View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to re-initialize sound

January 19th, 2009, 05:49 PM
Hi all,

I'm running Ubuntu 8.10 and have a set of Bose Companion 5 USB speakers connected to the system. I used to have sound on my system and going to Preferences -> Sound would show the "Bose USB..." speakers in the list. However, I mucked around with my system quite a bit trying to get WOW to play with sound under Wine and now I've got no sound. Preferences -> Sound no longer shows the "Bose USB..." speakers. I don't rememeber everything I did, so I'm wondering if there is a way to get the system to re-initialize the sound system, like it did when I installed Ubuntu. Anyone have any ideas about this?

Thanks in advance,
