I'm using the student edition of MMA 3.0 under Linux.
I tried to put a command like $SoundDisplay=''!wav.pl'' in my init.m file
in the directory .Mathematica/3.0/Kernel. The idea was to have this command
evaluated each time the kernel starts. Typing math will start a MMA session
where everything works fine (i.e. $SoundDisplay=''!wav.pl''). However, starting
mathematica with the X-frontend results in init.m not to be evaluated (i.e.
$SoundDisplay=stdout). I tried different locations of init.m (all within $Path)
and different kernel options but nothing seems to work.
Thank you for your efforts
