Hey Aere and F,
Thanks for your considerations. You both mentioned relevant details but somehow
the issue was solved. It is very unfortunate that I have spent so many hours
trying to fix it and so many solutions. I cannot track down what did
specifically... My goal with the mail and question at askubuntu was also to
provide a guidance to similar errors.
I'll update the post on askubuntu nevertheless.
If I had to guess what cracked it was uninstalling/purging pulseaudio (leaving
the alsa modules) and then rebooting. This certainly solved the issue. Then to
my astonishment reinstalling pulseaudio left me with a full-working audio
Again, my heartfelt thanks for both of you. The (l)ubuntu community is
