pulse volume audio control won't start, kde

pulse volume audio control won’t start.

Clicking on the icon does nothing. Output from terminal:

> pavucontrol
pavucontrol: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib64/libcanberra-gtk3.so.0: cannot read file data: Input/output error

I need this to set audio output channels to apps.

If this happened to me, the 1st thing I would check for is a corrupted application “libcanberra-gtk3-0” and/or “libcanberra-gtk3-module”.

Force a re-install of those 2 apps and try again.

Also, ensure you do not have some 3rd party repository in your list of repositories that could have messed up your libcanberra-gtk3.so.0 install.

Yes, that did the trick, working now. :slight_smile:

Maybe the vlc package is the cause, installed.

I’m using monitor speakers. Now viewing PAV, they all say unplugged. It’s usually HDMI1 or HDMI2 - ‘plugged in’.

Excellent ! Glad to read this is now working.

Thanks for the help, now on to the next problem.
