I know this is my own fault. But what i did was this
first i wrote this command 'sudo apt-get remove pulseaudio' and then i wrote again 'sudo apt-get install pulseaudio' and now the sound doesn't work
Hi. I wrote some time ago about my problems with sound in PulseAudio. I decited to remove it, and use only ALSA like I was few months ago (I think). Currently in alsamixer I have only "PulseAudio" master volume, before that I had more sliders. But... how to remove PulseAudio? Pacman says, that gnome-settings-daemon depends on pulseaudio. How can I disable it?
I was listening to music, and my sound suddenly went dead in all my applications. I'm using Ubuntu 12.04, which uses pulseaudio, so I tried sudo /etc/init.d/pulseaudio restart, but nothing happened. According to lsof | grep pcm, nothing is using the soundcard at the moment, although I'm not entirely sure if my source for that command is applicable.
So after installing JACK and using 'sudo usermod -a -G audio username' and restarted. This made JACK work however no program using pulseaudio (more or less everything) made any sound. I purge removed Pulseaudio, restarted, reinstalled it, restarted and finally the sound was working again. The only place sound won't come from is the test area in sound preferences.
