|0008299||Kali Linux||General Bug||public||2023-05-13 00:10||2023-05-24 01:14|
|Priority||high||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||unable to reproduce|
|Fixed in Version||2023.2|
|Summary||0008299: 0008250: No sound on kali 2023.1|
I am using Linux 6.1.0-kali7-amd64 kernel - Debian release and tried everything but still no sound after the upgrade.
I have the same issue after doing an dist-upgrade, same kernel as derp, pipewire is running via ps. Pulseaudio was running successfully before the upgrade, I was on at least a year old version.
Please paste the output of the command: « dpkg -l | grep -E 'blue[tz]|pipewire|wireplumber|pulse' ». That will help to make sure that all the required packages are installed.
user988098217490: Please paste the output of « ps -fp $(pgrep wire) » (as did the OP above). That will help to confirm that the right services are running.
derpmerp111: I see in your screenshot that you're root. Did you login as root? If so, please try to login as the unprivileged user, and check whether sound works.
Apart from that, feel free to provide more details: which desktop do you use (XFCE, GNOME, KDE) ? Do you run Kali in a VM, or baremetal ? Also please confirm that we're talking about sound over speakers or wired headset, and that there's no bluetooth device in this story. Thanks!
Running i3, Baremetal, Headphones do not work, Speakers do not work, No bluetooth devices in use.
Thanks for feedback, can you please also run this command: « apt list '?installed !?automatic' | grep pipe » ? THanks!
Thank you for the help, output below
So I ran instead
It appears the grep would not have matched anything from the apt list command.
Which I guess is a bit odd since that should have shown some of the pipewire installed packages.
Heya! So this command « apt list '?installed !?automatic' » is about listing the packages that were installed MANUALLY. I wanted to know if you installed the package pipewire-media-session manually, because I'm trying to understand why this package is still installed on your system, and wireplumber is not installed. I think that's what causes the sound issue.
If you get no output when running the command above, it means you didn't manually install any package with 'pipe' in the name. And that's, well, pretty normal. To clarify: the pipewire packages that are on your system were not installed manually, they were installed because they are dependencies of other packages.
But I'm still left wondering why wireplumber was not installed when you upgrade... Do you remember if you run "apt upgrade" or "apt full-upgrade", by any chance? (you should always run "apt full-upgrade" BTW, "apt upgrade" is not really the right command to update a system, I know it's confusing...)
Anyway, end of the explanations. What's next? I might have fixed it via the latest version of the metapackage kali-desktop-xfce.
Please upgrade your system again « apt update && apt full-upgrade ». Pay attention to the output before hitting Enter. You should see that pipewire-media-session will be removed, wireplumber will be installed, and kali-desktop-xfce (among many other packages) will be upgraded. Is it the case? If so, confirm, lets the system upgrade, then log out and log back in. Does sound work now? If not, try a full restart. Does the sound work?
Thanks very much for following up so far and helping to troubleshoot the issue. This is much appreciated!
I ran apt upgrade instead of apt full-upgrade, and thank you for that pointer I have been doing it wrong all along.
I will try your recommendations now.
Interesting to see the metapackage you mention showing up as being kept back, not exactly sure why that would happen. Probably a lack of understanding of apt on my part :)
Will report back after install completes and I re-login.
Logging out and logging back in did not get sound to work,
but a full reboot did!
Thank you for the patience and detailed advice. Now I can listen to Lofi again haha.
So indeed, this "kali-desktop-xfce has been kept back" issue was reported yesterday, and I think I fixed it. But at the time you tested it, the latest package was not available in the repo yet.
If you try again to run « sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -V » (note the -V for verbose, it will show package versions), it should now upgrade the package kali-desktop-xfce to 2023.2.11. No more « kept back ».
Many many thanks for following up until the end user988098217490, whoever you are :D It really helped a lot. This transition from pulseaudio to pipewire was more tricky than it seemed, but I think now we solved all the issues.
I'm closing the ticket. Thanks again for your help!
BTW: if kali-desktop-xfce is still "held back" with version 2023.2.11, then you can try « sudo apt install kali-desktop-xfce ». By asking explicitly to upgrade this package (yes, 'apt install' will also upgrade packages if they are already installed), apt will try harder to propose a solution. Watch out for the output thought, if apt wants to remove a ton of packages, don't hit Enter...
