Ubuntu: Kubuntu permanent install won't attach sound card


I installed Kubuntu Live version and sound card visible in the volume/mixer panel. After installing the permanent version I have a dummy output where my sound card should be, therefore no sound. I re-installed the live version three times and then to permanent but the same problem each time. There is a very brief error on boot up to the permanent version that says:

error. cannot attach card default. no such file or directory.  

I'm running Kubuntu 12.04 on a Mac G4 PPC with no other OS.

I'm very new to Linux. I am able to follow instructions to help resolve this, but I'm not familiar with the OS.

Unable to paste into the terminal. I have checked very carefully and there are no typing errors. This is certain :)

When I type the command Iḿ then prompted for my [sudo] password for rob. On entering this the error returned is ¨sudo: rm/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local.conf: command not found¨


Recent versions of Ubuntu have inherited a bug from Debian, where snd-aoa modules are incorrectly blacklisted. If this is the case, the easiest thing to do is to delete the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local.conf file that is generated by the installer ( sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.local.conf ). Also, delete any references to sound modules in the /etc/modules file and see if it works without them.
