asound.conf fix for no sound in flash
Following a post at Ubuntu Forums I’ve managed to fix my flash sound (which has been broken for about 3 months). The bit that did it in the end was creating an /etc/asound.conf file (as root) with the following content.
Note that I have an ES1370 soundcard like the author of the original post. YMMV.
Woohoo! Looks like it’s fixed and I can now watch YouTube vids on my old Athlon 1.1GHz HP Pavilion 7880 (UK) computer with sound. Thanks to themeone.
