KDE sound problem
Last modified: 2007-12-03 13:20:22 EST
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):
To chamge Gnome to KDE and start X Window System.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change Gnome to KDE
2. Start X Window System
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
arts run and working...

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
Sorry, it is my mistake. I was sure, all related rpm packets will be installed
by dependences. But not all is so strict.
It's not strict wrt pulseaudio, since it is possible to run kde without it.
