 How to restore login sound after enabling automatic login on Linux Mint 14 Mate & Cinnamon


On Linux Mint if you enable automatic login, you lose your login sound. Here's how you can restore it on both Cinnamon an Mate editions:

1- Enable login sound on Cinnamon:

Go to System>Preferences>Startup Applications and added "GNOME Login Sound" with the following description:

Name:              GNOME Login Sound
Command:      /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login"
Comment:       Plays a sound whenever you log in

to test sound in terminal, run:

/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login"




2- Enable login sound on Mate:

Go to System>Preferences>Startup Applications and added "GNOME Login Sound" with the following description:

Name:               GNOME Login Sound
Command:       paplay /usr/share/sounds/LinuxMint/stereo/desktop-login.ogg
Comment:        Plays a sound whenever you log in


to test sound in terminal, run:

 
paplay /usr/share/sounds/LinuxMint/stereo/desktop-login.ogg
