No sound in KDE except in System Settings test

Postby bleakcabal » Thu Nov 12, 2009 7:02 pm

Hi, I used to hear sound in KDE but not anymore.

If I go in the System Settings, MultiMedia menu and I "Test" my audio output device, I'm hearing sound loud and clear. In VLC media player, games and FireFox (youtube videos) I can't hear anything...

For Mp3s, they play with amarok, but not VLC and MPlayer.

I opened KMixer and I don't see anything muted...

Anyone know what I can do to fix this?

I did :

id bleakcabal


This showed me what goups I belonged to. Audio, wasn't one of them.

I then did

su


To log in as root.
Then I used the usermod command to add bleakcabal to the audio group.
usermod -G -a audio bleakcabal
