I've asked a similar question before, then stopped working on the issue.
Now, I'm trying to get sound working again. For some reason I can't get
sounds to work in E. I can use a multimedia player (sound or video) and
it works, but I cannot enable system sounds. Whenever I try to create a
sound.cfg file in a theme (actually, I copy an existing file to my
current theme), I get a segmentation fault.
I have RedHat 7.2 on a Dell laptop, with Ximian Gnome, but I am using E
alone, not E as a WM on Gnome. If I use Gnome and Sawfish, sound works.
If I use Gnome and E, sound doesn't work.
I have version 0.16.5 of E.
I found some information on the web saying esd may be the problem, but
found no info on what to use as a replacement.
I welcome any ideas or suggestions?
