Trying to fix sound in MEPIS 12 KDE -- SOLVED

My computer's sound stopped working today. I had done #apt-get update && apt-get upgrade last night. I think the lack of sound is the result of some library changes made by APT. When trying to play video on the web, I noticed this bar atop my browser viewport "To play audio, you may need to install ...

I tried that Stevo, moving it to my home folder as you suggested, but it didn't work.

Removing KDE application viewport at startup

What can I do to prevent kgpg from starting up automatically at login? The viewport always pops up right after I login, and I have to close it manually. Still there next time I log in. Right now there is nothing in ~/.kde/Autostart/.

Re: Subdirectory jumper

I just use the BASH alias command. $ pcb jon@mepis1:~/ee/pcb$ alias | grep pcb alias pcb='cd ~/ee/pcb' jon@mepis1:~/ee/pcb$ cd jon@mepis1:~$ and Dolphin and find when I can't remember where I put a file. I always rename files with spaces in their names to replace_spaces_with_underscore_characters.

Re: where do YOU learn about additional apps/software?

When searching for an application to crop digital photograph files, for example, I go to my favorite web search engine (startpage.com), and type "linux program to crop photos". That usually gives me plenty to read about on the web what people like, don't like, and so on. When I find a particular app...

Re: Tips and Tricks

To get a strong password, I use pwgen (from the Debian repositories).

Code: Select all

 pwgen -sy 16
or

Code: Select all

pwgen -s 16
You can evaluate it (or one very similar to it) here:

Re: I broke APT in MEPIS 12.

I had tried that last night, dolphin_oracle, but it did not reenable apt-get.
v3g4n, I just did the two commands you suggested, but without the -rf on rm.
It worked! I was able to just now run #apt-get update && apt-get upgrade to completion successfully.
Thank you!
