[SOLVED] No Sound After Installing KDE

After installing KDE I have no sound.

Results of commands

lspci | grep Audio

gives

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation NM10/ICH7 Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01)

and

aplay -l

gives

aplay: device_list:256: no soundcards found...

Can someone help?

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound After Installing KDE

First I would run "lsmod" to check if the snd kernel modules are loaded…

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound After Installing KDE

By the way, I'm also having audio issues with KDE 4.9.3 now. I can play sound though, it's the mixer that's broken.

P.S. I could fix my issue in the KMix preferences. (The wrong audio interface had been selected since the upgrade.)

Do you think on Phonon preferences. If is, I got nothing to select.

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound After Installing KDE

And does "dmsg|grep snd" show the driver recognizing the hardware?

# dmesg|grep snd
[    6.650545] snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: >irq 47 for MSI/MSI-X
[    6.891285] snd_hda_intel 0000:01:00.1: >irq 48 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 7218.101476] snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: >irq 47 for MSI/MSI-X
[ 7218.101717] snd_hda_intel 0000:01:00.1: >irq 48 for MSI/MSI-X

In your case, the device is there, the driver too, but somehow they don't seem to communicate with each other, to state the glaringly obvious. smile

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound After Installing KDE

I have read this post - https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 5#p1066395 - and I did this

gpasswd -a username audio

That was a problem and I got sound!

Thanks!

EDIT:
BTW, I have had GNOME on my system and I did install KDE and I don't know how I kicked of from audio group.

Re: [SOLVED] No Sound After Installing KDE

Aha, the audio group strikes again. I guess that should go into the Wiki then as the first thing to check for.
