Gnome Sounds

The Gnome Desktop offers a rich audio experience to those who choose to enable it. The goal is to enhance the computing experience with the use of subtle audio feedback. This is accomplished by adding click and tick sounds to form and menu events and soft tones to message notifications. The original sounds were obtained from The Free Sound Project and in many cases are played unaltered.

Installation

Installation Script

  1. Download the following files
  2. Open a terminal session and login as root
    • ie. $ su <return>
  3. Navigate to the folder containing the above files
    • ie. # cd myDownloads
  4. Execute InstallFedoraSounds script
  5. Respond <y> when asked "Install Fedora Sounds y/N?"
    • ie. Install Fedora Sounds y/N? y <return>
  6. Close terminal window when script is done
    • ie. "All done ..."

Enable Sounds

★ If this is a new installation of Fedora 7 or sounds events have not been enabled, then follow these steps.

  1. Open Sound Preferences

Artwork F8Themes GnomeSounds SoundSetupHelp.png

  1. Select the Sounds^1^ tab.
  2. (./) Check Play system sounds^2^
  3. System Sounds should match this
  4. Close dialog window
  5. Log out to activate new sound theme


Login

The login event has three tones associated with it; login ready, login successful, and login failed. The most common event to have a tone associated with it is the Login Screen Ready event.

Changing this option requires su authorization.

  1. Select the Accessibility^1^ tab.
  2. (./) Check Login screen ready^2^
  3. Optional Login successful^3^
  4. Optional Login failed^3^

~-Note. I found the use of the "Login successful" and "Login failed" events [3] resulted in questionable results from system to system.-~
