Gstreamer porblem mabye (No sound)

Postby acorn22 on Sun Aug 26, 2007 3:05 pm

I have no sound on my Cassandra installation. I used to have it in Bianca so I don't know what the problem is. When I right click on my volume icon it gives me an error message:
Code: Select all
No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found.

Here is my lspci -v

lowell@minty:~$


Is it because of the <permission denied> thing?

Also when I try to play a video in MPlayer it says the device -vo is not found.

Hi lowell
lspci -v (and lsusb -v) needs to be run as root - don't know why but that's the way it is (possbily you might "shake up" your system)
I instantly recognized your problem and possibly the solution is here

Well after following several links after the ones you posted, I discovered that my Alsa drivers are ok.

Which means it must be gstreamer, right?

Hi
Doing a simple `gst-register-0.X` as root. Logging out and logging back in resolved this issue.
It registers all the GStreamer plug-ins and creates a listing of their properties so that the plugin is loaded on startup of GStreamer based applications.
Where x is the version of your gstreamer (look in Synaptic)

May help?

yeah I did.

Also I put in several live cd's and they all have the same problem. I reset my BIOS back to default settings but mabye sound is disabled by default?

How can the sound card show up in lspci and yet not work?

Posslbly your soundcard is dead?



Have you tried the old Bianca live CD?, you say it used to work in Bianca.

Have you gone into Bios and tried "enable onboard sound" also "disable onboard sound"

Lowell is that your old laptop?
Try enabling the modem if that's been disabled (and if it exists :)) For quite a few laptops there are some hardware dependencies between modem and sound

No, it's a desktop.

Bianca Live cd has no sound

I'll look in the bios again for a setting.

Not sure if it has a modem, I'll try that driver.

Also, husse, the hard drive with the installation I skyped you guys with is still fully un-touched since my dad took it away a couple of months ago. If I can get that back and test it then I will know if it's Linux or bios/hardware because obviously sound worked on it.
