June 13th, 2009, 08:28 PM

I am on an Intel motherboard(DG45FC) with a Intel 82801JR (ICH10R) sound card with Ubuntu 9.04 and Kernel 2.6.28-11-generic.

Here is lsmod | grep snd

When I am logged into a regular account(non-Fluxbox) sounds works perfectly in all application like Firefox, Flash VLC etc ... but the moment I log into the fluxbox account there is no sound except in gnome-sound-properties panel when I select oss analog and hit test, there is sound, but no where else!!!](*,)

The sound-settings-properties when logged into the non-Fluxbox account are all set to ALSA and everything works but if I set that in the Fluxbox account there is no sound including the test sound.

I have made sure in alsamixer nothing is muted and all volumes are turned up. And I have tried all the audio output ports on the sound card.

Also, in the non-Fluxbox account the master volume does not do change the volume, the PCM channel does. why?

Thanks for any help,

This makes me think I need to load something in the start up script for Fluxbox but I do not know what.
