The title says the problem but ill go into detail. I have audio in all Qubes that come with Qubes. I have no audio in standalone Qubes. The Vms are ubuntu as well…
Now the solutions I’ve tired and what I have gathered
pulse audio is working correctly and the version is 10.0 (idk if that’s the most recent and I couldn’t find out how to update it in Qubes. (only fedora))
I looked online again and found that I could symlink the pulseaudio file with pulseaudio10.0 BUT ln -s didn’t do the trick. (The command I tired was ln -s /usr/lib64/pulseaudio10.0 /usr/lib64/pulseaudio) To go into greater detail with this, I noticed that everything else pulse audio related is symlink already. The only thing that wasn’t was pulseaudio and pulseaudio10.0
2.5 I numbered this like this because I read on reddit that if the volume prefrences where grayed out this might be a solution. The only thing is everyone who was using this solution and said it worked was using ubuntu. Even one Youtuber was using 2 ubuntu machines and one was connected though a ssh tunnel and still had audio.
I tired going on the Ubuntu VM and linking it but the only thing that VM is picking up is “dummy output”. Even tho I see the sound meter moving within the VM
I tired looking at the config files and thought “maybe I could just make one” or “maybe I could just copy one and fiddle with it so it goes with ubuntu”. I would use the word configure but what I was doing was far from that concept… Also to make matters worse, I have been putting alot of “commands” in my terminal but been using pactl and pacmd so I hope that didn’t brake anything
I looked on the forum and I saw something about installing pulseaudio-qubes-tools on my ubuntu VM but I can’t see where to install it from or even a clear post about them(I hope im not being dumb and the download is on the website because I’ve look)
I like running into problems like these beacuse you learn alot from trying to find the answer but this is ridicules!
