Sorry for the long post and the multiple replies.....
Good work on what have you done with this distro! It's really fast and smooth!
I'm a total n00b
and I started using the mint-kde latest distro(32bit) just today
... Everything works fine and like it has to be but with some wanderings in my side; I'm really tired after searching for hours the answers and finally came to the forum for some help
How do I enable the 5.1 (6ch) output on phonon?
I'm using the defaults gstream + pulse audio (or is it alsa?) and just obtaining full stereo audio when I unplugged the center/sub channel cable. On audio hardware setup it states internal audio where it should say hdaintel(ich7/realtek alc662), like on my previous mint12(LMGSE) installation, selecting the analog stereo duplex profile as default just outputs stereo sound(no 5.1ch options is given). My subwoofer is bleeding for some bumpy action
Now I'm really needing help!
On phonon the default audio hardware is gone and got replaced by independent device, device preferences just states dummy output. Sound is gone either on vlc, amarok or system sounds. I've tried sudo alasa-force reload/unload/load,etc but nothing helps. I don't really know what else to do, some guideance would be really helpful ;_; please!
I must say that on my previous Mint12(LMGSE) I installed kde 4.8 and the audio gone broke and hdaintel dissapeared from hardware selection on phonon :S Maybe that's the reason why it doesnt appears anymore on phonon, even with a fresh-clean install?
I would be really happy if all my questions could be solved
My setup is:
Linux Mint12 KDE 4.7.4 kernel 3.0.0-12-generic
