lost sound

Postby bratliff » Fri Apr 13, 2007 12:38 am

It never fails on any disto's, if I add programs there is a problem. This one is I lost my sound.

It would help if the deb distro would allow only deb installations. And depending on which desktop you are running the install software programs would allow only installing software that ran on the installed desktop.

Rant mode off

ratliff, back to XP.

Oh but you're meant to be able to install any app for any DE on any DE because debs are so smart they install all the dependencies.

like when i installed adept-installer on gnome and all the missing icons and who knows what else..... removed now.

but f-spot worked on kde (because digiKam is ****) along with its 42 friends.

thats a swing and a miss.

:wink:

... back to XP.


Sounds likes a configuration issue.

From your apparent frustration, I'd say that the first thing to adjust is your expectation.

Linux might not be an immediate and easy replacement of XP for you. It isn't for me, yet I know that Linux is capable of doing virtually everything I want to do with my PC -- but I approach it as a project. It's affordable. It's interesting. And it's a pastime with promise of freedom from the likes of Microsoft.

You are probably right, if you don't expect much you will not be disappointed.

That's the spirit! ;-)

And, on the flip side, you might just find yourself very pleasantly surprised.

Like, the first time I got Beryl going, it was so "Whoa!" (compared to XP) that I thought a leprechaun had replaced my 3 year-old PC with a workstation.
