I recently upgraded my VMWare Fusion from 2.x to 3.1 and was running Ubuntu 10.04. I had not problems until the upgrade at which point the sound is not working at all. It was fine in VMWare 2.x. I installed the VMWare Tools but it did not fix it. I would appreciate if someone could throw light on the issue.

There are many, many layers in the audio stack where things could have gone awry. I recommend that you use ubuntu-bug alsa-base from within your VMWare Fusion 3.1 instance. – Daniel T Chen Nov 27 '10 at 2:50

VMWARE Fusion is for MacOSX.

I run VMWARE Workstation 7.1.1 and sounds works fine on Ubuntu emulated instances. ;)
