Sound does not work anymore - (SOLVED)
« on: September 07, 2014, 03:55:41 am »
Yesterday, everything worked in perfect way.
Today, after starting up Peppermint 5, not a single note anymore. The sound card seemed dead.

When I boot under Windows 8.1, everything works fine.
I had a look among the previous post about similar questions and tried some commands,
unfortunately without result, not even after having rebooted:

elias@elias-System-Product-Name ~ $ gedit /var/log/dmesg

** (gedit:2331): WARNING **: Could not load Gedit repository: Typelib file for namespace 'GtkSource', version '3.0' not found

I would be very happy for receiving some help here, because I only would use Windows if there is no other solution available ...

Thank you in advance !!!

Try this:-

Open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
touch ~/.config/pulse/client.confthen
Code: [Select]
echo autospawn = no > ~/.config/pulse/client.confthen
Code: [Select]
sudo killall pulseaudiothen
Code: [Select]
mv -vf ~/.config/pulse ~/.config/pulse-oldWith any luck that will set pulseaudio back to defaults . you may now need to raise the volume a bit with the volume control by the clock.
