No Sound - Sounblaster Audigy 2 - SOLVED!

Postby itszando on Sat Dec 08, 2012 5:59 pm

Just installed linux mint 14 today, looks great! The only problem I'm having is that I am not getting sound at all. I tried both the onboard audio and the soundblaster audigy 2 card. I have went in the bios and disabled the onboard audio just as a troubleshooting step from what i've read online. Any help I could get on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

Same problem here. Installed right today, Everything seemed to work perfectly, but... no audio. I've tried unmuting everything in alsamixer, and stuff... but on the "audio" section of the control centre I've noticed that the hardware isn't recognized at all.

Well my hardware is recognized. I went to alsamixer and unmuted "tone" and "3d control - switch" which are now set to 00 and I can't change... not sure if that matters or not.

As far as the other post:
Here is the output of cat /proc/asound/cards

Code: Select all
 0 [Audigy2        ]: Audigy2 - SB Audigy 2 Value [SB0400]
                      SB Audigy 2 Value [SB0400] (rev.0, serial:0x10011102) at 0xa000, irq 17

you can try to installing gnome-alsamixer:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install gnome-alsamixer


search from menu and launch: gnome-alsamixer


Turn on "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack"

setup master output up to 50%

Mank-in... Thanks a lot, that worked like a charm. Thanks to everyone else that helped, i'm now marking this post as solved. The Linux community really is a beautiful thing.
