    LOGIN sounds for gnome using mplayer.

    Ok, one of the things I like about mandrake is their KDE has a nice startup sound when desktop is loading. I always wanted to do it in fedora but using GNOME enviroment. So I posted the thread here. But I could not wait for the answer and started experimenting will all the players I installed (realplayer, mplayer, xmms, rhymthbox).

    But all of them started in GUI but not mplayer! so this what you can do:

    1. Download what ever sound you like from www.gnome-look.org and go to system sounds. This is the sound

    2. Leave your sound in the home directory (unless some else can help with this). You can also create a sounds folder in your home directory and it would play too.

    3. In order for sound to play in the background you need to install mplayer.

    4. Go to preferences >more preferences >sessions >startup programs and add this command:
    Code:
    mplayer Startup1_4.ogg
    or if you create a sounds folder this is an example how to add the line to sessions:This is you I add the line to sessions:
    /home/imdeemvp/sounds/Startup1_4.ogg
    and the sound will play in the backgroud without starting mplayer gui at your desktop STARTUP!

    Update: TESTED in mandrake 10.1 using Gnome 2.6 and it works. If you like this how to rate it!

    You can place the sound file wherever you want, but then you should use the command
    mplayer /path_to_the_soundfile/soundfile
    Example: mplayer /mnt/muskuspart/download/Startup1_4.ogg
    in the section 4.

    Nice how-to. Thanks for posting!

    I did try it, I created a sound folder in my home directory and I added this line to sessions:
    /home/imdeemvp/sounds/Startup1_4.ogg
