Good idea, but it got stranger when I looked at this. CUPS is still the print system in use. When I opened the Peripherals -> Printers, none of my CUPS printers were visible - in keeping with the fact that I can't print from any KDE app. I then entered administrator mode. Immediately, *ALL* of the printers were visible. IOW: KDE applications can print only if the app is running root. I'm guessing that the sound problem is related to this as well. If I go to a console session and use the play command to issue a soound, it plays fine. KMail and Kopete have lost all sound capabilities, however.
