Front panel audio jack not working on Ubuntu?

Got a new Sony MBR-XB500 headphones (with extra bass) last week and it seemed to be well worth it.  Except that I ran into a few problems when I plugged it into my desktop front panel audio jack.  No sound came out both on Ubuntu 10.04 and even on Windows XP.

ADSL connections on Kubuntu 9.04

What Does NOT Work KNetworkManager can't manage ADSL connections.  Don't waste your time searching the web for solutions. It's not worth it in the end. WIDC won't work.  I never understood what WIDC was supposed to do.  It endlessly scanned my machine and got nothing.  The configuration options is a mess as well.  It doesn't... Continue Reading →
