      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

  1. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Friends, no luck so far and I'm getting disheartened. The only problem in four or five years which this forum has not helped me solve.
  2. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Thank you, John. [edit] Tried init 3. No improvement. I STILL DO NOT KNOW if I am doing the right things.
  3. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Not knowing how to "do an init3", I just typed that in as root: with the response "not recognised".
  4. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    When I disable Pulse Audio, I do not get even a crackle from the speakers on start-up. Running alsaconf brings this at the end: "Sound is being used by pid 19419". Does this tell us anything? I have now used Linux for five years. Is it a sign of Progress that only MDV 2009 and MDV 2010 have given me trouble with sound?
  5. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    I've tried that, Scarecrow. Didn't bring up the audio. Maybe this was because I didn't configure alsa. I don't know how to do that.
  6. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    On 2010, the same problem. In 2009 I had managed to get sound to work. Now that I have moved "up" to 2010, I am again without sound. There is a crackle from the speakers on booting up, but no welcome fanfare.
  7. Kylix problem on 2010 [solved]

    It was there, Greg. I always copy it when I install Everest. Just checked, and both programs are now running. Maybe it was just a matter of rebooting. Thank you.
  8. Kylix problem on 2010 [solved]

    Thanks. Have that already, installed because xzgv called for libjpeg.
  9. Kylix problem on 2010 [solved]

    I have just moved to 2010. Two programs, TreePad and Everest Dictionary, have stopped working. At the command prompt I get the error "undefined symbol: initPAnsiStrings". This has something to do with Kylix, it seems.
  10. can't load 2010 install dvd [solved]

    Eminently sensible, John. How are you, young friend?
  11. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Now I'm really confused, scarecrow. Will switching to a stock Firefox solve my Thunderbird problem? Firefox runs fine with PA, it's Thunderbird that doesn't run.
  12. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Scarecrow, I heard the shot when you let PulseAudio have it in the head. Don't hide, please. Removing PA in the ordinary way is not an option: the package manager threatens to remove 173 packages in all, which probably wouldn't leave the computer good even for Pong.
  13. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Silly of me to look everywhere but in the right place. I now have sound and video in VLC and MPlayer. However, now Thunderbird does not run. Here is what I get when I try to run it from the command line: ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1008:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave /usr/lib/thunderbird-2.0.0.23/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 5538 Segmentation fault /usr/bin/soundwrapper "$prog" ${1+"$@"} [edit] With Pulse Audio enabled in MCC, sound works but Thunderbird does not. When it is disabled, Thunderbird works but there is no sound. I recently installed Linux Mint on a friend's computer. To get things moving it was necessary to remove Pulse Audio completely. Could that be the solution of my problem? If it is, how do I go about it?
  14. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Scarecrow, please see posts 22 and 23. I have a fresh installation of MDV + GNOME. No video. Cannot remember, and cannot find, the place where I specified X11. No audio either, but perhaps I shall set that right.
  15. No audio, no video [a new problem]

    Scarecrow, I have for a long while preferred VLC, but I also have MPlayer and a couple of others. I don't know where to specify the video output. [edit] In MPlayer, xv was specified. Videos began playing as soon as I changed it to X11. Now I must look into the other players. Thank you all for your patience.
