No sound at all from new install of kxstudio

Hi, a very basic and hopefully easy question. Just installed kxstudio and getting no sound at all from anything I play or run. Not sure if I’ve over analyzed things but I’m stumped. Probably being too dependent on auto configuration having been using windows so much lately. I’m connecting through the spdif outlet to a receiver. Thanks.

Installed kxstudio in what ? … Ubuntu ?

Did you have audio before installing kxstudio ? … and if so, was that also via spdif ?

[EDIT]

Or instead of adding it to say Ubuntu or Debian, did you just install kxstudio and the OS at the same time from their LiveDVD ?

If so, it’s Ubuntu 14.04.2 with the KDE4 desktop right ?
