    Playing customised system sounds in 8.04 with a C-Media CM6501 soundcard

    The C-Media CM6501 soundcard has both PnP and USB features. With GGibbon the USB needed to be set as default with the following terminal line-
    asoundconf set-default-card default

    With GG I'd added my own wav file to play at Log in using System>Preferences>Sounds>Sounds. Having now upgraded to the 8.04, I can play the standard system sounds but not my wav file. If I select my wav file not only does it not play but it then prevents other sounds being played until I close and reopen System>Preferences>Sounds.

    I can still play my wav file either from my music file or by passing the mouse over the wav file icon in usr/share/sounds.

    Why can't I customise Log in with my own wav file now I'm using 8.04?

    Whilst I'm able to play Test sounds in System>Preferences>Sounds>Devices essentially I am not able hear any System Sounds being played in System>Preferences>Sounds>Sounds.

    However instead by going into Administration/ Login Window/Login Window Preferences/Accessibility I am able select my wav file or other Login sound. Not sure why one way works and not the other.
