I have no sound!

Postby lucinos on Wed Jun 06, 2012 1:23 am

I am new to LMDE, I am using it on my laptop for a few weeks and I like very much the idea (rolling or semirolling and compatibility with debian than ubuntu).

I tried the LiveDVD on my desktop (I want to change from ubuntu 11.10 instead of upgrading to 12.04 I am thinking of mint) and I have no sound. I do not have sound on LiveDVD of LMDE neither Xfce or Mate or Cinnamon (I tried both dvd). I do have sound on LiveDVD of Mint 13.

This looks serious problem. what I can try to make it work.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi, first of all, how are you testing the sound?

Also please install the inxi program (I am not sure if it is on the dvd by default):
Code: Select all
sudo upt-get install inxi

and post the oputput of this command:
Code: Select all
inxi -F
