Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2004-04-09 23:53:50 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)

Description of problem:
Since Fedora ships with GNOME as the default desktop, and using ALSA
drivers I could not simply 'esddsp artsd' or 'artsdsp esd' it would be
nice if arts could be preconfigured to use esd for its output.

A KDE power user would probably know which global settings file one
could do this in, but the per-user file is
~/.kde/share/config/kcmartsrc, and the relevant setting is 'AudioIO=esd'

With this set I now have my GNOME apps (and KDE games) happily coexisting.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable ESD
2. Run KDE sound-outputting app (say KReversi) from within GNOME


Actual Results:  a KDE warning is outputted in a message box that the
sound server could not bind to the sound card and it would set up a
null audio card instead

Expected Results:  Sound Just Work (TM)

with kcontrol you can easily select your default audio device.

the default audio divice will be ALSA.
