[K12OSN] Sound Not Working on my Linux Account

Hi Everyone!

In Hermon, we've just upgraded our Linux servers district-wide to FC2
(4.1.1). We have managed to get sound to work on one of our terminals!
However, I can't seem to duplicate the process on my Linux account. I've
followed the steps from the web and:

1. The lts.conf file is correctly configured to ESD and works, because we
have one Linux account that plays audio in XMMS correctly. (It's set to
ESound, and in Multimedia Systems Selector, it's set to ESD. Works great!!

But on my Linux account, and any additional acount tested on the same
terminal can't play audio! When I go to Multimedia Systems Selector and
choose ESD, I get the error "Failed to construct test pipeline for 'ESD -
Enlightenment Sound Daemon'". What gives?

There must be some setting in my account that I am missing. One accoun
works (on the same terminal), but mine doesn't. Where do I go to turn
audio on? We use GNOME here.

Thank You!
