ubuntu-studiohi. what was the ubuntu studio root passwort for the live version? i would like to use the su command15:20
cfhowlett!root | ubuntu-studio15:20
ubottuubuntu-studio: Do not try to guess the root password, that is impossible. Instead, realise the truth... there is no root password. Then you will see that it is 'sudo' that grants you access and not the root password. Look at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RootSudo15:20
ubuntu-studiothanks for answer15:21
nixninehey guys, I am having a problem with sound.  I am only showing a dummy output.19:55
holsteinnixnine: in jack?19:55
nixninein the sound properties19:56
ubottuIf you're having problems with sound, click the Volume applet, then Sound Preferences, and check your Volume, Hardware, Input, and Output settings.  If that fails, see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Sound - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting - http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin - For playing audio files,  see !players and !mp3.19:56
holsteinif audio *used* to work, maybe share what happened when it stopped working19:56
holsteinyou also cant rule out, maybe the hardware has failed/broken19:56
nixnineWell, it works sometimes but then stops.19:57
holsteinso, you can try and rule that out by using an officially supported driver in an officially supported OS.. or, in a live iso that you know used to support the hardware19:57
holsteinnixnine: what makes what stop?19:57
nixnineDon't know19:57
holsteinanyways, you can use the link above ^ and troubleshoot.. with the terminal.. "aplay -l".. "arecord -l"19:58
nixninejust happens randomnly19:58
holsteinnixnine: what happens?19:58
holsteinsound crashes? the device breaks? audio stops? what audio? when?19:58
nixninesound stops19:58
holsteinflash? in the browser? related to jack?19:58
holsteinim not the kind of person who can either read your mind, or, ask for a log file, and tell you a flashy command19:59
holsteini will need you to give me some facts19:59
holsteinare you using jack? are you using ubuntustudio? 14.04? 15.04? what audio breaks what? what audio device?19:59
nixnineIt doesn't stop mid stride.  It will be playing.  I will stop, say a youtube vid, go back later to the vid and no sound anymore system wide20:00
nixnineaplay-l no soundcards found20:00
holsteinnixnine: so that can mean the hardware is breaking..20:00
holsteinnixnine: if the hardware isnt present, you wont have any audio.. you cant "fix" that in ubuntu20:01
nixninethe same with arecord-l the same20:01
holsteinnixnine: right.. so, you can reboot, then.. i would power off the machine, and check physical connections.. i would look in the bios.. etc20:01
nixnineok.  sometimes it works, sometimes no.20:01
holsteinnixnine: when the device is gone, and not showing in aplay -l, you cant "fix" it, in software20:01
holsteinnixnine: sure. thats what i would expect, if it was dying20:02
nixninenothing software wise needed to recognize the sound card?20:02
holsteinnixnine: no20:03
nixninecan it be replaced?20:03
holsteinnixnine: as you state, it works, when its present.. and when its not, its not working20:03
holsteinnixnine: i dont know what hardware you have, but typically, you dont replace those. you just disable, and get another one..20:03
holsteinnixnine: *if* the card is bad, to replace it would be soldering a new chip onto the motherboard20:04
nixninehow do you put in another?20:04
holsteinnixnine: as i stated, USB, pci.. etc20:04
nixninereally? usb sound card?20:05
holsteinnixnine: you dont want to have a new chip soldered onto the motherboard. *if* thats the problem20:05
holsteinyou dont want to replace the motherboard, if thats the problem20:05
holsteinso, yes.. *if* you test, and determine the hardware is failing, and want to address the issue, i suggest, just adding a USB audio device20:06
nixninehow do i test?20:06
holsteinnixnine: as i said, i would use the officially supported drivers in the officially supported operating system. and/or a known good linux disto. live. one that i know supported the hardware20:07
