Okay, thanks. Probably I had done that by GUI on the occasions when it worked better before.

By the way, is there a better GUI to change the default sink/source? The only GUI way I could find is to open the pa applet, which has "Default sink" and "Default source" in the indicator menu. But, I see only Default and Other [1], and to use Other, I have to type in the exact name. It's "possible" but less than ideal vis-à-vis usability, especially if pa is targeted for typical consumer-grade applications, whose users don't want to have to learn the pa CLI to do basic configuration :)

Quite possibly I'm missing something.
