Or maybe: Menu->Settings->Settings-manager->System->Session and Startup->Tab Application and autostart->scroll to Pulseaudio.  ;)

There is also a run-level editor: bum
In the repository. Run as root sudo or gksu.

Repo says:
Quote
Boot-Up Manager is a graphical tool to allow easy configuration
of init services in user and system runlevels, as far as changing
Start/Stop services priority.
But carefull with this one.. :)

Hello!

I believe

Code: [Select]
pulseaudio -k
will also 'kill' it until you reboot or run it again...

Stopping Pulseaudio:

"Or maybe: Menu->Settings->Settings-manager->System->Session and Startup->Tab Application and autostart->scroll to Pulseaudio."

THIS SAVED ME SO MUCH TROUBLE!

Now I can hear VLC and Youtube without having to download Google Chrome.
NEVER BEFORE HAVE I BEEN ABLE TO USE FIREFOX AND ACTUALLY HEAR YOUTUBE!
It was explained to me that Firefox no longer supported whatever Youtube uses for sound and that I was better off to use Google Chrome as it was the
proprietor of Youtube in a merger.  After trying 7 other distros to get my sound back, I recalled another conversation in another forum of another linux distro that it was best for my particular sound card to disable Pulseaudio. 

I had sound from VLC at first but Youtube was choppy.  THEN I LOST ALL SOUND WHEN I INSTALLED UPDATES FROM THE MAIN MENU! Even Chrome would not support Youtube audio.  So after 3 days of trying distros and forum searching I was sent this :

"Or maybe: Menu->Settings->Settings-manager->System->Session and Startup->Tab Application and autostart->scroll to Pulseaudio."

In VLC I switched to ALSA sound use S/PDIF when available, HDA Intel MID, ALC272X Analog front speakers and disabled Pulseaudio from main menu  and now everything is audible.  Even Youtube with Firefox after a clean LL 2.0 install and recent updates, without Google Chrome. 

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this solution to those using older Acer Aspire One netbooks.
Mine is a AO751h-1279.  Linux Lite 2.0 gives me 7 hours+ 40 minutes on a full charge on a 9 cell aftermarket battery.
Not really sure where to post this, so I will post it here and hope some forum Admin might find an appropriate place to post it where this fix can best reach the most people.

Thanks rijnsma

I did fight a lot of battles with sound in Linux, thera.
It is so bare-bone organised and confusing... ::)

I just installed Linux Lite 2.0 32bit on my Dell 3000 desktop alongside Zorin 9 Lite. In Zorin I don't have to worry about Pulseaudio. I just have to go into Alsamixer set my settings and that's it.

I'd love to be able to do the same thing in Linux Lite so that Pulseaudio is never part of the equation. Alsamixer for me seems to be much easier for me.

Any suggestions on what I can do?
