View Full Version : [ubuntu] No sound except error beep?!?

I installed Ubuntu about a week ago and the sound worked fine. But after about a day of tweaking (new programs, installing codecs, downloading updates) the sound disappeared. I've tried all of the sound fixes that I could with my limited knowledge of terminal windows, but I'm still getting no love.

Two telling facts about my sound:
1. I can hear only one sound coming from my speaker: the error alert (like when I press the wrong key and the little beep sounds)

2. I ran LinuxMint from the CD and it plays videos fine.

I've tried playing with every volume knob that I could find, but still no luck. Could i have a conflict?
