i seem to remember a dedicated 64 bit version, as i believe the one you get this method may be 32 bit with a 64 bit wrapper. while on on the subject, i know 4 a fact there is a 64 bit linux flash player. i will post the link, when i add an applications thread.

KEEP READING NOW 😀

in this next section i use terminal

sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart

this next 2 lines let the sound work, which in my opinion shows a conflict with pulse and alsa

rm -rf ~/.pulse

killall pulseaudio

so i

sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio

sudo apt-get autoremove

sudo apt-get install libesd-alsa0 gnome-alsamixer

sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-tools alsa-tools-gui alsa-utils alsa-oss linux-sound-base

sudo apt-get update

sudo reboot

this next comand is a favorite of mine for stuborn files

CAUTION,CAUTION, when you use this command, you have sudo priviledges, be CAUTIOUS when deleting files, double check to see that a non pulse file is in not your search results!!!! if so drag and select around them. read on.....

sudo nautilus

Now use this virtual sudo desktop, enter pulse in the search in the SAME window (click the magnifying glass top right), make sure to add hiden files, and search the file system so that you get everything. When you use this method search is slowed down, be patient, wait. Now you have all the pulse files, and sudo privilege, look through the search results and make sure some misc data dint get mixed in (non pulse related files) , if its all good , drag and select all remaining pulse files, while selected, hit shift+del, hit enter when it asks to permanently delete. Close the window. Terminal should pop up.
In that terminal type

sudo reboot

I had to use this method, because for some reason, 9.10 karmic bonds itself to a lot of programs, removing asociated programs. For example pulse and alsa both take almost half the main operating sytem with it, when trying to remove them in terminal, or synaptics . Including ubuntu-desktop, and a good list of others. With the sudo nautilus search and destroy method, its downright surgical 😀

Now, using gnome-mixer Application>>>sound&video>>gnome mixer
Unmute and control every aspect of your sound, including multi soundcard issues!!

Note , many posts that i read sugested to install alsamixer, dint work for me, and i dont like the gui. this is the only method that works flawless for my setup. I have had ati catalyst working perfectly on a couple previous installs. Minus Emerald, which i used gnome-color chooser and gnome themes. Ill get the exact programs and list them in another thread for applications.

i will refine this and add new threads until i have a complete tut for this model laptop. been at this for a couple days straight, time for beer.
in the mean time enjoy!!!!

  1. it also removes gimp, which can easily be reinstalled via , in the terminal

    sudo aptitude gimp

    id sure like to know why the programs remove associated programs when trying to remove a certain other program.

  2. Hahaha! …and I would have to read this novel for sound problems????? It seems a tip for coming back to micorsoft!!! 😉
    Thanks

  3. “sound problem in karmic” is quite too generic. You should state clearly what kind of problem you had and what else you tried before…
    Moreover, you removed pulseaudio, which is not the first thing one should suggest to “fix audio problems”. And removing files by hand is very dangerous: some of those files might be owned by completely unrelated packages (pm-utils comes to my mind) so that in case you want to revert the changes / upgrade to lucid, everything will probably break and the only solution will be reinstalling everything…

  4. Those packages you are seeing such as Ubuntu-desktop and such are meta packages. They don’t actually have any programs in them, they are just dependencies that hold together packages of packages. IE if you install “ubuntu-desktop”, you’re just invoking all its dependencies and installing a bundle of packages.

  5. @ Gab

    Yes, this sounds so much better:

    Uhoh, I got problem x, let’s look online.
    O hey, these nice people made a program to solve my problem.
    hmmm, why do I suddenly have a ton of popups and is my entire CPU busy working?

  6. almost willing to bet fix all sound issues in karmic, unless hardware completely doesnt support it, like SIS graphics. also fixes freezing issues.

    could reverse the process to keep pulse if you wanted

    software conflict, this should fix it

    since this is a microsoft, i mean software conflict problem, you should be able to use this method on all karmic install no matter what your hardware is. if not, i would suggest backing up your info and starting from the top. again tho, you shouldnt have to. any pakages you already have shouldnt affect the script either, or your install. restores all sound including system sounds. also stops freezing issues that happened when adjusting audio settings.

