Description Patrick Silva 2017-10-14 20:19:44 UTC
Tested Dolphin (no sound when I delete folders/files), K3b (no sound when it finishes a disc copy) and Ktorrent (no sound when a download is finished).

I use Arch, plasma 5.11, gstreamer backend.
Comment 1 Patrick Silva 2017-10-14 20:21:10 UTC
plasma plays the notification sound when I change the volume level using my mouse wheel.
Comment 2 David Edmundson 2017-10-14 22:43:43 UTC
and you have a sound set in knotification settings?

does it work there?
Comment 3 Patrick Silva 2017-10-14 23:24:53 UTC
ktorrent has no sound configured.

Dolphin is not available in knotification settings.

K3b has KDE-K3B-Finish-Success.ogg, nothing happens when I click the play button to test it.

I tested all items with notification sound enabled in knotification settings. None works.

I'm testing plasma 5.12 beta on Arch Linux... still no notification sound.

I just reinstalled Arch, notification sounds play now.
