[Solved] Xfce Desktop Sounds; are there any?

Post by M_Mynaardt »

Hi again!

Does anyone know if there are sounds for the Mint Xfce desktop? I just like having background noises, so I know when I'm clicking the mouse, or opening or closing windows. Just something that's in the "nice to have" category.

Thanks...

In general, Xfce does not support sound events.

That would explain why I couldn't find any!

Oh well, it wasn't very important.

Thanks!

It's disabled by default.
You have to enable them by right clicking on the desktop.
I think it' in one of those tabs.
I'll post a screenshot later.

OK - did that. Then what?!
I'd like to play a short MP3 tune (in Exaile, for example) when the desktop starts up.
Any chance? Does it need a script? edited into some start-up file(s)?
