Description Michal Hlavinka 2008-12-05 01:55:49 EST
Description of problem:
Every time I log in (or log out) to my computer, KDE plays start sound (set by default). Every time this sound is discontinuous. It doesn't make KDE looks cool at all.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F-10 up-to-date

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.log in 
Actual results:
sounds are played, but it's discontinuous

Expected results:
sounds are played nicely, or not at all by default

Additional info:
in system-settings notifications these sounds are played fine
also all other notification sounds seem to be fine
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-12-05 08:19:12 EST
In our testing leading up to F-10 release, it seemed to work fine for most folks.  In practice now, this problem seems to be more widespread (most likely audio driver + pa interaction, or xine-lib-pulseaudio bugs).

In light of that, I would tend to agree that login (and logout) sounds should probably be disabled by default.  That's likely something beet implemented in kde-settings.

I (probably - our presentation laptop, so it's free for use) have access to laptop suffering this bug but really I don't know where to look. I agree, it looks like pa interaction problem to audio driver or to xine. And it occurs only in KDE.

Strange that all this worked great for me in beta but now not so great.  +1 to disabling by default.

retargetting rawhide/f11.
Comment 5 Kevin Kofler 2009-01-10 13:30:56 EST
I don't think sweeping the problem under the carpet is a good solution.
Comment 6 Michal Hlavinka 2009-01-26 09:32:49 EST
it seems this problem is fixed by xine-lib update xine-lib-1.1.16-1.fc10, it works for me now. I've added karma +1
