I guess in part I need to learn how the sound server works ( I'm a
newbie). I selected that I wanted evolution to play a .wav file when a
new email arrived. It didn't work. I tried to play the wav file with
XMMS. Found that I needed to disable the arts sound server before I
could play the .wav files in XMMS. I figured that one out and now XMMS
will play both, (as long as I start it with the command artsdsp xmms).
the problem is now that Evolution will not even "beep" to indicate an
incoming email. I have the arts sound server set so that I can hear
event sounds such as start-up, shut-down, etc... but I can't get
Evolutioon to even beep anymore. As I said, I have the arts sound
server start at login, and I have tried both duplex mode and non-duplex
mode and there doesn't seem to be any difference. Is there something
that I am missing or can someone suggest anything else? (by the way, I
gave myself rwx permissions on all files/directories necessary to reach
these wave files... ( I have SuSE 8.0) and Ximian Evolution 1.2.
Your help is appreciated.
