Can you please post your daemon.conf file, so that we can see what changes you have made.

Sound indicator not appearing is typically because pulseaudio is not running; can you start pulseaudio daemon (service) from the terminal, and report back error messages (Esp those related to daemon.conf): Dash-Terminal, then give the command
pulseaudio --start and please report back output.
