The ‘Audio Volume - System Settings’ dialog does not list any output devices, and so I cannot control volume through KDE’s volume applet.
pavucontrol-qt doesn’t load properly either; it gets stuck saying: ‘Establishing connection to PulseAudio. Please Wait…’. The only way for me to control audio is through
alsamixer. But I want to fix this, because I think this is related to a problem I am having where the audio devices stay at 100% power all the time (according to powertop).
Does anyone have any suggestions?
