I'm not a Kubuntu user, but in Gnome it is important to make sure that

      * The PulseAudio daemon is started. In Gnome this is done through
        a compatibility layer that simulates esd, and therefore the
        checkbox in System > Preferences > Sound > tab Sounds > Enable
        software sound mixing (ESD)
      * If possible, the preferences of all apps that use sound are set
        to use PulseAudio
      * The user is a member of the pulseaudio* groups
