How to quick fix the "no sound" issue in Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10


I just installed the shinny new Ubuntu 8.10 and I had an annoying surprise: I have no sound!!!

Arrrrgh! I skipped the 8.04 because of it's lots of bugs, but it seems that 8.10 still have some of them... Happily, after some 10min web-digging I found an workarround, so here is the quick solution:

sudo killall pulseaudio
sudo gzip /etc/X11/Xsession.d/70pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload

and them go to System>Preferences>Sound and change everything to ALSA:
gnome-sound-properties

Q.: How do I make this a permanent change and not have to do it every time I want to hear sound? (Mike Riversdale)
A.: First, make sure you changed everything to ALSA on
gnome-sound-properties
, then remove all pulseaudio related entries from
gnome-session-properties
OBS.: if pulseaudio insists to load at the startup, add an entry
killall -9 pulseaudio

;-)


P.S.: PulseAudio sucks!

Top advice.

How do I make this a permanent change and not have to do it every time I want to hear sound?

It works! After 'sudo alsa force-reload', there was a dialogue box for me that asked if I wanted to reload or not. I chose reload.

Doesn't work for me. Checked cables, volume controls, and repeatedly restarted ALSA. No matter what I can't get this thing to give me sound. Anyone know another bit of advice or a link I could look into, Google only gives me this stuff.

Thank you!
