Which OS are you running? Which audio device are you using; jack, hdmi, or usb audio?

I had no sound issue after installing TinkerOS 1.9
Sound was routed to incorrect device. Just start playback open pavucontrol and change devices at Output tab

I installed TinkerOS 1.9. No sound via Audio Jack and HDMI port.
when i try to change it by pavucontrol.....it says "connection to pulseaudio failed automatic retry in 5s".

some where on web, i dound pavucontrol needs pulseaudio for proper functioning. pulseaudio is not able to run as it also error out.

Any clue on this.

I am able to figure out why i m getting following errors when i run pavucontrol:

*******************************
inaro@linaro-alip:~$ pavucontrol
** (pavucontrol:1140): WARNING **: Error retrieving accessibility bus address: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.a11y.Bus was not provided by any .service files
********************************


I am able to correct this problem by installing the at-spi2-core accessibility core, which is the parent of org.a11y.Bus:

sudo apt-get install at-spi2-core

But pavucontrol still says "connection to pulseaudio failed. Automatic retry in 5s".

I am able to resolve pavucontrol issue by doing all this:

**********************************
sudo apt-get purge pulseaudio
sudo apt-get clean && sudo apt-get autoremove
Reboot. Open a terminal again and type (ignore any errors with the rm command):

rm -r ~/.pulse ~/.asound* ~/.pulse-cookie ~/.config/pulse
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload
pavucontrol

***********************************

After that my PulseAudio Volume Control is working. However i am not able to redirect sound to Audio Jack and HDMI port. there is no activity on OUtput devices tab in Pulse Audio Volume control.
