    Can't start alsamixer as normal user.
    Code:
    cannot open mixer: Permission denied
    I had to be root to start alsamixer.

    Do you have any sound at all? Try following the advice in this guide. (Specifically, the sound tests via the CLI commands listed there).

    If these work ok, this may be a multimedia config issue instead:

    Do you have sound in other applications? Do you hear systemsounds?

    Please post the output of

    Code:
    groups
    [as user, not as root.]

    Thats interesting. Of course it should not be the case.

    What happens if you add your user to group 'audio' and then log out of Linux entirely, and then log back in to Linux (and restart your Desktop GUI) and then try to start alsamixer?

    To see how to do that, read step#6 here: SDB:Audio troubleshooting - openSUSE

    What's the command to add user to audio group?
    Is it ok?
    Code:
    usermod -G audio <user>

    You should check first which groups you belong to since for now group issues are just a guess. Again:

    Code:
    groups
    ...as user.
