    jive_alsa is still not starting for me. I'm investigating further.

    I wonder if the root problems are due to AppArmor in Ubuntu? If you aa-complain jive and jive_alsa, does it help?

    Not for me, still get "ERROR audio.output - decode_alsa_fork:180 jive_alsa failed to start" and no sound.

    Pulseaudio is a much more feature rich sound interface than ALSA, say. You can freely assign inputs and outputs, group them, etc. Also it allows you to control volume by application. It is now pretty much stable (whilst I do agree that when it was first released it was very buggy, but Ubuntu has a history of doing that at which point the products receive much more attention and get stable very quickly. This has added many great features to Linux).

    I have it working fine with pulseaudio as described above. For me removing pulseaudio would not be a viable solution.

    Unfortunately it still only works as root.

    pulse audio not needed here

    You can insist on using pulseaudio if you want, but I have gotten by just fine without it since 1994 with Linux.

    Pulseaudio makes life with multiple sound app and/or multiple sound
    devices far, far easier.

    For instance, I stream audio to one device, prelisten/cue tracks with
    another device, and talk with my honey using Skype on a bluetooth
    earpiece, all at the same time. I can set up virtual sound devices,
    seamlessly move application audio inputs and outputs from one device
    to another on the fly, adjust volume levels by application or by
    device, etc. All of it just works, and has for over a year.
