Title: Sound Problems
Post by: aaditya on 28. August 2013, 07:25:04
Hello,
Initially when I installed Manjaro, sometimes the sound seems to work, sometimes it didnt, while it was fine on other distros; till I finally found out what was happening.

Here's how it goes-
Note-I am using the default/standard configuration (pnmixer +alsa +pulseaudio +pavucontrol)

The problem is that it doesnt synchronize well, I will explain what I mean with the help of screenshots.

(left click on your volume icon in the tray -> Volume Control to check what I type)

1.)When I muted my sound via the Fn+F8 key, or by left clicking on the volume icon - > mute,
 the mute icon in the output devices of volume control would be greyed out both in the system tray and the pavucontrol and in notification also. - Pic No 1

2.) But when I unmute it either with the Fn key or by clicking on the icon -> Unmute,
everywhere in the notifications I see that it is unmuted, but in the volume control (pavucontrol) ,
it is Still Muted! - pic no 2

So there you have it! Thats what I mean that its not synchronizing correctly.

This problem could also be the reason, for example, when you plug in your headphones, and the system is showing that the sound is on, whereas In Fact It would be Off in the volume control( pavucontrol) for your headphones output.

In that case try to do
is to click the greyed out mute icon in the volume control to re-anable your sound. - pic no 3

A simple solution if it works, no uninstalling/ reinstalling, or messing with configuration files.  :)

I had the problem few days ago, where my headphone weren't getting any sound. I posted a thread here. Turned out, completely shutting down and powering the laptop back up fixed the problem.

Reboot doesn't work though

Post by: aaditya on 29. November 2013, 14:57:00
Oh, it puzzled me too for a few days till I found out what was happening :)
In the end I just removed pulseaudio in favour of simple ALSA which is working till date on my system ;)
Title: Re: Sound Problems!
Post by: Richard on 29. November 2013, 15:03:12
I'm going to try that, to see if it will get rid of the low hum. :(

Great! Definite improvement.

Seems something in linux312 brought out the worst in pulseaudio.
Even with linux310 there was a conflict but not too noticeable if the sound was low.

Have you found a solution to your problem? This also affects me and at least two other users (http://forum.manjaro.org/index.php?topic=9955.0).

You sir, really deserve a better view on Search Engines ! I looked up for 1 hour before I found your Wiki page and got rid of my problem. Thank you so much.


I had a bug with Manjaro on my Asus Laptop (EeePC), using XFCE (xfce4) : Pulse (pulseaudio) was confusing my speakers with my headphones. That was really annoying, because I always had to open alsamixer, then change the default card for my speakers (HDA Intel), and then raise and increase the headphone's volume in order to get the speakers to work.

Here is the link to the solution : http://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Volume_Stuck_on_Mute_%28XFCE_Desktop%29 (http://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Volume_Stuck_on_Mute_%28XFCE_Desktop%29)

After that, I had to open xfce4-mixer and enable Auto-Mute Mode (if not, both headphones and speakers were working all the time).
I also had to edit ~/.config/vlc/vlcrc and change the line
Code: [Select]
#alsa-audio-device="default" byt
Code: [Select]
alsa-audio-device=hw:0,0


Some keywords that could have helped my find faster^^ : alsa, arch, pulse-audio, headphones, speakers, manjaro, bug, problem, no sound, auto-mute, 0.8.8

I'm having a completely different problem with pulse causing the system to freeze. Was searching for solutions - going to just remove it later tonight and see if that works.

Post by: aaditya on 08. May 2014, 07:46:53
To add more info to this thread, I would like to post about configuring the sound when using Alsa.

To know about and change the sound options (volume, mute/unmute, etc), one can use the command
Code: [Select]
alsamixer in a terminal.

(http://i.imgur.com/v8o9QsDl.png)

After changing the required settings, one can use the command
Code: [Select]
alsactl storeto save the settings for persistence across reboots.

