My first post on these forums!
I'm starting to use Linux Mint all the time now, and beginning to ditch Windows, but I'm having a sound problem.
I'm completely new to Linux, so I don't know what information you need to help me out. The problem started after what I assume is a kernel upgrade? (The Linux mint bootloader developed another menu entry.)
There is no sound at all, when I click the volume control it says "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found."
Music and videos refuse to play: Totem: "The audio device is busy. Is another application using it?"
Test sounds in the sound control menu won't play with ALSA or pulseaudio or any other sound playback thing.
When you click 'test':
ALSA: "audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not open audio device for playback."
Pulseaudio: "audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect stream: Invalid argument"
What other information do I need to give?
