I'm a newbie who is enjoying himself setting up my old laptop that had all but died running Windows.
My problem at the moment is that when I plug headphones in I am still getting sound from my laptop speakers as well. I guess it is better than no sound, but defeats the purpose of putting headphones on! All of the other devices I have used turn off the speakers when headphones are plugged in automatically.
I've had a dig round the Sound settings, but the Output section only says "Internal Audio Analog Stereo" but I can't see an option to specify the 3.5mm jack vs. speakers...
I've listed this post as a Newbie post because that sums me up very well! Feel free to direct me to the Hardware forum if that is more appropriate, but I'm still pretty GUI dependent (although very keen to get into the terminal commands if someone is patient enough to help me!).
I'm running Linux Mint 12 with Gnome 3 on a HP-Compaq-nx6120 Laptop, Pentium M 1.60 GHz, 1.5Gb RAM, 40GB HDD (partitioned) Intel (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 03)
Thanks for your time
