Another "no sound" problem .. Mint 16

Postby saromman on Fri Dec 27, 2013 6:24 pm

Hi, I had sound coming out of my laptop yesterday, but I didnt have HDMI output sound. So I tried to fix that my changing etc/default/grub and adding radeon.audio=1. That didnt work. So I added "ppa:ubuntu-audio-dev/alsa-daily" and installed "oem-audio-hda-daily-dkms". That also didn't work and after a bit of messing around my linux wouldnt log in. I got some error saying "Failed to connect to Virtualbox" and "unable to find required component cinnamon screen-saver" and "nemo-autostart". For some reason they got uninstalled and all I had to do was install them again.
So my system works, but I have no sound either over HDMI or the laptop speakers. The only option unders sound settings is "Dummy Output". I looked through the forums and tried many many things. Nothing works.
Heres some info:

Re: Another "no sound" problem .. Mint 16

Postby Aristotelian on Sun Dec 29, 2013 3:14 pm

Just posted the following on another thread. Sounds like the same situation. (UPDATE: I tried reinstalling intel driver through driver manager and lost sounds again. I selected "do not use this device" and sound came back on after reboot.

I had a similar problem also after getting no HDMI audio output. My sound card is Intel 7 Series/C210. Somewhere along the way I think I deleted the audio driver and lost all sound, with Alsa failing to recognize any hardware output devices. The solution was to edit alsa-base.conf in /etc/modprobe.d. Check this file to see if snd-hda-intel is there; if not, it may need to be added.

Do "sudo gedit" and enter password to open text editor as root. Then open the above file and add the following line to the end of the file:

options snd-hda-intel model=basic

After adding this ALSA gives me HDMI as output option and audio is working again. (However, in Driver Manager the device Intel 7 Series/C210 is currently listed as not working).

Hope this helps.

Add me to the list. Recent Mint 16 install and I just found I have no sound. (Not my primary PC otherwise I might have noticed sooner.)

Motherboard has an AMD chipset with built in sound AFAIK

I've run the gnome-alsamixer and made sure the outputs are not muted. And set all volumes to mid range. At times when I mute/unmute various channels I get pops out of the speakers. Better than nothing. I'd really like to get sound working with this setup. There was no issue with Mint 13.

In terminal type:
Code: Select all
pacmd list-sinks


This will give you the sound cards and output options (sinks) available to pulseaudio. Find the number corresponding to the output you want.

Then open the pulseaudio config file: /etc/pulse/default.pa

Let's say there is one soundcard listed as index 0, and analog-stereo is listed as sink 0, HDMI as sink 1. For analog you would want to insert the following lines at the end of the file:

Code: Select all
set-card-profile 0    output:analog-stereo
set-default-sink 1


For HDMI you would put:

Code: Select all
set-card-profile 0 output:hdmi-stereo
set-default-sink 0


Then reboot. This worked for me.

Looks like HDA audio is Index 1. I added the following eo the end of /etc/pulse/default.pa

Code: Select all
set-card-profile 1    output:analog-stereo
set-default-sink 0


No joy. (No sound save the occasional pop.)

Re: Another "no sound" problem .. Mint 16

Postby Aristotelian on Thu Mar 06, 2014 10:12 am

From your pacmd list it looks like 1 is analog-stero. If you want HDMI I think you will need want the following:
Code: Select all
set-card-profile 0    output:hdmi-stereo
set-default-sink 0


If you want output through the analog jack it would be:
Code: Select all
set-card-profile 1  output:analog-stereo
set-default-sink 1


Also when the computer reboots with these options, check your sound settings by clicking the volume icon in the task bar, then look at the configuration tab and see if you can select the correct profile and check the box to make it the default.

Thanks for continuing to work with this. I went with the latter since I just want to drive audio from the stereo headphone jack.

There is no volume icon in the task bar. When I go to Menu -> Preferences -> System Settings -> Sound I find that there are no choices for output. I have seen either Dummy or the analog and HDMI outputs listed for other iterations of this setting.

