CentOS 6 - No sound for non-root users


Working with CentOS 6.6. When logged on as root, sound works fine and 'Preferences -> Sound -> Hardware' shows the 'Internal SOund" device. When logged on as normal user, no sound and 'Preferences -> Sound -> Hardware' offeres no choices. What do I need to twiddle to enable sound for normal (i.e. non-root) users?

Audio group

Hi,
One thing to try is to add your userid to the "audio" group. That may be the cause of not seeing the devices.

Good Luck!
