Audio Ubuntu18.04 not working ( HDMI, or USb Headset, etc... )
I'm trying to get audio to work in Ubuntu 18.04 with either HDMI or some USB headphones. I manged to get speaker-test to work like so:
speaker-test -Dplughw:CARD=Headset,DEV=0 ( This correctly plays pink noise ).
I can also get alsamixer to show the HDMI output and the USB headset.
So, I think it should be able to work -- if I can figure it out.
But I can't get pulseaudio to work at all. I've tried all these steps:
deleted .config/pulse -- didn't work.
uninstall and reinstalled both alsa and pulseaudio -- didn't work.
When I run pulsaudio --start - I get "Daemon Startup failed". When I use -vvv -- I see lots of debug log info, but nothing that tips me off.
My guess is that the issue is that pulseaudio's daemon won't start, but I don't know how to fix it...
