kOrganizer alarms not working under KDE 3.4

THe kOrganizer alarms (to signal calendar events, etc) don't seem to be working under KDE 3.4.

Everythnig seems fine, though: the alarm daemon is running in the systray, alarms are enabled, and enabled at startup. Alarms are toggled in the calendar, and system notifications are working fine.

I've tried to set alarms several times, but they never sound, either anytime before the event, or during the event. They dont sound at the selected time (i.e., minute, hours, days.)

All my volumes are turned up, too.

I'd appreciate any help.

Maybe it's a matter of editing something in the startkde file?

Do you or have you selected the sound file that must be played as the alarm?

If yes, then can you play it outside of korganizer?

I'm just suggesting that it may be the sound file itself.

hope this helps...

lemme know...

Thanks for the reply!

Yes, the sound(s) I selected work just fine outside of kOrganizer.

One interestingthing happened, though, which I didn't mention. When I did a few tests previously, I set up 3 different alarm times. Of course, non of them sounded, and the times passed. For whatever reason, I rebooted a little while later. As soon as the KDE desktop sarted up, all the alarms went off, and kAlarm showed up in the systray.

Does that offer any clues?

It only seems to work correctly when I've got my systray clock set to 24-hour format, not 12-hour format.

So, it works nicely now.

In any case, thanks for offering to help!

Take care.
