Description of problem:
Starting a Plasma session in Cauldron results of truncated sound.
The sound is played but as plasma-session has finished his job, it quits and startup sound is interrupted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Cauldron, 8
How reproducible: Always.
Install Mageia 8 Alpha 1 and Plasma 5, Update all packages.
Fix exists upstream!
According to this: https://pointieststick.com/2020/07/03/this-week-in-kde-a-little-bit-of-everything/
The plasma start-up sound is no longer cut off when starting up the computer (David Edmundson, Plasma 5.19.3)
Packages should updated.
Should be fixed with upcoming plasma-workspace-5.19.2-3.mga8 update!
What about the fix? work? don't work?
Sorry, with plasma-workspace-5.19.2-3.mga8 update, sound is no longer understandable.
While correctly configured in Systemsettings > Notifications > Applications: Configure > Plasma Workspace > Configure events. No sound at all at login.
Other sounds are well played even logout sound...
I think my computer is too fast? for plasma startup?
Upstream bug report is reopen at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=422948.
Seems to be more complicated than just a patch.
Also, in Mageia 8a1, plasma-workspace is 5.19.2, not 5.19.3.
Is this issue now fixed with new plasma 5.19.3 update?
Startup sound broken =>
[Plasma 5] Startup sound truncated or not played while correctly configured
On my system, even with 5.19.3-1.mga8 update, bug is still here.
I was too kind when I saw a fix ready upstream. In link provided below, bug is reopen in KDE bugtracker. I report it.
The upstream bug is very convincing, thanks for that reference. Since you are subscribed to it, please report back here when it gets fixed.
What a lot of 'noise' about no noise.

As you say so!
I will report here if there is some future news.
Giving some feedback here about upstream comments:
This bug is really silly. But I managed a "workaround" that gives the feeling there is something wrong in upstream Plasma startup's code.
This workaround I write is really simple but necessitate PulseAudio binaries (Meanwhile they are with Mageia):
Write a .desktop file in /etc/xdg/autostart/ like this:
Add this in the above file:
Name=Plasma Desktop Startup Sound
Booh. Startup sound played !! And even during Plasma splash screen !
This is hacky BUT end-user doesn't have to write this type of hack.
Drawback: it plays only default sound as it is hardcoded in Exec command.
And if we ships this file AND upstream really corrects the bug, when update is installed, such file (/etc/xdg/autostart/org.kde.plasma_startup_sound.desktop) must be deleted.
Mageia 8Source RPM:
Assigning this to Plasma/KDE maintainers to look at this.
david_david has been working on it. Fix upstream is not as good as it.
They reclaim an output of plasma_session from a console. I really don't know how to do so from a tty.
Fixed by upstream release of Plasma 5.20.2
Meanwhile, Knotification seems broken at startup. Setting to write to a log file while logon event is still broken. Upstream has applied a patch to prevent a process to quit before sound is really played.
So we close this as it refers to "startup sound not played" and not about Knotification.
