Lost my sound

From: Andrew Young <mail@...>

Hello

Using Ubuntu 14.04 and TDE 14.

Yesterday after running sudo apt-get autoremove I was suddenly presented 
with an option to close or disable an X server (I think). I assumed it 
had something to do with a tty, at least not the desktop so I said yes. 
After selecting yes, the desktop disappeared and I was presented with 
tty1. I logged in and started the desktop with startx.

At least I had a working Trinity desktop! However the volume control has 
a small red circle with a white cross partially covering it, hovering 
the mouse pointer over it causes a pop up to appear "Mixer cannot be found".

As you can see from the log below I tried installing and reinstalling 
Alsa and Pulseaudio, even Arts, but still the sound didn't work.

On IRC Slavek suggested "sudo aptitude install tdebase-trinity 
--without-recommends", after installing aptitude, it installed a few 
packages, but after a restart still no sound.

However "sudo startx" did have sound!

Eventually I gave up and reinstalled Ubuntu/Trinity.

Next time what should I do to restore sound?
