New issue...I uninstalled Pulse Audio and now have no sound. Will reinstall.
some other threads I installed Pulse Audio
Just a thought - have you checked in
PCC (Configure Your Computer) > Hardware >> Sound Configuration
to check that PulseAudio is enabled; plus have you rebooted after installing PulseAudio ?
Yes, after installing PA I went to Sound Configuration and enabled it then immediately rebooted. Went back into Sound Config to make sure it was still checked which it was.
IIRC, on the later kernels, plugging in a headset in my PC invokes an 'auto-sense' which switches the sound from speakers to headset.
connection failed: connection refused
PA is not functioning.
Maybe this would help after ensuring it is enabled and the PC rebooted first
Just plugging in headphones always worked for me too...it's just with this new laptop and new install.
Went to the link you provided and tried pulseaudio --use-pid-file=false
and got "Daemon startup without any loaded modules, refusing to work."
Replacing the /etc/pulse/default.pa file and the other was set correctly got PA working but I still have NO sound whatsoever anymore.
