I've done some research but am at present abit confused here. Not exactly sure when my issue began showing up but for some reason my sound is acting up for starters.
When I boot into Ubuntu, the splash screen does it's thing and then the logon screen appears (sound is good here) then nautilus loads (sound present here too) but after that, gaim has no sound and anytime I attempt to playback a clip or any flash content (like from CNN or C/net) Firefox will freeze up. I have to "force quit" it to get it to close.
Read somewhere where Compfuzion (or whatever it's called) might be a culprit but I don't have it installed on my system. I had Beryl but uninstalled it to see if it made any difference. No joy.
The gist I'm getting is that an update may be the culprit instead but I'm a bit at a loss as to what to look for at this point.
I've checked sound settings in Gaim and they show as good. I've of a mind that this is two unrelated things but still, what's a solution for this?
Please keep in mind that I'm also relatively new to Ubuntu and am learning as much as I can.
BTW, if this would be better off in a different forum then by all means move it. Just figured some of the Alabama gang might have an answer.
