Microphone not working Sony Vaio Pro 13 Ubuntu 13.10
- date: September 4, 2013
Have had great success so far running Ubuntu 13.10 on the Sony Vaio Pro 13 Haswell based laptop. Almost everything works great out of the box. The only component I've noticed an issue with thus far is the microphone. Currently on kernel 3.11rc7. Alsamixer, the system sound preference, and pavucontrol all show both a microphone (which I believe is input through the headphone jack) and an internal microphone. It's the internal mic I'm interested in using for quick skype calls or hangouts. Selecting the internal mic with pavucontrol and playing with the level settings in alsamixer hasn't made any difference. This issue has been noted running Arch linux as well, detailed here. Any ideas how to proceed? Perhaps this is a kernel related issue I should be reporting. Any help is greatly appreciated!
BCM4313 driver not working under various drivers in Ubuntu 13.04.
- date: September 16, 2013
So I purchased an Asus 1015e-DS03 Ubuntu laptop a few weeks ago for school. It came with 12.04 pre-installed and everything was dandy. I then decided I would upgrade to 13.04, and ever since that day I have not gotten wifi to work for more than 1/2 of a second. By default, when booted up the wifi will be hard-blocked. If I suspend the laptop, the wifi will work for about 1/2 second, just enough to list the nearby wifi networks, but never long enough to connect and it will soon go back to saying it's hard blocked. When proprietary drivers are enabled, the wificard is recognized but never successfully scans. It will tell me wifi is on and available but it's useless even right next to the router, so it's not a range thing. Now, I know that there is a working configuration for this, as it came installed by default with working drivers. But I seriously have no idea what to do, I've tried the guides http://askubuntu.com/questions/94021...an-asus-1015px and http://askubuntu.com/ques
Problems with booting (Ubuntu 13.10 on Sony Vaio Pro 13)
- date: October 23, 2013
I've been working for two days now without really arriving anywhere which is starting to get really frustrating. The problem is that I've just got my Sony Vaio Pro 13 that I hoped to use for my studies. But unfortunately I can't use it for anything right now as neither Ubuntu 13.10 or Linux Mint 15 will boot on this machine.
I've disabled secure boot and switched to Legacy mode as well as disabled Intel(R) AT Support System. The whole disk is formated into msdos and gpt. I've also tried with UEFI and gpt, and all other combinations, but still get the same result. I've also tried Installation and running my live-USB for both distros works like a charm without any problems. The problems start when the system is restarted, and tries to boot. I've run boot-repair which makes me able to boot into the operating system very slowly after minutes of booting. But when I'm starting my system for the second time after rebooting I run into this screen: http://i41.tinypic.com/29z
Microphone not working in Ubuntu 13.04
- date: June 30, 2013
I recently installed 13.04 on my Lenovo U510 laptop, and both my internal and headphone-based mics don't work.
I made sure they were unmuted on Alsamixer.
They register when I tap on or blow into the mics directly, but not when I speak.
Skype says there is a "Problem with Audio Capture"
Sound Recorder refuses to record at all.
Google Hangouts lets me initiate a hangout, but my partner only receives static and ambient noise.
Sony Vaio Pro 13 Dual Boot Ubuntu 13.10 + Win8 Grub2 hangs on initrd
- date: November 20, 2013
This is my first thread here and I've solved many problems with the threads stored here.
But this time, I have a problem, which I can't solve following suggestions in threads of ubuntuforums.
I bought a Sony Vaio Pro 13 (SVP1321C5E) last week with Win8 pre-installed.
It has an EFI partition on it and a pre-installed Win8 partition, as well as a recovery partition and a SonyCare partition (it's like the recovery of the recovery partition)
I wanted to install ubuntu 13.10 alongside my Win8 (I want to keep it because my laptop is too new for Win7 since there are no drivers available for particular built-in hardware)
With a ubuntu bootstick I tried to install Ubuntu 13.10 alongside Win8, but did not succeed, because this option was not available, maybe there is a little mixup between MBR and GPT and it can not find the installed Win8 partition.
So I installed it by clicking "Something else", using the previously freed space by shrinking the Win8 partition.

microphone not working in Skype..
- date: August 26, 2012
After installing the new distribution 12.04, everything works fine, except for the microphone in Skype. The video and speakers work ok, though.
Everything works good on Google Talk. Audacity shows that the internal microphone works on the laptop. I have been playing around with alsa mixer and pulse audio control but still can't do anything. I tried uninstalling skype and installing the newest version... which isn't for 12.04 specifically.
Is there a specific command that I could use in a terminal, or should I just ditch Skype and use Google Talk?
Any advice would be usefull, since I can't understand why it worked in previous distributions. Maybe it is a bug in skype.

Could not get Joystick working in Privateer Remake for Ubuntu 4.10
- date: March 8, 2005
I just figured out how to get the joystick working in Privateer Remake for Ubuntu 4.10. This fix may also work for other linux distributions that are using udev.
What I did was edit the line in vegastrike.config for the joystick to the below.
#set Joystick joy_normal
Then I issued the following command in the root terminal:
ln -s /dev/input/js0 /dev/js0
Now I can use my joystick in Privateer.
