Sound plays (drum roll) at login screen. In Ubuntu and Xubuntu XFCE no sound emits from the laptop speaker, but does from the external speakers. Pulseaudio panel monitor bar dances with the sound.... but nothing heard.
A number of tests have been carried out, as listed below, and in the comments of Answer 1. As yet nobody has come up with a method of establishing how to direct the sound to the internal speaker.
Ubuntu MutiMedia forum suggests asking here, as nobody there can identify the correct procedure to rectify this problem All tests have been logged on that forum.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
Here's the Alsa info script log: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=77747dc55bb07c3ef222dec15332bd35d5ab9aaf
$ echo autospawn = no >> ~/.config/pulse/client.conf #use ~/.pulse/client.conf on Ubuntu <= 12.10 $ killall pulseaudio $ LANG=C pulseaudio -vvvv --log-time=1 > ~/pulseverbose.log 2>&1
$ pacmd No PulseAudio daemon running, or not running as session daemon. $ rm -r ~/.pulse*; pulseaudio -k E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Failed to kill daemon: No such process

Perhaps if we could establish the sound setup at the login screen, we would see how it should be configured.
Can anybody help?
