By commenting the lines from /etc/pulse/default.pa

#.ifexists module-switch-on-connect.so
#load-module module-switch-on-connect
#.endif

And reinstalling pulse audio and alsa-base as here:

apt-get remove --purge pulseaudio
rm -rf /etc/pulse
apt-get install pulseaudio
reboot

I managed to get the audio again, but I cannot control it with the
volume controls of my keyboard, neither with thw sound tray icon(that
completely dissapeared)
