I'm getting no sound from my Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop install on Parallels 6. I have enabled User sound, and checked my inputs and outputs. I am using an iMac 2.66GHz i5.

Is your iMac running Ubuntu or Mac OS X? –  Stefano Palazzo Jan 5 '11 at 6:11

I don't normally suggest alternatives in questions like this, but try using Virtual Box instead. Parallels is a nice bit of software, but Virtual Box works better with Linux as far as I know.
