[solved] Pulseaudio problems

hello

after my gnome 3 upgrade sound stopped working. i have followed this steps on how to setup pulseaudio https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/PulseAudio

nevertheless it still doesnt work. my audio card is:

lspci | grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

i have this packages installed:

* gnome-media-pulse
* gnome-settings-daemon-pulse
* libcanberra-pulse
* pulseaudio-gnome
* lib32-alsa-plugins
* lib32-libcanberra-pulse

doing a series of commands always gives connection refused:

pactl list

Falha na conexão: Conexão recusada

if i try alsamixer:

ALSA lib pulse.c:229:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Conexão recusada

and just typing pulseaudio

W: authkey.c: Failed to open cookie file '/home/livre/.esd_auth': Permissão negada
W: authkey.c: Failed to load authorization key '/home/livre/.esd_auth': Permissão negada
E: module.c: Failed to load  module "module-esound-protocol-unix" (argument: ""): initialization failed.
E: main.c: Module load failed.
E: main.c: Falha em iniciar o daemon.

any help please?

cheers big_smile

Re: [solved] Pulseaudio problems

You're starting pulseaudio as root in your user directory? That would explain the permission problems. And please change your locale to something English so more people can understand, I do not speak Spanish (which is what I assume that is).

So you need to type e.g.

LC_ALL=C pulseaudio

A quick google search http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-957095.html
That would mean that ngoonee was right: check the permissions for /home/livre/.esd_auth and fix them if needed.

And in future, don't run pulseaudio as root. It doesn't need it.

The files were created by the root user somehow, in any case. Only reason I can think of is that you ran pulseaudio as root, or ran an audio-outputting app as root. In general, just don't run applications as root, only those few daemons in your DAEMON line.

Re: [solved] Pulseaudio problems

Sorry if this is too old to bump but Im having the exact same problem, but REALLY early in the install. Im tryin to open alsa mixer but Im getting the whole  "connection refused" thing too with the same lib error. I do have pulseaudio installed, Im not sure if its a permissions thing though. where is the file located that has the authorizations in it, so i can open it up in nano and change it if thats the problem?
