Ubuntu: No sound from headphones on Samsung Series 7 Chronos ( NP700Z5a )



Question:

I know it's an old question, but I've gone through the FAQs on Ubuntu.com and can't find the solution.

Speakers work fine - ie if I go to System Settings > Sound, the tests sound. As soon as I plug in my headphones, it goes dead.

Some diagnostics:

duncan@pliny:~$ lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio"  00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)      Subsystem: Samsung Electronics Co Ltd Device c0b3      Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 29      Memory at c0800000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]      Capabilities: <access denied>      Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel      Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel  

And also

duncan@pliny:~$ sudo aplay -l  **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****  Home directory /home/duncan not ours.  card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC269VC Analog [ALC269VC Analog]    Subdevices: 1/1    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0  card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]    Subdevices: 1/1    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0  

And my alsamixer:

Headphones plugged in: With headphones plugged in

Headphones unplugged: With headphones unplugged

Thanks

Edit

It seems there is sound from headphones - it's just unbelieveably faint...


Solution:1

Installing the ALSA/DKMS package for Intel sound cards fixed this
