problem on your own:
crw-rw---- 1 root audio
Make sure that all users who you want to use sound are in the *audio*
group. And don't forget that changes to the group configuration only
become active after the user logged out.

Probably, as you use KDE, you want to switch to KDM. This will also allow
you to shut down from the login manager screen. Do
apt-get install kdm
and select to use KDM when debconf asks you which login manager to use.
