Sound does not start in XubuntuI am very happy with Xubuntu but I have a problem with the sound applet that not even version 8.04 of Ubuntu has managed to solve.

It turns out that randomly the sound stops working. As much as I place the applet in the upper panel, every so often it disappears without there being a record in any of the logs for the reason.

Fortunately, I have managed to find a remedy to the problem that at least lets me breathe but I am really starting to get tired of so much trouble starting programs like Firefox that have had me so entertaining these days.

To prevent it from happening again we must select the sound applet

but instead of pressing the add button we must drag it to the panel in which we want it to appear
