KDE 3.1.4 and Audio/System Sounds


Sorry for the previous post being in German - haven`t kept in mind that this is an English speaking list.
Now, my problem is the following:

I used to have installed KDE 3.1.2 on my woody system (deb www.debian.cz/pub/debian-czsk/kde/Debian/woody/i686) and everthing seemed to work just right as far as I could tell. Then I wanted to upgrade to the latest version from download.kde.org/stable/3.1.4/Debian, I did both an apt-get upgrade and the second time purged all of KDE and did a fresh install of KDE. Both times though, I did not get to hear any system sounds. On the one hand I can test the sound system from the control center/sound system tab, and it works. But when I want to set the sounds for system notifications I can choose the files to be played at startup, but when I press the play button, neither doI hear nothing, nor do I get any error message, just nothing. Trying to play an audio file from within konqueror also fails. There I get the message: kdeinit could not launch kaboodle. But kaboodle works just fine when being launched from konsole.

Anyone else having experienced this? Where else could I start searching to get this solved?

Thanks a lot for your help.
