Ubuntu / Re: Script that creates files/folders on samba drive fails
« Last Post by orbikit on Yesterday at 11:22:03 am »
roger is also a member of root.

Still does not explain why if I redirect the script to create the folder/files on any local drive it works, but not Samba shares...

Ubuntu / Re: No sound in 16.04

Thanks for your help Keith, I'll look into PulseAudio (never heard of it before...).  I can free up a slot if need be for a sound card.

Mark, It's an Abit IP35 Pro motherboard. Outputs below. The HDMI device must be the video card as no sound card is installed.


To run a command as administrator (user "root"), use "sudo <command>".
See "man sudo_root" for details.

mike@mike-ubuntu:~$ aplay -l

Do you know the make and model of the motherboard ?

and can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
aplay -l
and
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec* | grep Codec
and if any
Code: [Select]
cat /proc/asound/card1/codec* | grep Codec

many thanks, you were right! The zero, that wasn't got me. Just redid it and all is well.
This is good for me as it's making me think and remember how I used to do things on big machines with less power than my laptop.,
My brain hurts.

I'm out of my depth here, Mike, but it does sound as though you have serious motherboard problems. 
In my own experience, using a separate board has always solved any difficulties - but then I always had spare slots available! 
Do you have PulseAudio Volume Control installed?  Not sure it will help fix anything but it might give you some clues about what's going on.  I've found it useful when trying to get sound out of Audacity and Bluetooth. 

Sorry I can't make any more useful suggestions.

Yes, desktop. Onboard sound only.

Having realised that the method of wiggling the jack introduces a horrible buzz, I've given up on the rear panel - I think the sound on the motherboard is shot.

This is a dual-boot box with Windows. In XP I have got the front panel sound working nicely (oddly, by disabling the front panel jack detection in Realtek Audio Manager. A known problem). If I can just achieve the same thing in Ubuntu, that will do, but I can't find the equivalent settings..

Next thing will be to install a soundcard, but the box is a bit full so I would have to remove some other card. Not ideal.

Peppermint / Re: Neither software or package manager working ! ?? (SOLVED)

Ah!! No worries - Thought I was losing the plot !!

Any idea what caused this? ( and does it matter ??! )

thanks again for your help.

You're most welcome Sim :)

BTW, it wasn't necessarily you missing the commands .. I added the last 3 as an edit, probably after you'd first seen the post.
