For future reference, since this is an applet-specific question, it needs to go into the Awn Extras answer tracker.

It sounds like there's something wrong with your ALSA setup rather than the Volume Control applet itself, if it works as root but not as a normal user. I would ask in the Fedora forums or their IRC channel(s) as to how to fix that for your system.

Can you help with this problem?
