Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The process


is frequently using up to 20% of my CPU which seems a bit excessive. At the same time that this started occurring, my function keys to control the volume have stopped working. I am running Xubuntu 13.10 and also have the problem of the sound indicator on the panel showing incorrect information although I am unsure if this is related.

Thanks heaps.

By the way I am a real beginner with linux :)
