Apart from other problems some of which I have fixed following the
upgrade last night to kde4.4, I have now lost sound output. No sound
from any audio player and no sound with YouTube either. I am on 64bit
Karmic (9.10) with all updates.
Following the update I had similar problems to those already
documented with loss of the plasma desktop or workspace or .... This I
fixed by running the recover option from the grub menu using dpkg. This
worked and returned my desktop access.
For sound, my settings were using the Xine backend and that remains
so, but without any sound now. I also do not have the little icon in
the system tray that looked like a hifi speaker (mixer control?) and
gave me access to many audio features.
What needs to run for that icon to appear? and is that what I need to
do to get sound back?
And I'm sending this quick hopefully as my desktop has just frozen.
