Re: Sound stopped working, pulse audio access denied

This was done after a boot up, ie before killing pulseaudio as sudo and then starting it again to make the sound work.

Code: Select all

~ $ sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*
[sudo] password for jugular: 
                     USER PID ACCESS COMMAND
/dev/snd/controlC0:  root       1595 F.... pulseaudio

Re: Sound stopped working, pulse audio access denied

Code: Select all

jugular@jugular-ThinkPad-T60 ~ $ which pulseaudio
/usr/bin/pulseaudio
jugular@jugular-ThinkPad-T60 ~ $ pulseaudio --version
pulseaudio 8.0
jugular@jugular-ThinkPad-T60 ~ $

Re: Sound stopped working, pulse audio access denied

I don't know if it helps to mention this again, but this all started when I wanted to record computer playback on audacity, and blindly following instructions, I think I did this: $ snap install pulseaudio It all seemed to work, but it was on the next reboot that my sound stopped working. And now I ...

Re: Sound stopped working, pulse audio access denied

After running the first line I checked the Application Autostart and there was a pulseaudio entry with the box now checked. I don't know if it's a new entry, as there's still only one pulseaudio entry- to me it looks like the same one I just unchecked but with the box checked. I gave you the readout...

Hey, thanks!

Before I reboot, here's the readout, because it doesn't look right:

Re: Sound stopped working, pulse audio access denied

Thanks so much for your continued help, by the way.

No .pulse file in my home directory. I reinstalled pulse audio anyway and rebooted my machine but it didn't make any difference.

Re: Sound stopped working, pulse audio access denied

Okay so what seems to be happening is that after I restart my machine pulseaudio returns to running as root. To get the sound running again I need to go through all the steps again, including typing sudo killall pulseaudio because killall pulseaudio gives me the same error messages I had before. Aft...
