How to turn off / stop drum sounds of the login page of Ubuntu mate 22.04lts

I would like to stop drum sounds of the login page (Ubuntu Mate 22.04lts).
Please let me know the way to do it.

Probably not answer maybe check in
Control Center / Personal / Startup Applications and look for
Login Sound, if there uncheck.
In my system I did not have and wanted a start sound and enabled it by

Note: To Add Login Sound
Control Center/Personal/Startup Applications
Startup Programs/+Add
Name: Login Sound
Command: paplay /usr/share/sounds/Yaru/stereo/desktop-login.oga
Comment: Sound On Login Of System (Optional)
Note: Can create a desktop launcher to test without rebooting

Not sure if this is what you are talking about. Didn't think it was enabled by default.

Hello again, mendy
Thank you for your kind suggestion.

Your comment gave me a key to find the very sound file that annoyed me.
The sound file is /usr/share/sounds/arctia-greeter/stereo/system-ready.ogg.
It sounds like some drum.
I renamed the file so that the system could not find it any longer.
Now I don't hear the drum sound.
(By using another file given the name "system-ready.ogg", I may hear a better log-in sound.)

Hi @km-km,

you can configure arctica-greeter and disable login sound.

  1. Create file /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/40_arctica-greeter.gschema.override
  2. Contents:
  3. Run sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ to recompile schemas
  4. Relogin

Hope this helps


Hello ironfoot,
Thank you for your kind answer.

I less often use the terminal because I am just a beginner of Linux.
So I don't hate my elementary way to solve this problem of mne.
( I could change the login sound by some of my favorite sounds, using this way. )

Anyway, thanks again.

You are welcome @km-km!

better to disable the actual process, as renaming the file does nothing to stop the file from launching. Not a big deal, but the system will wait until it gives up finding the file. Sorry I don't know how to do that. Also an update may restore the file at a later date.
