Hey, check out what happens in Dapper when the screen is locked and you enter the wrong password. It's cute.

I've rigged mine to cry out, "Help! Help! I'm being repressed!" if you put in a bad password.

It would be cooler if it also said "uh-uh!".

How did you change that?

How did you change that?

Use these two options in /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf:

For failed login:

SoundOnLoginFailure=true
SoundOnLoginFailureFile=/path/to/sound.wav


For successful login:

SoundOnLoginSuccess=true
SoundOnLoginSuccessFile=/path/to/sound.wav

Thank you Stormy Eyes.

No problem. :) I rigged my success to be the first few minutes of "Good Enough" by Van Halen, where Sammy Hagar yells out, "Hello, baby!" It makes my wife giggle every time she logs in.

Is it possible to change the text on the lock screen logon?

(ex. change Bad password to something else)

...and just now I discovered that, like so many things, the effect is copied from Mac OS X. (Yes, it's a bad day for me mistyping my password.)

Thanks Stormy Eyes, thanks to that little titbit of info, James Hetfield now shouts "So F*cking What!" when I make a typo in my PW.:D


Scares the hell out of my dog.

If she wasn't married, my next step would be to buy her a drink ;)
