      Hello I just installed antiX 19.2 64 Base and I have no sound.
      In the “Sound Card Chooser” app I only can select “Generic:HDA-Intel-HD-Audio Generic”
      and “Generic_1:HDA-Intel-HD-Audio Generic”
      If I choose one the test fails because cannot connect to the device.
      I guess I have to install a sound card driver but I don’t know how.
      In Mx Linux I have sound.
      Thank you!..

        This may be a short and easy solution or may take a bit more effort to find the problem.

        Make sure audio fails in all programs and not only in your browser. Use the Speaker test (Speaker Test in App Select or Control Centre > Hardware > Test Sound). Do it for both card devices. If Audio Test works on one specific device, it should work on Firefox-ESR. If you are using Firefox (the newest, not ESR) or other new browsers that don’t work out of the box with ALSA, then it is normal (you need to install apulse and launch the specific browser with apulse firefox)

        If your audio problem is system wide, then we will explore different solutions.

        You have confirmed it works on MX Linux in the same computer. This may be because of:
        a) Using 4.19 kernel. Maybe a better working driver is available in a newer kernel. We will have this in mind.
        b) pulseaudio instead of ALSA. MX Linux uses pulseaudio to manage audio in your system, so maybe you will not find the same problem using pulseaudio.

        Before going in and installing stuff, let us figure out if we can solve this in the current working system. You can use the “Speaker Test” program or an audio file after every step. Once you have sound working, you can stop there and rejoice with your working sound.

        0. You will need a bit more info on your sound devices and cards. Check in terminal:
        aplay -l
        Thought your inxi tells us

        `Audio:
        Device-1: AMD BeaverCreek HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6500D and 6400G-6600G
        series]
        driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus ID: 00:01.1 chip ID: 1002:1714
        Device-2: AMD FCH Azalia vendor: Biostar Microtech Intl Corp
        driver: snd_hda_intel v: kernel bus ID: 00:14.2 chip ID: 1022:780d
        Sound Server: ALSA v: k4.9.212-antix.1-amd64-smp`

        It will be useful to know their real card/device numbers in case we need to adjust them manually.
        You will need to answer these questions:
        Are you using HDMI as sound output? Then you need to use Sound Card 0 (or whatever number is given above). If you are not, then you need to use Sound Card X (you will have to choose from the list). Keep this information handy in case you need to edit /etc/asound.conf in the future.

        1. Making sure your audio is not muted.
        Go to Control Centre > Hardware > Adjust Mixer
        Make sure non of the options are muted (you should see a MM instead of 00 under any of the bars if it is muted. If it is muted, hit M key to unmute).

        2. Restore ALSA configuration and rescan the soundcards.
        alsactl nrestore
        Sometimes the problems can easily be solved by restoring the ALSA configuration and rescanning the soundcards.
        Then go back to the

        3. Test with XMMS to check if it is related to the Alsa card chooser program or the driver (you will need a song or any audio file for testing the audio on XMMS). Open XMMS, right-click anywhere, go to Options > Preferences. There, at the bottom of the new window, you should see “ALSA 1.2.11 output plugin” for Output Plugin. Hit configure and select the correct audio device. Remember what you saw in step 0, as you will have to select the correct audio device based on what you are using (after selecting, check the value for hw:X,Y where X is the card and Y is the audio device, comparing to what you saw in aplay -l output). Hit OK and test the audio by playing something with XMMS.

        3.1. If XMMS had audio playing correctly, manually set the audio device for ALSA in /etc/asound.conf
        Open the asound.conf file with your preferred text editor with root privileges. Example with geany:
        sudo geany /etc/asound.conf
        Knowing the card and device that worked on XMMS, edit these lines:

        # ***** Defaults *******************************************************
        # Audio card/chip and device to use and control
        # In most cases these settings should remain commented (#)
        # When commented, card and device 0 are usually automatically selected
        # When uncommented, the item corresponding to the number is selected
        #defaults.pcm.card 0
        #defaults.pcm.device 0
        #defaults.ctl.card 0

        Uncommenting the default.* lines and changing the values to the correct card and device values that worked on XMMS. For example, hw:1,2 would mean Card 1 Device 2. the result would be:

        # Audio card/chip and device to use and control
        # In most cases these settings should remain commented (#)
        # When commented, card and device 0 are usually automatically selected
        # When uncommented, the item corresponding to the number is selected
        defaults.pcm.card 1
        defaults.pcm.device 2
        defaults.ctl.card 1

        Save the file.
        A reboot may be in order. This should solve the problems if you got audio to work on XMMS, now it should work on all the system. If it doesn’t, restore /etc/asound.conf to default values.

        4. If nothing above worked, maybe you need to update the kernel. There are many ways to do so (antiX package installer, synaptic, cli-aptiX). Install the latest 4.19 kernel and reboot. Try again to select the correct device and test your audio.

        5. If no matter what you have tried you cannot get audio to work with ALSA, you may want to test pulseaudio, as you know it works with MX Linux. I have published the steps before.

        Getting pulseaudio in your system:

        1. Installing pulseaudio:
        Open a terminal and execute
        sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol

        2. Make pulseaudio launch on startup
        Edit startuo file
        geany ~/.desktop-session/startup
        Add a line that launches pulseaudio

        #launch pulseaudio Daemon on startup
        pulseaudio -D &

        Save and exit

        3. Making volume-icon use pulseaudio (and manage volume and properties)
        right-click the volume icon in your systray and click on Preferences.
        Have External mixer execute pavucontrol. It originally says:
        External mixer desktop-defaults-run -t alsamixer
        Replace it with:
        External mixer pavucontrol

        Reboot your system.

        Now you can use pavucontrol to select the audio output device and test if audio is working.

        If I forgot something, hopefully I can come back and give you more info.

            I’m currently having the same issue as described above, with my Asus tuffbook gaming laptop, antix21

            Will try this fix posted above for pulse audio, as I need the pulse GUI to switch from HDMI or internal Speaker’s

              Dear to-the-mon

              I too have this problem since the IceWM 3.0.1 update. I have no sound with pulseaudio which worked fine with antiX 21.
              I have followed the explanations given by Xecure but it doesn’t work.
              Did you find a solution?

              Best regards,
              Wallon

                Has anyone opened control panel and use the test sound button yet?

                Usually when I lose sound. That is my 1st check stop.

                Then next step I might try is rfkill commands.

                harry@biker:~
                $       rfkill list all
                0: dell-wifi: Wireless LAN
                	Soft blocked: no
                	Hard blocked: no
                1: phy0: Wireless LAN

                	Soft blocked: no
                	Hard blocked: no
                

                Then if using pulse audio. Instead of alsa. I open Pulse audio settings and make sure my settings are on point.

                That is how I go about trouble shooting sound. Good luck.
