Linux Mint 13 Maya - KDE - No sound

Postby callipso on Tue Jun 18, 2013 1:27 am

Hi Guys,

I'm using Linux Mint 13 for a year or so but recently I have performed a fresh reinstall and I no longer have sound. The only difference is that currently I have installed KDE version instead of cinnamon. Microphone seems to be working. Volume is up and sound is not set to mute. System is up to date. Here are some details:

Re: Linux Mint 13 Maya - KDE - No sound

I had a similar issue recently while testing Mint 15 KDE. To get sound going I started alsamixer from the command line and noticed that the line-in setting was at 0. Moving it to 100% fixed the problem.

Re: Linux Mint 13 Maya - KDE - No sound

Postby AravindG on Fri Jul 05, 2013 1:00 pm

I am using Mint Maya (amd CPU and onboard radeon graphics 4000 series and onboard sound) also has the same problem , no sound when play after pausing in VLC while playing avi , mp4 ( dont know others) video files(if slider is moved sound comes again). in smplayer slider is not working properly. VLC saying that the index of certain files(which are right and plays well in some other OSs) are corrupt. if corrected also has the same problem. If we change brightness and gamma in smplayer and set as default and close the smplayer, its not the same(much different) when we see video in that player and other player. please help, its very much irritating...

I just remove .pulse and .pulse-cookie file from home directory and restart the machine.
After I logged in, I open the mixer from tray and enable Headphone. This is how I get my sound back.
