It is much easier after you have encountered the symptons and found the fix. 
KDE has been erroring off with a message about can not find If artsd doesn't start, you don't have knotify sounds. It 
turns out that arts is dependant on libvorbis but doesn't have it as a 
dependancy. A short time ago, libvorbis was updated and a -u didn't update 

Happy new year,
