This has to be a "duh!" question, but I cannot figure it out.

I have a system with an Creative sound card. If I install LXDE, I never hear sound. But if I install Cinnamon or GNOME, I don't hear sound until I go to System Settings -> Sound and select the #2 headphones option.

It seems to me that the solution to my problem is to install the GNOME Sound package on LXDE, but I cannot determine which one that is. I looked on a Cinnamon system for all GNOME packages, but none of them seemed appropriate. Any Suggestions?

The sound package is pulseaudio:

sudo dnf install pulseaudio

You can install a simple controller for pulseaudio without installing the whole gnome or cinnamon control center.

sudo dnf install pavucontrol

If the above controller does not work, and you actually need the sound settings from the GNOME control centre or the Cinnamon control centre then you will find it in these package:

GNOME Control Centre: sudo dnf install control-center

Cinnamon Control Centre: sudo dnf install cinnamon-control-center

Thanks a lot for that answer. I don't think I would ever have found that on my own.
