Hmm, it's obviously not my day.

I've installed exaile on my laptop running xubuntu 16.04 and it starts
up OK and the interface looks the sort of thing I want. However it
fails when asked to actually play something with:-

    Playback error encountered!
    playsink0: Possible audio device error, is it plugged in?

Other programs seem able to make noises so it would seem I do have
sound, just that exaile doesn't think so.
