[CLOSED] Fresh Install of Arco Linux No Sound

Post by Ztcoracat »

Hi:

I just did a fresh installation of Arco Linux yesterday and I do not have any sound.

I opened the terminal and ran alsamixer and unmuted the front mic. However I still don't have any sound.
Not sure how to install pavucontrol and if that's the answer or not?

I'm not sure what needs to be done to get the sound working.
Can someone give me a hand getting the sound to work?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. ;)

Try this:
pacman -S alsa-utils
Then fire up alsamixer with
alsamixer
Go to 'Master' then press M and then keep hitting the up key to bring the sound levels up. I do that for any other inputs I want like pcm etc.

Then do
speaker-test -c2


with the number being how many channels you want to test. You should hear static from each channel in turn.

I tried all of your instructions.

Still no sound:-

My sound card is a SB HDA ATI SV ALC888.

I also tried disabling pulseaudio ( changing autospawn = no ) in the /etc.pulse/client.conf rebooted and still no sound.
