Sound in rhythmbox
Why does sound work in lxmusic but not rhythmbox? Can sound be fixed for rhythmbox?
I don't know. You can check if sound is muted in alsamixer, as I explained in the Installation Instructions.
Alsamixer is installed, and the volume control in lxmusic controls the 'PCM' level of Alsamixer, but the volume control in Rhythmbox does not seem to have any effect on any of the channels in Alsamixer. I was particularly interested in downloading and listening to podcasts: is there perhaps another audio application that I could try to install? (I have been playing a radio station in Rhythmbox - I'll import a music CD and see if that makes a difference).
