I've been running Maverick 64bit fine on my Dell M1330 laptop until a couple of days ago. After the latest updates (I guess to kernel 2.6.35-24-generic), sound stopped working properly.
The sound indicator applet tells me that the sound system is not responding. The login sound doesn't play anymore.
On the other hand Rhythmbox plays and I can hear the music. I can adjust Rhythmbox volume but not the global volume (as neither the sound indicator applet nor the multimedia volume keys on my laptop work).
If I open up the terminal and run
it works flawless.
Here is what I get if I try to run pulseaudio from the terminal
Last sentence is in Italian and it means "could not initialize the daemon".
E: module-ladspa-sink.c: Master sink not found

Can someone help me please?
