Thread: Help Fixing pulseaudio install

    Post Help Fixing pulseaudio install

    Hello , I recently installed kali and then I tried to upgrade pulseaudio but when i run
    apt-get install pulseaudio
    it says it's already at newest version

    then I decided to upgrade it manually <<Thinking That it's a problem for the sound is always muted at boot up

    and I removed pulseaudio and gnome-core removed with it because pulseaudio was a dependency for gnome-core

    so I built and installed the pulseaudio 4.0 and still the sound is muted on start-up so when I run
    apt-get install gnome-core
    it tells me that I need to install pulseaudio which is already installed but not via apt

    so how do I remove the manually installed pulseaudio 4.0 when apt doesn't recognise it

    Open Home folder open etc then open init.d with leafpad go to line 25 where it says PULSEAUDIO_SYSTEM_START=0 and change the 0 to 1 PULSEAUDIO_SYSTEM_START=1 and save! Should load audio on boot...

    You have to install the alsa-base and alsa-utils. If you install any of those, the other will be a added automatically since both are dependencies of each other.

    The one you need is alsa-utils, but the alsa-base ia a dependency, just to make it clear.

    Once installed, place the volume at the level of your choice, then save that configuration by running: alsactl store

    Then just reboot. Check your volume. It should be at the level you set it up before rebooting.
