Ok, so not truly related to the site in general, but it’s computers in general, and more specifically, my broken computer.
Recently, I made a late night decision to upgrade from a perfectly stable, working Ubuntu 14.04 to Ubuntu 15.04… what could go wrong?
A lot, as it happens. Two full rebuilds later (thank the Lord for putting
/home on it’s own HDD), and I have just about recovered something resembling a working PC.
The last major hurdle was having no sound.
Ubuntu No Sound
Frustratingly, I could hear the little boot jungle drums of Ubuntu. Then if I logged in as me, no sound at all.
If I logged in as Guest, I could hear some sound. That narrowed it down.
After much Googling and frustration, this fixed it:
rm -rf ~/.config/pulse
Hurrah, sound is back.
