I am having no sound coming from my headphone jack. I have tried the following:
1 Turning levels up in alsamixer. The headphones and capture can't be turned up
2 The solutions here (the second solution caused mint to become unbootable) http://itsfoss.com/fix-sound-ubuntu-1304-quick-tip/
3 Checking all output sources. None are muted and none put out sound for my headphones.
4 Multiple headphones
5 Playing with pavucontrol
Relevant portion of lspci -v output:
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fba (rev a1)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 854d
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
Memory at f7080000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel
The headphone jack goes straight into my H97 Anniversary Asus motherboard. If it's a driver thing, then that won't be good because before now I've only ever used mac and so I've never really had to deal with drivers.
My appreciation goes to anyone who helps!
