hi,
Just thought I'd post this again coz, couldn't solve it last time.
When I load Ubuntu, sound works fine, and then when I open browser, which plays a sample, the sound on all other applications mutes, and I have no idea how to restore it..
Interesting to note is that, sound embedded in flash in firefox doesn't seem to steal the sound. But the sounds for example, used in googletalk to remind you of an instant message will steal the sound.
Weird :(
