Is there a log for sounds played?

Linux Questions - 8 hours 4 min ago
I have a program running that plays a sound occasionally, to call my attention. Sometimes I decide to shut that program down, but the sound keeps playing. I kill -9 the program, I check the output of 'ps aux | grep program' and confirm it's not running, and I still get the sound. Is there some log somewhere that will tell me where that sound is coming from?

TIA

Mouse scrolling via wheel" jumpy. How can it be controlled?

Linux Questions - 8 hours 27 min ago
First things first: OpenSUSE 15.3, KDE/Plasma, Kensington Expert Mouse trackball.

When I use the scrolling ring around my trackball, it "scrolls" by jumping 5-6 lines at a time. I've gone into the Input Devices menu under System Settings and none of the options do anything to correct this. They do have an affect on pointer movement -- and, possibly, a little bit of an affect on scrolling when one grabs the scroll bar and drags it -- but that's not helping the wheel/ring scrolling jumpiness. Scrolling through this text window while I'm typing this still jumps 5-6 lines at a time.

I'm sure there's got to be a setting somewhere on the system that affects the behavior of the scroll wheel (or ring). "xev" tells me that "wheel" events are seen as either button 4 or 5 (depending on the direction of rotation) but where would I alter the amount of scrolling that's taking place?

I've looked at a config file, "71-mouse-local.hwdb", that is supposed to allow a user to redefine the "click angle" but
  • redefining that setting from the default, from 15 to 3 (might as well make a big change to see if it's actually doing anything, right?),
  • restarting the hwdb service (via "system-hwdb restart"),
  • and issuing "udevadm trigger /dev/input/event*"
has had no effect on the amount of scrolling that's done when rotating the mouse wheel/ring.

Ideas as to where I look next to alter the amount of scrolling?

TIA...

LXer: Linux Jargon Buster: What are Upstream and Downstream?

Linux Questions - 10 hours 56 min ago
Published at LXer:

The terms: upstream and downstream are rather ambiguous terms and, I think, not really used by the general public. If you are a Linux user and do not write or maintain software, chances are pretty good that these terms will mean nothing to you, but they can be instructive in how communication between groups within the Linux world works.
