No sound with normal user

Postby Dimple » 2004-03-20 07:17

I'm trying to get my sound working. I came a long way but there's only one little problem (at least I hope it's little)
When I login as root I get sound but when I login as a normal user I don't.

I think it has something to do with permissions. But when it has, which files do I chmod and which parameters (755 or 644 or...) do give?

Or is there something else wrong?

This should be easy to fix. Open up a console and become root by typing su, and then enter your root password. Once you have the root prompt (#) type:

adduser (your normal user name) audio

Leave out the parentheses when you type your user name.

Hope this helps.
