
My needs are slightly different in that I do not want to ensure sound card beeps are functioning. Instead, I want PC speaker beeps, the kind produced by the original built-in speaker because I believe they will produce less CPU load.
I had ubuntu 8.10 then i upgraded to the latest version. While installing well upgrading everything went well. Then i had to restart the laptop so the upgrades could take t on my top right handside there is a speaker icon on ubuntu but it slashed out and it says that it does not work at all it's slashed out. There is no sound on my laptop factory speakers.
i have two 2.1 speaker . both of them is connected to back jackpot but sound is only coming from one 2.1 speaker. in windows with the help of realteck audio driver, sound is coming from both speakers ,my doubt is this is there any software like realteck in ubuntu ??
I set up my fathers computer (Ubuntu 11.10) and receiver using Setup_audio_over_HDMI_on_nVidia_GeForce/nForce_controller and the mapping using Pulseaudio worked great when using speaker-test but when we play stereo audio there is sound in front l, front r AND front center but no lfe.
