This is my first post and I just registered today.
I was running kubuntu 7.10 from 2007 till two days back. Thought it quite old, so wanted to upgrade from 7.10 to 9.10, and if I like the latest kde 4 (since I've not used it yet), the plan was to use the lucid lynx. The two phase upgrade from 7.10 -> 8.04 -> 9.10 went seamlessly without any hitch. But now the problem started to occur, and I will point them one by one:
1. While booting, the startup splash screen falls into a console which read "checking battery state ... DONE" and it stays there forever. So, I opened another terminal by ctrl-alt-F1, gave my login id, password, type startx to go into the graphical mode.
I checked the /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc file and made the
line to false.
I Also tried the other suggestions like restarting the kdm and dpkg-reconfigure. But the problem still exist.
Now I see, that the console is not stucking at check battery state message , rather its going to the tty1 and asking for the login/password.

Now, I don't have Nvidia graphics card installed, so can I safely remove whatever lists in Synaptic searching with 'Nvidia*' ?

2. I want to stop the notification/system sound for application, e.g. while closing a button in griffith or closing a window in pidgin the system emits a sound, I want to stop all these sounds, how to do that?
3. In kde3, I can search file under the present directory using konqueror, now I see konqueror has a search bar, but that is for web, not in the local file system. I am missing this very helpful feature of konqueror, can I somehow brought it back?
4. This issue is not 9.10 specific but faced in 7.10 ..
Whenever I try to play an audio cd the system just freezes. The only in error dmesg is
I don't know if that helps at all.
