Version: (using KDE Devel)
Installed from: Compiled sources
knotify works fine (KDE Sound System) if volume=100 but there is no sound for .ogg files as soon as volume <100. If I do a fresh compile/install it works normally if I install arts+kdelibs+kdebase only. The problem is triggered by installation of 'kdemultimedia' package, more precisely as soon as I do 'make install' in 'akode' subdirectory of kdemultimedia knotify does not play .ogg files anymore (if volume < 100)
knotify continues to work normally even with volume < 100 if I specify .wav file instead of .ogg
I can see in knotify.cpp that a stack of effects is installed only
if ( d->volume != 100 )
// It works to access the playObject immediately because we don't allow
// non-file URLs for sounds.
Arts::StereoVolumeControl volumeControl = Arts::DynamicCast(soundSer
Arts::PlayObject player = playObject->object();
Arts::Synth_AMAN_PLAY ap = d->audioManager->amanPlay();
if( ! volumeControl.isNull() && ! player.isNull() && ! ap.isNull() )
So I suspect that installing akode breaks something in this code
I also can confirm this bug with KDE_3_4_BRANCH and HEAD.
