UpDating problem

I accidentally shutdown the computer while it was updating. Later, when I tried to Refresh, I got this message: E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. E: _cache->open() failed, please report. When I tried to do 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' on ...

Re: No headphone sound Part 2

I now have headphones but not loud enough. But the headphones do not turn off the speaker. This is the response: I believe that this includes the response to the first two lines you sent me: roger@roger-H81M-S2H:~$ amixer -c1 sset "Headphone" unmute Simple mixer control 'Headphone',0 Capabilities: p...

No headphone sound Part 2

I have been dealing with no sound for a while now. The page we were working on disappeared.

I am now listening to music nicely. If I plug in my headphones nothing changes from the speaker, but I hear nothing in my headphones. When I was doing Mint 17, I did not have these problems.

Re: No Sound

Another problem that I am having is that I set this forum to email me when I get a response, but I never get a response. I am looking at "Notify me when a reply is posted" and it is checked, but I never get notified.

Re: No Sound

Mr. Een, you are so right. Thank you for your patience. I will get at it soon, perhaps tomorrow since it is late here for me.

No Sound

Chronologically: With Mint 17, I got speaker sound, headphone sound, and the speaker sound would disappear when I plugged in the headphones. I presume that this was the correct way. I installed Mint 19 some months ago, and I got speaker sound but no headphone sound. The speaker sound did disappear w...

Re: Cleaning my disk

I am hopelessly lost. I installed Gparted and the partitions that showed up did not look familiar nor did they give me a clue as to which partition was my current and most recent partition vs. all of the ones I don't want.

Re: No Sound

Two speakers that normally won't work if my headphones are plugged in.

I have forgotten how to get anywhere, as in "delete the files in /home/roger/.config/pulse" and to delete all of the files.

Re: No Sound

Dear patient MrEen,

All of the profiles in the dropdown menu are either "OFF" or have "HDMI" in their label.

Cleaning my disk

I have partitions on my hard disk going all of the way back to Windows. I want only the current Linux Mint 19.1 Mate and the previous Linux Mint 17.3. How do I clear up that wasted space so I can use it?

Re: No Sound

Dear MrEen,

Quick fix didn't work. It worked until perhaps when I turned my computer completely off.

I'll try "Potential better fix". How do I install PulseAudio Volume Control?
