    Soundproblem on Lubuntu 12.10

    Having some sound problems with my Samsung N120 Netbook.
    I'm using the new Lubuntu 12.10.
    If I e.g. play a youtube video the sound is on, but if I try to play another one, there is no sound at all. Same problem with other "sound sources" like mp3.
    The only thing I can do, is to boot the machine

    Lubuntu uses Alsa by default as its sound server. Recently on 12.04, and 12.10 I have installed pulseaudio as a replacement. Pulse audio has several advantages of over Alsa, one of them being multichannel audio. Just use:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol
    Now I just need to find out how to submit it on Launchpad as a proposal for Lubuntu 13.04 lol

    Looks like, it's not a Lubuntu problem. I have the same issue with Ubuntu and Kubuntu.

    May be it's a kernel problem?

    Having to reboot after one single play, no, Lubuntu plays audio, streamed and recorded files well on my netbook (AOA 110, 1st gen.) but I'm still trying to get Audacity to record streamed audio without benefit of Pulse to aid Alsa. Haven't found a way of doing this yet (RTFM? - did that) whereas on Ubuntu and SolusOS, it is possible as pavucontrol and Alsa cohabit well apparently. Also don't want to screw up a sound system that works, even with bloody Skype!
