• All of a sudden: Massive PulseAudio problems


    Restarted my new laptop today. Yesterday, everything worked, today I am having massive problems with PulseAudio, when I try to run pavucontrol, I get only a message: Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please wait…
    I have sound, I just can’t run anything pulse related like pavucontrol or pulseequalizer.
    Any ideas?

  • do you already try removing/moving (mv) pulse config folder under ~/.config of your users home?

    may also the ~/.config/pavucontrol.ini if exists…

  • Yes, just did that, no change.

  • Can someone please explain to me why my problem was flagged as spam ?

  • @Jeannie____ said in All of a sudden: Massive PulseAudio problems:

    Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please wait…

    Normally that means that pulseaudio daemon is not running (or blocked/crashed).

    Does a ps -ax show it?

    Did you change anything in /etc/pulse files?

    Can someone please explain to me why my problem was flagged as spam ?

    I’m sure it was somebody’s unintentional mistake. I don’t see it flagged now.

  • should look like this:

    ╰─➤  ps -ax | grep pulseaudio
     1118 ?        S<sl   2:08 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --daemonize=no

  • ps -ax | grep pulseaudio
    1982 pts/1 S+ 0:00 grep pulseaudio

  • looks like not running at all …

  • I reinstalled. Things seem to work now in regards of sound.

  • And then build the module for   again? or without?

    Haven’t built the soundcard module yet, as I have a working equalizer now and the subwoofer works too.
