Finally got sound forever- now, not working, no reason 17.1

Post by geekomatic » Mon May 14, 2018 8:41 am

Sound is my MAIN GRIPE w/Linux.

A basic thing that seems always f*cking up.

No issues for over a year- now, no sound.

17.1 Mate. Did nothing, no sound as of this morning.

Cinnamon has a Log-in sound, but Mate doesn't, unless you tweak things, somewhat.

is there any sound when watching YouTube ?.
or some video on an News site ?.

Now I know it's there, I'll work on it again.

Geez- I so hate Linux's sound issue-sh*t....It's great, otherwise.

when you lose the sound, then the 1st thing is to check it with some video off the 'net somewhere:
- just in case you've muted it, somehow.
you wouldn't believe just often that Mute thing happens . . .

but, in this case, you'll need to check the Sound Preferences, as well.
