I cannot find sound controls on Zorin.

I just downloaded zorin. I cannot find the sound control, nor do I hear any sound.

I tried to use the search option on this forum but had trouble finding the thread I was looking for.

Thanks in advance

Update: Ok, i got the volume control to show up on the panel, down next to the clock. Everything is turned all the way up, when i pull up pulse audio i can see the sound meter fluctuating while i play a video, but there is no sound coming out of the speakers.

How do i get sound?

Thanks again

Is the correct sound output connected to the speakers?
You can set the output volume using alsamixer on console.

Click on that icon on the panel and at the bottom it should say "sound settings", click that and you should get the control panel for pulse audio. If you can't do that, look in your menu (I use Xubuntu and Pulse audio is under "multimedia" category (if zorin has a search in the menu, you can try that too). That will also give you the main settings (make sure mute is not on).
