Need to reinstall some missing PulseAudio pkgs

Postby lKingjr on Sat Nov 14, 2009 3:30 am

OK! I "accidently" on purpose uninstalled PulseAudio from my brand new install of Linux Mint 8 RC1 thinking it might resolve an audio issue I was having. It didn't. When I uninstalled it, it took out about 11 packages. When I re-installed it it put 3 back. is there a way I can get the missing ones back short of a complete install of Mint? I already have a number of programs, themes, I would like to keep. thanks

btw a couple were named mint-somethings which weren't listed in synaptic far as I remember.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

If you used Synaptic to uninstall you would have to look in the History - anything (un)installed should be there including all "mint something"
When you have found out what's missing use the list to install
This shows how important it is to check what else is uninstalled when you uninstall
If you have bad luck removing some seemingly unimportant app can drag most of your system to the bin

it was all pulseaudio files. I was actually trying to get rid of them to see if it helped my audio issues running various ubuntu 9.10 based distro's in VirtualBox on a Mac host. I didn't get them all back, and seems it a package that actually lists everything that should be installed in Mint, although I forget the name cause it's been awhile. Thanks for helping though.
