nearly no Sound at all

Hi, I am not 100% sure, but I think it first occurred when turning off the alarm, then the sound was/is nearly off. When I realized it the first times, a reboot or open a mp3 file worked to get the sound back. But now it is permanent. The sound is there, but very,very,very silent. When I use external speakers and make those very loud I can hear something!

And what happens when you press the volume buttons? Is it making a difference? Do you have a cover around your phone which maybe blocks the speaker? Is the sound level normal when making a normal phone call?

I think there needs to be more info for analyzing this problem.

I just tried this on my Jolla, (no need to devel-su) In Terminal, type in; '$ pulseaudio --kill' to restart process, type in; '$ pulseaudio --start' I am to understand this 'resets' the audio process but I don't know for sure. I have read that this is the same as a reset of the audio process.

did not work! without devel-su: - $pulseaudio --check -> no echo - $pulseaudio --kill, --start -> seemed to do something, but still no sound

with devel-su: - $pulseaudio --check, --kill, --start -> could not be used without --system

no I get "failed to create secure directory (/run/user/100000/pulse): no permission" every time

addition: yesterday I suddenly got sound by getting an IM, I was happy and tried to play music, this worked also, but after adjusting the volume via the hardware buttons the sound disappeared right away.

and one minute ago I tried to call someone and now I even got no sound while calling :( after reboot I got sound again, played my ringtone for testing, after 2sec sound disappeared again, but calling is ok
