I now see 3 pulse audio applets in my system tray.  Yes, 3 of them.  On
them I can set the default server, sink and source to... default, like
to Fedora Forum instructions say.   However, I still get no sound.   I
even logged into a gnome session and tried the system-config-soundcard
application... no joy, however I am still playing with settings.
