Re: Sound works in Mint 7 but not Mint 8, why?

Well I used this link: http://www.unixmen.com/linux-tutorials/525-resolve-nosound-problem-on-ubuntu910-karmic-koala And was able to finally get audio to work in Mint 8.

Sound works in Mint 7 but not Mint 8, why? - [Solved]

I had to remove Mint 8 because I just couldn't get sound to go at all. I tried Mint 7 and sound works beautifully. Now I can get some work done.

Why would sound work fine in Mint 7 but not in Mint8?

If you can tell me I'd appreciate it muchly, thanks.

I have no sound either, kind of frustrating, trying to sort this all out.

I'll be watching your thread closely.

Re: Mouse does not work properly in VMWare WinXP guest

No thoughts on this?

For the time being I've installed virtualbox but it doesn't have quite the same smooth feel to it but at least I'm able to get some work done today.

Still looking for some thoughts on how I might be able to get VMWare working with Win7.

I just uninstalled and reinstalled and tried using Win7 and the same thing happens, the mouse does not work correctly.