    THIS METHOD CLEARS OUT PULSE COMPLETELY BUT DOES FIX THE SOUND. I TESTED THE SCRIPT ON A FRESH INSTALL EVERYTHING WORKS PERFECT AFTER SUDO NAUTILUS. KEEP READING

  7. almost forgot, it also removes gimp for some reson,
    after you reboot

    sudo aptitude install gimp

    will reinstall, and more than the standard features it seems. unless gimp got a revamp

  8. keep in mind, if you can read then you already know this, but since it was posted ill say it again.

    i did this in the following process

    fresh install

    update

    then followed my own tut.

    true, programs that use pulse will not work, because we remove it

  9. You need to say what kind of sound problems you’re having. Someone who has accidentally muted their output is not going to want to do this.
    I didn’t like Pulse as first, but especially in 9.10 , it works great for me.
    Heh heh heh, fix all sound problems, I wonder what kind of sound problems it will introduce from straight out ripping the preferred sound server out of the install.

    It sounds like you’re having issues with multiple sound cards, and selecting which is the correct one. If so, I would absolutely not recommend what you did. I would recommend installing padevchooser and paman from Synaptic. Those programs allow you to choose and control much more of Pulseaudio than the few defaults of the Gnome Sound Preferences.

  10. well i have personaly tested this method almost into double digits.

    i get great sound from alsa.

    problems i had previous to doing this included, system freezing when configuring or using my sound in any way, conflicts caused by pulse and alsa using the same components in the os.

    i researched for almost 40 hrs or so in bugs launchpad. that script removes problamatic components, and adds some needed that arent included.

    i have also found that this streamlines your os in a way. without the continuos conflict between alsa and pulse, its seems to speed up what i alredy though was a fast distro.

    do as you please , there are other methods, but this one is tested , and fixes most sound problems i could find.

    my guess is that your have not the mental requirements to put more than 2 thoughts in a row at a time, being of course the reason you felt compelled to make your presence here a negative one. making your feel superior in your tiny little mind, for that moment moment in your ignorance. please do me a favor, so that i need not make you look any more a fool.

    think before you let the mindless barter spew from your lips, or, go put your head in the sand.

    this works, that is all

  11. Let us know how the upgrade to Lucid works in April… ;P

    Anyway, still you don’t say what was your audio problem. So nobody here with both brain and knowledge can try to propose a less destructive workaround.

  12. (sorry for the double post)
    I see now that you actually described your sound problems in a couple of lines in a comment, so I retire that part of my previous comment. But you should add this kind of information in the article… You don’t fix the problem: you work around it removing parts of the system. The title is still way too generic. Last post, I promise!

  13. Just wanted to say thanks soooooo much i have spent hours upon hours trying to get my sound working as im new to linux, i was gonna uninstall and go back to windows 7, your a legend thanks heaps!!!!

  14. the only downfall ive found is the fact that there are some usefull alsa based apps.

    ive dabbled with deleting all the .deb files and found a huge increase in speed, but i dont know what adverse effects this could also have as of yet.

  15. this worked perfectly, although after it installed java etc my system rebooted and i had sound!!! so didnt follow through with the other instructions deleting stuff, this info needs to be posted on the ubuntu forums because heaps of people are having trouble with sound! thanks for the help!!!!
    Hp pavilion dv6-1103ax
    amd64 athlon 2.1ghz
    8gb ddr2
    ATI radeon HD4530 512mb

  16. so i got an email from some ubuntu launchpad, advising that its dangerous to remove the pulse files via the method i posted.
    i tested the system with the method i had posted above, the only instability problem i had, was when i wanted to install a program that was based in pulse.
    surprisingly quite a few programs use pulse, so dont remove pulse that method.
    that script needs to be updated, because of the new kernels. but based on Raziel’s comments if you update the / remove the kernel pakages from the script. it should work fine.
    ill test it and update the script when i have time.
    do not remove pulse

  17. Honestly i have tried over 35+ methods to get my sound working, installing this, updating that, and NOTHING worked until i came upon this

  18. did a fresh install , did a full update, waited and 24 hrs later did another, installed ati catalyst, then…..

    redone for more recent pakages, as well, removed a couple useless ones
    doesnt involve removing pulse. gets sound through hdmi earphones and laptop speakers
    still testing, but all works

    sudo reboot

    i find it a little glitchy with pulse still installed. but ive only been messing with it for an hr after install. also notice that it seems there needs to be another entry in a sound file, posibly a pulse conf or sound conf, i think one of the freezing issues may be due to 2 sound cards and one command?? will look into it, info would be great.

    tx raziel !
