I have recently installed the Realtek High Definition Audio Driver package using the Terminal.
Before installing the software the sound was working fine but my sound sytem is 5.1 Creative. Out five speakers only two speakers were working. Earlier when I am using windows I needed to install the realtek audio driver in order the 5 speakers to work.
I followed the instructions given in the installation file during installation. The last step of the instructions states that the machine shall be rebooted to finish the installation. After, rebooting ALSA mixer control is to be edited (which are by default set to mute).
My problem is I cannot find that ALSA mixer in computer.
When I type alsamixer in terminal I am getting the following message :
Cannot open mixer: No such file or directory
I can confirm I have done
sudo apt-get install alsa-utils and alsamixer is installed.
Please suggest how can I rectify this problem.
Following is my Audio Device
Audio device: Intel Corporation N10/ICH 7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)
and Regarding the Instructions : Following are the Instructions given by the software provider i.e., Realtek
- unzip source code tar xfvj alsa-driver-1.0.xx.tar.bz2
- Complied source code a. cd alsa-driver-1.0.xx b. ./configure --with-cards=hda-intel c. make d. make install
- reboot your machine
- Use the alsamixer the disable mute (All audio line default is mute) Must to compile and to install the ALSA library and utility. (Use automatic install is already install) excute alsamixer
I have followed all the instructions upto Step 3 but I was unable to do the Step 4.
I am using Ubuntu 11.10 version.
Thanks in advance.
