main.c: Failed to acquire autospawn lock

waiting for sound system to respond

I have been seeing the first message repeatedly in my Log. The second message I see on startup.

Solution: In a terminal window type: ls -l $HOME/.pulse

The output should look like this: lrwxrwxrwx 1 richard richard 23 2011-06-15 12:15 b647ecedc67a8542ee56121f4becac6d-runtime -> /tmp/pulse-YKmNCtFkmWYU

if your permission does not reflect your ownership then type:
sudo chown -R richard:richard /home/richard/.pulse
o make this change please replace richard with your username.
