If I log in as user1 in fluxbox I get no audio for flash plugins in firefox. If I log in as user2 in KDE I get sound but it is delayed and stutters. If I log in to either fluxbox or KDE as root I get perfect audio in flash in firefox.
I have changed permissions on /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.6/plugins folder to be:
drwxrwxrwx root users
and both of my users are members of users.
In KDE I added "artsdsp" before the firefox command. Without this I had no sound. I also adjusted the sound system auto suspend to 2 seconds and have tried selecting Run with the highest possible priority but to no avail.
I am running Slackware 10.2 kernel 2.4.31
Why does flash audio work flawlessly as root but not as users? All other audio works fine for users, just not flash.
