The only tests I've done involve discovering that sound doesn't work in
flash, but removing libflashsuport allows the sound to play. What can I
do to get PulseAudio working? Here is a list of the PulseAudio packages
I have installed right now:
But, I would like to thank you for something. In the above list you
will see a reference to xine-lib-pulseaudio. I just removed *that*
package and I now get sound from my DVD movies! Thank you so very much!
PS: What do I need to do to get PA working?
You appear to be missing the items denoted with an asterisk...
you might want to install those (and the libflashsupport and
xine-lib-pulseaudio) packages and perhaps restart because pulseaudio
daemon should start when you login or you can try (as user, not root) to
start pulseaudio in command line (pulseaudio -D)
What you have been doing is systematically removing bits of pulseaudio
which surely is your choice.
