[SOLVED]Applications Don't Play Sound

Postby Wazoooski » Thu May 25, 2017 9:36 pm

I just installed Linux Mint 18 KDE and discovered that my application sound does not work. By application sound I mean YouTube, Skype, Discord, Steam games etc. I have tried many things such as going into the settings and changing the sound devices priority but nothing seems to be working. Does anyone have a fix for this? Thanks!

boot with your live usb and see if you get sound.
hard to say if it's your speakers not plugged in correctly or software issues or maybe your system is muted

if you have any volume controls on your keyboard try them

That has solved sound problems for a great many Mint users!
