A few days ago I installed Zorin 16.2 on a Dell Micro Optiplex 5070.
I used this guide because it was my first experience with UEFI and Secure Boot:
Everything went fine except audio. There is only a dummy output for audio available. But I have also read that it is unwise to use Secure Boot in relation with my audioproblems. Rather confusing.
So I followed the Zorin help concerning audioproblems, but nothing helped.
Installing Pavucontrol did show me that there is an audiosignal.
But the signal does not reach any further. 'Sounds' like a driver/hardware problem.
What is a wise to do?
Since a lot of laptop soundboards are integrated with the gpu, would you mind sharing what graphics card you are using? Is your system using a proprietary driver for the video card? Is it the right driver (are all features of the card represented in the nvidia server app, if nvidia...i don't know about Intel or amd vid cards)?
Graphic card is GeForce GT 1030.
I am using S/PDIF Starship/Matisse HD Audio Controller
Was the same with POP-OS
Drivers and software going with (Nvidia application) were downloaded from Nvidia site.
