After I started to use OpenSUSE 11 I face problems with Pulseaudio.
It happens quite often that I cannot control sound volume.
When I double click the button (volume control) it says:
Connection failed: connection refused
In terminal I observe following:
rafal@linux-39sr:~/Desktop> pulseaudio -D
W: core-util.c: setpriority(): Brak dostępu
"Brak dostępu" means "Permission denied".
When I start XMMS I can here the sound and even control the volume with pulse. The only problem is that if I double click on the control button there is the message "Connection failed: connection refused".
Restarting PC not always help. I think the problem could be after I install some new packages.
Since ALSA works fine, when I restart it, it does not help:
linux-39sr:/home/rafal/Desktop # /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
Shutting down sound driver done
Starting sound driver: hda-intel done

When I check here:
, then for me it looks like solved bug, but in fact it isn't.
What can I do/check in order to solve it?
It really annoys me, because whenever it happens I cannot use SKYPE (it says there is problem with audio)
