RE: No window manager notification sounds with beryl

I've noticed the same issue. According to the number of answers that you've received so far, and to what I thought already, there must be no solution as Beryl when running takes in charge many of KDE features . The only way would be a sound plugin in Beryl (or in the upcoming Compiz Fusion), with a complete new sound theme(s) replacing KDE sounds. But I don't see that happen, nor mentioned anywhere on the web.

Yes it is not possible to use the built-in window manager notifications because those belong to KWin, the KDE Window Manager. You can't use 2 window managers at the same time, so when you use Beryl, you lose KWin, along with any feature related to KWin, like notifications.

The only possible "solution" is to use Beryl's sound notifications if it has any and use the KDE sounds for those (you will have to search which ones are which).
