Just noticed in one of your earlier posts you've already visited Thinkwiki.

How frustrating!

I thought of one more thing we can try, this will tell you whether or not you're in the 'audio' group:

Code:
groups hexeta
If 'audio' is not the list, you can add yourself to that group with:

Code:
sudo gpasswd -a hexeta audio

~ $ sh ./alsa-info.sh
sh: Can't open ./alsa-info.sh


What have I done wrong now??
Directory? We just want a plain text file of the script. When you open a terminal, it usually defaults to your home directory, so if you saved it to the Desktop, it makes sense if it doesn't find it. Try as so
Code:
cd ~/Desktop
sh ./alsa-info.sh

No idea what they are!

Adding user hexeta to group audio

That sounds positive!....maybe we have ears at last!
I'll check, and post back!

No, no ears!

That hit the spot!
So much to learn!!!
This looked a bit like my life flashing past, I saw many "Not Found's", suspect it's not good news, here's the link

Your ALSA information is in /tmp/alsa-info.txt.LIYn2ixviE

If it didn't automatically upload to pastebin and give you a link, can you upload it.

Hrm, something went wrong, I think an error when copying the script. Let's try it this way

Open a terminal and do
Code:
wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh
sh ./alsa-info.sh

No, I tried once more as before.
Both the links work for me! I thought I'd cocked up the first attempt myself, thats why I repeated it.
Strange you can't see the file!
I'll do it again the way you have posted.

Has that automatically uploaded it?
It didn't give me a link!

Has it uploaded?
I have found the file that it saved to my temp directory.
should I paste that here??

Something has changed.
I have just gone back to the first time that I achieved "sound".
This is the text response to the command from the Terminal at that time:-
~ $ sudo modprobe snd-cs4236
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.


This is the response now:-
~ $ sudo modprobe snd-cs4236
[sudo] password for hexeta:
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper, it will be ignored in a future release.
sh: /usr/local/sbin/soundcard-on: Permission denied
FATAL: Error running install command for snd_cs4236
