The pulseaudio changeover didn't affect how permissions were handled --
that was all about moving from using pam_console to letting ConsoleKit
manage it.

Even though the ownership of the devices is still root, ConsoleKit
should be adding your user to the ACLs on the devices.

Is the "ConsoleKit" service started?  It needs to be running.

Does running "getfacl" on those devices list you in the entry?  If
things are working correctly, it should.

How are you starting your X session?  Whatever's being run needs to
register your session with ConsoleKit.  I know that GDM and xinit do it
correctly, and if I'm reading #228111 right, KDM does, too.

And what do you see when you run "ck-list-sessions"?  You should see an
entry that looks something like this ("..." being unimportant things
which are likely to differ between our systems -- the important thing is
that the session associated with your x11-display is marked "active"):
		uid = ...
		realname = ...
		seat = 'Seat1'
		session-type = ...
		active = TRUE
		x11-display = ':0'
		x11-display-device = '/dev/tty7'
		display-device = ''
		remote-host-name = ''
		is-local = TRUE
		on-since = ...
