    Re: Sound not working Ubuntu 14.04

    As stated above, there was some sort of mix up on the packages included in yesterday's update, including systemd.

    I reported a bug on launchpad for Kubuntu about the same time as someone posted the same for Ubuntu. It was resolved in less than two hours.

    If you are still getting errors with app indicators, check Launchpad to see if it has been reported. I'm thinking there were a lot more messed up packages and they fixed some of the critical ones last night and are still working on others.

    By the way, I was hit with problems with logout, sound and networkmanager's app indicator, all of which were in the pile of corrected stuff by about 1:00am Pacific time.

    The latest update fixed the problem for me without doing anything special --- updated & rebooted.

    With the recent updates to systemd, sound should now work without adding yourself to the audio group.
    Okay. I just thought I'd post my solution up just in case it was a different cause for the same problem. What's interesting is that without the systemd upgrades, adding myself to the audio group did work.

    ==EDIT==
    Having said that, I removed myself from the audio group and logged back in, and everything is fine.
