Re: [vox-tech] Sound Problem

Hi Bob,

You might try going into the KDE Control Center, select 
Sound and Sound Server, and turning off the sound server.
Or if it's off, turn it on.  Frankly the artsd server is 
kind of a mystery to me, very poorly documented.

It could also be that some lock file in /tmp was left when 
Konqueror crashed, so deleting stuff there might fix it.
