What session manager are you using? The error described, typically means
that upon login the audio devices were not reassigned to the user. If
you do an ls -l /dev and ls -l /dev/snd, the owner should be the logged in
user. I know Entrance does not properly re-assign the ownership.
The other possibility is the user is not in the audio group of /etc/group
