Re: Input mic not working.

So I went out and bought a new usb mic. Hooked it up and I can see the level meter moving in sound settings and pulse audio settings. Checked alsamixer and everything looked good there but I still can't get sound to record in audacity. Am I missing a setting in audacity or something stupid? :shock: ...

Re: Input mic not working.

I am not real familiar with Mint Debian Edition, but: in the "regular" edition, many audio problems have been fixed by installing pavucontrol, the Pulse Audio System volume control. I just fired up Mint Debian in VirtualBox, and I see that many pieces of the Pulse system are installed, and pavucont...

Proprietary Nvidia Drvier

I've been researching the forums and tutorials and see so many ways to install the proprietary nvidia drivers.
Can someone recommend the easiest and preferred way of installing latest drivers for LMDE2 from nvidia?

Will these drivers need to be updated as updates roll-out?

Thanks

Re: Hangs on installation...

Is this solving your problem? Oddly enough, I managed to overcome this problem by stopping the installer in terminal via Ctrl+C... and then it magically unfroze and continued to the disk selection screen. This is weird. I tried what you've mentioned yesterday and it didn't work. Tried it again it c...
