i have a small question that really has no urgency:
i'm running Knoppix 3.3 and i noticed that i have system sounds/notifications under root, but not under other users. the other users do have sound for playing media files or surfing the internet, but not system sounds...
i tried using KDE control center but all the options for sound are shadowed out... i tried running it from a console as root (su, kcontrol) and i was able to access the options but they never took effect - even after restart.
anyways, i've been playing with this for the past 3 hours so i figured i'd post this - i know how everyone hates newbies asking for help when they haven't even tried to fix it themselves! so if anyone knows a way to give sound privileges to the other users that'd be great... thanks!
