    I know right, Im a big UBUNTU fan, I use it in both my Laptop and Desktop PCs more often than Windows, but is little things like that what I dont understand. Other example: What happen with the Screesavers and why is that difficult to reactivate it. I love Ubuntu, but that is the kind of stuff that doesnt makes it be as popular as other OS. No popularity = not many developers interested to work in the system = slow development.

    Don’t blame Ubuntu, blame Gnome 3 who doesn’t come with screensavers and no login sound.

    I guest you have to do it this way
    /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play –id=”desktop-login” –description=”GNOME Login sound”

    Hi guys,

    Just a note to say: copy the Command: /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play –id=”desktop-login” –description=”GNOME Login sound” without the word “sound” at the end, then it will work so copy this:
    Command: /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play –id=”desktop-login” –description=”GNOME Login”
    It worked for me like that!

    it is a nice fix but I was looking for how to change it from drab gnome login sound to, iron maiden’s fear of the dark, or to any other song clip of my choosing
