no sound


Hello. I am not getting sound for some reason. I was, but after the last update, it seems to have stopped.

Code:
mark@mark-OptiPlex-755:~$ grep "Codec:" /proc/asound/card*/codec*
Codec: Analog Devices AD1984
Code:
mark@mark-OptiPlex-755:~$ aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
mark@mark-OptiPlex-755:~$ sudo aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
[sudo] password for mark: 
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
Hear nothing whether it's sudo or not. See above.

Seems to recognize the sound card:
Code:
 
mark@mark-OptiPlex-755:~$ sudo aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

mark@mark-OptiPlex-755:~$

k@mark-OptiPlex-755:~$ lspci -v | grep -A7 -i "audio"

I'm using xfce and have the audio mixer plugin within the panel. Even though it says it's not mute, when I change the volume it does show a graph with a red ex (see attachment). So, something somewhere seems off.

Install the GNOME ALSA Mixer from Ubuntu's Software center. It provides a bit more information than Ubuntu's sound settings.
When I have (occasionally) lost sound as a result of a Ubuntu upgrade I have been able to "fix" it through the GNOME ALSA Mixer.
Please be aware that my "fixing" has been somewhat haphazard, pressing various options until one worked.

Thanks Steve. I did fix this by simply logging out and logging into the Unity default desktop, which showed that my sound was in fact muted. The audio mixer of xfce didn't show that and thus didn't give the option to undo the muting, whereas the mixer in the Unity desktop did. I likely should try to get used to the default desktop of Ubuntu, but I just haven't been able to. So, I added xfce, but it's a bit buggy.
