The only thing really missing from this install is this issue with the sound. I've searched all over the forums and i found one thing where you get the model and codecs and write them to a file, however, I can't seem to find what my "model" is because none of the postings have anything about Lenovo laptops. Here is the command they all asked for: Code:

cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Codec: Realtek ALC269
Codec: Intel G45 DEVIBX

With that info, how do I get the model, and how do I get my speakers to stop playing when headphones are plugged in. Also, I don't have any software installed like pulse audio either, so it's not that.

Thanks so much to whoever can answer this...

The Ubuntu forums are nearly useless... ive never gotten a correct answer back on that site.

This is a good question, although I do not have a thinkpad my lenovo workstation at work does the same thing and I have to find a proper audible level so the headphones are loud enough but speakesr are not too loud to distract everyone else. – Chris Sep 15 '10 at 17:02

Linux on a ThinkPad? The first port of call should be the ThinkWiki.

I'm guessing that you have an Intel powered Edge, from those specs.

Apparently, you need to add the line...

options snd-hda-intel model="olpc-xo-1_5"

to the end of /etc/modprobe.conf/alsa-base.conf

See here.

I have an L512, and that didn't seem to work, i think you also have a typo. I believe you meant modprobe.d? I added your line at the very bottom tho via sudo gedit -> saved -> reboot and went to and played music with headphones in and it still is coming from the speakers :'( – Oscar Godson Aug 12 '10 at 19:04
I just pasted what was on the page I linked to at the bottom. – paradroid Aug 12 '10 at 19:22
do you have any other ideas? If I use pulse audio it works fine – Oscar Godson Aug 12 '10 at 19:27

ALC269 accepts following "model" options:

basic       Basic preset
quanta  Quanta FL1
laptop-amic Laptops with analog-mic input
laptop-dmic Laptops with digital-mic input
