Title: ASUS E200HA sound doesn't work - Linux Lite 4.2
Post by: rafaelpg on December 22, 2018, 01:55:27 PM
Hi,

I need some help. I have a notebook, ASUS E200HA and I have just installed Linux Lite 4.2. Everything seems to be working really fine but the sound does not work. In the audio mixer everything seems to be ok, but I just don't get any audio. I've been searching for answers in internet but it seems that there is a different solution depending on the distro that you have. Something to do with the kernel not supporting this hardware. I haven't seen any entry in this forum about this model of ASUS. Does anybody have any solution to this problem?

Thank you so much!

In the audio mixer everything seems to be ok

is that the gui mixer ? if so you might be better trying alsamixer in the terminal, check the master column is not muted.

Great, thanks. I will check it up and see if it works or I'm able to make it work.
