Question KDE Programs cannot play ogg audio


Recently programs such as noatun, juk, amarok... stopped playing ogg vorbis music files. Mp3s work fine. So does playing ogg vorbis using
Code:
#:~ ogg123 foo.ogg -d arts
Which tells me it's not a problem with aRts. KMplayer plays them fine too, probably because it uses mplayer's engine to play the songs. So what piece of software in KDE is responsible for decoding the oggs that isn't in ogg123 or mplayer? Can I just reinstall it (or the packages that include it), or is there maybe a setting in KDE that got messed up?

Thanks. Also, I'm running slackware, and using kde 3.3.0.

I'm seeing this too. I went as far as removing all the KDE packages and deleting /opt/kde, but it still doesn't work.

I also am using Slackware (-current), with KDE 3.3.0.

EDIT: Oh, when I launch artsd in a console, the error I get is "couldn't load file /path/to/file.ogg"

I still have not figured out what the problem is. Does anyone have any ideas?

Another one having the same problem. Also, can I ask if you can still hear your audio files within konqueror. It used to be that from the View>Preview toolbar, it was possible to just hover the mouse over audio files to hear them, but that to appears broken.

OK, did any of you use-----(UGH) swaret to update to current??

the oggutils package should be "replaced" with--------

libvorbis
libogg
vorbis-tools packages...........
Before you install the 3 listed packages........oggutils has to be removed or
you will get some oddball errors!! do a google for the current versions of these...............

Hey,

What's the "UGH" for? Yes, I use swaret to update to --current. I don't have oggutils installed, but I do have the following installed from swaret:

vorbis-tools-1.0.1-i486-3
libogg-1.1-i486-1
libvorbis-1.0.1-i486-1

I checked those versions against these: http://www.xiph.org/ogg/vorbis/download/ I don't see a 1.1 there, but the others are the same.

KDE is switching over to OGGs for all it's system music files,
so we'll see better support later I think.

Well the thing is, this is a new problem, and I can't see how it came about. They worked before, and I must have broken it somehow.

Ok, my problems got fixed when I downgraded to Xorg 6.7 from 6.8.x. Very odd, but now oggs work great.
