No sound after login - Kali 2016.2
I juste made a clean install of the last Kali (not the light one) on my TP300 Full disk and encrypted
Then I updated everything and added Linux headers (I'm not a pro at all with Linux), installed my WiFi driver... and then noticed that I have no sound card in my settings, no sound icon in the control panel, and... no sound ! My sound keys don't work.
I never had this problem with older versions..
I tried a lot of command found on the net but nothing, I think my pc detect the sound card because I think I saw it several times using commands to display cards etc.. And before login, I can play with the volume, I hear the sound, I see the sound icon, and the key works, but after login.. nothing !
Do someone have an idea to fix this ?
I get all back when I enter the "pulseaudio" command, but I need to do it each time I boot, trying to find a fix... why so many problems with linux lol....
To fix the problem;
- Open Terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T)
- Now type
sudo gedit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
- Scroll down to find
;daemonize = no
- Remove the
;(as mentioned by @not2qubit)
daemonize = nowith
daemonize = yes
That should fix it!
If you are using Kali under a VM, such as VirtualBox, then don't try to change anything by installing another sound processor! First try to change the VM sound card settings. For example, using a Windows host with Kali guest, latest update. You will find that
Intel HD Audiois not supported in Kali (out-of-the-box). So make sure you have the following VM settings:
Host Driver: Windows DirecSound Controller: ICH AC97
If there is still no sound on startup, run the following:
systemctl --user enable pulseaudio && systemctl --user start pulseaudio
Check success with:
systemctl --user status pulseaudio
If still no success, you may need to reboot.
Whatever, you do, don't randomly try to
apt-get purge <*pulseaudio>because you may inadvertently remove some Kali features.
lspciin a terminal to get your audio device name. Then run
sudo apt-get install libasound2 alsa-utils alsa-oss. After installing, open
alsamixer. If any of the channels are muted it will say
MM; navigate to those channels and press m to unmute.
