    Hi - yes, I think you'll find that under 'system notifications'. I don't know which version of Mandriva you're using, but on my system it's under System>Configuration>KDE>Look & Feel>System Notifications ...

    That should allow you to pick your own shutdown sounds. System sounds can be customised quite easily, but I haven't tried this for a while.

    Just guessing here, but maybe the "shutdown" sound file is corrupted or missing?

    I just found out that the start up file is in .wav and the ohters are .ogg files!

    Now I found a good solution to my problem I did this:

    I selected to use an external player instead of KDE's player.
    so now I use /usr/bin/play
