I am a new eOS user and I have never used linux before.
My issue is that my speakers don't work (headphones do). I use MSI A88XM-E35 V2 motherboard with Chipset integrated by Realtek® ALC887 and my speakers are Genius SW-2.1 385.
On Windows, I had installed Realtek HD audio drivers from motherboard manufacturer site and when I first plugged those speakers, it didn't work. The 3.5mm jack comes from subwoofer, but when the software auto sellected subwoofer output type, there was no sound. I had to sellect "Front speaker out" to make it work.
Now, in eOS,the speakers don't work. I decided to install Realtek drivers on linux too. I also like sound equalization so I want to do so even if there was another solution to make those speakers work.
Sooo I downloaded this
/home/user/Downloads/Rt-Linux-HDaudio-5.18 (I can't hyperlink couse it was from official Realtek web and the link was somehow limited - only i was able to use it). It seems like it's made for Ubuntu and it's based on ALSA drivers. They also included pdf installation guide and that's where i got stuck.
Config compile environment
This will check your system which compile capabilities is.
If you want to compile the HDA driver part only, please follow belowing.
./configure command manifestly cannot be executed.
Anyway, I would appreciate any help/tip very much even if it wouldn't solve the driver installation issue. If you know how to make my speakers work please help I will be very happy and thankful.
