No Sound No Wireless Ubuntu Studio


I am first time user of Linux. Dont have a great knowledge of code.

My problem is that I have no sound at all, in any application on Ubuntu Studio and also no system sounds.

I also can't get my wireless network to work. My network is configured WPA, tried 'ndiswrapper' thing i found on some other thread but no joy (maybe i did something wrong?)

Priority though is sound. I really want to use ubuntu studio for audio creation!

here is sound output from terminal
aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: VT82xx [HDA VIA VT82xx], device 0: HDA Generic [HDA Generic]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Like i said i have no idea of code but saw some other threads and people wanted this.

Ok, let's try the obvious first: is the sound muted? Open up the voulme control and check. Otherwise you can try running (as root) the command alsaconf.

For wireless the first step is to disable the WPA and try to get it working on an open broadcast. Once that's done you can tackle the encryption part.

hey masonm,

have tried alsa mixer nothing muted, front volume up full too.have tried various settings in sound preferences. have tested pipeline, pop up window saying testing with a blue loading bar that stays at 1/4 of the way, i imagine there is supposed to be a whistle or sound at this point?

as for wireless does anyone know how to install ndiswrapper?

i thought google was my friend, but after hours and hours and hours.....

been searching!

Thanks to you 2 guys for getting back to me on this. didn't know about the google/linux so thanks for that.

I still haven't come across anything that helps me, starting to pull my hair out!

It would seem that a few people have similar problems with the audio and the sound conf of the system but nothing that has helped them has helped me.

I have just reinstalled ubustu in case i had messed up something from terminal, so gonna start fresh (still no sound by the way).

Heres what im running

Ubuntu studio 7.04 "Feisty-fawn" -Release i386

and here is my lspci output from terminal

as for your networking issue install ndiswrapper, add the bcmwl5.inf driver to ndiswrapper and load the module. for WPA encryption you will need wpa_supplicant. I have a howto that might help here on linuxquestions http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...d.php?t=581161

I have a slightly different problem.

My PC has an on-board soundcard (a VIA 8237), plus a separate card (SB Live). It also has a TV card (Brooktree BT878).

I did have sound at first, but it seems to have stopped working. I suspect it is trying to use the on-board card rather than the SB Live - which is the one which has the speakers plugged in.

KinfoCenter shows them listed as:

Audio Devices:
0: VIA 8237 (Duplex)
1: Bt87x Digital
2: CA0106 (Duplex)


How do I force it to use the right one please, i.e. the CA0106?

I have selected that one in Kmix, but it still doesn't have any sound. Also, it doesn't remember that setting when I reboot.

Any ideas please?

is your onboard sound disabled in the bios? sometimes that can conflict.

I followed the HowTo and reinstalled Alsa.

I ran alsaconf and set the sound levels. I also ensured it is not muted.

All looks fine - except no sound

I will check in the Bios next.

Edit - the onboard card is definitely disabled in the Bios.

Not sure what it means but following from the post above, I ran aplay -l to give this:

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: CA0106 [CA0106], device 0: ca0106 [CA0106]
Subdevices: 1/1

card 0: CA0106 [CA0106], device 3: ca0106 [CA0106]

and then lspci to give this:

00:13.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 11)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G70 [GeForce 7800 GS] (rev a2)


Both of them list the correct card - the Creative Labs SB Audigy LS.

Kmix says I am using the correct card. Still no sound though.

If it helps, lsmod | grep snd gives this:

soundcore 8672 1 snd
ac97_bus 3456 1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_page_alloc 11272 2 snd_ca0106,snd_pcm


I see ca0106 which is correct. So why, oh why, is it not working please?

Try the EMU10K1 driver module instead of the one that is loading.
