No sound events in GNOME 2.6


I installed Slackware 10.0 and Dropline Gnome 2.6. Everything works except sound events in GNOME. I have been reading up on that problem but no solution has worked so far. The ALSA drivers work (verified with Music Player), though.

Even as root sound events do not work - and I did enable them in the GNOME Control Panel. I just don't hear anything. Sending something to /dev/dsp does cause some sound. So something must be screwed up here.

Any hints would be appreciated.

Sound works fine in the Slackware vanilla gnome. You might want to check the forum at dropline.net. They usually stay on top of problems that come up with their product.

Try:

Applications=> Multimedia => Volume Control

Then, try turning everything up. I have found that the different volume control settings can affect different sounds. When you get the right ones adjusted, turn the others back down. I have found that I get feedback if I turn everything up.

Also, you say that you enabled sounds in the Gnome Control Panel. Just to check,

Applications=> Desktop Preferences=> Sound

Make sure you have checked the boxes for "Enable sound server startup" and "Sounds for events" under the "General" tab. Then, click on the "Sound Events" tab and try playing the different sounds. Try a few, as there are many that aren't installed, if I remember right.

Thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately, I already tried everything you mentioned. Still no go.

This gets even stranger. So I installed gnome-audio to get some more system sounds and upon login and logout they are being played. However, when I go into GNOME Sound Preferences and click *on the same sound* I do not hear anything... This is really strange...
