which works perfectly.
Investigating under LMDE I decided to follow mads' guide to removing PulseAudio and replace it with ALSA - viewtopic.php?f=42&t=60485
I have carried out the steps exactly as detailed and all looked good, so I rebooted.
I now have no audio at all. Although I have a volume control on my panel which I can adjust it makes no difference. If I try running any audio app it shows the audio as basically 'missing', and if I use my laptop 'hot-keys' to adjust the volume I get a greyed-out icon with no adjustment.
Any ideas? I though tI was doing the right thing in removing PulseAudio as I need to be able to get my headphone socket working, but this has thrown me a bit.
