I just did a fresh install on my Main PC to get more familiar with the OS and ran into a stump. After KDE Loads a message that comes up states my sound card has been removed and the OS wishes to know if i want to forget about them. I tell it no, because i haven't removed anything, and check the PCC and they are there. When i select it as the default card, and test it, I get no sound.
Using the CLI to check Alsamixer to make sure its not muted i get this...
ALSA lib pulse.c:229:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused
cannot open mixer: Connection refused
Also noted, I have 2 selections of my Sound Card. One is grayed, the other isn't. The driver for it list's as a INTEL, HDA driver (snd_hda_intel [ALSA]. I've also tried Enabling/Disabling PulseAudio with no luck.
Anything I'm missing?
