pulseaudio: I know nothing and hope to keep my life that way. :)

If the aplay command responds then you have ALSA installed. (I 
thought ALSA and pulseaudio were incompatible.)

Try this:

alsactl init

Also in KControl->Sound & Multimedia->Sound System, verify the 
sound system is enabled in the General tab, then look in the 
Hardware tab for the audio device selection.
