If you run:

alsamixer

are all levels cranked and unmuted?

alex (aarw2) said : #3

without headphone and mic plugged in ALSAmixer reports 100 for speakers and headphones, master and PCM, and zero for Mic, Mic Boos and Beep and AUTO Mut is enabled

Plugging in microphone has no effect on ALSA mixer

Plugging in headphone sets Master to 75 and speaker to 0. All other outputs unchanged

As I said, the system is recognising that a headphone is plugged in just does not let any noise come out!

That MacBook Air with a functioning OS is looking incredibly tempting right now!

Thanks again for your help on all the different questions I have asked.

alex (aarw2) said : #4

This discussion looks relevant but I am not techy enough to decrypt the solutions for my Advent 4211

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1859395&page=4

alex (aarw2) said : #5

I have found a work around. If i go to Sound settings after plugging in the headphones, click hardware and switch profile from Analogue Stereo Duplex, to Analogue input and then back to Analogue Stereo Duplex again the headphones will work until plugged in again. This is clearly a bug. I will file it.

Why is there a flurry of activity on any question and then complete silence. I do not get a resolution to any of the problems. i guess you are volunteers and just overwhelmed by the buggy nature of the six month release cycle.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask alex for more information if necessary.
