I recently wiped my entire harddrive and switched from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 12.10 (32b - Used to have everything 64, but it said 32 was recomended?). It seems that everything BUT my sound is working as intended. As I'm pretty new to Ubuntu and have only had very minimal experience in Linux OS', what are my options?
sudo aplay -l
to see if it recognized my sound card? And I got a TON of output listing something like 255 subdevices per device is found i'm guessing..
Not sure if that's what was suppose to happen or not.
Nothing is muted, I made sure of that by looking around on the web for help topics.
The thing is, it plays sound through my monitor speakers (HDMI) just fine, but not through my main speakers. So i'm thinking it has to be with my sound card.
Using 'pacmd list' i get a long list of stuff, but only copied some of it; Not sure if it will be useful or not.
