Default no sound over laptop speakers in KDE
In KDE I don't have any sound from the speakers of my Lenovo B560 laptop (PCBSD 9.1 x64). Headphones work though and I don't have this problem with Gnome or LXDE. And sound worked under PCBSD 9.1-RC2 and RC3.

I removed KDE with LXDE's System Manager, then rebooted the computer and installed the whole KDE package again. But still no sound...

BTW why are all my KDE settings still there (desktop background, dolphin settings etc.) when having KDE completely removed/reinstalled?

OK, this is embarrassing... it was so easy! Sorry!

This is what I did:

Code:
[delipu@pcbsd-5998] ~% mixer
Mixer vol      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer speaker  is currently set to 100:100
Mixer mic      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer mix      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer rec      is currently set to   0:0
Mixer igain    is currently set to   0:0
Mixer ogain    is currently set to   0:0
Recording source: mic
[delipu@pcbsd-5998] ~% mixer ogain 100
Setting the mixer ogain from 0:0 to 100:100.
In my defense I have to say that having checked all settings available through the GUI and sound working under Gnome and LXDE I didn't think of looking here at first.

As you see, the first three settings 'vol', 'pcm' and 'speaker' were on 100% already and I had no sound at all from the speakers. I don't really understand what I did, either. The 'ogain' setting was just the last one to check...

Maybe this still helps someone.

Regarding the kept settings, removing KDE won't touch the hidden .kde* stuff in your home directory.

Thanks, that explains the kde settings.

And since the 'ogain' setting got me my sound back, this post could be marked as solved. Can I look up these settings somewhere? I'd like to know what 'igain', 'ogain' and 'mix' do.
