No Sound in Ubuntu 7.10, Using Realtek Soundcard
I am very new to Linux and to this forum.
I have just installed Ubuntu 7.10 and am dual booting with Windows XP and everything is working fine.

You may need to be root.
sudo gedit <etc>
I don't know for sure that this will fix the problem, but it has been strongly suggested as a good fix in the bug reports.
Thank you again Simon,
