    Hi,

    I've installed Mint kDE 13 and I can see evidence of audio file being played I can't hear anything? Alsamixer doesnt seem to be muted?

    Any comments please.

    First i would say is make sure your alsa or pulseaudio daemon is enabled.
    Then your sound device might be newer than the current version of alsa installed.
