Can't get the sound to work on Ubuntu, I tried everything I know, pls help me!!!
After install Ubuntu I can't listen anything.
I changed the options in "Sound Preferences" (without understanding
what I was doing) and then I realized I had the pc speaker out in
"Volume Control". I changed this but I still can't listen nothing.
I did this
but still nothing.
I also followed this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting?action=show&redirect=DebuggingSoundProblems#If%20All%20Else%20Fails... but only step 1 and 6 (alsamixer)
I have a labtop ASUS X52S and I received this feedback
Ok here what you need to do, when you start your pc or laptop, you need to press the escape button (ESC) it might be the delete button depending on how old is you pc or laptop, and change the KERNEL to the previous version, as it seem that one of the latest kernel i cannot remember if it is the 2.24.18 ? as a bug about the sound. so what i did was to reverse to the previous KERNEL.
So do it and enjoy
PS: please keep in mind that any spcifique setting like your "preload" or "prelink" or the tweak of your profile "preload" will be lost so you will have to do it again.

You can use the windows disk to over-write the ubuntu installation. Just boot from the windows disk, and when it asks where to install, tell it to format the disk and create a partition from the unpartitioned space. Windows will format the disk and you should be good to go. Keep in mind, everything on the disk will be lost.
the Ubuntu ISO that you choose for you pc needs to be selected (x86 for normal 32 bit pc or x64 for 64bit devices ) download the ISO and burn to cd or DVD your choice. when you running XP insert the disk and it gives you a option to install aside xp or to partition the drive to add ubuntu separately or to do a clean install ( wiping everything ) or boot up with it and it will help partition the XP drive to install alongside xp to do a dual boot.. this can be easy or hard id get a tutorial on this. but the clean install is the easiest and best it wipes out the drive and I'm almost sure everything will work when it comes on look up the model laptop and ubuntu 11.04(newest ) all my devices work all the time and the software is awesome as well as free and virus free good luck google installing ubuntu for noobs
A free software operating system based on Linux was created and it was named Ubuntu. It offers all services needed by ISPs, mail servers, DNS servers, FTP servers, MySQL servers, POP3/POP3s/IMAP/IMAPs, Quota, and Firewalls. Red hat, Apache and Ubuntu are Linux software distributors. Ubuntu is widely used because it is free and you don't have to pay any licensing fee. Updates are also available for free and accessible online.
To install Ubuntu Linux software you can use the program "Wubi."
The first thing to do is to download Wubi to your desktop and then run the executable program.
Then choose the drive in your computer where you want your installation to go. Wubi will place a file on your local drive. It will use this drive as a virtual hard drive. Most often the C drive is used for this purpose.
Choose a bigger installation size to allow installation of other programs and storage of data.
Choose your language.
Type in your username and then your password for security reasons and for your installation to proceed. You will use this for logging on to your computer, installing programs and making changes to the system.
Once you click "Install" Wubi will start to download the installation files.
When the installation files have completely been downloaded, you have to reboot. Restart your computer. You'll see on your screen a prompt that asks you to select the operating system that you like-whether you like to boot Ubuntu or Windows. Choose Ubuntu. This will complete the installation of your Ubuntu Linux OS.
Another way of installing the Ubuntu Linux software is by using:
An Ubuntu CD installer
An Internet connection
Everything you need to install Linux comes in one CD that provides a complete working environment. You can get the additional software you will need online for your installation. The available graphical installer makes installation easy and quick. Your computer will have Internet, drawing and graphics applications, and games after Linux has been installed.
Now your computer is ready to work to the max. You'll have it functioning the way you want it and enjoy its features as well. Working on a computer is as much fun as it is functional. You can now browse for information you need, play a variety of games and even listen to your favorite music and watch some videos.
