    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"?

    Best place I can direct you is the man pages for systemctl. In short, the systemctl command allows you to control systemd and the service manager.

    How deep is your Linux knowledge? Since Kali is based off Debian, you can also refer to Debian documentation if you need more info.

    My knowledge of Linux is 0 absolute. So much so that I do not understand if Linux and Debian are the same thing? Or if Debian and Kali are Linux programs, but in that case if I installed Kali, how do I get out of them to see Linux?

    If you don't have prior Linux experience, Kali may be very difficult for you to use. Not trying to scare you off, but a friendly warning

    Kali is based off the Debian Linux distribution, but highly modified for pen-test use. It has many of the Debian packages, as well as info security-specific stuff. So, when you use Kali, you are using a modified flavor of Debian Linux.

    I strongly urge you to check out docs.kali.org and kali.training before going further. Those 2 resources will be invaluable for helping get you up to speed on Kali.
