Maybe let sgfxi handle it?

I was just going to suggest that. That is the only tool I use when installing Nvidia. The thing handles everything at once.

What do you have under the configuration tab.  If you don't have HDMI there you may have some issues with the driver.

I use pavucontrol and pulseaudio.  With pavucontrol I switch between all outputs and inputs on the fly. On pavucontrol: Configuration > Ouput devices > Playback

How are you installing plex? I used to install it by downloading the Ubuntu/Debian .DEB file.

Is anybody successfully using bluetooth under Devuan?  I have tried all I know but I can’t find devices and devices can’t find the computer.

If someone out there running Devuan is using bluetooth, I will keep trying.

Thank you,

PRafael, the solution is actually https://devuan.org/os/packages.  At least it was easier and straight forward IMO.

While we are here, are there non-free repos and such or these repos covered everything?

I have tried over the years to try and play videos on Epiphany unfortunately I never succeeded.  Now on Luakit, youtube videos did not work at first but now smooth sailing but apple trailers are still a no no. 

Is there some kind of work around?  I read that it is possible to have an external application open up and play a video while on luakit.

Alsamixer did it. Alsamixer showed headphones sliders white out, I turned them gray and pushed sliders up.

Thank you all for your replies.

Hi

Try with alsamixer on a terminal. Pulseaudio is not enabled by default on Devuan and is not really needed. You can use either alsamixer or in your gui add an alsamixer (for instance volumeicon-alsa), or enable pulseaudio by doing the following: Pulseaudio


- If you have no sound, make sure the following line in
   /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf is commented as
   shown here:


   #autospawn=no

Have a nice day

I dont know about pavucontrol because I dont use pulseaudio, but I could try to use alsamixer to see the level of headphones.

I will try alsamixer.

I can hear sound from speakers.  When I insert headphones sound to speakers stops however, no sound to headphones.  When I load pavucontrol, I get "Establishing connection to pulseaudio. Please wait..."

This laptop has a Realtek ALC292 sound card.  Hopefully someone can assist me.  I wonder if there is some kind of sound driver I need.

I don't remember ever having this issue while running an installation.  Anybody had any idea why I can't get pass this issue?  See shot.
Secure boot is disabled and I am using legacy BIOS.  There is only one drive in the box and no dual boot.

Thank you,

I hope someone here can help with this one.  I am fairly new to mc.  I can't seem to be able to open files with proper programs.  How do you assign default programs to open files in mc?

i.e. videos, texts, and so on...I have searched the web but nothing.

Cheers.
