Hi All,

Back with VL after a couple years with Slackware.  Upgraded to Slack 12, but that seemed a bit buggy.  So rather than going back to 11.0, I figured I'd give VL another try instead of rebuilding a desktop out of 11.0.

VL's running great -- everything I want, straight out of the box. 

Only thing...How do you turn off the annoying sounds that accompany closing/opening applications?  I've been all through the control panel, but can't find the switch to throw.

Thanks in advance,

jahlen

It is in the control panel after all Cheesy.

More people missed it at first, so I uploaded this screenshot a while ago, it shows how to disable all those annoying sounds.

I can't imagine anyone thinking "hey, having a silly sound whenever I do something is a really nice touch!". I wonder why they are on in the default kde config...

Could it by any chance be because they are on by default in MS Windows?   Angry

And they're just as bad in Windows. But I've actually met people who want the sounds. I once offered to disable them for someone and she said "no." And she's not the only one.

Hehe, me too. But like I said before, who said most people are rational?    Grin

I turn them off in winDOS too. I often have music playing on my laptop, whether in Windows or Linux, and if you have the volume 'sort of' loud one of those sounds ( like the warning "Boink" ) can give you a good startle. I don't want any programs to make sound unless they are programs that are supposed to make sound ( media players for instance ). All the rest is just plain annoying IMO.
