Could you please describe it in more detail? I use the GNOME desktop,
and have looked for this switch in the
tool, but I could not find it. And no, I am not the original poster,
I just have the same problem.
I don't use Gnome, so I can't describe the precise steps. I think that
if you right click on the little volume control applet in the top
right-hand corner, it will give you the choice of opening the mixer.
Alternatively, open a terminal window, and run the program "alsamixer".
You'll see a screen with many vertical bars, each representing the
volume of a particular channel or component. Use the right arrow key to
scroll to the analogue/digital output jack. When you come to it, you'll
see that it probably has MM under it. Type the 'M' key on the keyboard
to unmute it, and your sound will work.
