Can't change volume - no devices found (Sound Working)

Bug #155136 reported by setzergabbiani on 2007-10-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

There's something weird going on with my ubuntu gg... yesterday my volume control started to refuse opening, but i can still hear the sounds os the applications and players... I've tried reinstalling gstreamer and alsa packages, but didn't get any results. I can change the volume via alsamixer, but the volume applet says:

"The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured.

You can remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker icon on the panel and selecting "Remove From Panel" from the menu."
