Volume Control and Pulse Audio

I can't get the volume control to connect to Pulse Audio. When I have the Volume control open on 2 windows the Pulse Audio interface flickers on the windows and then tells me it is connecting. It used to work but now it is not working.

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

Try deleting the files (not folders if there are any) in /home/YourUserName/.config/pulse, then in the terminal run this:

pulseaudio -k

You'll probably have to restart your sound playing apps after that. If the sound daemon doesn't automatically restart (with default settings it should) run this to restart it:

pulseaudio --start

Does that fix the issue?

Oh, and welcome! smile

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

Thank you. After deleting the files the interface returned but it is not detecting my built-in speakers.

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

No PulseAudio daemon running, or not running as session daemon.

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

Okay, looks like PA is dying on us. Try running this, let it go for a minute, then if it ends, paste back the last 10 lines:

pulseaudio -vvv

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

I'm sorry, somewhere very shortly before the Unloading stuff, there should be something that tells us why it's shutting down. Try about 10 more lines above what you pasted.

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

I discovered that it was running: pulseaudio --start, that got my interface back. Not deleting the files.

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

I don't think I've seen this before.

Did you customize /etc/pulse/default.pa at all? (Not sure if the location will be the same on whatever distro you're using, but it's probable.)

See if this works to keep PA alive. After pulseaudio --start, run this:

pactl load-module module-always-sink

Then try to get the output of pacmd list-cards

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

0 card(s) available.

I did not customize anything related to the volume control.

Re: Volume Control and Pulse Audio

What distro and version are you running?

If inxi is installed can I see the output of inxi -Fxz and aplay -l please. Add dmesg | grep snd as well
