Restarting sound??

Postby georgetoon » Sun Jul 13, 2008 5:12 pm

I'm running Linux Mint Daryna. I've had a few instances where the sound suddenly stopped. I kill the process (artsd) and restart the sound in system settings, but it's no help. Logging off and logging back on is no help, either. A complete restart of the OS is needed.

Is there a way to restart the sound without having to do a complete restart of the OS?

try this in a terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/alsa-utils restart
