No sound on ATI Radeon HDMI in Debian/Ubuntu

  • 1
Debian based distribution users- Getting no sound through your ATI radeon hdmi?

I had this problem with the latest ubuntu/mint. Make sure xserver-xorg-video-ati package is installed properly and check sound settings output.

My only fix is to edit grub and add a kernel flag. Use your favourite editor and edit /etc/default/grub.

# sudo nano /etc/default/grub 

Tweak the 11th line.

To this:

Save an exit (ctrl + x for nano.) Reboot and try. Good luck.

You can also try installing the awful FGLRX package. I wouldn't bother though. Nasty stuff.

Installed Auxo

It's very pleasing to the eye. Way better then the normal multitask bar.

I have a broken volume ribbon so I can't mute the iPhone without going into assistance. Auxo solves this with a mute toggle. All I have to do is slide the bar across and use the many toggles it comes with. Useful.

Transfer files over SSH on Ubuntu

If you are looking for a GUI tool to transfer files to your Raspberry Pi, iphone, SSH account (remember them?) or another box, have a look at FileZilla.

It supports FTP, FTP over SSL/TLS (FTPS) and SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP). To be honest I only use SFTP -I don't have to install and set up an FTP so long as SSH is available. Just make sure to port to 22. It's so easy! Raspberry Pi owners should definitely have a look.

You can install it on debian/ubuntu/mint via the filezilla package.

# sudo apt-get install filezilla

Checkout There is even a server.

iOS6 tweaks - TorchNC

TorchNC (cydia) places a light/torch switch in the notification area.

This is so much easier than messing around in the dark looking for a torch app.
