Re: No Sound - Puzzle - Losing Ground
It may help if you do rm -fr .config/pulseaudio in your user directory
and also in your root directory then reboot your system. This operation
should force pulseaudio into a known state which for it will be unknown
and pulseaudio would then have to go and do device detection with a
clean slate (no preconcieved notions) of what's on your system. At this
point you may find it useful to subscribe to
email@example.com if this operation gets you no help.
One thing to try before erasing pulseaudio configuration from your
system's accounts is running the speakertest command in all accounts
then repeat the speakertest once pulseaudio command starts up after you
reboot or maybe better yet power down then restart your system. For my
equipment, pulseaudio has to be working at all times otherwise no screen
reader will speak and the computers on this end become paperweights and
I have had problems with pulseaudio in the past too.

Ok, my mistake, I thought MM meant click on M to mute
That corrected but now no sound even from the onboard soundcard.
Everything looks like it should work. Pulseaudio volume control/Output
Devices shows three devices: HDMI, the DSX sound care with port headphones
and the Built-in Audio Analoy Stereo with port Line Out. It knows when the
Line Out is plugged? in.
The Pulseaudio volume control/Playback only shows Alsa plug-in[ogg123]: ALSA
Playback on xxxxx where xxxxx is one of the output devices. Clicking on xxxxx
shows the three devices and allows an one to be selected. Below this is a
line with a slider to set the volume and below this an audio strength signal.
These two lines are the same regardless of the device selection and
regardless of the device selection the volume slider will change the volume
of the audio strength signal. The alsamixer volume setting have no effect on
the audio strength signal.
In short alsamixer device selection and volume settings have no effect on the
audio signal strength shown in pulseaudio volume control.
pulseaudio volume control works the same regardless of device selection.
There is no sound from the connected speakers.
