Workaround for disabling login sound

Postby http » Sat May 26, 2012 4:52 am

Just installed Maya and found that the option to disable the gnome login sound under Startup Applications is no longer avaiable.

A useful/quick workaround is to rename the sound file like this:

Code: Select all

 sudo mv -v /usr/share/sounds/LinuxMint/stereo/system-ready.ogg{,.disabled}


(see https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm/+bug/437429)

This will rename the login sound file so that it cannot be found (and played). This has a little side-effect: an error sound is played instead. I can personally live better with that one but if that's also irritating to some then replacing the system-ready.ogg file by another would do the trick.

There's probably a better way to handle the problem properly and modify the settings directly but i don't know how to do that.

Almost right. Should be Menu -> ADMINISTRATION -> Login Window. I just did that and it works great.

Why is that in there anyway. The only thing more annoying would be that old Windows "Ta Da" sound. Other than that MATE absolutely ROCK! Good job.
