Is your pulseaudio running?

Enter
Quote:
ps -aux|grep [p]ulseaudio
to check that.

Thank you for your reply.

Code:
$ ps -A ux | grep [p]ulseaudio
2876  0.0  0.1 427100  6900 ?        S<l  06:49   0:00 /usr/bin/pulseaudio --start --log-target=syslog
I also took the liberty of checking the log output for any pulseaudio entries
I last booted my system at about 6:49 so these are all since last boot
Code:
$ cat syslog | grep pulseaudio
Feb 13 06:49:55 nolan-linuxmint pulseaudio[3386]: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running.
Feb 13 06:50:35 nolan-linuxmint pulseaudio[2876]: [pulseaudio] sink-input.c: Failed to create sink input: sink is suspended.
Feb 13 06:51:34  pulseaudio[2876]: last message repeated 47 times
Feb 13 07:12:28 nolan-linuxmint pulseaudio[2876]: [pulseaudio] sink-input.c: Failed to create sink input: sink is suspended.
Feb 13 07:13:35  pulseaudio[2876]: last message repeated 35 times
Also I found a command to get some output from pulseaudio while doing some searching:
Code:
$ pkill pulseaudio; sleep 2; pulseaudio -vv
I: [pulseaudio] main.c: setrlimit(RLIMIT_NICE, (31, 31)) failed: Operation not permitted

P.S. To double check that it is in fact the installation of jackd that was causing the problem I temporarily uninstalled it, the sound came back, and then went away again when I reinstalled it.

It is explained here
