no sound on external speakers after install

Post by arnauld » Tue Feb 06, 2018 10:03 am

Hello,

I just installed the latest Mint on a laptop and I have no sound on the external speakers. The built-in speakers of my laptop have the sound though.

My speakers were working fine on my previous operating system (Ubuntu Mate).

Thank you for any help.

Hi arnauld,

Welcome to the Linux Mint forum!

If using the Cinnamon edition, what devices are listed under 'System Settings' -> 'Sound' (or 'Sound Settings' from the Sound applet)?

Thank you for your reply.

I use the Mate edition.

BUT...It is working now, though I didn't change anything :-)

Great to hear sound is now working! :)

Please be kind enough to edit the original thread title adding <SOLVED> at the beginning, so, even though the issue resolved itself, others will know no further assistance is required. Thank you.
