Sound problem


Whenever I try to play any sound file it does not play and I have a sleep warning message. How to solve it please?

What is a “sleep warning message” ?

Do you have any sound at all? You can test for that by copying and pasting the following sound test into a gnome-terminal or konsole:speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

If that does NOT give you sound, then try working your way through the audio troubleshooting guide: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

If the speaker test DOES give you sound, then this could be a codec issue. What audio players are you using to play and what sound file extensions and audio codecs are you trying to play? What is your opensuse version and what is your desktop version (gnome, kde3, kde4)?
