OK I see you use kubuntu, doesn't Pulse come default? Sorry I only
use Ubuntu (although I'm prolly gonna drop to Mint or debian as I hate
Unity). If it comes default, you may need to start a fresh install.
I mean as long as you don't have anything set up specific for your
machine should be easy. I always partition my drive that 40 gigs for
OS, rest for /home, this was I can format / to reinstall if needed
cause I was messing with things so bad. I like to experiment with
things, and you can really F up things when you do.
