Mint 15 Olivia Cinnamon - no sound though

Postby peter_w » Wed Sep 11, 2013 4:51 pm

My first delve into Linux and I'm very impressed with the clean elegant lines of Mint 15
and functionality is cool.

When I first installed Mint from disk I am fairly sure the sound was coming through the 5.1 speakers OK but after several reboots updates etc
I am getting nothing. I have plugged in a mini USB speaker as a stopgap until I get things fixed.

I hope its something simple as I have noted already the conversations on these forums border on the esoteric. Make that unintelligible for the newbies :?

check the setting, its not unusual for mint to load in the Mute setting

oh and welcome to the mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
