Red face changing sounds in Slackware


I've had pretty good luck with solving most of my problems, but I have not been able to discover how to change the system sounds. Is there a way to do this, or am I sol?

What system? you've told us nothing. If slackware, is it kde, xfce, or what?

Sorry, mate. It is the KDE desktop that I am using. I continued with my brainstorming after I posted, and would you believe it, I mucked about long enough and stumbled upon the answer. Under manage notifications, in the Settings/ system notifications, there is a column for sound. I found most of the events that I am interested in the KDE work space drop down section. I loaded all my wave files into /usr/share/sounds, and I have it set up already. Sorry to bother, but I have been searching for the answer to this for a long time, to no avail. Guess I should have looked further.

Happy Trails,
Paul

No Problem, Mate. I hope it helps someone. I know it is a bummer to re-invent the wheel

Happy Trails,
Paul

@VP9KS: On your page for this thread, you can mark it solved, as you solved it. Only you have that option as the O.P. That helps folks searching because they can put "solved" in the search to avoid unsolved issues.

Of course, it's standard practise (it seems) to muck around with the menus every update and hide everything somewhere different :-/.
