Bug Description

After an upgrade from Ubuntu 11.10 to 12.04, pulseaudio didn't work, and the root cause turned out to be that /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper did not have o+x permissions. See this:

-rwsr-xr-- 1 root messagebus 292944 Feb 22 03:48 /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper

and then when I did
sudo chmod o+x /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper
pulseaudio worked.

As an additional clue, when I started the pulse audio volume control, it said that /usr/lib/dbus-1.0/dbus-daemon-launch-helper failed, and then when I tried running pulseaudio from the command line, it saud that dbus-daemon-launch-helper didn't have permissions to execute.

This is either an installer problem or a dbus problem.
