Been really enjoying my installation of Xubuntu 11.10 on a new Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15. After setting up my preferred apps and configuring the basic UI to taste, all has been well in general: A thoroughly serviceable alternative to Windows anything.
I pressed the mute hotkey (silly me). Now NOTHING will resurrect the sound for any application running on this laptop.
What on earth happened here? Will my installation ever work properly again???
Thanks a Buntu
