generally those old NVIDIA drivers are supported through the Nouveau Drivers, which are usually installed by default - I believe the last kernel that supported those legacy drivers was the 5.4 series - so no, there are no longer necessary

#2 Re: Desktop and Multimedia » [SOLVED] Firefox no sound. » 2023-11-08 21:12:47

According to here - … o-software - It says

Allow autoplay of media with sound
Firefox may be blocking media with sound from playing automatically. To allow media autoplay, see Allow or block media autoplay in Firefox.

You may need to install the required PulseAudio software
If you see a notification saying “To play audio, you may need to install the required PulseAudio software”, it means that Firefox cannot find or use PulseAudio. The PulseAudio software is required to play any audio from Firefox. Most Linux distributions now come with PulseAudio pre-installed.

Use your system's software package manager and ensure that PulseAudio is correctly installed.

Might want to check if go-mtpfs and jmtpfs are installed

Go-mtpfs is a simple FUSE filesystem for mounting Android devices as
an MTP device.

It will expose all storage areas of a device in the mount, and only
reads file metadata as needed, making it mount quickly. It uses Android
extensions to read/write partial data, so manipulating large files
requires no extra space in /tmp.

After install reboot plug in phone to usb port

Seems you have vaapitest error

VA-API is enabled by default for Intel GPUs - For other GPUs, set media.ffmpeg.vaapi.enabled to true in about:config

Firefox uses PulseAudio for audio playback and capture. If PulseAudio is not installed, Firefox uses ALSA instead. Note that by default, Firefox blocks all media with sound from playing automatically
Select the Privacy & Security panel and go down to the Permissions section
(or enter autoplay in the Find in Settings search box

Your shell should be /usr/bin/ssh check to see if your shell is running from /usr/local/bin/ssh which is a script that does nothing.

Is it related to that free credit scam known as expirion?

If so, wait for someone trustworthy here to say its legit if you have sense.


No it is spelt differently the one you mention is spelt Experion - The Expirion Linux is legitimate and listed on the Waiting List on DistroWatch -
