I have a machine. One user logs in (using gnome) and has sound. The

This means that either you don't have the right GStreamer plugins
installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured. You can
remove the volume control from the panel by right-clicking the speaker
icon on the panel and selecting "Remove from panel" from the menu.
Anyone have any advice on how to track down this problem? I figure it
has to be something in the second users' environment or dot files, but I
haven't a clue where to start.
sudo adduser nosounduser sound
nosounduser is already a part of the audio group
Is there anything else that I can check?
