I don't know if this is perfectly right, but it works for me:
Try setting your TERM to xterm-color. 
E.g. put a line 

*XTerm*TermName: xterm-color

in your ~/.Xresources

Have you installed a filter for your printer? What you see printed
is a postscipt file as text.
You should install and configure magicfilter or apsfilter.

This is a permissions problem. 
My solution on my machine here:
I have a group called "audio". All my sound devices like /dev/audio*,  
/dev/dsp* etc. can be used by members of group "audio":
For example:
$ ls -l /dev/audio*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     audio          11 Mar 19  1997 /dev/audio -> /dev/audio0
crw--w--w-   1 root     audio     14,   4 Mar 19  1997 /dev/audio0
crw--w--w-   1 root     audio     14,  20 Mar 19  1997 /dev/audio1
               ^        ^
	       owner    group

So I put everyone, who wants to use sound in "audio" by:
$ adduser quake audio           
This adds the user "quake" to group "audio". Now "quake" can quake!
