i have Linux Mint 17 XFCE, and i do have sounds from videos and when adjusting volume. but whenever i logon or boot up there is no sound (i wanted to setup a custom sound to play when i login but i have to first find out why i get no sound) any help on this would be appreciated, and yes i googled this and found nothing useful.. :( im very new to linux

i dual boot with windows 7 and all my hardware is detected as far as i know of (i get wifi, display all that stuff) when i go to the sounds folder there is a few folders and many sound files and i havent heard anfy logon or boot sounds help me.

right click the sound icon in the taskbar,
- sound preferences - sound effects

change that from 'None' to 'Default'.

Yes, that is correct. You can add your new sound to the same folder if you want to and delete the sound that you don't like. I have the login sound from KDE 17, it sounds very nice.


Remember to add [Solved] to the subject line if you don't need anymore help.
