One thing before I go, pulseaudio does not connect, each time when I startup the computer. You can get it running with "pulseaudio --start" in terminal but it is not a permanent fix. Keep me posted when the next beta comes out. I've tested this out as far as I can go now.

Thank you, I'll see if my meager skills will affect a fix. :eek:

FWIW, from a recent antixforum topic

Code: Select all

I installed pavucontrol (Pulseaudio Volume Control) but
its package only “Recommends” pasystray, but pasystray may be necessary…
so, I’ll suggest running this command
sudo apt-get --yes install pulseaudio pavucontrol pasystray paman
(no harm, apt will skip any already installed items listed above)

then
sudo killall pulseaudio
pulseaudio –start & pavucontrol

I think it my have worked although paman through and error.

Code: Select all

paman was not in synaptic or cli-aptiX. I found a paman deb file for stretch; downloaded and installed it.

However, I still get the hangup see attached image:

try "apt pulseaudio --start" in terminal. No sudo needed, also have a look at "man pulseaudio"

I guess I can place the command in the startup file... but I was hoping for something a bit more permanent.

Edit:
Here's what happened when I entered the command in terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt pulseaudio --start
[sudo] password for manyroads: 
E: Command line option --start is not understood in combination with the other options
Edit #2:
I found if I disable the standard Start PulseAudio command and created a new Start PulseAudio:

Code: Select all

pulseaudio -D
Things work. Cludged... stranged.. but seems to work. There must be a better solution.

I know it is only a brief fix, but, I thought it might lead you along the trail. If you fix it then record the ISO with it running will that help?

If I remember correctly the configurations are passed along with rest of the information or the other software you included would not work with the ISO either, right? Back when I worked with Saline OS we made our own backups like that.

It does. However, it also makes the hacked repair persistent (not really a good fix). I have made the hack, but hope for a fix. :needcoffee: When I get one, I'll back out the hack and apply the fix. It's all sooo confusing. :eek:
