I am using compaq presario f700..i installed ubuntu lucid lynx and found that audio is not working.. i can find an audio icon at the task bar, but on selecting sound preference i am getting- No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found..
Also, the mute all option is diabled.. how can i get the audio to work ?

Try downloading the pulseAudio packages. Maybe they will do the work.

Also try this:

From the top menus go to:

There check at the hadware tab to see if there is any hardware detected. If any try GStreamer,PulseAudio and anything else.

I had a similar problem with ubuntu 9.10 and the problem was the GStreamer. Try going to Synaptic Manager (System->Administration->Synaptic Package Manager) and try removing any Gstreamer drivers and install PulseAudio or something else.

I am a new user in Linux too. So to be truly honest there is little chance that my suggestions will work.
