How do you turn the sound off and on remotely on an ubuntu/linux system ? Assuming you are using teh ALSA driver, which most are, you can ssh over and run the following command
% amixer set Master mute % amixer set Master unmute
Or you can simply run
% amixer set Master toggle
Either way works the same. Now the game is quiet and nobody knows how it happened except me 🙂 hahahahaha.
