To fix your sound effects in KDE3.4, do this:
go to /opt/kde3/bin as root and edit "startkde" (kwrite should work fine)
find this line
LD_BIND_NOW=true kdeinit +kcminit
Now change it to look like this:
kdeinit +kcminit +knotify
(yes now its 2 lines)
restart your computer and your sound notifications should be back
and that worked for my SuSE 9.2 install. Might work for you too...
Good luck, let us know!
