  • Is your user member of the audio group? – CL. May 9 '15 at 6:56

1) Check if the user is part of the audio group:

id <user>

If not, add the user to the group with:

usermod -aG audio <user>

A logout/login will probably be necessary to re-activate

2) If you have a /dev/audio device, try copying any smallish (about 50kB) to that device:

cat file > /dev/audio

if you hear anything, then audio is working. If you do not have /dev/audio, you might have a bad configuration.
