Sound from both headphones and speakers

I did the steps in the first answer there, and when I rebooted there was no sound at all. In the settings it says dummy output. What Shall I do now ?! I do not want to follow anymore steps that will make the problem even worse. sudo apt-get install aptitude

sudo aptitude --purge reinstall linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils linux-image-`uname -r` linux-ubuntu-modules-`uname -r` libasound2

I ran those two commands and I got my sound back. But the problem of the headphones not muting the rear speakers still exists!!! Can anyone help me with that?

Running Ubuntu 12.04

I copied your modification in the question because the user used a answer instead edit their question. –  revnoise Mar 15 '13 at 18:38
    
@revnoise: the commands indeed are an answer to the question, the issue with non-muting headphones however is a different question, which would then be a dupe to the question linked above. –  Takkat Mar 15 '13 at 18:44
