That pulled in:
  Installing     : pulseaudio                                                                                                         
  Installing     : alsa-plugins-pulseaudio                                                                                            
  Installing     : pulseaudio-module-x11                                                                                              
  Installing     : kde-settings-pulseaudio

Now what do I service ??? restart to bring it up?
