I am unsure what you mean by this ....
Simple, if others can a certain thing "ours" will find the way as well in time.
but .... as mentioned previously you need to set the default sound to the analogue output if you are not using the digital/HDMI output.
It is easy do if you have PulseAudio properly installed and enabled.
There are other methods also, which are the subject of other help posts/threads.[/i]ter reboot no trace as usual at the volume control/mixer.
Well it wasn't easy here, spend a week on it. Yes there was a problem with pulse. Installed it, activated it, rebooted (this times 10 or so) but .... after reboots there was no trace of pulse at volume control or mixer. Had to give up. It was impossible to activate analoque
Maybe setting the output priority in KDE CC - Multimedia - Phonon for ALL devices would be sufficient.
Well I think I tried about all. Many were looking with me and honestly no solution came by in a week. The waiting is on.
14 years ago I was many times confronted with hardware problems and drivers. It was part of my hobby. But I grow older and I don't mind fighting for a day or so but then it must be over. I was lucky to choose often the right distro with PCLinuxOS as champ. But this time it wasn't ready for the job I feel.
I got other boxes running PCLinuxOS and keep anargus eyes on developments re drivers/kernels etc. When the time is right PCLinuxOS will return on this laptop. Now I need to use it being fully operational, hence my move.
