Thunderbird Mail Notification Sound

Postby Landngroove on Sun Apr 14, 2013 12:03 pm

Hello: I have done a new install of Mint 13 Cinnamon. I also created a Thunderbird email account. I can't seem to get an audible sound when a new email arrives. I have checked the "Play a sound box" in the preferences catagory, but still no sound. The only sound I hear in Mint 13 is when I startup, which I installed myself in the startup applications. What do I need to do to enable this sound in Thunderbird. AsI am new to Linux, everything I do is trial, and error. Thanks.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I had the same trouble, and found that if you'll open your sound file in Audacity and then export it as "WAV (Microsoft) signed 16 bit PCM" it will then work. Really!
