Description of problem:
Fire up KDE Control Center, expand Sound & Multimedia, select "System
Notifications", select Actions and check "Play a sound", click on folder and
you'll notice no sounds available for any filter you select. A work around which
is rather not the intended way would be to select "More Options" under "Quick
Controls" and check "Apply to all applications" and then select "Turn On All"
"Sounds" then "Apply". Then your sounds will be activated.
Again this is unnacceptable from a user standpoint.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fire up KDE Control Center, expand Sound & Multimedia, select "System
2. Select Actions and check "Play a sound"
3. Click on folder and you'll notice no sounds available for any filter you select
Actual Results: No sound file types available to select, even though doing a
terminal ls -l on dir /usr/share/sounds reveals them.
Expected Results: To see sound (.WAV) files to select
I was able to fix this issue by removing the wav.kdelink and x-wav.kdelink files
from the /usr/share/mimelnk/audio directory. Check that out! Result fixed. I'll
let RH maintainer close this bug. :)
