I'm very new to Linux environment. I have installed parrot security on my Acer Aspire E5 573G. I'm not much aware about using "linux as my daily driver" so when I try to run any multimedia file they don't run. I have vlc pre-installed but it won't open. When I try to watch videos on youtube there's no sound. Am I missing some drivers or something? I think all the necessary drivers are installed during the OS installation right? Any Ideas?
start VLC in the terminal and post the output, for audio try starting in
alsamixer and see if the audio output terminal is set to MM, if MM press "M" on your keyboard
