Ultimate Edition 4.3 Add Login Sound??(Solved)

Postby ninjawarrior » Sun May 17, 2015 5:36 pm

I have been using Star Sapphire for some time now and really like the sound intro in the login screen or the Plymouth screen (having a woman’s voice asking in the login screen has turned a few heads of my friends!). I was wondering how to, maybe add that wave file to the login screen in Ultimate Edition 4.3, if possible.I have Ultimate Edition 4.3 installed on an other computer an really like it. Since the login sound intro is in Star Sapphire, can it be added to the login on Ultimate Edition 4.3? Also Ultimate Edition 4.3 only has KDE and XBMC as desktop environments. Would I need to install a gnome DE in Ultimate Edition 4.3 ?
I have a solution for gnome - https://www.ultimateeditionoz.com/forum ... und#p48727
But Ultimate Edition 4.3 doesn`t have gnome. I looked high and low in the KDE systems settings and found nothing useful there.. :vil2_jumelles

First off, I used the information from this link: https://www.ultimateeditionoz.com/forum ... nd#p487270 . This solution does work, but Ultimate Edition 4.3 only has KDE and XMBC as desktop environments. So, in order to make use of this solution I added the Gnome desktop environment to Ultimate Edition 4.3. I used this option to add the Gnome desktop: http://itsfoss.com/how-to-install-gnome ... ntu-14-04/ From that point I was able to go to Applications>System Tools>Startup Applications and added "GNOME Login Sound" with the following description in the GUI:

Startup Applications Preferences_001.png


Name: GNOME Login Sound
Command: /usr/share/sounds/system-ready.ogg
Comment: Plays a sound whenever you log in

Edit Startup Program_002.png


You can use whatever sound file you wish but, I installed the one shown here in the following directory: /usr/share/sounds . I also had to modify the permissions of the file so that it would play (even though I had root access when I moved that file to that location, I still needed to change the files permissions). This is kind of a general description of how I did this, but it did work and I kind of like having the greeting. :)

I guess in retrospect my original directions for changing KDE sounds was rather vague but in my defense, this is one of the first things I learned to do and was very excited when I posted it. I even added this particular sound scheme to Diamond2BKDE.

Here is a more detailed way to change KDE Sound Settings, Specifically the Login Sound for Ultimate Edition, specifically on Ultimate Edition 4.3 64. I don't run Ultimate Edition too often so I wanted to do this while it still sat on my drive unmolested.


To verify, this is Ultimate Edition 4.3

It's pretty stock, though I have removed a couple things, like yarssr that do not really work with KDE.
It is completely updated, upgraded, but still LTS Trusty

Go To System Settings

Go To Application and System Notifications

Go To Manage Notifications-->Event Source and click where it says Accessibility

Find KDE Workspace and click on it.

Go To Login

Check the box next to Play a Sound

Click on the File Icon to the right of the box that was just checked.

This will open directly to the sounds location, go to either of the Ultimate Edition Sound Scheme Folders

Choose a Sound File, maybe desktop-login or something, idk, go crazy (For the record, if I am making my own sounds I always use .ogg but Windows Sound will do)

Click Apply

and that's it!
