    No startup sound in Ubuntu 12.04

    I installed Ubuntu 12.04 yesterday on two different systems (32 & 64 bit) but none of them have startup (login) sound!!. Of course its beta 2 version didn't have startup sound neither. is it a bug or what is the problem?

    I solved the problem by adding this startup item to the startup applications and now it works. I hope it can be useful for those who have the same problem.

    Command: /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login"

    Yep. I too had the same problem. There was no startup sound and when i checked the startup applications, there was no entry regarding Login Sounds. Will try your fix though.

    You can use this command to show up all startup application again:

    sudo sed -i 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop

    Looks like the login sound was removed by default:

    Ha ha ha, I was wondering about that too. Apparently it's supposed to be faster, eh? I haven't really noticed a difference, tbh.
