SYSTEM-NOTIFICATIONS FAILURE


If you do have sound from the multimedia players, but no system notifications. ( maybe even an ARts errormessage at boot )
Here is what you can do to . . . as user . . not as root, ( so no "su" )

CODE
$ kwrite ~/.kde/share/config/knotifyrc


That will open a file where you see text . . compare it and make it 100% the same as:

QUOTE
[Misc]
LastConfiguredApp=KDE System Notifications

[StartProgress]
Arts Init=true
KNotify Init=true
Use Arts=true


Then log out and back in and you should have sound from your system notifications.


BUT: If even that did not help, try this: on the system-notifications GUI in the KDE Control Center --> Look & Feel there is a button "Player Settings" where you can set an external player . . . set it to "/usr/bin/play" and test a sound-event. In most cases this will work !   ( In Debian you will need to have "sox" installed for /usr/bin/play )
