    Angry no kde login sound

    I'm using opensuse 11.1 with KDE 3.5.10 "release 21.9" and I cannot hear the login sound (kde startup sound) but I can hear the log off sound and can get sound in any other Linux application including every other kde system sound. I have checked the login sound file IS there and IS playable, i do not understand why the sound works for everything else but not the kde startup sound??

    Possibly at startup the sound volume in too low?
    In kde control center did you check the settings in Sound>System Notifications ?

    Or just the startup sounds from different programs are blocking each-other. Common sound problem in 11.1. There was a lot of threads about it.

    This is what I did, since I had the same issue...go into YaST and enable pulseaudio and do a sound test. Afterwards, type this command in konsole as root:

    alsactrl store

    Then go into configure desktop/multimedia and select device preference tab. Then on the left side select music and make pulse the first card on the list in output device category. Test it afterwards with a restart. Worked for me the first time. I have both logout and login tones lickety-split.
