    Question I do not have the sound after installing distribuition kali linux in Asus X58L

    Hi, I have this problem: I installed Kali Linux distribuition in HDD on this ASUS X58L laptop and when I'm in my user account, I no longer have the sound.
    Before I get into my user account I see the sound icon, but after I logged in the user account I no longer see the icon and if I'm on the internet I do not hear any sounds.

    Kali Linux is the only OS

    Hi, sorry my bad english, I translate it with google.

    The GNU GRUB is 2.02 beta3-5

    I do not know if this is what you meant, I opened a "Terminal" window and I wrote "systemctl enable pulseaudio", so it says "failed to enable unit: pulseaudio.service file: no such file or directory"

    This below is what I see if within the audio settings

    But I have to type exactly so "systemctl --user enable pulseaudio"?

    Right, just copy/paste the entire command as-is...everything past the word "Try"

    It might be interesting to deepen the subject.
    What it is and what it can do "systemctl"?
    What is "pulseaudio.service" and "pulseaudio.socket"?
