Question No sound - Debian Squeeze - Total Newbie

OK so I have installed Squeeze 6.0.4 and all seems fine. Except that I do not have sound from my speakers (Logitech Z10 USB). They do work with Linux as I have used Slax (run from) CD where they worked immaculately.

However, not after this installation. I have Googled and received some answers but as a total newbie I don't know how to implement them.

I cannot see how to enter a command line mode from the GUI desktop.

Any help appreciated.

Look for terminal emulator in your desktop menu, under accesories. Failing that you could always go to TTY by pressing key combination alt-ctr-F1 for tty1, alt-ctr-F2 for tty2.. you get the drift. The desktop (X server) is usually on tty7 (alt-ctr-F7).
Let us know if you had any luck following answers you've found.
