A problem with a sound card

Postby ICIT2 » Fri Nov 10, 2017 9:47 pm

I am new to Linux insomuch as I tried Mint many years ago and was confounded then but it seems a lot mor user friendly now but please bear with me

I have an Asus Xonar DGX sound card which I isatlled before deciding to get away form Windows and I am not usre if there are drivers available in Linux see pic so is there any way of finding if I can us this sound card I did see on another thread about running the inxi -Fxz in the terminal window but did not see any reference to the Xonar card yet the driver disk is showing up as in the screen shot.

Any advice would be really helpful and appreciated as the on board audio is pretty ordinary if and when it will play through my sound system .

Just to verify, check if the sound is not muted. Once you verify this, go to Sound Settings. In the Sound Settings, you’ll find that you have practically nothing here except a dummy output. It means that your sound card is not even recognized. click reference write my paper. The one shot solution which fix the sound problem is following command in terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T). you will be getting pseudo code.

Linux Mint comes with drivers for just about everything, including your sound card, and apparently everything else in the Xonar series. I would install PulseAudio Volume Control (find it in Software Manager or Synaptic as 'pavucontrol') then mess with the settings. The CDs you get with computer hardware usually have ONLY Windows drivers, which, of course, are useless in Linux. And did you go to the link that trytip posted?
