I’d be happy if someone could explain to me how I can enable startup sound in Manjaro Gnome flavor? In Ubuntu there’s a program called “Startup”, where you can enter custom commands or scripts. In Manjaro this tool is missing, but there’s this “optimization” app, where you can add programs to startup, but just not commands.
I’m probably just to blind to find the solution, so any hint would be greatly appreciated
There’s the option to add programs and applications but that’s just not what I need. I’d need to add this /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login" but I can’t in Gnome Tweaks
Where I’ve added </path/to/sound/file> and it should be the full path to the sound file.
Also, it seems you are trying to play it with the GTK front-end (the canberra-gtk-play kind of gives it away) so it’ll open the player, I think. If that’s not what you want, look into the mplayer option I gave you earlier.
Now where you’re saying it I agree. However, the exact command works like a charm in Ubuntu (I know Arch != Ubuntu, just wondering). I think the issue is, that Manjaro Gnome doesn’t ship with the Ubuntu login sound file in the first place.
I’ve been looking at the default path (/usr/share/sounds) and there’s no startup sound file inherent.
The question would now be where I can find/get the standard start up sound file, regardless if I play it with gtk or your suggested mplayer solution
Are we miscommunicating? I’m not on Ubuntu, but on Manjaro with Gnome It does make sense that it would exist on standard Ubuntu, but not on Manjaro + Gnome no?
However, it most definitely is related to something not being present or different than to standard Ubuntu. And I’ve now at least learned how I can play any sound at startup, so it’s all good! I’ll just search the web for something I like instead, so thank you
