Raspberry Pi sound





Finally decided to do something with my Raspberry Pi.  Made a desktop to put it the den. Normally I use a composite monitor, but I decided to use a VGA monitor with an HDMI to VGA adapter. Unfortunately the adapter did not support sound, so I had to use the standard analog audio adapter.

Well I hooked everything up and everything was working but the sound. Hmmm. The sound worked before. Did a bit of research and found I had to use a utility to change the default sound output.

$ sudo raspi-config

 The you want to choose the audio option, then


And then lastly choose the output device desired.


Wow, the sound worked again. By the way I used xrdp to remote into the rpi to make screen capture easier.
