Description Christopher Neufeld 2005-04-27 00:11:36 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.4.0)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc-3.4.3 Compiled from sources
OS:                Linux

I get no audio notifications from my kopete.  In the Notification Settings window, even the preview button (looks like the "play" symbol on a tape player) which lets you try out a sound is completely silent.  As far as I can tell, all other components of my KDE 3.4.0 produce sounds when expected.

add in file: /opt/kde3/bin/startkde in line:

"LD_BIND_NOW=true kdeinit +kcminit "


it should look like:

LD_BIND_NOW=true kdeinit +kcminit +knotify

restart KDE and it will work.. if not try:

kdeinit +kcminit +knotify

sometimes it only work if it is written in 2 lines.

greetings Martin F.

If you write
  kdeinit +kcminit +knotify

it's the same as
  kdeinit +kcminit +knotify

The first line will have no effect. The end result is that any problems you would have seen at initialisation will be delayed.
