I just installed Ubuntu Server 12.10. I am using openbox and startx for my gui session. I decided not to post in the Ubuntu forum because I felt this issue might be relevant to other distros as well, especially Debian based ones.
flashplugin-installer so I could watch youtube videos. The videos seem like the work fine, however, I seem to be without sound.
I also got
alsa-utils but when I run
alsamixer I get:
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory
when I try to run
volumeicon I get
volumeicon: alsa_backend.c:86: asound_get_volume: Assertion `m_elem != ((void *))' failed.
I don't mind using something other than alsa if I need to. I would just like to know what packages I need to install to be able to get sound on youtube videos.
