    The link I got from that command

  • Apr 24 17:07:14 Apple pulseaudio[702]: E: [pulseaudio] core-util.c: Home directory not accessible: Permission denied
    

    try

    systemctl --user start pulseaudio.service
    
  • @joekamprad said in No audio:

    systemctl --user start pulseaudio.service

    May need this:

    command systemctl --user start pulseaudio.service
    

    if systemctl is aliased …

  • @manuel i do remember something here ;)

    Apr 24 17:07:14 Apple pulseaudio[702]: E: [pulseaudio] core-util.c: Home directory not accessible: Permission denied
    

    try

    systemctl --user start pulseaudio.service
    

    I’m getting an error saying “Failed to connect to bus: No such file or directory”

  • @mattwong this looks like screwed permissions to me.

  • @joekamprad Ya… when i was growing up and i asked for permission i always got screwed too! The answer was always no! ☺

  • @mattwong said in No audio:

    Home directory not accessible: Permission denied

    ls -l ~/

    This is what I’m getting. From what I can tell, everything is accessed by root?

  • @mattwong
    What does command

    alias systemctl
    

    show there?

  • Can he not just reset the permissions of the home directory? (ownership)

  • What do you have done that users home directory is owned by root would be interesting to know.
    You can chown it back to your user:

    sudo chown -R yourusername /home/yourusername
    

    Replace yourusername to fit your username ;)…

  • @joekamprad Is it necessary to log out and back in after?

  • sure
    better doing it from CLI (tty --> [Ctrl+alt-F2] )

  • @mattwong As @joekamprad has said change your ownership of home directory back to user instead of root.

  • @mattwong
    OK, it is aliased with sudo, which is in my mind wrong (but not your fault). That problematic alias is probably in your $HOME/.bashrc.aliases file. It can be removed or commented out.

    But to get sensible output of that particular command (as it is aliased), you need to write the command like this

    /usr/bin/systemctl --user start pulseaudio.service
    
  • Be careful to change permissions at the right folder!
    Please show the output of command:

    ls -ld $HOME/*
    
  • sudo chown -R mattwong:users /home/mattwong
    

    But as @manuel say take care here… as you can also drives mounted under users home e.t.c. or binding directories there or having a mirrored system…

  • @manuel Mine also shows alias with Sudo but my home ownership is user not root.
