JohnA, I opened FocusWriter today to do some work and my sounds are now working just fine.
Don't know for sure why they started working for me all of a sudden but it makes me happy.
The program is running very smooth and has a nice snappy response.
This is a really excellent program for writing!
I am enjoying using it very much.
I'm trying to figure out how to give FocusWriter a five-star rating in the package manager but i can't remember how to do that.
ps...glad you're finally able to replace Ubuntu with Pardus.
It's great having you around.
