    suggests to start the pulseaudio demon a la: /etc/init.d/pulseaudio start
    
    
    However:
    
    
    $ which pulseaudio
    $ 
    $ ls -l /etc/init.d/pulseaudio
    ls: cannot access '/etc/init.d/pulseaudio': No such file or directory
    
    
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/pulseaudio start
    sudo: /etc/init.d/pulseaudio: command not found
    
    
    $ ps aux | grep pulseaudio
    knoppix   4871  0.0  0.0   6352   832 pts/4    S+   06:53   0:00 grep --colour=auto pulseaudio
    
    
    How can you start pulseaudio (or (re)install it?) if needed?

    Hello!

    I suggest you open an LXTerminal and issue the following commands.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install pulseaudio pavucontrol
    mkdir -p ~/.config/pulse
    echo "autospawn=yes" > ~/.config/pulse/client.conf
    echo "daemon-binary = /usr/bin/pulseaudio" >> ~/.config/pulse/client.conf
    restartx
    Use the PulseAudio volume control from the "Multimedia" menu to adjust settings.
