Mint updates - sound problems return (solved)

Postby Bonsaii on Tue Aug 21, 2012 8:55 am

Hi,

After having no sound problems for a while,
the recent Mint updates brought them back.
A few minutes into a flash video or talking
on Skype the speakers go mute.
The headphones still work.

Here are some xsession-errors:

I also noted, that firefox is (now?) using an ALSA plug-in.

In case anyone has a solution, it is highly appreciated.

Thanks
Bonsaii

Update: For whatever reason, re-installing the three gnome-settings-* packages brought sound back.
Thinkpad T410s, LMDE 64Bit, Cinnamon
