A slight sound kde3.3

Nothing serious, but I've noticed, the startup/logoff sounds do not work as a user. I mean...I have sound, but certain sounds just don't work as user (logon/logoff...error sounds..basically any kde system sound). As root however, they do. They are enabled in the kde control panel for both the user and root. What would cause this? Thanks.

Are you the only one that uses that system? The first thing I do on a KDE box, if I have permission, is remove the global sound directory. Like mv /opt/kde3/share/sounds /root or just plain out delete the thing. The start up sound I don't mind but the others are just plain out annoying. Rather then delete you can also mute the sounds, so check to see if it's up loud enough for you to hear.

Also make sure knotify is not crashing on startup or artsd may be disabled if it does. Usually in that case you get a warning prompt.

Odd. Someone told me to delete knotifyrc. I did so, and it worked. Not sure why...but when I re-started X..all worked fine
