Hi. Whenever I try an Ubuntu live image, I get no sound initially. This is a bit of a problem because I need the sound to use Gnome Orca, as I'm visually impaired. The sound works, it's just set to mute by default for some reason. The problem is trying to adjust the volume using amixer on a live environment doesn't work, so I'm stuck having to get sighted help. Amixer works as usual on my desktop though, which is running Vinux 3.2 (Ubuntu 11.04). Not really sure what's going on with it, so any help on getting a live environment unmute would be appreciated.
