Alsa sound problem
Hello. My sound stopped working.

$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found...


$ sudo aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
Home directory /home/georgii not ours.
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC662 rev1 Analog [ALC662 rev1 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Same with alsamixer:

$ alsamixer
cannot open mixer: No such file or directory


$ sudo !!
shows me the mixer.

Anyway, the sound is just gone. When I do:

$ ubuntu-bug audio
ERROR: symptom script /usr/share/apport/symptoms/ crashed:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/apport/", line 56, in thread_collect_info
    package = symb['run'](report, ui)
  File "/usr/share/apport/symptoms/", line 187, in run
    package = check_pulseaudio_running(report, ui)
  File "/usr/share/apport/symptoms/", line 80, in check_pulseaudio_running
    return set_title(report, 'pulseaudio', 'Pulseaudio is not running')
NameError: global name 'set_title' is not defined

It says: "PulseAudio seems to have crashed. Do you wish to report a bug?", then crashes.

Any help appreciated.

Solved with

chmod -R a+rwX /dev/snd

Saved my day! Of course things reset backs after reboot, so I added my user to audio group.
