linux mint sound drivers for compaq CQ40 laptop

Postby arun gopi on Sun Aug 30, 2009 10:44 am

I am not getting sound in linux mint.(SOLVED)

Solution>>>

1. copy-paste the following command into the Terminal:

gksudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

2. and add the following lines to the end of the /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf file:

# Keep snd-pcsp from beeing loaded as first soundcard
options snd-pcsp index=-2
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m4-1
options snd-hda-intel enable_msi=1

3. Then navigate to System>Preferences>Sound and change everything to ALSA

4. copy-paste the following command into the Terminal:

gksudo gedit /etc/group

5. replace the following line (or something very similar to it):

audio:x:29:pulse

with this line:

audio:x:29:<your Ubuntu logon name>,pulse

6. reboot and retest sound

7. In the Mixer control panel, make sure to unmute all channels and increase the volume on all channels

Linux Mint just installed. No audio.
Linux for humans? Too much encrypted codes required to get simple audio drivers. And Not working.
Too complex. That´s why people use Windows.
Windows works!
