I just bought a wireless Astro Gaming A20 headphone (that uses a usb adapter) and everything worked fine in the beginning but after a restart the headphone didn't give any sound but it's still visible in lsusb and the headphone is active and is connected to the usb adapter but settings say's it was unpluged. And when i used the pulseaudio command i get a error.

E: [pulseaudio] pid.c: Daemon already running.
E: [pulseaudio] main.c: pa_pid_file_create() mislukt.


Has anyone a solution for this? I have already tried to reset pulseaudio.

Btw, I use the KDE NEON distro.

Edit: I have solved the problem by disabling pulseaudio!

What pulseaudio command? Do these headphones use Bluetooth? What's the output of
Code:
 systemctl status bluetooth.service
I don't think this has anything to do with pulseaudio, but probably that the required service isn't started/enabled at boot.
