I am newbie running Slackware10.2 with KDE desktop
I just formatted my HDD, reinstalled slackware & custom compiled the
kernel. Then used the command "alsamixer" to setup the channels, then
stored them with "alsactl store"
I get sound on all applications (xmms, gxine, tvtime) but not the
default KDE system notification sounds (like during login/logout).
So I went to "Control Center" > "Sound & Multimedia" > Sound System
Then under the "General" tab I made sure that "Enabled the Sound System"
check box system was marked.
Then under the "Hardware" tab I made sure that the audio device was ALSA
(I also tried "Auto detect")
Then went to "Control Center" > "Sound & Multimedia" > System Notifications"
In the "Player Settings" at the bottom right hand corner, I marked "Use
the KDE sound system" check box.
All these did not help at all!! but amazingly when I uninstalled the
"kdemultimedia" package, everything was OK!! I was getting KDE system
notification sounds as well as sound on applications.
Reinstalled the "kdemultimedia" package & system notification sound were
This is how my settings were (as far as I know), how come it was working
back then but after reinstallation has gone haywire!! I must admit that
I made a much more slim installation this time (omitted quite a few
packages during installation, sometimes even without realizing the
consequence :-P )
Anyway, I don't need the "kdemultimedia" package at all except for the
kmix applet which I keep on my panel (it comes in handy quite often).
So can any one please suggest a solution to my sound problem or an
alternative to kmix applet??
