    Ubuntu Secondary User Sound


    Alright I have a problem with the other users on my system not having the permissions to use /dev/dsp (the sound device). They can easily solve this by typing "sudo chmod 666 /dev/dsp" But I'm looking for an "on boot" solution.

    Anybody know the scripts I need to edit?

    Are they in the audio group? If not try adding them to it
    Code:
    usermod -G all,your,old,groups,audio username
    Get the list of old groups with
    Code:
    groups username
    and then list them comma seperated after the -G with audio being the last one. Don't just use -G audio since this will lose the existing groups.
