View Full Version : [kubuntu] Keep losing sound

I dont know why but all of a sudden sound has become a real problem. keep getting a notification about analog sound failed to load reverting back to digital.

aplay -l output

ddog@nsa-495823:~$ aplay -l

problem is Analog is the only one that works. but it keeps saying analog failed to load and reverts back to digital.

is there any way to force it to analog and blacklist the digital?

im almost sure this is a "pulse audio" problem as I have never had sound issues until pulse audio started getting used.
