 My PC has just ordinary stereo speakers plugged in. basically I uninstalled alsa and then installed pulseaudio following commands on ubuntu forum.   Inserted a cd and this notice appeared Could not find album on Music Brainz.   I assume this is some sort of peer sharing but it sort of threw me as its unusual for linux.  However in the forums it instructed sudo apt-get picard. Anyway being stupid I used the command and it d/l the packages  (see attached)   and I dont know what to do with it now


And still no sound sound:       settings  show output blank  input shows line in built in audio. 

  Please help  Thanks
