All we did was remove the execute bit. You can try sudo chmod 755 $(which pulseaudio) That should revert the change. Sorry for the problem caused.

I used to have problems with pulseaudio, you can try sudo chmod -x $(which pulseaudio). After this restart. Might work, might not. To revert the change you can do sudo chmod +x $(which pulseaudio)

Looking at your screenshot, everything looks correct. It shows you a M instead of a numeric value to indicate if a channel is muted. Do you have pulseaudio installed?

run sudo alsamixer and make sure that your device isn't muted.

You can't change permissions for files on FAT filesystems. Your error suggests that you have specified the wrong device name.

There's OWA which is a web interface. I use that when I'm outside the corporate firewall and need to access email.

comment Won't let me log in after updating
There's something wrong with the choice of your desktop environment. Try changing your session. If you can log in via the command line then your ubuntu installation is ok.
