Easiest fix for sound Sony VAIO VPCEB1S1E

Easiest fix for sound Sony Vaio VPCEB1S1E



In my previous post I allready explained some fixes. But now it's even more easier, just follow these little steps

   1)Download the following zip file on your pc
vaio_soundfix.zip


   2)Go to the folder where you downloaded the file and extract it

   3)This will create a folder called "vaio_soundfix"
Because we will need root privileges we will continue in terminal:
   4)Open up a terminal

   5)Change the current directory to the vaio_soundfix you just created*

   6)type in the following command (caution: capital I) and confirm with enter
sudo ./Install.sh

This will output something like:

username@computername:DirectoryWhereYouExtractedFiles/vaio_soundfix$ sudo ./Install.sh
Now in directory /opt/vaio/vaio_soundfix
update-rc.d: warning: /etc/init.d/soundvaio missing LSB information
update-rc.d: see
Adding system startup for /etc/init.d/soundvaio ...
/etc/rc0.d/K20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc1.d/K20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc6.d/K20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc2.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc3.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc4.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
/etc/rc5.d/S20soundvaio -> ../init.d/soundvaio
All done, press enter to quit…

So the warning is normal.

   7)Reboot & enjoy the bootsound!

   *Some more information on how to go to the right directory. If you have for example downloaded vaio_soundfix.zip to 'Downloads'. You just type the following command in the terminal:
cd ~/Downloads

'~' Must be a 'tilde' for some reason it won't show correctly...
cd is the change directory command and is followed by the directory to which you want to change. ~ is a wildcard that gets replaced by the home directory of the userdirectory. So this command will move your current directory to the Downloads-folder in your own home-folder.

For the people interested: You can also just open the Install.sh script with gedit if you want to see what it does. I've commented it a little bit.
