im running ghostbsd 10.1. most stuff is working well, but if i log in as a non root user, there is no sound from applications. only from system. window button clicks, etc, seem to work fine, but videos in firefox do not have sound. If i log in as root all sound works in all applications. assuming some sort of permissions issue, but unsure what group i need to add myself too or...? please advise. thanks!
 ok it appears that it works on some web sites, but not others. youtube, for instance, no sound on videos. but youtube does have sound if i am logged in as root.
Need support for GhostBSD. Ask here if your question does not fit elsewhere.

ok this doesnt really explain why sound worked on youtube when i was root, but not my unprivileged user...but...I opened a root shell and deinstalled firefox and then recompiled it with only ALSA and not pulseaudio and now sound works for my normal user account. /shrug. just through i would post that in case someone else was having an issue with sound/firefox.
