In this tutorial I am going to tell you how to properly activate the sounds I mentioned in the title .
- Install libcanberra (if not already installed).
1.1 In terminal .
sudo apt-get install libcanberra-pulse
*2. Install a sound theme .
2.1 They can be found in software center.
2.2 They can be found on search engines (search for linux sound themes).
(For installation tutorial from internet see this.
# Lets use Sonar sound theme from here.
Due to a bug in canbbera the sounds have to be in default theme folder (freedosktop)
*3. Now lets copy our startup sounds from the sonar sound theme to freedesktop sound theme . :
sudo cp /usr/share/sounds/sonar/stereo/system-ready.oga /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/system-bootup.oga
sudo cp /usr/share/sounds/sonar/stereo/system-shutdown.oga /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/system-shutdown.oga
3.1 This would work with any “.oga” file as they are named “system-bootup” and “system-shutdown”. Also they have to be in /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/ folder
*4. Enable the systemd canberra services
sudo systemctl enable canberra-system-bootup.service
sudo systemctl enable canberra-system-shutdown-reboot.service
sudo systemctl enable canberra-system-shutdown.service
*5. On next reboot you should have those sounds . Feel free to ask if something isn’t right .
