Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I rebuilt my system from scratch, and decided to install windows as a guest in KVM. It installed fine, but I cannot get sound working on any of the configs [ac97 - sb16]. I read most of the web pages and referred to previous version of Ubuntu.

I have modified /etc/libvirt/qemu.conf with


and made sure that myuser was a member of audio, pulse and pulse-access (maybe overkill, but just trying to get it to work).

Any Ideas?
