I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I recently tried replacing pulseaudio with alsa due to the issues being cause by PA during video playback. I used this guide: http://linuxg.net/how-to-properly-re...ebian-squeeze/. That didn't work right, so I used this guide: http://www.hecticgeek.com/2012/01/ho...-ubuntu-linux/.
Neither worked correctly, so I've re-installed PA along with pavucontrol, and I also re-installed alsa-base. I'm not getting any output at all. The test sound returns no results, and my output device isn't listed, although the control panels for sound settings are all there and seem to function.
I think I may have either uninstalled PA incorrectly the first time around, or re-installed it incorrectly.
If someone could help me fix this issue, I would be very grateful. If I need to uninstall/re-install, telling me how to do so CORRECTLY would be great.
