I have a tape deck attached to my line in.  I want to be able to hear the deck through my attached speakers... I can't seem to get the sound settings to allow me to do it.  I've installed Audacity, and can get it to semi work.. while recording.. but its garbled.  However.. optimal would be to be able to hear the sound through my system speakers while playing and record when I want to record.  Now this is a easy set up in windows.. and I'm sure there must be something in Linux to run from the command line.  Ubuntu seems to have a loop back function to select in the switch tab of the sound settings.. but I can't see anything on Linux Lite.  I prefer to keep Linux Lite as it is quite handily the best Linux Distro to date!
