Ubuntu Sound is spotty at best.

2013-02-26  Source: Original Site  Category:Ubuntu  Views:0 


Hi, recent Ubuntu installee. My sound sometime cuts out for no reason. I'm playing along musics going, pidgins making noise, next thing i know no sound.

I think it might have to do with java things open in firefox. even when i close firefox though, the sound problems persist.
