[Solved] Disable Start-Up Chime - Cinnamon

Postby WhatUsernameIsFree? on Sat Jun 09, 2012 3:16 pm

Hi all,

Really simple one, I hope! The "Ding ding" that you get after you log into Cinnamon, how do I disable that please? Like wise if there's a sound for logging out/shutting down.

Thanks

WUIF

Hi WhatUsernameIsFree?,

You need to edit the file /etc/mdm/mdm.conf as root. Under the section [greeter] add the following 2 lines:

SoundOnLogin=false
SoundOnLoginSuccess=false

It should look like this:

[greeter]
SoundOnLogin=false
SoundOnLoginSuccess=false

[chooser]

Save the file and the next time you reboot and login, no "Ding ding".

Hi, that file doesn't exist (in fact, neither does the folder). Should I create it?

Go to the Administration section in the Menu and find Login Window (I think that's what it's called).

On the Accessibility tab you can enable/disable the sounds that MDM uses.

Hi

Thanks for the reply, but I can't find anything like that in the Administration or Preferences section. :(

Are you using MDM or GDM3 ?

Not sure what they are, how can I find out what I'm using?
