Hello! :)
For some reasons, sometimes after install, the speakers are muted. Some Apps also mute the speakers. Why does this happen, it's above my skills to explain.

So, here is what to do:

Open a terminal window or use Synaptic Package Manager.
Copy/Paste the following, if you use the terminal:


--- Code: ---sudo apt install pavucontrol -y
--- End code ---

Now in the Linux Lite main menu, choose Multimedia and from here, choose PulseAudio Volume Control. ;)

Good luck! :)

To make sure the speakers are functioning you may try with
--- Code: ---speaker-test
--- End code ---
for that, open a terminal and type
--- Code: ---speaker-test  -c 2
--- End code ---
if everything's fine speakers will make some noise and you should get an output similar to this:

--- Code: ---$speaker-test -c 2

speaker-test 1.2.2

Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise

Buffer size range from 96 to 1048576
Period size range from 32 to 349526
Using max buffer size 1048576
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 262144
was set buffer_size = 1048576
 0 - Front Left
 1 - Front Right
Time per period = 11,019373
 0 - Front Left
 1 - Front Right
^CTime per period = 11,026943

--- End code ---

If you get
--- Code: ---command not found
--- End code ---
error you might need to install
--- Code: ---alsa-utils
--- End code ---
install with
--- Code: ---sudo apt-get install alsa-utils
--- End code ---
and run the speaker-test command again. You may also try with
--- Code: ---alsamixer
--- End code ---
and see if can fix the sound with it.

I believe pavucontrol is already installed in LL, might be wrong though and I'm not in LL right now but I think it is. Otherwise yes,  this is another option and probably an easier one since it has a GUI.

Hope this helps! :)

Took your advice, but I still don't have any sound from speakers.

Which one? Installing pavucontrol or running speaker-test? Is this a laptop or a desktop? If a laptop, do you get audio from the internal speakers? If a desktop, can you try with another set of speakers? Just to rule out they're not malfuctioning.
