Sound issues with Acer Aspire 5050 running Ubuntu


Hi, everyone. I just installed Ubuntu 6.10 (Edgy Eft) on my Acer laptop. So far, I have had no issues other than this one: the speakers don't work. I get sound from the headphone jack just fine, but for some reason the built-in front speakers have no sound output whatsoever. Any suggestions?

For reference, here are my system's specifications:

Acer Aspire 5050-3242
AMD Turion 64 MK36
ATI Radeon Xpress 1100
1GB DDR2

You have to be a bit more informative on the problem you have, in order to let people help you.

Have already read this? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/De...gSoundProblems

Sound on Acer Aspire 5050 in Ubuntu

Plug in an earphone and sound is probably working, though I seem to find only mono. Seems that the Linux driver doesn't know how to turn on the speakers, however.

If anyone finds out the patch for that, I think there'll be a few grateful users.
