Question Problem with event sounds in ubuntu lucid-lynx. (may be related to canberra-gtk-play)


Hi,

I recently installed ubuntu lucid-lynx on a sun virtualbox instance. I have emulated an audio controller "ICH AC97" for this.

After installing everything worked perfectly. However recently the sounds in my theme are not working.

1. The Drum sounds are working when the login prompt is shown.

2. Welcome sound is NOT working when I provide the password and system log into gnome session.

3. I tried enabling system sounds for button clicks & window events, but they too are not working.

4. I CAN still play the sound files without any problem.

5. After I logout sound evens ARE working at login prompt. (If I give a wrong password I here those drum sounds)

It seems that only system sounds are not working. The volume level is set to about 75% checked with the volume applet & alsamixer.

I would be very much grateful if you could kindly guide me on how I might be able to fix this.

Thanks in advance,
Uditha Bandara

Hi again,

While trying to figure out the problem I noticed that there is a "canberra-gtk-play" command listed under startup applications and guessed that should be what play the desktop-login sound.

So I issued the same command in a command prompt to test. I noticed that the after issuing it that something runs (with no audible or visible output, cursor in the prompt disappear) for the duration of the sound clip and then returns to the shell. But no audio sound.

I tried replacing the event option with a audio file (.ogg) and got the same results.

Running the command using "sudo canberra-gtk-play" gave similar results.

Could this be related to canberra ? I have no idea what canberra is or how to configure it.

I would be very much grateful if you could kindly guide me on how I might be able to fix this.

Thanks in advance,
Uditha Bandara

10.04 is a bit past its EOL.

When you get this problem fixed you should consider some OS that is supported.
