With zero experience of Linux, I installed Ubuntu on an old laptop and then Rosegarden. However, I've never been able to get any sound to be produced by the software - not even a metronome. I've Googled it for hours on end but to no avail. I know there are various external packages needed ("Jack"?) and I've followed all of the suggestions I've found everywhere.

Can anyone suggest some obvious reasons why a fresh install of Rosegarden would have this problem - and how can I fix it?

If you can point me to a decent tutorial I'm happy to do the necessary reading. I found the Rosegarden tutorials less than helpful in this area.

Would a reinstall do it? Did I select the wrong option at Installation and need to start again? If so, how do I uninstall and reinstall?

For info, the laptop is an HP Probook but about 7 years old, quite powerful but with, I assume, a standard sound card. It has no problem producing sound from other sources like web pages and Youtube.

Any help would be most appreciated.
