Re: shutdown sound

a bit cheap, but you could add a line with play /path/to/soundfile.wav to your /etc/xdg/xfce4/xinitrc before this scripts completly exits.

Thanks.  'Sorry for taking so long to reply.  I may try that method in future, but for now I've discovered that the BIOS plays a little midi notification for us that's just fine.

BTW 'Trying out Xubuntu 6.06.1 now.

Hi, I installed Xubuntu 6 days ago.  Can you tell me where do I find this file called BIOS? I'd like to use the midi notification.  Thank you.

Re: shutdown sound

I think he was referring to his BIOS/CMOS on his motherboard? Either way this topic is several years old and the member is probably long gone, you could try libcanberra... it produces action/event sounds for GTK.

Re: shutdown sound

Please, help me. Forgive my ignorance, I'm new with this.  I downloaded libcanberra, but I don't know how to install it.  Can somebody tell me the steps I have to take? Thank you. :oops:

Re: shutdown sound

The package should be available from your Distro package manager, install it via that and you should have some Sound Settings.  I don't recall exactly where, but it may be under Window Manager Settings or WM Tweaks.

I did everything, downloaded and installed it via Distro package manager, but I don't find the Sound Settings anywhere.  They aren't under Window Manager Settings or WM Tweaks, I've been looking for them everywhere. Oh, and I found some sound settings on "Appearance" and checked "enable event sounds" but it doesn't work. :cry:

Re: shutdown sound

Hrm, that should be correct then (Enable Sound Events).  Check the home page for more info on using it or what for someone else to chime in, I don't use sound events hmm
