I am running Xubuntu 12.10 and I was trying to repair the sound on the headphone jack since I had sound output through there and now I have no sound what so ever. So I think I made things worst. No sound through the speakers and no sound through the headphone. I know I did something wrong but I don't know what I did. I have pulseaudio. If I could at least get the speakers working again I'll be happy. Any help will be highly appreciated!

Try this - Navigate to this menu - settings-> sound -> output & try different options under play sound through. You can use Test sound button to check if choosing any of those options work for you.

I don't even have the sound option in settings. No icon, nothing! weird? –  MoRent Mar 31 at 4:44
    
In your taskbar, there should be a speaker like icon. Click on it & the last option should be sound settings. –  mindreader Mar 31 at 4:48

I tried that already, thanks but no luck. I remember that I killed pulseaudio in the command. How can I un-kill it if that makes sense. Also, when I use mixxx dj mixer software I get sound from that. –  MoRent Mar 31 at 11:42
