[Solved] - Default sound level = mute

I'm very satisfied using PointLinux.
I have a minor problem for me but annoying problem for my wife.
After every log-in the sound level is muted. Every-time I boot in Pointlinux, I have to unmute the sound.
Any suggestion ?

have you tried to set it in sound preferences? just right click on sound icon to open it and uncheck mute boxes.

cheers,

I do it every time I enter in Mate Desktop, otherwise I can't hear any sound.

I am not real sure on this one, but I might try opening Synaptic, looking for sound software like alsa and try reinstalling the sound software. Maybe adding alsa mixer would help. You could also look at the pulse audio installation. I would be careful and do one piece of software at time, keeping track of dependencies, so you don't lose all sound.

alsamixer is already installed - you can ran it with terminal. can you show details of your souncard? use ether inxi -A or nplay -l commands. generally pulseaudio is not needed. it helps with systems with two or more cards (configuration is automatic). all can be done with alsa however it's not so easy to set config file properly.

I'm sorry that I returned so late to forum.
Thank you all for your advice for alsamixer.
The problem was solved. I installed the package alsa-utils. Then, I used alsamixer, I chose the sound card (F6), unmuted the muted channels and adjust the sound volume etc

PS. Alsamixer is not installed during - “my” - installation process.
