[SOLVED] Pulseaudio - pa_pid-file_create() failed

Sound does not work in vlc or chromium, but does work for skype, firefox, gnome mplayer, banshee

Running pulseaudio -vvv returns the following: pa_pid_fille_create() failed. the daemon is shown as running.

The problem was that the system recognized the default as HDMI.

The solution is found in the wiki pulse configuration examples: Set the Output Device and Set the Input Device

The following was added to /etc/pulse/default.pa

### Make some devices default
set-default-sink alsa_output.pci-0000_00_14.2.analog-stereo
set-default-source alsa_output.pci-0000_00_14.2.analog-stereo.monitor

Pavucontrol configuration for Built-in Audio was set to Digital Stereo Duplex (IEC958)

I now have both analog stereo and SPDIF Digital Stereo for VLC and pulse for Skype.

My only observation is that as Linux has become the creature of larger corporate involvement some things have become over-complex for a simple system.

Re: [SOLVED] Pulseaudio - pa_pid-file_create() failed

Yeah what did you expect to happen? if it works everywhere else then pulse is running and working, so your issue lies with the applications where it doesn't and you didn't provide anything of value to try and diagnose this, please read How To Ask Questions the Smart Way and put some more effort into future questions. Add to that fact that I specifically asked you to provide this information in this thread already

That disclaimer out of the way, post

aplay -Ll
pacmd list-cards
pacmd list-sinks
pacmd list-sink-inputs
sudo fuser -v /dev/snd/*

Preferably while having open and trying to output sound with a working and non working application simultaneously.

Re: [SOLVED] Pulseaudio - pa_pid-file_create() failed

Thanks for the offer of help. I did understand that pulse was working (the volume indicators in the pulse volume control were moving).
I thought that there might be a shortcut. I will await upgrades to the two programs that don't work.

Re: [SOLVED] Pulseaudio - pa_pid-file_create() failed

The two programs work, post the output requested so I can help figure out what's wrong

Re: [SOLVED] Pulseaudio - pa_pid-file_create() failed

Don't really know why you have a combined sink when HDMI output doesn't work (but maybe for simultaneous headset and speaker output? which doesn't sound like it would make much sense). You likely enabled the simultaneous output option in paprefs, there's not much point in checking this option if you don't use it, it just adds more confusion to the mix in that case

The underlying issue here is that VLC is set to play to the HDMI sink, while you want your analog card and/or headset, go to pavucontrol and switch that. Another thing I notice in this particular example is that mplayer isn't routed through pulseaudio so if you intend to have simultaneous playback of programs while using mplayer you should get that to play via pulseaudio or use another player or  set mplayer to play to your 'default' card (not hw:0 but the card that's called default which is a compatibility layer for ALSA to pulseaudio).
