no tom my problem not solved plz help me i am getting pain for this

Hi,

In order to gather essential troubleshooting information about your sound card, please first follow this procedure:

Step 1: Open Terminal from "Applications->Accessories->
Terminal"

Step 2: Run the following commands (copy/paste each command into the Terminal and then hit <enter>)

wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh

When the alsa-info.sh script asks "Do you want to run this script? [y/n]", press y and then hit <enter> to make sure the script actually runs. Please send us the full terminal output after the script has actually run.

Step 3: Run the following commands (copy/paste each command into the Terminal and then hit <enter>)

cat /proc/asound/cards
asoundconf list
sudo aptitude install gnome-alsamixer asoundconf-gtk
aplay -l
cat /dev/sndstat
lspci -nn
lsmod | grep snd
grep audio /etc/group

Step 4: Please post results (copy/paste terminal output from each command) on this thread

Step 5: Please also report on this thread if you cannot hear sound through the speakers, the headphones or cannot hear sound on both.

Step 6: Please also specify the exact model and make of your PC (if possible) on this thread

Step 7: If you are using a dual boot system (with Windows and Ubuntu installed on separate partitions),
then make sure to set the sound volume in Windows to a high level before booting into Ubuntu

Step 8: Experiment with the audio settings in gnome-alsamixer and asoundconf-gtk until you get sound (hopefully)

=======================================================================================

Please also read the following pages

http://www.ubuntugeek.com/sound-solutions-for-ubuntu-904-jaunty-users.html

http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/audio_intel_hda (check for correct /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf options at bottom of this page)

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting

for some initial suggestions.

You should add the following string to the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file

options snd-hda-intel model=YOUR_MODEL

Valid model names (that replace YOUR_MODEL) depending on the codec chip, can be found at

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/git?p=ubuntu/ubuntu-jaunty.git;a=blob_plain;f=Documentation/sound/alsa/ALSA-Configuration.txt

If you do not know your codec chip name, you can execute the following Terminal command to find out:

cat /proc/asound/card*/codec* | grep Codec

Make sure to set all channels to high volume levels in gnome-alsamixer.

Make sure all the different speakers (including 'Front', 'Master', and 'PCM") are NOT muted and NOT set to low volume levels.

If the output of the command

grep audio /etc/group

looks like this:

audio:x:81

or like this:

audio:x:81:pulse

Then replace that audio line with something like this:

audio:x:81:<your login name>

where <your login name> is the username you use to log into Ubuntu

Kind regards,

Mark

thanks mark i am sending information as you suggested

Please click on the link Mark gave
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/304888
and near the top right-hand corner click on the link
"This bug doesn't affect me (change)"
Mark has already linked this question to the bug so you're automatically subscribed to that bug-report now. It might be worth reading through the comments on that bug report and maybe add your own if you feel there's something the developers would find useful to help fix or find a work-around for the bug.

Other than that all you can really do is wait and keep trying out different work-arounds as they get suggested although it might be possible to get some newer hardware of some sort.

Sorry about this
Good luck and regards from
Tom

Tom (tom6) said : #10

In the screen shot of your alsa mixer i noticed that apart from looking much more sophisticated than mine it somehow seems to lack "Central" and "Surround" which i seem to use quite a bit for my speakers. Mark is really the expert on sound issues (amongst other things) so i suspect that this wont help you but i thought i would add it just in case.

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)

If you need sound soon then i'm sorry to say you'll need to get a sound-card that is compatible with linux. I am sorry pulidilip :(
