My audio is no longer working in Xubuntu 12.04 after working fine for about a year. This happened right after visiting the following website and installing an audio browser application to upload voice samples for the creation of an open-source speech recognition program: http://www.voxforge.org/home/read
I do not know if that is what caused the problem, but audio stopped working around the same time I installed this web application.
When I type in the terminal
I get the following:
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: Daemon startup failed.
I tried the following next:
sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
When I type 'pulseaudio' at the command prompt, I get:
E: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running. E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() failed.
