#locate artsd

that will give u the location where arts is..

to know more about arts daemon ---> #artsd --help



u can do one thing...

start up KDE..

go to ---> KDE Control center..

go to ---> Sound and multimedia..

go to --->Sound System ---> check if the option for start arts sound server on startup is checked..

check the --->System Notifications section [u could set up notifications for various applications using the media player of ur choice and also play different sounds...]

i couldn't find the check[ ] to see if arts would startup.
so i tried the other method.

i started konsole
su root
passwd: XXXXXXXXX
locate artsd
bash: locate: command not found

so what do i do?

i have no working experience on SUSE!! first of all... how i wish other Suse Brothers could contribute towards solvin your problem.....

any ways..

I am assuming that u havent gone with the full installation of suse on your system..

try

#whereis artsd

or #artsd --help

if it fails ... u dont have it installed on your system...

U could do one thing .. i have read in various posts that SUSE has this tool called Yast already installed [ http://www.suse.de/en/private/produc...prof/yast.html]

run Yast and try to install arts and Esound support .. from your SUSE CD... or through the net..

Suse Brothers?

any way.....

yes i do have a full install of SuSE 9.1 my comp is a full linux box now.

okies i did the whole artsd search and here are the results

+------------------------------------------------------+
| me-lewistoncuda1cable4a-83:/ # whereis artsd.|
| artsd: /opt/kde3/bin/artsd.........................................|
+------------------------------------------------------+

and yes SuSE 9.1 as far as i know [because that's what i use] does have YaST installed. it is basically a windows Update util. i am sure you know because other linux distros may have some similar programs for packages installs.

but the thing is.... how can i use YaST to install Esound support?
i do not know where to set the dir location or the URL to d/l from.

but thank you TUXpect you have helped gr8ly in my journey into the linux world.

U should have esound rpm in your Suse Cd 1... if u dont have then


1)download ----> esound-0.2.33-28.i586.rpm from

http://www.maxtux.co.uk/dist/suse/9....33-28.i586.rpm

2)download ---->esound-devel-0.2.33-28.i586.rpm

ftp://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/SuSE-Linu...33-28.i586.rpm

3) install them by doin the following..

$ su - [do this to change to root]

password ****** [enter ur root password]

#rpm -ivh esound-0.2.33-28.i586.rpm esound-devel-0.2.33-28.i586.rpm


that should do the installation of esound... if u have all the dependencies....

You can find the dependencies here----->alsa-devel ...

ftp://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/SuSE-Linu...9.1/suse/i586/

after u install esound successfully...


2) open xmms --->preferences--->Audio I/o plugins---->Output plugins ---> Check if u have Esound output plugin [libesdout.so] and select it..

3)restart xmms


4) go to gaim --->tools-->preferences---->Sounds {See if esound shows up} ---> select it ---> goto
Sound events and select all the sound events u wanna turn on ---> highlight one of the events and
click on test... it should work even when u are listening to a song on XMMS [ ie. with esound output plugin selected]


5) if the above step fails

go to gaim --->tools-->preferences---->Sounds --->select Command --> in the text box "type" --->esdplay %s ---> goto Sound events and select all the sound events u wanna turn on ---> highlight one of the events and click on test... it should work even when u are listening to a song on XMMS [ ie. with esound output plugin selected]




Tell me how it goes...
