    Does anybody know how to get sound working on a debian derivate?

    The OS are all working fine, I have sound on windows, no complaints.
    But on my debian derivate I only have sound when plugging in headphones into the 3.5 mm jack. I do not have sound from the standard speakers. Output is selected built-in sound.

    I already installed alsamixer but no sound. I can create sound with speaker-test and I see the green bar indicating sound is played but I only hear it on headphones. In Windows I have normal sound.

    Does anybody know a solution?

    CF-53, 240GB SSD, 8 GB RAM, debian derivate with MATE desktop.

    posting a thread, already found a solution:

    In windows sound was muted. I unmuted it and played sound.
    Then I rebooted to debian, suddenly sound was there, but before it was certainly not muted.

    Why was the unmuting in windows carried over to debian?

    As far as I can remember we never found a answer to that when we discovered that before. I know I did that too myself before with XP / Ubuntu 10.10 on my CF-29 Mk3.

    I think I got around that by issuing a few amixer commands. If that ever becomes an issue again, I'll look it up.

    Thanks,

    I think the easiest way is to unmute in Windows and not forget...
