Thread: No sound on KDE4 Opensuse 11.1 RC1

    Default No sound on KDE4 Opensuse 11.1 RC1


    Upgraded to 11.1 RC1 over last weekend. Everything seems to be working
    fine except for sound on KDE4. When I login to KDE3.5, sound works on
    all the applications and I hear the login sound too. When I run a KDE4
    application while in KDE3.5 (such as KDE4-JuK), there is no sound on it
    either.

    Can someone help me debug this issue?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm having the same problem. On logging in to KDE4 it pops up a message
    about it not having a driver for for my sound. However, while poking
    around looking whilst logged in as root in a parallel session,for a log
    that contained the message (which disappeared before I could write it
    down) the sound worked, and it worked in my existing session as well
    when I returned to it, so I suspect it might be a permissions issue.

    Cheers,

    Rod

    Thank you for your response.

    So, you mean to say that sound works for you when you login to KDE4 as
    root?

    Ignore that question. I tested it on my setup and I see the same
    behavior. When I login to KDE4 as root, I get sound. But no sound as
    user. I'm not sure why. The user is already a member of the "audio"
    group. I also made the user a member of "pulse-**" group hoping it would
    make some difference but no luck.
