Sound effects again

I am on Arch, and I want to turn on the sound effects.
I just:

  • Turned on "Event Sounds" in Settings Manager -> Appearance -> Settings;

  • Installed the libcanberra and libcanberra-pulse packages;

  • Have exported GTK_MODULES="canberra-gtk-module";

  • Turned up "System Sounds" in pavucontrol;

But I still have no any sound effects.
What's wrong with this?

Re: Sound effects again

Hello and welcome.

Here is a reference thread.

Can you post back the results of:

xfconf-query -c xsettings -lv | grep -i sound
env | grep GTK_MODULE
ls /usr/share/sounds/$(xfconf-query -c xsettings -p /Net/SoundThemeName)/stereo
which canberra-gtk-play

Re: Sound effects again

The freedesktop theme doesn't have many sound effect sounds that work with the libcanberra implementation. I modified an existing Borealis sound theme so that it would generate more sound effects (https://www.dropbox.com/s/bfyk05r4y8qog … lis.tar.gz). Or you can create your own sound theme based on the event names documented in the first link of this post.

But give my edited version of Borealis a try first. See if you get more sound events.

Edit: Here is another sound theme that seems to have many of the effects.

Re: Sound effects again

Oh, thank you! Sounds work now!
Tell me else please, does xfce4-terminal supports "bell"?

Have a read through the bug report that lead to the audible bell being added. It looks like there is more information there.
