Comment 1 rick 2012-08-25 09:25:39 EDT
--an oops on the fyi, should be audio and pulse groups
Comment 2 rick 2012-08-25 09:29:03 EDT

It sounds like you are logging in in a way that doesn't grant you normal console privs. 

How are you logging in?
Comment 4 rick 2012-08-25 16:17:07 EDT
I use e16 as a desktop so no GDM...it that the issue then?...for pulseaudio as well you think?

I have always just run e16 with 'startx' and have an '.Xclients-default' in my homedir...can GDM be setup to run e16 instead of the default clutter?...and would that solve the problem?
Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2012-08-25 16:22:56 EDT
Yes, this is bug 806491

Run 'startx -- vt01' 
(provided you are on vt01, use whatever vty you are on). 

Does everything work then?

Yes, gdm will offer anything with a .desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions/ as a available session type.
Comment 6 Kevin Fenzi 2012-10-06 13:28:52 EDT
I assume startx fixed this? Please re-open if not and we can try and track it down further.
