No GNOME Desktop Login Sound after Login to Fedora 12

This is a minor problem, but some users might want to listen to a welcome tune after login to Fedora 12.

First, get a copy of desktop login tune (desktop-login.ogg) from Fedora 11. You can also download from here: desktop-login.ogg

Then copy this file to the folder /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo

Logout and login again, you should be able to hear the login tune after login.

If there is still no desktop login sound,  select: System >> Preference >>Startup Applications

Ensure that the application “GNOME login sound” is check. Click edit and make sure that the command /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play –id=”desktop-login” –description=”GNOME Login” is available.

Depends on the sound drivers and the sound system initiation procedure, some system may not be able to play the sound.

    Yeah, seems they removed the login sound and the logout sound in the 0.7 brach of sound-theme-freedesktop package.

    2009-09-28 remove desktop login/logout for now
