When using Ubuntu 12.04 i've aquired the need to use the system Alert Sounds.
I've been trying to make my SSH Shell play Alert Beeps ( "\a" ) back to me, but to no avail,
I finally figured out that it's not the ssh session itself, but the Alert Sounds altogether.
I've tried almost all the solutions out there, these have no result
Ubuntu Tweaks echo -e "\a" Turning up the volume in System Settings -> Sounds -> Sound Effects /usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login" beep Changing the default Alert Sounds set to Ubuntu Copying files in /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo to /usr/share/sounds
What i have noticed
/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" --description="GNOME Login"
returns "Option parsing failed: Cannot open display:"
Going into System Settings -> Sounds -> Sound Effects and clicking on a sound makes it play, but when actually asking for the alert sound it wont play
The sounds wont play in "Guest" or other users either.
I'm using Gnome-Classic from package Gnome-Shell, but it also does not work in the default unity shell
Everything I have tried to get it to work returns no sounds whatsoever
Can anyone help me out with this one? I'm completely lost as to what else to try
