Alas, 13.04 beta has brought with it a whole host of annoyances/issues.
So working through one at a time: the drum roll on login.
Aside from just being annoying, I find it causes my computer to hang for a good 2 or 3 seconds before I am able to type my password.
I had the same problem in 12.10 but I was able to disable the sound (which also stopped the hanging issue) by adding the following:to /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/50_unity-greeter.gschema.overrideCode:[com.canonical.unity-greeter] play-ready-sound = false
In 13.04 this doesn't work.
So any way to disable it?
