Before starting PulseEffects, my audio output to the speakers/headphones is fine. Once I start PulseEffects (with no output effects toggled), no audio is heard from anything. Closing PulseEffects does not remedy the issue; I have to restart Ubuntu to regain audio out. Any ideas?
I had the same problem. In my case, incorrect pulse config made that problem.
I fixed that problem by resetting that configuration by:
pulsefolder located at
$HOME/.configto any name (just for backup the original)
Open your terminal and type the commands below:
pulseaudio --kill pulseaudio --start
