What kind of graphics card do you have? Posting the output of the 'lspci' command would be very helpful.

I have this exact issue with my Toshiba as well! Sound plays from the machine, but if I plug in headphones or speakers (minijack I think it's called. It's the phallic shaped one?), it keeps playing from the machine as if there is nothing plugged in.


I feel I should also mention that Ubuntu doesn't seem to recognize my Seagate 500G USB external drive (I got it working somehow for a short while), or my webcam (it's the kind that is part of the laptop, right above the screen).

So my wild, completely uneducated guess is that the same problem is affecting all of these - some kind of "mount issue?"

I'm on a Toshiba laptop, and I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu (7.10).

lspci gives me:

Now before trying to help, please, please keep in mind that I have been using Ubuntu for about one day now. I really don't know what anything is or what anything does, so unless you want to be asked "so what is that?," please go very slowly. Thank you.

Great success! Look here for the solve. I made it work through blind guessing and stabs in the dark.
