I do not know what was in the experimental sources, but it seems a
make clean has removed something and when I recompiled the package,
it was correctly working.
However, I use xorg, fvwm, trayer, blueman-applet like pasystray and
was searchin the whole internet to solv this problem. Had installed
and deinstalled packages and now it is magicaly working.
Now I have to figure out, which of the packages pulled a missing
dependency into the system.
It is sad, that only monsters like KGE (it would install 1,8GByte
on my system) and GNOME have all the right dependencies.
But if you install something like
nothing is working! I think the above packages should install a
Now I have to figure out, WHY ALSA is working (pasystray show it)
but there is no sound coming out of the speakers.
I say only: "Welcome to the dependeny hell!"