Note-
For advanced configuration / troubleshooting, one can refer to the Arch Wiki page which has lots of information: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Advanced_Linux_Sound_Architecture

Another reference is the Gentoo wiki: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/ALSA

Hi guys!
I've always had a dislike for the way pulse and alsa work (or not) together. Finally I have completely uninstalled pulse and am just using alsa with alsamixer and alsaequal for eq, controlled by qas because it looks nicer! It sounds much better, and is much more simple with just one volume control.
I am quite happy, but there is one problem: in certain cases alsa will only play the sound from one application at a time, so sometimes there is no alert or notification sound. Usually it is ok with panel notifications but mozilla firefox and thunderbird will not play nicely at all. Does anyone have any ideas or information about this?
This is something I only did the other day, so I am still experimenting. I do not want to go back to using pulse though. It seems like a poor idea. I am a sound engineer, so I have experience with professional sound equipment, but computer sound is not something I am yet familiar with. I hope to be able to come up with a good working solution.  :)

I've been using Manjaro for quite some time now, and I think my sound issue started after one of the system updates.

Basically, every time I reboot (or shutdown, turn on, doesn't matter), there's no sound, although volume icon indicates that it's not muted. I can also pull volum handle up or down with no effect whatsoever. I can press fn+f8 to mute and unmute - still no audio (icon responds by turning grey).

The only solution that works is when I plug in the headphones (audio is present in the headphones all the time), plug them out, and suddenly the sound is on again. Any thoughts?
Using XFCE desktop with pulseaudio and alsa, if that helps

I have no  sound either. Not on any distribution like ubuntu, debian. I do have sound on windows.
I am trying manjaro wich i see is a very nice distribution but no sound. Could it be my hda-intel PCH on my medion akoya.
I have no idea. Maybe someone knows a solution. No sound on htlm5 on youtube also. Or should this be another topic

@erik Would help if you add some hardware info on your Profile.. I am not an expert on sound issues...But anyhow for what its worth.. The first of many things that I install on Manjaro is "pavucontrol "  A GTK volume control for PulseAudio  fixes sound immediately..  Find out what sound card you are using 
Code: [Select]
aplay -l and go into config and disable everything but your main sound card.. Works for me Hope this helps Kat  ;)

Yes Verändert2.0 is correct should work ootb.. I have the same onboard audio and works fine.. but I am not using my onboard audio at the moment!  are your cable connections correct?

set it like this BUT in your case you would disable others and enable Intel HDA

something like this I see that I have got it right. Thanks for the tip.

Ik wil put a printscreen now from the 2 volume controls.
It shows different output. The 2 on the left are mine

It started with having sound for a few seconds or a few minutes. After that the sound was gone on everything. Also on musicplayers (mp3, htlm5 everything on every linux). Now it is completely gone.

I've been trying to troubleshoot this for a few days now. You can find my progress here: https://teksyndicate.com/forum/linux/speakers-laptop-not-working-headphones-are/184425 (https://teksyndicate.com/forum/linux/speakers-laptop-not-working-headphones-are/184425).

It seems that I have the same audio setup with my laptop as the poster/previous user to post specs. Maybe its an issue with the hardware but I think I've narrowed it to a problem with ALSA since I've had the issue with both the XFCE and the GNOME/PulseAudio implementations. If anyone finds anything interesting amongst my ramblings that help to figure this out it would be very helpful.

Post by: kmcclry1 on 29. August 2014, 18:28:44
To add more detail to my situation for those who may be able to help with this problem.

I've now tried Antergos and Fedora Live environments, and also booting into my Windows partition (stupid Matlab for school...) and I've had issues in all of them. This warrants some more information about my previous operating systems and how they interacted.

