Ubuntu

Login drums work, everything else doesn't.

Asked by Dimitri John Ledkov on 2009-02-13

I've been tinkering with PulseAudio. Sound stopped working. I've purged, deleted all conf files and reinstalled pulseaudio.

Now I can here the login drums after/during GDM login. After that I can't get any sound.

in the device choose / volume control all streams/sinks are identified and all streams/sinks do appear (from gnome-sound-pref tests to totem and the like). Streams are not muted and they all have 0 db Gain (100%) but I hear no sound =((((

Speakers are fine since I do hear GDM login sound. Could you please help me? i think this is the best place to ask for pulseaudio support. The usuall ubuntu support channels didn't help so far.

Thanks you in advance. I'm happy to follow up and provide all relevant information and experiment with any suggestions.

have you followed this pulseaudio guide:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=789578

Dimitri John Ledkov (xnox) said : #3

Yes. I have followed everything. Didn't help =( It seems that I can't
get it back to default state exactly the same of as just after
installation. I really am not looking forward to reinstall.

Dimitri John Ledkov (xnox) said : #4

Well I've solved this. I've selected everything pulseaudio related and made sure it all was selected to be "completly removed including configuration files" then I've restarted computer. Than I've reinstalled everything pulseaudio related and it started to work. Thanks for your help ;-)
