HDA Intel Realtek ALC262. Motion eye on sony vaio cure

Postby Davavanstone on Fri Jun 05, 2009 5:38 am

Hello people, just though i'd finally get myself on this forum. I've been using Mint 6 for a while now (originally Ubuntu) and am loving it. There are just a couple of things i couldn't get my head around, one was my motion eye built in cam on a sony VAIO and the other was my sound card (built in microphone).


I have cured my webcam situation here (i'm a newbie so this will hopefully help other newbies)

lsusb result

Bus 003 Device 005: ID 05ca:1839 Ricoh Co., Ltd
The websites mentioned here have support for lots of Ricoh cams, just take note of your kernel version for the correct download. In the readme of the Palmix archive http://www.palmix.org/download/r5u870_k2.6.27.tar.bz2 (kernel version 2.6.27) ignore the sony laptop type just follow the cam type: 05ca:1839 from lsusb My laptop wasn't listed but the cam type was.

First of all i followed this link on Palmix, after all the messing around....................it didn't work for me :lol: but other forums have showed great results, hopefully it will work for you.

After some more scouring around i found this one
http://wiki.mediati.org/b/2008/01/r5u870/
The info in the bold at the bottom or the site did it for me, the only problem i had was that the chmod command would have to be re-entered at every start, try this:
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

and enter
Code: Select all
sudo chmod 777 /dev/video0
at the end of /etc/rc.local. Restart. This will hopefully cure it.

Right now for some help from you guys if possible, no worries if you cant.
My laptop is a Sony VAIO vgn-bx61xn if anyone is familiar with this laptop (range) they have a built in mic http://support.vaio.sony.co.uk/specifications/specifications.asp?site=voe_en_GB_cons&c=0&s=VGN-BX&m=3095 though no matter what i do i cannot get alsa to find the internal mic. I have no trouble with the mic jack, and if i have to i will use an aftermarket mic but it would be great to get this one working.

I have played about with
Code: Select all
alsamixer

and
Code: Select all
alsamixer -V capture -c 0


also edited alsa-base
Code: Select all
sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

and added
Code: Select all
options snd-hda-intel model=vaio


The pulse audio capture is linked to front:0 which is my jack.

Code: Select all
lsmod | grep snd

Gave me this result if this is any help to anyone.

You say you are a newbie.....
You don't act like one....
Not that I think it will help in this case but run lspci and lsusb and post

It's ordinary HDA (ICH8) sound and you have already implemented the standard solution
What you can do is play with model
Sorry for the delay - have been away
