I and several others have had similar permissions problems with gizmo
which actually said there was no audio device. I did strace and
submitted it to the forum, but the mystery continued. Then I had a
brainwave, tried it as root and it was AOK. So I added the user to audio
in /etc/group, also did the same for video a while back when kaffeine
complained about no video, though OK with audio.
It's a strange behaviour, stuff used to come up with ownerships in /dev
of e.g <user>:audio, then quite a while ago on Mandriva and more
recently on openSUSE, they are "root:audio", so the user can't get to
them. Don't know whether it's a bug or feature, but it's a gotcha. Most
apps work, but there is always one or two that experience the problem.
It's only last week I got this problem when I fired up gizmo the first
time in months.
Without the changes my DVB card would complain when kaffeine is fired up.
