    Will my logitech speakers ever work?

    Hi all-

    I am new to using a linux os due to the fact that I went away on vacation and came back to a dead pc. Since the idiots at Compac don't give windows disc out I had nothing to reinstall vista with so I said the hell with it.

    Anyways, so far so good. I am learning my way slowly and through trial and error.

    The problem I am having is that I have a set of logitech x240 speakers - 2 satellites and a subwoofer. I get sound out of the subwoofer but not the smaller speakers so the sound I do get is very muffled. I have tried looking for drivers but can't find any.

    Any suggestions? The speakers worked great before windows crapped out.

    Unless these speakers have on-board sound processing and hook up via USB, I doubt it's your speakers. It's either your soundcard or your mixer settings.

    I'm unfamiliar with Gnome's mixer but if it's anything like Xfce's (which is very likely), you're looking for a setting which controls how many channels to output in. Try both the 2.1 and the 2.0 configuration.

    Should look at least similar to this: http://img15.imageshack.us/img15/6489/screenshotchn.png

    Open a terminal and type:

    Code:
    alsamixer
    See if everything is turned up.

    had the oposite problem mine always worked ... had to blacklisten them maybe you wanna trade?

    edit: maybe you wanna blacklisten your other sound-devices (if there is only one, that will be used)

    Right click your speaker icon and select open volume control. Check your sound levels. Also click the preferences button in volume control.

    I have everything turned up in the preferences. My sound card shows up when I check it......


    ETA: when I did the alsamixer, I have all the levels up and I can still only hear sound from my subwoofer.

    Did you set the channel mode correctly?

    Also, what sound card/chipset are you using?
