No more sound after creating guest account

Postby Erathiel on Sat Jul 28, 2012 2:08 pm

This is my first post here so hello everyone!

The story goes:
I've been using LMDE happily for a few months now, with no issues. The machine is a netbook Acer Aspire One 722. There was only a single user account created on the system as there was no need for any additional ones. Everything worked seamlessly up to the point I decided I needed a new user account so that I could allow other people to use the machine without tampering with my personal preferences and so on.

The point is, after creating a new (guest) account, there is no more sound on my account. Yes, this is no mistake: sound works perfectly fine on the new guest account but it does not work at all any more on the old account of mine and I have no idea why. I have pulseaudio and alsa installed.

What I tried:
- reinstalling pulseaudio after this strange crash but to no avail
- saved the results of `pulseaudio --dump-conf` on both accounts to files and then compared them with grep but they're identical so this is not a good track

Code: Select all
inxi -SAxc 0
System:    Host acer Kernel 3.2.0-2-amd64 x86_64 (64 bit) Distro Linux Mint Debian Edition
Audio:     Card-1 ATI SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) driver snd_hda_intel BusID: 00:14.2
           Card-2 ATI Wrestler HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 6250/6310] driver snd_hda_intel BusID: 00:01.1
           Sound: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Version 1.0.24

Uhm... HELP? :mrgreen:
