Ubuntu 10.04 Tip: How to fix Waiting for sound system to respond problem
When you have Ubuntu 10.04, and you login as root, you cannot change the sound volume or settings with the sound applet in the gnome-panel.
Go to System->Preferences -> Startup Applications
Make sure you're in the tab ‘Startup programs'
-> Click on ‘Add'
Name: Pulseaudio daemon
Comment: Start the sound daemon
Now logout, then login again
Works like a charm! Thank you guys, this is useful stuff.
One only needs to download the Adobe Flash Player platform support library for Esound and OSS from the Ubuntu Software Center to hear sound. Once sound is confirmed(via youtube, vizeo, etc…) this software can then be deleted with full sound benefits still being achieved. This is great for Newbies and I hope it will help everyone else suffering from this problem also…
Most Important – Make sure the volume applet is not muted in top panel afterwards…
