Ubuntu Sound on Acer Aspire 5052Posted by Hodge on Feb 22, 2008 in Technology, Ubuntu • 3 comments •
When I first installed, I had no sound. So, I played around with the sound control panel (double click on the speaker in the top right), looked at the drivers (ALSA installed correctly), and eventually found that Ubuntu sees my laptop speakers as “Surround”, and not the default setting of “Front”. So, right clicking on the sound applet in the panel, and choosing Preferences allowed me to change the device and track control to Surround. Likewise, double clicking, and opening up the control panel, made sure that surround was visible, and up at full volume. Sound works.
