Thread: No sound

  1. #1

    Default No sound

    I've recently done a security (auto) update and since then I cannot get any sound at all. The only sound I do get is when you start up.

    Where do I start looking?

    TIA

    There are many possibilities and you don't say what DE you are using. I have encountered an intermittent problem with KDE4 which appears to set the master in the mixer to mute.

    So if you have KDE4 click on the speaker icon and click the link to the mixer.

    Open a shell and run alsaconf

    I'm running kde 3.5 and it is intermittent, sometimes no bother other times it takes a couple of restarts to sort. I have had the speaker mute automatically before (no idea why)

    Tried the alsaconf and got

    rogram 'alsaconf' is present in package 'alsa-utils', which is installed on your system.

    Absolute path to 'alsaconf' is '/usr/sbin/alsaconf', so it might be intended to be run only by user with superuser privileges (eg. root).

    bash: alsaconf: command not found

    Do I log in as root and retry?

    No need to login as root.
    Use <su> , it defaults to root if no user id selected.
    It will ask you for a password
    If the password for that user is correct that session has the
    privileges of that user.

    Use <exit> to return to the normal user for that session.
