Get Alsa Sound to work with flashplugin-nonfree

Jump to: navigation, search

Systems: Debian Wheezy / Ubuntu or alternate Setups with non Gnome Desktops

Description: Pulseaudio is a Addon for Alsa which offers some additional Interfaces for Programs like "talking PC"

Bug: But if you open a Browser with a Flashvideo you often got no Sound but see the Video

Background: Pulseaudio connects via network-manger-gnome to local interfaces to Alsa with Openbox you lost connect. Perhaps a user must be at group "sudo" which is automatic set at gnome-user-manager

Solution: open a terminal as sudo/root User and purge pulseaudio

$sudo killall pulseaudio
$sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio pulseaudio-utils gstreamer0.10-pulseaudio libpulse-browse0 paman pavumeter pavucontrol
$sudo mv /etc/asound.conf /etc/asound.conf-bak
$rm ~/.pulse-cookie
$rm -r ~/.pulse
sudo apt-get install libalsaplayer0
