OK, I think I have a workaround. As I told you, the "Startup Applications" contains a "GNOME login sound" command line :
/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login"
Unfortunately, no sound is played when we log in. If you try this canberra-gtk-play
command in a console, you will find the source of the problem : the required file (desktop-login)... simply does not exist! Isn't that weird?!
It seems that canberra-gtk-play
looks for a file called destop-login(.oga) in the /usr/share/sounds/* directories. You should try this :
- choose a startup sound that suits you
- convert it to .ogg or .oga
- rename it to "desktop-login" with the proper extension
- move it to /usr/share/sounds
- log out / log in
Does it work for you as it works for me?
