Hi Everyone:
I really need help.  I'm 74 and have just installed Linux Lite 1.0.8.  Everything works great, but I have no sound.  I right clicked on the speaker on the right bottom of the screen and checked the setting there.  Here is what I found. (Sound Card) PLAYBACK: Dummy Output(Pulse audio Mixer)...CAPTURE: Monitor of Dummy Output(Pulse Audio Mixer)  MIXER TRACT:  Only Master Track.  Left Click command:  amixer set Master toggle.  I don't see any sound cards listed????  Help!  Anymore ideas???

Thanks is ok!!

No one can help you without knowing what kind of sound card you have.

At the main menu, select System > Create System Report, run it, and reply with a cut-and-paste of the sound/audio portion. We'll see what we can do from there...
