All other apps (like Chrome, Spotify, and audio configuration sound test) sound fine.

I've tried -safe-mode, re-installing, and removing duplicate Flash plugins. My /etc/hosts file is Xhosts, I've cleared the cache, pulseaudio is running, all pop-ups are allowed,

For sound-test I've used both of these in both Chrome and Firefox: http://camendesign.com/code/video_for_everybody/test.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lo01PcgxHMU

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

As it is based on Debian, I suppose the desktop independent method on Ubuntu is putting start-pulseaudio-x11 & into ~/.xsessionrc (see https://wiki.debian.org/Xsession#User_configuration and https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch07.en.html#_customizing_the_x_session_new_method).

You can of course also add the command to the autostart applications specific to your environment - there's probably a GUI interface for doing that in the settings (see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Autostarting#On_desktop_environment_startup). level 4 diarrheaninja 2 points · 5 months ago

Alright, it looks like it was definitely a problem with pulseaudio, but I couldn't figure out how to make it run. It kept saying failed to start.

I found the solution on this page. Posting the fix in case anyone else has this problem:

In the terminal, type:

rm ~/.config/pulse/*

And hit enter.

Then reboot.
