Please help me get sound and video

Postby JoshF on Sun Dec 07, 2008 12:42 am

I just installed linux mint for the first time. So far looks great but I have no sound except from my headphones.
Im assuming this is a driver issue with my on board sound. I did a search here and found where someone had the same problem and fixed by installing a driver from http://www.alsaproject.org. I downloaded the same driver but I cant figure out how to install it. Sorry to ask dumb questions but I cant seem to find the answer by searching.

Als it apears my video card is not installed. I tried to use the envy program but it does not seem to support my card 4850. I downloaded the newest driver from ati but again I cant figure out how to install it.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well using the envy program I managed to install a much earlier driver and catalyst control center. So everything looks better. I just need to figure out how to update to the newest driver.

With regard to your sound issue have a look at the Alsa web site:

You may find what you need there.
