Thread: 3 issues on thinkpad t400

    Default 3 issues on thinkpad t400

    Hi guys,

    i am a fun of and running opensuse 12.2 32bit on a thinkpad T400. it has dedicated volume buttons close to the keyboard. when i first installed, right at the top of my screen, there was an audio application which after awhile disappeared. so i am unable to use the keys... secondly, my internal video device (camera) works well during daylight but doesnt work in the night... thirdly, my internal mic doesnt work either.

    Please help me resolve these issues.

    thank you

    denis

    I googled it and it looks much like my R61
    The specs are way better though

    Are you using kde or gnome?

    I had a look in my kde settings for the keyboard and T400 is not listed but my R61 is. Try selecting the Lenovo (IBM) ThinkPad R60/T60/R61/T61

    Go to Yast > Hardware >Sound
    See if you can configure it from there

    Reboot

    Also check mixer volume on from the panel

    That info provides a starting point. Have a look at this Multimedia subforum sticky information. It will tell you how to collect and present further tech detail needed to identify the problem. There is also a link there to a Wiki guide on Audio Troubleshooting in openSUSE.

    What is it showing in Gnome's System Settings > Sound? You can also test speakers under Hardware tab.

    Also check under YaST > Hardware > Sound > Other, for volumes, play test sound, and whether PulseAudio is enabled?

    I know, you posted that before.

    What about Gnome's system settings for sound? Click on your user name at top-right corner of desktop to see it in drop-down menu.

    I also asked you to check out "Other" menu in YaST > Hardware > Sound (bottom-right of that screen you posted the info from). What did you find out?

    At Gnome's system settings; theres no sound device and where is says "choose a device for sound output"; theres nothing and its all grayed out. all parts are inselectable.

    Other--> Volume, mic, speaker, mic boost etc are all at 100

    play test sound; i hear the sound

    start sequencer, i click ok but nothing happens

    set as primary card; its ok

    pulseaudio configuration is enabled

    Is that what you wanted to know?

    anything else???
