Just did an upgrade on my laptop from 10.04 to 10.10, and audio doesn't work at all anymore. I have the indicator applet, and it seems like everything is working fine. I've even tried installing several mixers in case something is muted, but nothing is (and mixers are showing activity as if everything is working fine).
No application is reporting any errors, they all seem to be playing happily, but no sound comes out. I've tried reinstalling PulseAudio with --purge but that didn't help either.
(If you need any logs or command output please let me know in the comments, I don't know where to look..)
Things tried so far:
- Creating a new user to eliminate any configuration problems
- Creating /etc/asound.conf with these instructions
sudo apt-get install libxine1-ffmpeg
- Booted from a live CD (10.04) to eliminate any hardware problems
