For a couple of days I'm facing a weird issue before that everything was working fine but now the Pulse Audio won't autostart at boot and the sound icon is missing from a panel as well. When I try to go to the Sound Settings there's no any Output or Input device listed, neither onboard audio nor my discrete sound card. So I execute this command in terminal:
rm -r ~/.pulse ~/.pulse-cookie ~/.config/pulse
And the sound appears right away. I tried to reinstall pulseaudio but it doesn't seem to help. Pulse Audio is listed in Settings / Autostart Applications and I din't make any changes to it.
What could be causing this?
Just to notice the sound icon is visible at user login window.
