Changing system ready sound
http://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon9.png Help!! System ready sound
So I am Trying to personalize my laptop.... I am using ubuntu 13.04, I tried to change the system ready drums "conga" sound. this is what I did.
1. convert my own .mp3 file to a .ogg file and name it system-ready.ogg.
2. I opened /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo as root and replaced the file that was there with mine, but the sound is not playing for system ready.
I looked into trash to restore the other file but I cannot find it anymore, because I read later that this was just linked to dialog-question.ogg, so I guess the system ready sound commando is just not being told to the computer.
How do I configure so I can have my computer play the system-ready.ogg file I put in the folder,
I have play system ready enabled in dcong-editor com.canonical.unity-greeter.
Re: Changing system ready sound
I would also like some help on this issue for 13.04...
I tried an alternative method (which also didn't work):
- Create a custom sound theme "CustomSounds" in /usr/share/sounds, including a system-ready.ogg file
- Select the theme for my user by dconf-editor (org/desktop/gnome/sound/theme-name = CustomSounds)
- Select the theme for the lightdm user by dconf-editor (using the code below to run dconf-editor as lightdm - the same method I have used successfully to set the unity greeter background and some other settings)
I have the customised sounds, but unity greeter still plays the default system ready drums! Perhaps my .ogg violates some constraint somewhere? I can't see why though - it's plenty short and etc... Is the system-ready sound played by some other user perhaps?
Any help appreciated!
Running dconf-editor as lightdm:
...Don't forget to clean up afterwards:
me@box:~# sudo -i # Escalate to root
root@box:~# xhost +SI:localuser:lightdm # Allow lightdm to use the X Server
root@box:~# su lightdm -s /bin/bash # Masquerade as lightdm user
root@box:~# xhost -SI:localuser:lightdm # Revoke lightdm privileges
root@box:~# exit # Drop back to my user
