Did you read the errata and install updates? Notifications should be fine now: https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Mageia_6_Err ... ifications
And please use on of the support subforums for support-type questions ;)

The proposed solutions did not help.
The sound test in the plasma notification window plays 1-second sound damage.
All Samples in /usr/share/sounds/*.ogg Audacious reproduces correctly.
Which player is used by the plasma5.

What does that mean?

Did you install phonon4qt5-gstreamer ? Because no "player" is used here, but a backend - the default phonon vlc backend does not work, hence the gstreamer backend needs to be installed.
What do you have selected in systemsettings - multimedia - phonon backend?

I had set up Phonon VLC
Phonon4qt5-gstreamer and selecting in Phonon GStreamer 4.9.0
Solved the problem.
