Installed Pulse Audio, accidentally broke Kdenlive! Help!

Registered Member
I am using Ubuntu 18.04 with Kdenlive 20.04.

I recently installed PulseAudio with
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get pulseaudio

Shortly after I tried to access kdenlive which threw this error.

Code: Select all
 Could not create the video preview window.
    There is something wrong with your Kdenlive install or your driver settings, please fix it.

I now receive this error each time I attempt to open kdenlive.

Things I've tried.

1) Accessed /home/user/snap/kdenlive/current/.config and renamed the files and folders
Each time kdenlive is started the files are recreated but the error persists.

2) Uninstalled and purged kdenlive and PusleAudio(since the issue started by installing PulseAudio), removed old snaps and cleaned the cache.

3) Re-installed and the error persists.

I'm not sure what to do here to get kdenlive working again. Any advice would be helpful.

Interestingly, I have also installed kdenlive Version 17.12.3 which is unaffected by the driver problems affecting version 20.04 and seems to be working well.
