yes, you need alsa configure. but that wont solve the audio devices  
issue, at least on my machine.
it would be great if you can please test audios too:

1.  build the "Juce Demo" app  in juce/extras/Juce\ Demo/build/linux
2. start the demo app, select the Audio demo from the Demo menu
3. Try to play a wav file using the file player in the audio demo pane.
if you can do that then i should be able to figure out why its not  
working in grace or why it doesnt work on my linux box. if the demo  
doesnt work then its a general juce problem that i can ask about in  
the juce forum.

please build the juce deom
