1. Removing old sound device from KDE 4,x
Published Blog entry by Raul Suarez
[ http://kwlug.org/node/776 ]

When you connect a sound device to a KDE 4.x system Phonon recognizes it
and allows you to assign priority. Many people, including me have found
that once you remove the device, the entry does not go away and phonon
shows a message indicating that the device is not working.
I found this after I plugged in some borrowed USB speakers. They worked
but after I returned them. I got the phonon message every time I logged
The solution was to edit the file ~/.kde/share/config/phonondevicesrc
and delete the entry that corresponds to the device you no longer have.
I would have preferred to have this functionality on the multimedia KDE
control module, but for now this solution worked.
