Ubuntu 15.04 vivid, fresh install. What is default sound system?


Hi,

Although I've been using linux several years back. I am not a fast learner so here goes a question I should understand long ago.

I have installed fresh Ubuntu 15.04 netinstall.

After that install xorg and windows manager.
Sound was working.
Then I wanted to check the mixer and I used to alsamixer, and strange the app was not there.
I have tried all alsa* binaries but none of them was installed.

How can I findout what sound system is running?

Thanks

Hi...

Check out this page. Also, this page may be of help if you want to switch to alsa, although you may need to install a few packages.

Regards...

If you have made a minimal netinstall then no sound system is installed. If you want to use alsa you will have to install it first.

I have not made an Ubuntu install for a long time, but my guess is that it install the Alsa libraries (package alsa-base), but not the tools (packages alsa-utils, alsamixer, ...).
