Hello!

Have you had any better success with getting your speakers to work in other Linux distros? If so, which one(s)? Knowing which ones make your sound card work properly might be of help in finding you a solution.

Without the development team having a computer with that configuration at their disposal, it's virtually impossible to troubleshoot something of that nature. If your sound card requires proprietary firmware at startup, it would require whoever manufactured your sound chipset to get involved. Additionally, different manufacturers use their own specific implementations of these chipsets. Broadcom wireless drivers are an excellent example of this. As for Fujitsu, they do this quite frequently.

I have a couple of Tablet PCs that work fine in Windows, but in Linux, their Fujitsu touchscreens don't work. All the past solutions are now so old that they no longer apply - X has changed a lot since those days. Support for them is built directly into Windows itself, so I can't use ndiswrapper and a Windows driver. For me, touchpad support just isn't important enough to try and reverse-engineer these puppies.

Back when Linux hardware support was nowhere near what it is now, people used ndiswrapper so they could use Windows drivers in Linux. I've never had to use it myself, so I don't know how it works. However, it might be an option you may have to explore if you REALLY want your internal speakers to work, and you can't find a Linux distro that supports your sound card...

Tried installing the HD audio codecs driver that includes ALC262 from Realtek website for Linux.
http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsview.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=24&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false

Still does not work....

I tried to research a number of forums and this seemed to be a known bug affecting laptops with Realtek ALC262 sound cards way back 2012.. Was this problem never fixed by Linux/Ubuntu?

Hello!

I guess I've been blessed by everything I've tried to install so far being fully supported by the kernel. Well, it was at LEAST worth taking a shot at it.

 If you are unable to make it fly with ndiswrapper and the XP driver from Fujitsu, then there's not much more anyone can do at this point until a solution is found elsewhere...

There is no driver available at Fujitsu other than the one for XP.

Also, this is what I get when I check the driver:

Code: [Select]
zless /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/HD-Audio-Models.txt.gz
ALC262
======
N/A

Looks like my problem is the same as this one, and no solution yet:

I don't believe you can use Wine to install drivers, just programs. At this stage we have exhausted most of your options. Maybe someone else will come along with a solution that fixes your issue.

My laptop is a Fujitsu FMV c6240

1. It was running on XP before, I installed Linux and re-partitioned along the way so XP was removed.
2. No sound for built-in speakers after installation.
3. I did not uninstall anything because headphones does work only built-in speakers do not work.
4. From Fujitsu website, I downloaded the Realtek driver for XP and installed it via Wine.
5. Built-in speakers still does not work.
6. Tried removing required-any and added options hp-rp5700
7. Built-in speakers still does not work.

Hello!

A few questions:

1. What is the make and model of your laptop?

2. Before you installed these latest drivers, did you uninstall any and all previous drivers you may have installed?

3. Have you had this same problem with other Linux distros you may have tried?

Worst case scenario, if they're still using ndiswrapper out there, perhaps you could use THAT and the Windows XP drivers.

As always, just my $.02 worth...

There is nothing muted but the built-in speaker still does not work. Only the headphones work.

I posted pictures using imgur.com links.

The pictures show that whether I choose headphones or speaker as output, only headphones work. The built-in speaker never worked after Linux installation.

Built-in laptop speakers previously worked on XP.

Open up Audio Mixer and make sure nothing is muted in there. Also here is the guide to posting pictures on the forums - https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php/topic,29.0.html
