I am trying to use an audio editing/recording program named Audacity.
When I start the program, I an error saying that it failed to initialise

set permissions to 666. Now if I first run 'killall artsd' Audacity
starts with no errors. The problem that I have is that I did not have to
do these things with a previous install of my os. Any ideas as to how I
can just run the program without the work around?
If you joined #debian, the dpkg bot would tell you (as part of unix
lessons), not to screw with permissions. What you really want to do is
add your user to the audio group.
