Sound, no idea how to set it up.

Post#1 by h0wl » 06 Dec 2015, 13:31

I've been really enjoying this so far, it's the first time i've used linux, and i've got a save and everything, got everything working fine, and it's fast! :D
--------
now, i've tried to figure out how sound works, and i've tried setting up my devices, and it's kind of confusing. My sound is not muted, nor is it turned down, or anything like that. It just won't play sound, now i've done a little research on it, and i've found nothing that has fixed my problem.
--------
i'm trying to listen through my headset, if that has any type of relevancy.
