Ubuntu 9.10 Sound Problems And Script Solution

Posted on Jan 05 2010 by Matthew Jakeman

I have been having a problem recently with my desktop PC where the sound would work perfectly through the speakers but as soon as I plugged in my headphones the volume decided to gradually fade down over 10 seconds to nothing. After this I would get no sound at all.

This hasn;t really been a big problem until very recently as I have decided to use my headphones a bit more to give my girlfriend a bit of peace and quiet. Obviously the problem needed fixing.

After a bit of messing around I managed to totally disable my sound card by accident. After doing this I stumbled across this nice little script.

This script did a brilliant job for me of detecting my sound card and configuring it perfectly in a matter of seconds with a little bit of user interaction from myself. I would highly recommend this script for anyone that is having sound issues.
