Still no permanent solution, but found in a German forum that instead of playing with the alsamixer, a simple

Code: Select all

sudo alsactl init

does the trick, too.

Handy, since I loose the speaker sound every time I unplug my headphones.

Probably works on other models, too.

Maybe you don't need that sudo. Try with just:

Code: Select all

alsactl init
My point is: maybe you could make a keyboard shortcut with this. I still think you could probably find a better solution somewhere, but if you could make a keyboard shortcut, things would get very simple.

Use the up/down and left/right keys to move between the different channels.

Hope this is of help.
Thank you very much Richardj. I did as you told me. It took a little, but I figured how to use alsamixer. I fumbled with it for a while and finally got to the bar which showed something not in use (the bar was blank). I selected it, by using the arrows in the keyboard, increased its volume with the keyboard up arrow and BINGO!!!!!! Now my Asus Netbook has sound.
I am very grateful. I could not have done it without your help.

I wish you a very happy new year.
This 'alsamixer' have helped me too on asus Eee pc seashell series. Thanks a lot.

Take a look at my tutorial for a perfect, permanent repair, without having to go back to Alsamixer on each restart:
