I hope that this is the right forum (it could belong in the newbie section as I may be missing something obvious).
Booting from the Mint 14 Cinnamon install DVD gave me an OS with sound (one of the things I specifically checked). After installing from the self same DVD I get no sound through the speakers (playing mp3 on local drive or from YouTube). I do get system sounds especially that annoying one as my session starts. I can get music through the headphone socket, though.
Have I done something wrong?
I have looked through the controls associated with sound and cannot find anything that improves the situation,
If I reboot to Mint13Mate sound works fine.
I am not sure where to look to start sorting this out.
Oh, and this is a Dell laptop.
