11.04: Remove startup sound
Going to System -> Startup programs and unchecking GNOME Login Sound is one part of it. You may also do this: sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 –type=bool –set /desktop/gnome/sound/event_sounds false Source: http://blog.justin.kelly.org.au/how-to-disable-the-gdm-pre-login-music-in-ubu/ This doesn't either remove the drums. As the sound is in the GDM login manager, we need to attack that to fix this. (This tip is from http://tacticalvim.wordpress.com/2009/11/27/disable-gdm-ready-sound-in-ubuntu-9-10-karmic/) Alternative A - fix it through an editor: 1. Press ALT+F2, type this into Run dialog: gksu gconf-editor 2. navigate to: /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/settings-manager-plugins/sound/ 3. untick the active key in order to disable the login ready drums sound 3. restart completely (easy way) or restart just GDM (hard way) Alternative B - rename the sound file: - open a terminal and type: cd /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/ sudo mv system-ready.ogg system-ready.ogg-OFF
