No sound

I can't exactly say when or during which work,  but I have no sound on my system. I cannot hear songs, videos, internet, nothing. Players (or command play) works, but no sounds from my speakers.

Trying look for info how I have read on internet for describe my system:

Re: No sound

I tried set blacklist, no result. I am trying to find this issue on web, but my poor english is very impending me. I cannot find where to systematically start to look for reason of my problem.

I have read something about settings in /dev  - I don't  understand it, but couldn't there be my problem?

Re: No sound

Not sure but are you using Openbox? sometimes Pulseaudio can play tricks

Re: No sound

What all pulse related is running?

ps ax|grep pulse

I installed some Gnome package that installed pulseaudio-alsa pulseaudio libcanberra-pulse.
Sound did not work till I uninstalled these packages.
Originally I killed off these running processes with a "kill -15 <pulse related PID's>"
and my sound then did work after killing off these offendening pulse processes.
Then I removed the packages and all was well.

There are no working pulseaudio processes now

[vasek@vasek ~]$ ps ax|grep pulse

but it doesn't help.

Re: No sound

can you try the following (if you don't mind installing an app)

$ packer -S lsof
$ lsof | grep snd

It will tell you if any process is using the the /dev/snd modules

Re: No sound

I'm guessing that that pulse process is taking over again (PID 800)

If you kill it, does audio work again?

Re: No sound

can you kill volumeicon?  Or verify that it's pointing to the right device in the [alsa] section of .config/volumeicon

Re: No sound

This is my .config/volumeicon:

[StatusIcon]
stepsize=3
lmb_slider=true
mmb_mute=false
use_horizontal_slider=false
show_sound_level=true
onclick=urxvt -e 'alsamixer'
theme=Default

[Hotkeys]
up_enabled=true
down_enabled=true
mute_enabled=false
up=<Primary>Right
down=<Primary>Left
mute=Delete

[Alsa]
card=hw:0

Yes, I can kill volumeicon, after killing is voumeicon away, but no changes with sound.
As I said before, this system has worked fine from its release in 11/2011. I have no changed any configuration, as I remember. Reason of this problem must be something, what can happen during normal user using of PC.

Re: No sound

Got a feeling something installed or updated is to blame

What multimedia packages are you using [other than stock Archbang ones?]

Re: No sound

Another thing I've run into myself.
When installing KDE related apps.
knotify can be a problem.
See if you have any instances of knotify running and kill them off.

ps ax|grep knotify

Then kill -15 via the PID's if they do exist.

kill -15 <1st PID> <2nd PID>

Yes, I can kill volumeicon, after killing is voumeicon away, but no changes with sound.


In your original post, you have this:

[vasek@vasek ~]$ speaker-test -c 2 -D plughw:1

I don't know if hw:0 is the same as plughw:1 (logic would say no, but there are no rules, only conventions)

What is the output from:

cat /proc/asound/modules

Re: No sound

I had the exact same problem as discribed in the OP. I noticed that the sound wasn't working for anything I installed pidgin, vlc... yet it worked for deadbeaf and all.

I just installed skype but couldn't use it for the exact same reason. I searched the forums for a solution. Then I closed skype and my CPU usage went 100 % for some reason. Conky displayed pulse-audio as being the top cpu cruncher so I killed the process... And suddenly I had sound for pidgin... skype now makes calls (instead of saying there is aproblem with audio)... but it doesn't work again.

Maybe you can figure out what happened...

/proc/asound/modules
0 snd_intel8x0

Re: No sound

From now on I won't react to questions of people that don't give relevant hardware-info. See first post...

Re: No sound

Make sure you unmuted the channels - on my system some were mute.
Also, pablocal is right, you have to provide hardware info. I had the same issue, but I've twin sound card - one for HDMI and another for built-in speakers and by default ALSA used the first one. After I switched to another, I got the sound.

Thanks! This solved my problem with the audio! :-)

See also https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Al … Sound_Card

The label MM below a channel indicates that the channel is muted, and 00 indicates that it is open.
Scroll to the Master and PCM channels with the ← and → keys and unmute them by pressing the m key. Use the ↑ key to increase the volume and obtain a value of 0 dB gain. The gain can be found in the upper left next to the Item: field. Higher values of gain will produce distorted sound.
