It's not exactly the same thing. On Ubuntu, after a fresh install I
have only the Gnome Desktop environment. The default settings for audio
mixer was the Esound daemon (esd). Using the gstreamer-property tool, a
graphical gui, I set the sound server to ALSA. Neither more nor less.
On your Kubuntu, you should have the KDE desktop environment. I think
that you can check the sound server settings from KDE contro center
finding something about artsd, alsa, ...
Just one thing: check for the mixer and verify that all channels than
you will use are not muted or the level is setted to zero.
