[NBLUG/talk] Sharing sound hardware on Kubuntu?

It seems that when my parents are logged in simultaneously, only the
first user to log in is able to use the sound card.  Looking at the
sound preferences, it looks like the second user is most likely using
a secondary audio output that doesn't have any speakers hooked up to
it, since the primary output is locked by the first user.

Does that sound like how it's supposed to work?  And if so, does
anyone know how to allow two users to share a sound card?

They're running Kubuntu, and their system was fully up-to-date as of
maybe a month ago.

Thanks in advance.
