No sound in master profile, works within guest login

Asked by Michael Grass on 2011-11-03

I've recently noticed that I have no sound within my user profile. When logging in as a guest account, audio works fine. Is there a way to copy sound settings (etc) from one account to another? I'm a bit of a linux noob, so please break down assistance to the lowest common denominator. Thanks in advance for the assist!

Try:

killall pulseaudio; rm -r ~/.pulse; rm ~/.pulse-cookie

Thanks Andrew. I did a sudo su and ran your command, rebooted, and still no audio.

On a whim I just did a: sudo alsa force-reload

This seems to have fixed the issue. I appreciate you taking the time to help. Thank you.
