Comment 0 for bug 253422


I have a laptop LG E500.V.APSCG and installed Ubuntu Hardy on it. I had a few problems at the beginning since it's a new laptop, but it works well now.

One of the few remaining bugs (together with ACPI not working) is that pluging in headphones don't mute the laptops speakers.

I've found an interesting thread in the forums which deals exactly with this problem:

My sound card is listed there (ACL883) and I've tried all the possibilities from the list. Unfortunately none of them works… I've also tried with "3stack-lg" but it does nothing.

For more information:

$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Codec: Realtek ALC883
Codec: Generic 11c1 ID 1040

$ aplay -l
