Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I finally found why the sounds was completely messed up on my laptop. The culprit was: Firejail. Since I uninstalled Firejail the sound is working fine everywhere.
Thank very much for your help MrEen.

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Hello MrEen, Sorry to disturb you again... I finally got a response from someone at VB forum. The guy who is trying to help me he/she is not a Linux/Pulse audio guy and could not interpret this: 00:00:44.329493 Audio: Enable stream '[PulseAudio] Front' failed with VERR_INVALID_POINTER 00:00:55.46391...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

When everything but VBox is working, shut down the guest OS, go to Settings > Audio and change 'Audio: ICH AC97' to 'Audio: Intel HD Audio' then restart the guest OS. Thanks but I had tried to change that before and it did not work. I tried all different combinations of 'Host audio Driver' and 'Aud...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Thanks Flemur but I had already tried apulse and it did not work... When I launched VB, sounds is working fine in VB but not in SMPlayer, Firefox, etc, and when I run pulseaudio -k then the sound comes back in SMPlayer and Firefox but stops in VB. SMPlayer and VB have always been properly configured...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I think what you need to do is run pulseaudio -k , then launch VB. Yes, if I do that the sound works on VB but the sound is not working on SMPlayer. Then if I run pulseaudio -k again, the sound comes back on SMPlayer but does not work anymore on VB. When VB is running and I use pulseaudio -k then t...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Isn't it strange when I run pulseaudio -k that actually pulseaudio starts working on Firefox and SMPlayer? It should be the opposite... Again I still don't have sound on VirtualBox... I thought that running pulseaudio --start would make the sound comes back on VirtualBox, but it does not... Any othe...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I found something interesting... It's not only when I reboot my computer that pulseaudio turns off by itself. It turns off like that from time to time (I haven't discovered why yet). When pulseaudio is off I have sound on VirtualBox but NOT on Firefox and SMPlayer. When I run pulseaudio -k the sound...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I'm sorry. For KDE users the command should have been kdesudo ... . I've never used KDE and totally forgot about that. That's ok, no worry. Regarding VirtualBox, is vboxusers in the output from running groups $USER in the terminal? Yes, it does appear in the output... But there is no sound on Virtu...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Users of 18.3 and earlier versions of Mint type this in the terminal: gksudo xed /etc/pulse/default.pa Did not do anything. So I opened my file manager in root, found the line and changed it. If still no change, in the terminal enter gksudo xed /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf then enter your passwor...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Now that pulseaudio has been reinstalled SMPlayer does not work again. I changed the audio settings, I tried pulse, alsa, etc, but nothing works.
Firefox also does not work.

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

I'd suggest reinstalling pulseaudio then run these two commands in the terminal to get a thorough output of your sound system: cd ~/ followed by wget http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh -O alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh Thanks. I did that and the only thing I got was a file named "alsa-info...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

So... I have tried many different possibilities and yet it does not work fully. I installed apulse and tried to make it work with SMPlayer and Firefox but it did not work at all. I uninstalled pulseaudio completely because with it I only had my sounds system working (no sounds on Firefox and no soun...

Re: Reinstall the volume system by default

Hi MrEen, In fact I installed lots of different sound apps, beside alsa and pulseaudio because those two seemed not to work properly. I deleted the files you mentioned but I still have issue. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. To get the sound from Youtube on Firefox I need to have pulseaudi...
