    Question There is no sound, I tried a lot of thing.

    No sound at kali. I tried the following commands but the problem was not resolved.

    Version:
    Code:
    root@kali:# uname -a
    Linux kali 4.6.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.6.4-1kali1 (2016-07-21) x86_64 GNU/Linux
    About pulseaudio:
    Code:
    root@kali:~# pulseaudio -D
    bash: pulseaudio: command not found
    
    root@kali:~# pulseaudio
    bash: pulseaudio: command not found
    I tried to install pulseaudio but:

    Code:
    root@kali:/etc/pulse# sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package pulseaudio is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    And I tried this:

    Code:
    root@kali:# systemctl --user enable pulseaudio && systemctl --user startpulseaudio
    Failed to enable unit: No such file or directory
    Someone said to change the daemon.conf file in /etc/pulse , but there is no file seem like daemon.conf

    Code:
    root@kali:/etc/pulse# ls -a
    .  ..  client.conf
    I hope

    Did you not even try updating your APT cache (and the rest of Kali) before complaining of broken or missing packages?
    Code:
    apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
    apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
    apt-get update && apt-get install pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils
    Now you should be able to start pulseaudio in the command line.

    This is how I fixed the sound problem:

    Code:
    root@Kali:~#apt-get install libasound2 alsa-utils alsa-oss
    root@Kali:~# alsamixer
    In alsamixer I typed "m" instead of "MM" below the sound bar for each muted device [turned out that my Master was muted] and it did the job.
