No sound on Kali 2022.3

As of writing there are some issues with sound being disabled that can occur. To fix this is pretty easy. We first look to see if pipewire-pulse is installed.

[email protected]:~$ apt list --installed | grep pipewire-pulse

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.

pipewire-pulse/kali-rolling,now 0.3.51-1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
[email protected]:~$

If this package is installed, we will want to uninstall it and then reboot.

[email protected]:~$ sudo apt purge --autoremove pipewire-pulse
[...]
[email protected]:~$
[email protected]:~$ sudo reboot

This should then get a working audio setup.
