How much time does it take to recompose an email for a different list? You 
forward stuff to other lists often enough, even this reply was forwarded, and i 
am not even subscribed to that list. 
Which is probably just confusing the subscribers there.

Again, you want us to do your work for you. I am pointing you to these other 
places. I (and anyone else for that matter) may not have your issue at hand, 
or cannot reproduce it. So I am not capable of providing any necessary 
feedback to those who may look at the problem. And I sure am not going to be a 
middle-man funneling information, questions, and feedback back and forth.

Right

And I am pointing you to other, more relevant places that will add many, many 
more eyes than this tiny list provides. Which will save you  time in the end. 
Starting at the top for something that is not distro-specific is maybe a better 
place to start in this case (your pulseaudio installation questions on the 
other hand *do* belong here, as opposed to being cross-posted to the kde list)
