no sound in Jessie with r14 from

Last Debian I installed on any of my own systems was Etch, until Friday, when
I did a network minimal, then added TDE. In a broad sense, only one thing
bothers me at this point, no sound. In openSUSE we have YaST2 for such things
as sound configuration, but in Jessie/TDE I haven't found anything that
helps. Trying to use Synaptic to figure it out isn't working, because its
scroller is worthless - it has no buttons to scroll only a line at atime, and
the scrollbar hopelessly overshoots trying to drag or click. TCC's Sound &
Multimedia isn't producing any sound or any clues as to why not. SMplayer
plays video but without sound. Is there some TDE tool not yet installed that
can configure sound, or do I need some as yet undiscovered Debian tool to
make sound work? didn't seem to help at all. :-(
