Description lschorle 1999-11-11 04:01:03 UTC
Hello, I need to report that I have been unable to get my system sounds enabled... in other words, when I go to KDE Control Panel and click on the sounds tab, I click on enable sounds and then assign sounds to certain system events such as minimizing/maximizing windows, startup/shutdown of Linux, etc... Now I know that I can hear *.wav files because I have browsed to the directory where the *.wav's are kept and listened to them. For some reason, they do not work when I enable them. Please get back with me when you find out what I or you need to do about this. Thanks, Les Schorlemer firstname.lastname@example.org

Please give me some more details: - Which soundcard are you using? - Does any KDE application produce sound? i.e. can you play the sounds from the control panel using the Test button? - is kaudioserver running? (ps ax |grep kaudioserver) - is esd running? (ps ax |grep esd) - What does your /etc/sysconfig/sound file say?

Link /etc/sysconfig/soundcard to /etc/sysconfig/sound or get the current package.
