Thread: Pulse Audio Connection failed : Connection refused

  1. #1

    Unhappy Pulse Audio Connection failed : Connection refused

    Alright in gnome whenever I log in pulseaudio works fine for some time but then after like 20 to 30 minutes, sometimes less it stops working and I get the message when I double click the volume control applet:

    Connection failed : Connection refused

    If I restart the system it works fine again for a while but fails again later on, this bug is really annoying, can't even listen to music.

    Any help?

    Personally, I have deleted every pulseaudio related files. It's not that useful, since most sound applications have its own volume control, it eats cpu and it's not stable.

    Is there a guide or something to tell me how to do it, cause I tried once and still got that error, will it be stable by next release?

    To remove every pulse audio files:
    Go to yast and search for "pulse". Search pulseaudio is not enough, since a lot of files only have "pulse" in it's name.

    Remove every files. Kill X and restart.

    No you don't need to install anything, since alsa is already installed.

    The volume applet will work, since it works with alsa and not pulseaudio.

    If you still want sound mixing in gnome, you should install esound.

    was esound installed by default on 10.3? I am going to remove pulseaudio as soon as I finish download "kernel-source"

    I tried pulseaudio with suse 10.3 some month ago and I had to remove the esound pacakge and replace it with pulseaudio-esound-compat.

    Though it is not nessesary needed - who wants system sound anyway. I just wanted to tell you that it is recommended for gnome.
