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.
