KMix can't be found when I'm signed into my personal username
I guess I should begin by saying that I don't know anything about Linux...yet.
That said, I just recently installed SUSE Linux 9.3 on my desktop. It's really great, but there are some annoying problems. One of them is the fact that sound won't play when I'm signed in to my personal username.
When I installed Linux, I set up KDE to autologgin to a generic user. In this username, the sound works fine. When, however, I "Switch User" and loggin to my username, the sound doesn't work. When I clicked on the KMix icon on the bottom bar, It said that KMix could not be found--rather than pop up with a volume-control window, as it does in the generic user. Once, the sound did work while I was logged into my username, but I don't remember the circumstances, and haven't been able to reproduce it.
Thanks for the help,
