For anyone who might be interested I managed to fix my sound problems.
After reading Adeodato Simo's message a few days ago about the
libflac6 issue being solved, I upgraded my system. After the upgrade
root had system sounds working again but normal users did not. I
finally managed to get system sounds back for normal users by opening
~/.kde/share/config and deleting two files: knotify.eventsrc and
knotifyrc. When I restarted kde these two files were regenerated and
all system notification sounds were restored.
