When I logout and log back in the sound seems to work but the sound icon itself says that it cannot detect any speaker and I cannot control the sound no more.
I suspect that the issue is that pulseaudio does not start when you log back in, only when you reboot; thus, this issue only appears in this specific situation.
Solutions I tried:
- Tried to
$ sudo systemctl unmask pulseaudio-enable-autospawn.servicebut it did not work and the service remained masked.
$ sudo mv /usr/lib/systemd/system/pulseaudio-enable-autospawn.service /usr/lib/systemd/system/pulseaudio-enable-autospawn.service.oldand
$ systemctl list-unit-files | grep pulsereturned nothing but the issue remained the same.
- Tried to remove
$ sudo apt install --reinstall pulseaudiobut it the issue remained the same
$ pulseaudio, it only made the icon appear as if the speakers is working but it is actually a total malfunctioning icon that does not control anything.
should i reinstall my system?
