I recently had a problem with sound on my main account. The speaker icon on the upper right shows the speaker with --- after it, and when I would click on it I would have no option to mute/unmute and when I clicked on the slider to increase the volume the menu would simply disappear. I did not have any problems with the audio in a second account I created.Due partly to this I decided to reinstall Ubuntu 11.10, and my audio worked fine, until this morning I mounted my /home to a separate ntfs partition, and now I have the same problem again.I tried running through some of steps in the sticky th
I installed Ubuntu 11.10 alongside Windows Vista on my HP Presario V6317ca laptop. When I try to choose Windows Vista /dev/sda1 from the boot menu (called grub?), it goes back to the menu, but I don't mind that for now, as I can still see the files in Ubuntu. The wireless did work on that before I installed Ubuntu. I went to System Settings -> Additional Drivers and did activated Broadcom STA wireless drivers but yet I cannot detect wireless signals and the light on the laptop is still red.lspci | grep Broadcom\ Corporation03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4311 802.11b/g W

I'm running a dual-boot machine with Win7 Ultimate 64bit and Ubuntu 11.10 32bit, both kept up-to-date. Now the weird problem is that I don't get any sound at all except in Ubuntu. Everything works fine here, but Win7 is silent since a couple of days. At first I thought it was a Win7 problem, but it isn't. And I don't have a dedicated sound card but am using onboard/internal sound.In the meantime I've installed several others Linux distros (the latest versions of Zenwalk, Vector Linux, and anti-X to be precise) instead of Ubuntu, and I didn't get any sound at all in any of them.

How do you guys like this idea: http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/27614/The idea is about how Ubuntu should have a version of Gnome 3 without the shell (traditional style) available for Ubuntu 11.10 since Canonical won't include Classic Desktop (Gnome 2.30.2) anymore. Linux Mint which is another alternative To Windows and Mac has decided to include a "traditional layout" of Gnome 3 (no Gnome Shell) as their default interface. Of course if users want to they can install Gnome 3 or Unity both of which have received many positive and negative comments.SO check out the link to Ubuntu bra
