    Re: Sound not working Ubuntu 14.04

    I did. I guess it didn't work the first time, but I tried it again and it installed properly. Here is the new info: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=92...8d0a20aa166115

    Despite doing that, my problem remains. Now when I try to go to my sound settings, they wont even open.

    Run:
    Code:
    rm -r ~/.config/pulse
    Log out and back in. Better?
    What would happen if your hard disk died right now?

    Audio stopped working

    I have been using 14.04 for a while but today the audio stopped working. After looking through several solutions of which none of them worked I re-installed 14.04 but the audio is still not working. I don't think it is a hardware issue as when I booted into windows the audio was fine.
    Having looked at another thread I have run the alsa info script and here are the results:

    Thanks for any help.

    Re: Audio stopped working

    Mine stopped working also. Although it started today. It looks to me like we're both running stock intel hardware. I'll see what I can dig up.

    I've tried (and you can too) pulseaudio --kill This kills the process
    pulseaudio This restarts the process

    As far as what I've read, both of these command can be run as user.. Not root.

    Still no luck but I'll keep digging.

    Re: Sound not working Ubuntu 14.04

    I have the same problem --- 14.04 no sound at all. I have a Sound applet, which shows only one output: Dummy Output. In reality I have a built-in on-motherboard "sound card", and an external USB-based DAC. Both worked before the upgrade. I collected the info here: http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=25...9d1db20b1ad108, pulseaudio is installed, and I never messed with it, and I unsuccessfully tried to remove ~/.config/pulse. Nothing helps so far.

    Mine just stopped working as well in xubuntu 14.04
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Re: Sound not working Ubuntu 14.04

    Having the same issue. Everything was working fine a few hours ago, then I ran some updates and rebooted to no sound and a "Dummy Output." Looking through the apt logs, it seems the only potentially relevant packages that changed were related to systemd, specifically these:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/systemd-services
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/libpam-systemd

    Re: Sound not working Ubuntu 14.04

    Was having the same problem a few days ago after upgrading to 14.04 from 13.10, lost all sound. I did manage to get it working again and I believe the issue was with pulseaudio. Although I'm not really sure what it was that made it start working I do remember some things.
    Verify first your card is recognized and are getting sound through alsa
    Code:
    aplay -l
    Code:
    aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
    In my case my onboard card (HDA Intel MID) and (HDA Nvidia) HDMI were being recognized and I was able to hear the 'front center' voice.
    I also remember purging pulseaudio
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio
    and it giving an error about some dir not being empty so it was not removed. I manually deleted the files and directories it gave messages about
    then delete your local config files,
    Code:
    rm -r ~/.pulse ~/.asound* ~/.pulse-cookie
    re-install pulseaudio
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
    reboot just incase
    hope for sound!

    I also remeber not having a sound indicator at one point, if this happens make sure the package "indicator-sound" is installed.
    Not being to hear the test sounds in the sound panel, make sure "libcanberra-pulse" is installed.
