Re: Fresh install, no audio from sound card

I got frustrated and just did another fresh install and now everything is working. Not sure what the problem was but thanks for the help anyway.

Re: Fresh install, no audio from sound card

Just to be clear, I was saying to navigate to the column, which you said had no volume bar, no mute indicator at all, just blank, and hit the up arrow so it isn't blank. It might first say Analog output, then the next time you hit the up arrow it might say Multichannel in the blank space above the ...

Go back to this one and hit the up/down arrow until it says multichannel or similar.
... it does say that. The post you quoted says it.

Re: Fresh install, no audio from sound card

Not sure why I didn't get to this last time, but run alsamixer in the terminal, and when it opens press F6 to choose the Xonar device. Any columns with MM at the bottom are muted. Use the arrow keys to select columns, and the m key to toggle mute. Also see if any columns have the word disabled. The...

Re: Fresh install, no audio from sound card

Updated to 19.1 today in hopes that it would fix this issue but it hasn't.

My speakers work fine when hooked to other devices, the soundcard is detected, it shows sound as being played, but nothing comes from the speakers.

Re: Fresh install, no audio from sound card

The only options are to lock the channels together or mute/unmute. The volume slider is moving up and down as if there is sound playing but there is none.

Okay, on the Output Devices tab, remove the checkmark on the HDMI setting by clicking on it, then test.
I already did that before I posted the thread.

Re: Fresh install, no audio from sound card

No, it's the same result with the HDMI turned on or off. I just turned it on so I could hear something.

Fresh install, no audio from sound card

I had been running Linux Mint 17 for years on the same machine, was working fine earlier today. I installed 19 and I cannot get any sound out of the sound card, an Asus Xonar DG. The HDMI audio running out of the video card (GTX 650ti) works fine. The sound card is hooked to a 5.1 Creative analog sp...

Re: How Long will a Pentium 4 be able to run Linux Mint?

If you use a lightweight desktop like LXDE or Xfce you'll get a lot more out of older hardware.

Re: GOG.com will officially support Linux Mint fall this yea

Yes!

I've been waiting for this for a long time. Now there are two major DRM-free stores for Linux games (GOG and the Humble Store). It's good for Steam to have competition, because I hate DRM and never buy anything that includes it.

Re: Vote for Linus Torvards in CNBC

Done. But he seems very far from Steve Jobs... Steve Jobs would have amounted to precisely nothing if not for Wozniak and Atari pioneers Nolan Bushnell and Al Alcorn. Bushnell hired Jobs at Atari and Wozniak did most of Jobs' work. The first Apple computer was made out of parts taken from Bushnell'...

Re: What made you switch to Linux Mint?

MATE.

I hate Unity and GNOME3 with a passion and while I love Xfce, I wanted to get back to a GNOME2 look and feel for awhile. Mint was the only reasonable choice.

I am currently still using 7200 RPM HDDs. My gaming rig needs the space and it already runs and boots plenty fast for me. The laptop I may move over to an SSD if/when the HDD fails, but at present I don't think the performance increase is worth the price considering I have no complaints about how th...

Re: What is your favorite or least favorite desktop

My favorite is either Xfce or MATE. I use them both consistently. I like traditional desktop metaphors with logically laid-out, text-based menus. I don't use Cinnamon so I can't comment on that. I hate Unity with a passion. It is counter-intuitive and in my way. I don't like the dock on the side, I ...
