Hello all,

I have a machine. One user logs in (using gnome) and has sound. The second user logs in (also using gnome) and does not. When the second user double-clicks on the volume applet he gets the following error:

The volume control did not find any elements and/or devices to control. 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?
