or else ...), then I hear no sound,
but when I switch to console with Strg+Alt+F1...6
then I hear the sound on the console.
the same effect after reinstalling 2nd time.
I've Ubuntu 12.04 tls, and intel-hda onboard sound.
In the kde menu, there is an icon for master volume. It's the one you need. Expand the Window that comes up and raise the master volume to maximum. Use your speaker knobs or whatever app your using to control the volume. The one you need is buried in the menues, and it's exact location differs in each version of kde.
Other then that, kde is a fine environment which can be customized more easily then any other environment.
If kubuntu just won't cooperate, try downloading linux mint 13 with KDE. It's very polished and doesn't have that glitch
