    Sound doesnt work

    Hello All,

    Unfortunately, sound doesn't work on my Kali Linux and I have no clue why. I tried multiple fixes that I found, none of them worked. I have Kali 64bit 2017.2, and here is what I tried:

    Reinstall Kali on USB (I have persistence version, but sound didnt work even with live).

    systemctl --user enable pulseaudio && systemctl --user start pulseaudio

    curl -s | bash

    pulseaudio -D

    (When I did these steps, I had to reinstall kali :/ )
    sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio paman pavumeter pavucontrol
    rm ~/ .pulse-cookie ,r m -r ~/ .pulse
    sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-tools alsa-tools-gui alsa-utils alsa-oss alsamixergui libalsaplayer0

    So to be honest, im desperate now. Can someone with advanced knowledge of Linux - Debian help me ?

    Here is my adapter:
    Audio device: Intel Corporation Device a171 (rev 31)

    Thank you in advance!

    Whenever I've found myself without sound, after experiencing the issue many times and tried many ways, this is what I ALWAYS do and have done. (As recent as a few months ago after installing on varying machines.)

    In terminal...

    root@kali:~#apt-get install alsa-utils -y

    root@kali:~#systemctl --user enable pulseaudio && systemctl --user start pulseaudio


    That's it.
