Please, I hope that I'm not posting this in the wrong location.
Some additional information here: I'm using Linux Mint 13 Xfce "Maya" on an Asus Eee PC 1201N-PU17-SL. This netbook has NVIDIA Ion graphics card.
I have activated the Additional Driver "NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version-current) [Recommended]".
After the most recent update as of this morning, I have NO sound. I tried going into PulseAudio Volume Control (which is version 0.99.2-1build1 in Linux Mint 13 Xfce), and I can no longer access any of the controls. I get this:
"Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please wait..."
The latest version of PulseAudio Volume Control is 2.0, but I hesitate trying to update it myself. Could someone who works with the PPAs and/or repository/-ies please be informed? I would very, VERY much appreciate this; thank you.
