No Sound on Fresh Install

I’ve enabled the correct audio device in pulse, it also shows the correct name of the sound card but there’s no sound to be heard.

It’s a Creative X-fi Titanium, any tips?

Many thanks

Is pavucontrol installed? Audio devices (like mine) can be muted by default. Check with that first. Sometimes pulseaudio can assign the wrong profile, you can check that as well with pavucontrol.


Welcome to the forum. Enjoy the distro.

I’m an absolute idiot, the card was just muted.
Thanks a bunch!
