No Optical sound Mint 14 Nadia

Postby m00nster on Thu Dec 20, 2012 2:13 pm


Im sitting on a Asus p8z68-V Pro/gen3 motherboard, but Mint wont recognize my optical output, nothing is listed in the audio settings "output" exept my graphics cards HDMI (HD6990) and the built-in Audio Analog stereo?

Thereś no option for optical output under the "hardware" tag aswell, just same options as above.

Suggestions? Im a newbie when it comes to linux :roll:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Go to the synaptic manager a search for gnome-alsamixer

After installing open gnome-alsamixer then select IEC958 digital output. Make you select your sound card.
