I'm writing first to preempt some questions. I missed this on first reading of the changelog, when upgrading you must install cairo-1.0.2-i486-1.tgz, it's needed for gtk2 and all apps that use gtk2 (mozilla, firefox, gkrellm, etc.)
After upgrading to kde-3.5.1 there seems to be some probs with artsdsp. When running firefox is use the command
to enable sound on webpages (for flash, etc.). However when trying to use this I get the following error:
karol@slackpc:~$ artsdsp firefox
artsdsp works only for binaries
Has anyone else encountered this?
Here is a fix I found here
, you must make .asoundrc executable, which I didn't do on first try.
