View Full Version : obtain: system -> preferences -> sound ?

There are many references in ALSA related threads that say to use

system -> preferences -> sound

to configure the sound system. However, there is no such path in xfce on Mythbuntu 8.10. The closest thing I could find was a sound control panel which just listed for each sound card a large number of devices, all of which were checked. There was no way to set up 3CH, 6CH, 5.1 or other sound configurations. What must be installed (or run, if it is already there) to obtain this Ubuntu functionality on Mythbuntu?

Also, there are references to a program (script?) "alsaconf", but that also seems not to be present in Mythbuntu 8.10.

sudo apt-get install alsaconf

did not help. What package contains this program?
