I just switched from windows to fedora 19 as my distro. It's running fine but I am having issues with my sound card i.e i am unable to hear anything. I Googled for a fix or procedure on how to resolve this issue, and tried many things that people suggested but it didn't get the work done.
I am using ES1978 Maestro 2E as my sound card, since my built in intel soundcard is broken. This sound card worked perfectly in windows.
What I have tried so far..
Checked my sound setting whether I have the correct output device selected or not it was correct one.
opened up terminal and used alsa utils alsamixer to check whether the sound card has been detected and initialized or not, the sound card was detected but it was off so i toggled it on. but i am not able to adjust the slider on the playback controls using the arrow keys.
And lastly i used amixer to set the values manually. I set the values for capture source and capture volume.
But None of these worked for me.
super user didnt allow me to upload images directly because my rep is lower that 10 so i have pasted the links for the screenshots.
