The Gnome sound applet does not startup when logging in as user: "root". If you try to launch the menu item: "System => Preference => Sound" the following hanging dialog will appear: "Waiting for sound system to respond".


  • Go to the "System => Preference => Startup Applications" menu entry.
  • Make sure you are in the "Startup Programs" tab.
  • Click on the "Add" button.
  • Fill in the fields similar to this:
 ** Name: Pulseaudio daemon
 ** Command: /usr/bin/pulseaudio
 ** Comment: Start the pulseaudio sound daemon...
  • Logout and then relogin and the Gnome sound applet should appear.
