If you try from kcontrol to set up sound for KDE events, they are assigned but never played and can't even be played with the "test" button. Sound works well with normal KDE apps. What I found was that in /usr/bin/startkde there's a piece of code that check's if there's a sound card available: . /etc/sysconfig/sound if [ "$CARDTYPE" != "" ]; then sleep 1 ; kaudioserver (sleep 1 && exec kwmsound) & fi In my system /etc/sysconfig/sound doesn't exist. The actual name for this file is /etc/sysconfig/soundcard and this prevents sound daemons from being started.
