Ubuntu – No startup sound in ubuntu 11.10


I installed ubuntu 11.10 4 days ago. When I login into my account the startup/login sound does not play. But when I logged in with a guest account, the sound plays. This is happening since I installed ubuntu 11.10, I never heard the login sound when I log into my account. And by the way, this is a fresh install. Please help.

Best Answer

sudo cp /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/* /usr/share/sounds/

Do this in a terminal and your login sound should play. The above command copies the content of directory /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo to directory /usr/share/sounds
