Sound issue on Xubuntu running Fluxbox

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.