Before dual-booting Manjaro I was using Fedora 20 and Windows. Audio worked just fine at the time. I had learned quite a bit while using Fedora and felt a little more confident to move to a system based on Arch. I then install Manjaro and the issues began. Audio becomes as described in my post that I link to in my last post here. I worked through trying different things for PulseAudio and Gnome, I then worked through switching to XFCE and removing Pulse all together in order to see if that was the problem (it wasn't). I then tried messing with ALSA (which to be fair I probably haven't exhausted the possibilities) but I'm finding that alsamixer is saying sound is being output to correct interfaces, those interfaces aren't muted, etc. I know it is in fact doing that because audio will play for a few minutes through the speakers and then all of a sudden turn off (headphones still work when plugged in). I then went to a friend's house last night to LAN and I booted up Windows for the first time in a while. I tried my Windows partition and here's where I and @erik are definitely having the same problem with the same hardware. My Windows partition will begin playing a video for instance, it will play for a little bit and then mute like within linux, but this time if I move to another buffered area of the video, it will reset and play audio for another minute or so. I had never had these issues within Windows before with Fedora, so I figured I'd try a live environment of Antergos, to see if it was a Manjaro thing (Arch base being equal), and Fedora, to see if that still worked (spoiler, it didn't).

So here we are, a week ago I had audio playing through my speakers, installed Manjaro and have had issues since. I don't know if there is something that Manjaro updated micro-code on the processor, or made some persistent change to the audio, but something happened that has affected audio across distributions and completely different OSes.

Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: kmcclry1 on 30. August 2014, 00:12:24
I was so close to saying that you just solved my issues, and then I waited a couple minutes...

That seemed to help. I got audio out of my speakers for 2.5 minutes instead of seconds, but it still ended up muting (or whatever the hell its doing). It may have happened when I clicked on a new tab in firefox. (I'm going to try to recreate it and then add an edit to this post when I get through that again.)

So that's the right track? What more could I do? One thing to ask is do I need to drop into root to make changes like that persistent across reboots? I know that some things involving ALSA configs require root to make persistent changes, would this be one of them?
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: schpankme on 30. August 2014, 00:31:20
You can try sudo.

You may need to add the Sound Configuration File
Code: [Select]
sudo mousepad /etc/asound.conf
Cut & Paste into /etc/asound.conf
Code: [Select]
pcm.pulse {
   type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {
   type pulse
}
pcm.!default {
   type pulse
}
ctl.!default {
   type pulse
}

reboot


1) You may need to re-install "jack"
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -S jack
2) IF - resetting PulseAudio corrects the issue temporarliy, you 'could' remove PulseAudio and use only Alsa.
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -rf /tmp/pulse* ~/.pulse* ~/.config/pulse
pulseaudio -k
pulseaudio --start

3) Remove PulseAudio
Code: [Select]
sudo pacman -R pavucontrol pulseaudio pulseaudio-alsa
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: kmcclry1 on 30. August 2014, 03:42:58
I followed the "no sound" bit that you posted and then killed pulseaudio and removed it so that I would hopefully be starting with a fresh alsa interface without pulse stuff. I also reinstalled jack.

No dice. I still have it cutting out audio. I'm going to reboot and check alsamixer before I start another audio test but this is getting really weird. I can't understand what kind of problem this is. Unless there is a conf file somewhere that has something messed up that's causing this. The part that is really throwing me off is that this happens if I start up the computer and immediately go to say a video on youtube, I get about 20 seconds of audio and then is stops. I'll check the dmesg's as well to see if something is starting or stopping at that time after boot.
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: schpankme on 30. August 2014, 03:53:38
You may want to change to the Testing Repo's to see if that eliminates the problem, there may be a bad file some-where. You can test this my using the LiveISO and check for sound.

Code: [Select]
sudo mousepad /etc/pacman-mirrors.conf     Branch=testing

Code: [Select]
sudo pacman-mirrors -g -b testing
sudo pacman -Syuu
yaourt -Syuua
reboot
...

suggestion:
We can always completely remove the sound system (alsa and jack) and start over as well.
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: kmcclry1 on 30. August 2014, 04:23:46
I don't have a USB drive available that would have enough space to take all the updates necessary when doing a pacman -Syuu so I moved my install to testing, still have the audio issues. It didn't look like there were many packages that changed from stable to testing (maybe 10) and none of them had anything to do with audio.

