Sudden loss of sound from browser.

Post by elsmandino »

Hi there.

I have a really strange issue.

.I am pretty new to Linux, generally, but managed to get Ardour and Guitarix running on Ubuntu Studio.

I followed some instructions only, to install Cadence, so that I could turn on Pluseaudio to Jack bridging.

I use this so I can play guitar to Youtube.

Everything was fine, but my cat jumped on my keyboard and I have suddenly lost sound.

I have tried everything and cannot get it back.

I have attached a copy of my Catia screenshot.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Does the browser sound work again when you stop JACK? That's how it is on my system.

You're going to have to take your computer to the hospital emergency room, and ask them to perform a CAT scan.

Managed to get it back now, thanks - somehow, my moggie managed to mute pulse audio.

Switched it back on, again, and all fine.

Perhaps my cat wants me to go back to Windows!

Hello elsmandino,

Would you kindly be able to explain how you got things back, that is getting sound out of your browsers again? I have lost that about 3 weeks ago
and I had no cats jumping on my keyboard. :D I use Cadence and Catia as well in linuxmint with kxstudio repos. Some updates about 3 weeks ago happened and some things broke with my sound, mainly not getting the alsa pulseaudio jack bridge working correctly anymore. The result was no sound in my browsers.

I have recently posted about it here: viewtopic.php?p=121278#p121278. No one has answered but it seems you have
found the answer, and for me the details would be greatly appreciated.

Glad you have yours working.

Thank you very much.
