I am facing audio problems on kubuntu 14.04.
I have already removed the fast boot from windows 8. So, That can't be the problem.
I was trying this: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting
paacmd shows that the device is not muted.
Here, "aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav" doesnt work for the user.
Even in the admin am getting error
subodh@Arya-XPS:~$ sudo -i root@Arya-XPS:~# sudo aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1022:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave aplay: main:722: audio open error: No such file or directory
Once I had tried this command to get the audio working:
rm -r ~/.config/pulse; pulseaudio -k
now it is no longer working.
So it is a configuration problem on kubuntu?
