Pulseaudio problem

Hi after installing Firejail somehow it has removed Pulse audio but can't seem to narrow down the problem to which program should be reinstalled.

Please provide more information. What distro/version/desktop environment are you using?

Do you have pavucontrol (the Pulse Audio mixer) installed; it provides more granular controls for Pulse)

Have you looked in your package manager/software center to check whether pulse is listed as installed or missing? If the latter, have you tried reinstalling and, if so, to what end?


$ locate pulseaudio
yield any information? (If you post the output of that command here, be sure to surround it with "code" tags, which become available when you click the "Go Advanced" button at the bottom of the "compose post" window.)

Sorry for the late reply but i know what caused the problem. There was some sort of conflict with Firefox and Firejail.
I just can't identify where the conflict is. Some help in fixing this please.
