Souncard detection + gutenprint foomatic install

Hello everyone!

I recently installed FC 6. Initially it would detect my soundcard and play music but now there is a red circle with a white cross made on the speaker icon and when I click on it, I get the message that it can't detect the soundcard and plus it say Gstreamer pluging not installed.

Also it asked me to install gutenprint foomatic to install my printer.

How do I fix these 2 problems ?

Thank you,

If you have internet connection, you could issue command from terminal:

yum install gstreamer-plugin


yum install gstreamer-plugin-good

Not sure what is the difference, also, to see a list of available packages. Click on main menu/system/Add\Remove Software, wait as it checks for packages on-line and then click on the "list" tab to see everything available. The ones with check marks are installed, to install something using this feature, add a check mark next to what you want to install and hit apply, to remove, remove the check mark and hit apply. Both the command line and GUI are yum and will take care of dependencies.

Same for gutenprint foomatic.

PS: For the best results in help with Fedora, start your thread in Fedora forum under Distributions specific section.
