Pulseaudio İs Not Working though sound works

Asked by ak on 2017-09-06

My problem is really interesting.

I've been struggling with this for 5-6 days strait. I have sound working but my pulseaudio is not working

Problems
1)I have nothing in /etc/pulse. directory like "default.pa" config or deamon

2)I have no system sound in the login screen -also no volume indicator exist at login screen-

3)when i write "pulseaudio" to terminal i get

E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup without any loaded modules, refusing to work.

Thank you for your responses.

What is the output of:

wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && chmod +x ./alsa-info.sh && ./alsa-info.sh

Thanks

I found the solution

I removed the pulse-audio alsa and pulse-alsa packages by purge and auto-remove first

then I followed the official troubleshooting procedure

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure

after reboot all were set and problem solved.
