Dear Wiki user,
You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Ubuntu Wiki" for change notification.
The "PulseAudio/Log" page has been changed by diwic:
Added startup logging
* To return your system to a clean state again, edit ~/.pulse/client.conf with your favorite editor and remove the line "autospawn = no". If the file is now empty, you can just as well delete it. Then log out and log in again.
* Last but not least - thanks for helping out!
+ === Logging startup (advanced) ===
+ If the problem only manifests itself during startup, then the above method might not work. This method logs the startup phase and works with Ubuntu 14.04 or above.
+ * Open a terminal, then execute the following command:
+ sudo nano /etc/pulse/client.conf
+ * An edit window will appear. Add this line to the file:
+ extra-arguments = extra-arguments = --log-target=newfile:/tmp/pulseverbose.log
+ * Now reboot your computer and log in to generate the log file.
+ * The log files are in the /tmp directory. You might see more than one file (pulseverbose.log, pulseverbose.log.1, pulseverbose.log.2, etc). In case you don't know which file is the right one, please attach all files to the launchpad bug.
+ * Remove the extra line from /etc/pulse/client.conf to restore your system to original behaviour.
+ * Last but not least - thanks for helping out!