One thing to note, without pulseaudio alsamixer labels my soundcard as "Intel CougarPoint HDMI." My headphones still work when I unmute them with the mixer but that naming almost makes me think it isn't recognizing outputs correctly.

Since ALSA is compiled in the kernel how would you remove it and reinstall it?
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: schpankme on 30. August 2014, 04:36:07
I meant that you can use the LiveISO to test to see if Sound works?

As for removing Alsa, that would be everything shown installed (alsa*) within your Package Handler (pamac/octopi).
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: kmcclry1 on 30. August 2014, 22:09:20
Ah, well, no LiveISO I've tried has worked. I've tried two different versions of Manjaro (Xfce and Gnome), Antergos (to see if it was a Manjaro and not arch problem), Fedora (to see if my previous distribution would work), and Ubuntu 14.04 (to see if older software would work and maybe it was a bleeding edge problem). The stranger part of this is that my Windows install has pretty much the same issue except that sound comes back if I move a youtube player around to another buffered area of the video, instead of being permanently muted. That's why I was wondering if this was somehow a hardware issue and not a config file issue earlier, its persistent across distributions and OSes. Could Grub be causing it? That's the only thing I can think of that ultimately effects both OSes.

I'll try removing all alsa and jack files and then rebooting and installing them. I'll report back to see if that changes anything.

Thanks for all your help btw, its nice that there is someone else trying to help because this was driving me crazy when I was trying to figure it out by myself.

EDIT:
Also, I forgot to mention that when I try to remove the state-daemon.conf part it says that there isn't a file of that type. How important is that file and should I have it in the first place?
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: schpankme on 30. August 2014, 22:18:08
If this issue happens with Multiple OS's, then it's probably a Hardware Issue; cable, port or card.
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: kmcclry1 on 30. August 2014, 22:26:30
See that's what I thought it might be, but its odd that it happened for both I and a previous poster in this thread. We have the same soundcard and we both have this issue. I think that's a little too coincidental to not be something that we have in common. *shrug* I guess I'll just deal with it or get another laptop at some point.
Title: Re: Sound Problems
Post by: kmcclry1 on 12. September 2014, 06:03:14
Update:
Not sure what happened, but my sound is working now. I reinstalled a little while back and had the same issues. I then updated to 316 again and had to save my install because grub screwed up. I chrooted in and fixed the laptop and apparently the sound. I have no idea if grub was screwing something up, or what the deal was, but either way sound is working now.

I wish I could be more helpful for whoever may come here looking for a solution, but I literally have no idea what happened...

Usually it is ok with panel notifications but mozilla firefox and thunderbird will not play nicely at all. Does anyone have any ideas or information about this?

Do you still have this problem?  If so, you might need to tell the kernel to load the snd-aloop module at boot:

Code: [Select]
sudo nano /etc/modules-load.d/modules.conf
So that your modules.conf looks like this:

Code: [Select]
# List of modules to load at boot
snd-aloop

Sound from all of your applications should now be routed to your sound mixer after doing that. If not, you will have to check your sound preferences and see if there and option to create a bridge between ALSA and the snd-aloop daemon, then enable it.  I'm not familiar with QasMixer but maybe it has an option to do this.

Hope this helps!  Somebody, at least.

I have already created a topic at the xfce section because I didn't  notice that this discussion was up before, but probably this was the right topic I should have looked at in the first place but...thing is I have no sound output on HDMI, on other distros simply playing this sound check:
Code: [Select]
speaker-test -c 2 -r 48000 -D hw:0,3used to fix the issue. Right now  tho if I do that I can hear the sound test through the TV so both the hardware and the sowftware are definitely fine, but still when I'm trying to output media it doesn't work and the sound keeps playing through netbook speakers. Any workaround?
Update: all good. The "issue" was that I didn't change the per app setongs.
