My sound recorder doesn’t record on my Peppermint laptop anymore guys. I don’t know why- not changed any settings.
Which sound recorder ?
It comes under sound and video and is just called sound recorder.
To give you an idea of what I’m trying to do Mark- there is a piece of music on an online radio and I’m trying to record it to send to someone who might know what it is. Usually sound recorder will record it and also record sounds in my room ( e.g me playing the piano). I just tried audacity and that’s not doing either also. Strange.
Just a thought, and I may be wrong here. Do you have pulse audio volume control installed. Usually it`s not needed but occasionally I need it.
I think so.
Yes, I have got pulse and sound recorder is still not working- it worked fine before.
If you open Pulse Audio, choose input device and go down to show: Monitors. That usually works for me.

Received loud and clear Mark. Won`t happen again, apologies.
No need to apologise my friend, but I do have to look after the servers space … just part of the job
I’ve done that, thanks. Will test it later…
Nope- neither Audacity or Sound recorder are recording- what am I to do!
OK, (with an active internet connection) can you run this command:
cd ~ && wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh --upload
you should then be presented with a bunch of output that ends with something similar to this:-

That output suggests you have “Capture” volumes set to 0 (off)
Open a terminal and run:
Now hit F4 to go to the capture controls
What is “Capture” set to ?
No, I mean what are the volumes set to for “Capture” ?
then hit F4
then take a screenshot, host it online somehere, and post a link to the image … so I can have a look
Also, isn’t Peppermint 3 out of support now?
Peppermint 3 is supported upstream till 2017 (as it’s based on Ubuntu 12.04) … there’s nothing in the Peppermint specific repo that’s likely to need any support from us, just some artwork, ice, and system configs.
