Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I'm sure to many of you this will sound like a familiar complaint, but I have searched for solutions and nothing has worked. It doesn't help that I haven't managed to consistently use Linux for the past year, due to my college network's lack of Linux-friendliness.
As the title says, I'm running the latest Xubuntu with Fluxbox as my window manager. All applications have sound when I run them as root (sudo or su). If I run anything as nonroot, there goes my sound. I have control of the alsamixer as both user and root, but changes to the mixer show no result as user. This is happening with Parole, Chromium, and Frogatto. I wanted to try multiple applications to make sure one was not the exception to the rule. Another thing I want to note, I have made sure to add the user account to the audio group, and still nothing.
Any ideas? I put this under the newbie category because I really don't know what the issue is here. Thus exists proof of my newbiness. I'm hoping to become more Linux inclined now that I have the opportunity. Thank you all in advance.
