Ubuntu Gutsy and sound problems

Linux RockI got dual boot at my laptop. Most of the time I use Ubuntu (Gutsy Gibbon at the moment). I do occasionally switch to Windows XP to use my digital camera software that is only available for Microsoft’s system. Few weeks ago problems with sound started. When I tried to use Firefox with a Flash it completely nuked the sound in Ubuntu. Not just for a moment but until next restart.

I know at least two people with same problem. Laptop I got is Dell Latitude D620. Have I fixed a problem? Sure I did, Google helped as usual 🙂

I got a deb package from Paul Betts, looks like he is fixing stuff 🙂 If you can’t find it there here is a copy. All you have to do is download it and install. All that is required is a Firefox restart.

I thought I will share this knowledge as solution is fast and simple 🙂

Cheers, Gregster
