Sound problem and boot problem... And webcam

Post#1 by Osurne » 11 Sep 2014, 01:27

My laptop speakers work fine but as soon as I plug in my headphones I get no output I looked at the mixer and it shows head phones turned up and i unmuted it because plugging my headphones in muted it and i cant get the head phones to work..

Boot problem if this explains it is I am using windows 8.1 alongside porteus... Sooo... Any help getting it to show up on boot?

Plus it shows up as me not having a webcam. I am literally a linux noob. Im sorry if this causes any trouble

Welcome osurne. :)

You should write one post by problem.

For the sound of the headphone, in a terminal use the command alsamixer and use the arrows to modify the sound of the headphones:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ alsamixer
