Bug Description

In Ubuntu 14.10 Pulse audio options dont work at all and there's no Audio option in the top right of the screen any more.

Not sure if that is already getting worked on and changed to something else but likely to happen to alpha versions of Ubuntu ^_^

but thought it was something that ya peeps would like to know just in case.

the audio works but the options are not able to work in system settings plus if 1 was to search for pulse audio through the browser of programs it cant find it

There is no telling what caused the issue without the relevant log, so I'm closing the bug.

If the issue occurs again or with a fresh install, please file a new bug against the pulseaudio package so that relevant logs are collected automatically.
