    12.04 terminal cannot find alsamixer

    I am setting up my new 12.04 system.Progress sofar good.
    First I cuuldn't boot the system until my ATI graphics card was removed.
    I have no sound.I go terminal alsamixer ......no such file or directory.It appears that my install disk did not have a complete 12.04 system.Where is alsamixer and is there another way to get to it or is there a script I can run to to add whatever is missing on my system or is getting old getting the better of me?
    I only have the computer's onboard sound system which should be ample.
    Any help please

    That's weird...

    What does Synaptic say about alsa-utils install status?

    Other guess would be the PATH variable is set incorrectly...

    Re: 12.04 terminal cannot find alsamixer

    You haven't pasted the full command...

    It seems to have downloaded alsa-info.sh correctly, now just check it has and then run

    $ bash alsa-info.sh --upload
    Intel C2D E7200 || Intel DG33FB mobo || 4 GB RAM || 64 bit Lucid/ Precise Desktops || WD Caviar Black 1TB, Green 2TB; Corsair Force 3 60GB
