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
00:00:55.463915 PulseAudio: Could not connect playback stream 'VirtualBox Front [WIN7]': Bad stat

Do you have any ideas?
Otherwise, he said I should look to my host's audio config. He suspect that I have some sort of setting where only one app is allowed at any time to have access to the audio...
Distro: Linux Mint 18.3 KDE

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.

Aww damn!

You're the second person to have Firejail cause such issues that we couldn't diagnose properly.

I need to add that to my list of things to check.

Thank you very much for reporting back, and sorry I didn't reply earlier. I had been off the forum for a few weeks.

Soo happy you got it figured out! :D
