I just installed Fedora 19 on my desktop and I've run into the issue of the speakers putting out the audio, but my headphones won't put out any audio (using the headphone jack). Does anyone know of a way to fix this problem? I'm assuming this is something other people will have run into since fresh off the install they don't work.

I cannot thank you enough on that. The headphones did work on the speaker jack, so I went into my desktop and checked and it has 2 separate plugs for the Front Panel jacks, and I was using the wrong one. Again, thank you for your help sideburns.

I ran across this same issue, recently. It turned out that the headphone jack was bad. Try putting the headphones on the speaker jack just to make sure this isn't what's wrong.
