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.
