I have loved peppermint on my Vaio UX in the past,  so decided to run v10 (installed on a 16 GB SanDisk USB) on my Panasonic Let's Note SX1 ( https://panasonic.jp/pc/p-db/CF-SX1WEWHR_spec.html). However,  there is no sound (and speaker is not muted). Playing audio does show the sound bar moving up and down on the settings. I tried LinuxLite live on the same machine, again no sound. Sound works fine on Windows.

I have already tried these (https://itsfoss.com/fix-sound-ubuntu-1304-quick-tip/) with no effect.

The mouse pointer on the touch-pad (Synaptics) is is also very sensitive and stutters/jumps. Also, I cannot find settings to enable circular scrolling (as in Windows).

Any help is appreciated (I am not an expert Linux user).

Thanks

I have used Peppermint OS before  and got everything working.

Which version?

v4

4
So, I understand that there is no chance of getting the webcam to work?
Are there things I could try?

5
No problem. would you be able help me with instructions on how down grade my kernel?

I had a look at the links you sent...
Kernel 3.8?? Was that the last kernel with which this driver worked?

yes, with 3.8.0-35 as indicated here https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?topic=198.0.

 PCNETSpec please help.

You could downgrade the kernel to one that you know works.
Suggestion 4.4.0!

Never done such a thing. I am a basic linux user with limited knowledge of the OS.
It would be very useful if someone could patch the driver.

Just installed 32 bit Peppermint  on my Sony Vaio VGN-UX1XN (coming from Linux Lite) and cannot get my webcam working. I have used Peppermint OS before  and got everything working.  The new kernel seems to hame made stuff incompatible.

Some info below which I have gone through already- but nothing seems to be working for me.

1.  Asked the question in linux lite forums https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-software/install-ricoh-vgp-vcc3-r5u870-on-linuxlite-3-8-32bit/(no response so far) before moving to Peppermint

2. I have tried implementing https://modelrail.otenko.com/vaio-ux/r5u870-for-v4l2-linux-kernel-3-13  and

3. https://github.com/3pei/r5u870/tree/0.3.3 without anything positive.

I had everything working on my previous peppermint installation https://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php?topic=198.0. Thanks to PCNETSpec.

Need help now.

Force reloading of ALSA does not solve the issue unfortunately.

yes, the first thing I ran after installation was the full dist upgrade.

There is no sound after resume from suspend.

Also, as I said previously the screen is dim (about 50%) on start-up.

Please advise.

Was on v4. Just did a fresh install of v5. The sound does not come back after resuming from suspend. Also, the display brightness is dim after start-up. Please advise.
Machine is Sony Vaio U1XN

it's easy enough to check if it's the command or the key combo that's failing.

open
menu > Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts

select the "autorandr" profile

make sure
Code: [Select]
bash -c /home/jm/autorandr-master/autorandr --changeis in the "Action:" field

and hit click the "Run Action" button

if what you expected to occur happened .. the command is correct, so it must be the key cobo that's failing.

[EDIT]

if the command fails maybe try adding quotation marks:
Code: [Select]
bash -c "/home/jm/autorandr-master/autorandr --change"

Yes, its the key-combination which was failing. Also, as you suggested earlier  it should be

Code: [Select]
/home/jm/autorandr-master/autorandr --change
With Mod4 + g | m:0x40 + c:42  its working now. I will see if I can get another key combination working. Marking this thread as solved now. Many thanks.
