Question How to kill sound effects they are making me crazy


Hi, I'm using KDE and the sounds that the windows makes when i close them or open them are just making me crazy.. Like when I close Mozilla it makes this weird sound like if a car crashed or something...Can someone tell me how to kill these sounds?.. I do not want any sounds at all.... But I want to be able to listen to my MP3's.. I just want the application sounds off... Thanks.

Look in your KDE Control Center, under "Sound".

Cool

I did that already, i have to mute the "pcm" in my sound control to kill the sounds the applications make when close or open up.. But if I do that then I won't be able to listen to my MP3's.... DO you have any other suggestions?

You are probably looking in the wrong section. Go to Sound --- System notifications (in the KDE CONTROL CENTER). At the bottom you will see "disable all sounds".

Cool

Hey MasterC.. By any chance have you ever set up a Canon BJC-1000 printer in your Linux Box?... If so, can you post the steps here?

Sadly I haven't.... However, you may wish to "edit" your above post and ask this as a new question (if you haven't already) in the hardware section.

How do you connect the printer, is it usb or parallel? Do you have CUPS setup on your system? If so, that will probably be your best bet. Documentation should be available at:
http://www.linuxprinting.org/printer_list.cgi

Also, try bringing up kprinter and configuring with it (again, assuming you have CUPS installed).

Cool
