Gnome Volume Control Problems


For some reason the gnome volume control cannot find my soundblaster live card. I've tried both the oss driver and the alsa one. Both drivers work fine in kde.. Is this a known problem and how can I fix it? Even when running gnome, gaim seems to play its sounds fine but its just the gnome volume control says

Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found

Anyone?
It's probably a permissions thing - check /dev/dsp and /dev/snd/* and make sure they are all read/writable by all users.
