sudo apt-get install pavucontrol
then i uninstall that
sudo apt-get purge pavucontrol
but i found something which says me it will use start using ur mic then i try this :
sudo apt-get install paman padevchooser paprefs pavucontrol pavumeter
but some package error comes then i leave this and move ahead error was :
Package padevchooser is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'padevchooser' has no installation candidate
then after restart my sound is not working but i am able to hear sound on my sound system & headfones only problem is i am not able to use my system inbuilt speakers .
