View Full Version : [ubuntu] Creative Fatality headphones no sound

These are some kick ***** headphones and I enjoyed them very much in Windows but now I can't get any sound. I went to System>Preferences>Sound and in sound events,music and movies and audio conferencing it recognizes my headphones by name. I tried the alsa and oss (drivers?) and only the oss works when I run the test. So why can't I hear sound when I play music files in VLC (mp3 and wma)? I also don't get any sound when I play UT 2004 Linux version. What else am I missing? The onboard chip is a Realtek hd something or other. I can get the exact name if it's needed. Does anyone have any ideas?

UMMM DOH I found that the headphones were muted in the mixer. Problem solved.
