Sounds like a good guess! Since Gnome is my main desktop, where do I find the KDE control center/system notifications? Bear with me: I've used CTWM for at least 10 years... . I *do* use artsd for my text-to-speech apps, so do have artsd running. I've poked around the FreeBSD knotifyrc config file and find nothing on the "External player=" line. But the ^[Misc] section is in my Ubuntu KDE file. What goes there? A path to a wav file? The path to, say, xmms?? "player" needs for clarification, so an example would help. thanks much, gary > > Cheers, > -- > ,_, | Michael Nottebrock | [EMAIL PROTECTED] > (/^ ^\) | FreeBSD - The Power to Serve | http://www.freebsd.org > \u/ | K Desktop Environment on FreeBSD | http://freebsd.kde.org > > -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public Service Unix _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