In System Settings-->Sound, what tabs do you see? Is there a tab for "hardware"?

Did you try the /etc/pulse/default.pa fix?

Tabs are Input, Output, Sound Effects, Applications.

Code: Select all
hbarta@olive ~ $ tail  /etc/pulse/default.pa
#.endif

load-module module-switch-on-port-available

### Make some devices default
#set-default-sink output
#set-default-source input

set-card-profile 1    output:analog-stereo
set-default-sink 1

It looks like pulseaudio is not loading your soundcard. Try changing the set-card-profile value in the config file to 0. So we are trying:
Code: Select all
 
set-card-profile 1    output:analog-stereo
set-default-sink 1


Does that help? If sound is not working automatically when you reboot, go back into System Settings-->Sound. There should be an additional "hardware" tab for you to select the correct soundcard and profile (in this case, analog-stereo) for your output.

No combination of 0/1 for those two settings seemed to make any difference. I found instructions here for reinstalling drivers and config files and did so. I've been thrashing at this and may have messed something up. At least I should be back where I started and still have no sound.

I did some searching on the particular model of the Intel sound chip I have and apparently it is troublesome. (Realtek ALC892) I guess I just got lucky that it worked w/out problem with Mint 13. Unfortunately some S/W I wanted to run did not, hence the upgrade. Maybe an update will magically fix it or I'll try some live CDs to see if any other distros work better with this.

thank you

I cannot rule out tee possibility that the sound H/W built into my motherboard is no longer functioning. Years ago I overclocked this system and it was rock solid (crunching SETI, Rosetta, Folding@Home and so on on both CPU and GPU.) After about a year the sound quit but returned to normal operation when I returned settings to normal. It now seems possible that the sound H/W continued to deteriorate until it no longer worked period. I tried several live CDs including Mint 13 (which worked fine with the sound previously) and none provided sonud. The presence of occasional pops from the speakers no longer convinces me that I have working H/W, only that the speaker is actually connected to something.

At this point I think the wiser choice is to purchase an add in sound card that will either replace malfunctioning H/W or sidestep unsolved configuration problems.

thanks again,
hank

After losing my sound on Mint 16 XFCE and much googling, tinkering, fiddling and fuddling.."sudo alsa force-reload" (youngster on utube) worked for me. Happy now :D
Be interesting to know if it is a fix for others as well.

I thought I had tried this, unsuccessfully, before.
It is working, now, though. I just hope it carries over when I shut down and log back in.

I solved my problem by getting a plug in audio card. ($10US for a used SB Audigy2 ZS) I do not know if I sidestepped a configuration problem or worked around non-functioning H/W, though I suspect the latter. I also went into BIOS settings and disabled the on board audio controller. This leaves my system with the (HDMI) sound card on my GTX 460 and the Audigy. For the hopeful benefit of anyone trying to sort out their sound issues I'll recap what I have presently.

Audio player makes music through the headphone jack in the card. Web browser audio comes up too. (I can play the Coursera videos :D ) The 'Sound' configuration item shows no choices for output. Test function cannot be performed. Apparently sound is not fully configured (see more below) but works good enough. I'm open to fixing any obvious problems.

Hmmm... Seems like a lot of Intel (HDA) modules loaded.

Code: Select all
hbarta@olive ~ $ cat /proc/asound/modules

1 snd_hda_intel

I suppose that the second line above is the reason.

Code: Select all
hbarta@olive ~ $ pacmd list-sinks
No PulseAudio daemon running, or not running as session daemon.

Seems like a hint that something is still not fully operational.

Be interesting to know if it is a fix for others as well.

I thought I had tried this, unsuccessfully, before.
It is working, now, though. I just hope it carries over when I shut down and log back in.
Thanks.


I've been good to go since this..no sound issues at all. glad it worked for you too!

This worked for me. Mint 17

While I wait for an official fix I installed an old "Sound Blaster" card and audio works fine.

The same thing happened when I installed Mint 14 ( never installed 15 or 16 ) and after some time the onboard card started working and I removed the additional card.
