I just downloaded Linux Mint 15 64 bit to my HDD and the sound doesn't work. I have the hdmi cable connecting the built-in monitor speakers to a AMD ATI Radeon HD 6950 graphics card. In the sound settings output tab, the only option in the list for the 'play sound through' box is 'Analog Output Built-in Audio'. That means it doesn't even recognize the graphics card I have installed. In Software Manager, I did a search for 'amd' and there are several packages that appear to be for the Catalyst Control Center. I'm downloading this one titled 'fglrx-amdcccle'
Size: 90MB to download, 267MB of disk space required
Impact on packages: fglrx (installed), libc6-i386 (installed), lib32gcc1 (installed), fglrx-amdcccle (installed)
But, under preferences, driver manager, AMD nee ATI: Cayman PRO [Radeon HD 6950] is listed with 3 available drivers: 1) xserver-xorg-video-ati (recommended), 2) fglrx Version 2:9.010-0ubuntu3, and 3) fglrx-updates Version 2:9.012-0ubuntu1.
So, I switched drivers to the recommended one.
Did I do everything correct. Any other suggestions?
