Jack detection in ubuntu 12.04 - call for testing!



Jack detection - what happens when you plug your headphones in - has been improved in kernel 3.3, and I hope we can have that functionality in Ubuntu 12.04 as well. It is e g one of the components needed to successfully have different volumes for headphones and speakers, i e to have your media keys controlling your headphone volume when your headphones are plugged in, and your speakers when they're not.

However, the kernel team has asked for some specific testing before they are willing to merge the new jack detection stuff into the 12.04 Ubuntu kernel, and I'm hoping that you would be willing to help us out with testing.


Do remember, that if you find a kernel regression, that we have a way of contacting you, so we can figure out what went wrong and hopefully fix the bug.

Thanks in advance!
