Hi, @TheDead, you were right about the external monitor, you made me tought that there is something missing on my BIOS configuration and at last I remember what is it.
I am ashamed because I ckeck the BIOS settings and i have the video and sound card in PCI instead of on board, because I tried to install another video card unsuccessfully and forgot to change this setting.

Although the change was fine and the output of
sudo pulseaudio --kill whas done, the problem persist with the audio.

This is the output of the the following terminal command:
pulseaudio --dump-conf

The other output I posted above are valid.

I could add the output of the comand lspci -v

Hi,
I found the issue for my audio card, after a couple of weeks the libasound2 package was updated and since the I lost the output sound.

I tried to downgrade the package but I recieve a message that I have broken dependencies unmet.

Afterwards, I installed libasound2-dev and run a program suggested by the website https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/PulseAudio/Backends/ALSA/BrokenDrivers/

I followed the instructions and send the report. I tried my best.

Regards

Thank you for your answer.

I tried sudo pulseaudio -k and the following message apperared.
 [pulseaudio] main.c: The daemon could not be stopped. The process does not exists.

--- End quote ---

There's no need to run this command with sudo
--- Code: ---pulseaudio -k
--- End code ---
and then
--- Code: ---pulseaudio --start
--- End code ---
will do just fine, pulseaudio is a user's service not a system's one, thus it can be managed by your user without sudo.


--- Quote ---I also tried,
systemctl status pulseaudio-enable-autospawn.service
● pulseaudio-enable-autospawn.service
     Loaded: masked (Reason: Unit pulseaudio-enable-autospawn.service is masked>
     Active: inactive (dead)

--- End quote ---

Here, you're just asking systemd for the status of the service, and it has no effect on it, in short, it is an informative command to query whether a service is enabled, disabled, running, active, loaded, dead, inactive, but it doesn't change its status or solve anything. BTW, that service is masked for a reason, meaning it is disabled by default, and you should leave it as is. What you probably want to do here is
--- Code: ---systemctl --user restart pulseaudio.service
--- End code ---
Read man systemctl and here https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Systemctl


--- Quote ---At last I run,
journalctl -f -t pulseaudio and the following message appeared:
may 10 09:23:23 jochoa-pc pulseaudio[2251]: GetManagedObjects() failed: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

This one should be run either as root or with sudo
--- Code: ---sudo journalctl -f -t pulseaudio
--- End code ---
since the dir where it gets the input /var/log it's owned by root, otherwise you get that error.  Read here https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Systemd/Journal

What's the output of
--- Code: ---pactl info
--- End code ---
this should tell you whether pulseaudio is running or not.

Hi @Moltke ,
Thank you for answer my question.
The problem is described in the following post:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/PulseAudio/Troubleshooting#Pulse_overwrites_ALSA_settings

Daemon is already running.
Pulseaudio maybe started by multiple times.
I checked the files but I have no idea on what I have to change in order to solve the problem.
I wish whether you could help me to fix the problem.

Regards,
