I think it has to do with needing to configure your default sound card. On mine card29 is something else - I'm not sure what, but it isn't what I want for sound. card0 is the one I need for sound. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Ad … sound_card may help. Maybe not, though. It looks as though I tried to use this and ended up disabling it. I never did get PulseAudio to work.
