[Solved] No sound after control-alt-backspace

Postby cevion on Fri Nov 30, 2012 7:27 am

I was running wine which froze and I used control-alt-backspace. The problem is that I no longer have sound. I do however still have sound on the other account. So I probably just need to restart something. Thanks in advance :)

I still get sound in wine but for everything else I get no sound. I don't know if it's relevant but I compiled wine.

Try restarting pulseaudio. Alt+F2 then:
Code: Select all
pulseaudio -k
Running on a 4-slot toaster @ 60Hz

Thank you! I actually came to write that I solved it by reinstalling wine but your solution will be good to know :D
