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


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!

Hi again!

Testing has now completed and the feature has landed in Ubuntu 12.04 (kernel version 3.2.0-11.19 and PulseAudio version 1:1.1-0ubuntu5). Three bugs were discovered and fixed before the feature hit the archives.

I would like to thank mc3man, htorque, ronoc, xyzzyman, little jo, cking, arges, smb and apw for helping out with testing!
