I installed KDE 3.2 (these Slackware packages) and my XMMS (and no other audio player - JuK, Kaboodle..) wont play mp3 or wavs, but it plays audio files fine. When I try to play mp3, XMMS just doesnt start - no sound, no move.
I tried to set the output plugin to Alsa or OSS, but this didnt help.
Everything was fine before installing KDE 3.2.
Have you tried updating XMMS? Try that, and if it doesn't work get another desktop like Fluxbox and see if XMMS will work through it. I use GNOME and haven't had problems with XMMS not playing music, even when ALSA wasn't set up correctly in GNOME and Fluxbox has been fine too. So I'd try a new desktop if reinstalling XMMS doesn't work.
If you are using ALSA make sure all the volume levels are up. I'm not too sure how KDE works and what types of problems it might have because I don't use it since it's slow and bulky so hopefully if what I have said doesn't work, someone else will help.
i don't know either. is kde still supporting arts in their upgrades? i mean, can you download a new arts kde module? i mean, i remember when i upgraded to 3.1.1 from kde, there was a new arts package to install also from kde.
