Description Sergei LITVINENKO 2007-11-03 10:07:35 EDT
Description of problem:
KDE sound system init fail.

If I understand right, arts is configured to use pulse audio, but KDE do not
provide/load necessary components. As result, aRts can not initialize playback
and KDE is mute.

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


How reproducible:

To chamge Gnome to KDE and start X Window System.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change Gnome to KDE
2. Start X Window System
Actual results:
aRts show error message like "can not inialize playback defice". 


# artsd -F 10 -S 4096 -a alsa -s 60 -m artsmessage -c drkonqi -l 3 -f
*** PULSEAUDIO: Unable to connect: Connection refused
artsmessage: cannot connect to X server

Expected results:
arts run and working...

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2007-11-03 10:52:42 EDT
kde-settings-pulseaudio includes the support to enable pulseaudio.

yum groupinstall kde-desktop 
will ensure that (as well as any other new default components) it is installed 
Comment 2 Sergei LITVINENKO 2007-11-03 13:40:03 EDT
Sorry, it is my mistake. I was sure, all related rpm packets will be installed
by dependences. But not all is so strict.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-11-03 14:19:50 EDT
It's not strict wrt pulseaudio, since it is possible to run kde without it.
