Event Sounds (minimize, maximize, close, etc..) disappearing from Apps

First of all, I love those event sounds!
I have been running XFCE in archlinux for years and always with "Event sounds" and "Input feedback sounds" enabled in "Appearance / Settings".
Lately I noticed some programs do not generate these sounds anymore...
If I remember correctly it started with Mousepad, then XFCE terminal, now Thunar also do not generate those fancy sounds sad
Is there any way to revive these events?
TIA

Thank you, but I believe the topics are not related....
Event sounds in my system do work fine, just not working with the programs I noted in the post

Re: Event Sounds (minimize, maximize, close, etc..) disappearing from Apps

The event sounds are tied to GTK events - not applications. For which events in Mousepad/Terminal/Thunar were sounds generated before that are no longer being generated?

Here is a list of events for which sounds are generated. Note that this spec and software hasn't been updated since 2012 so it's unmaintained.

Testing on my system, the same sound events still work as always though.

@toz
Thanks for the link.
I am away from home now, have to check it later...
But the event sounds not working in mousepad and xfce-terminal are:
Minimize, maximize, close, open, unmaximize and restore.
TIA

That is odd. Which distro are you using and can you also provide version numbers of each of those apps?
Also which window manager? xfwm4 or another?
