How do i change the start up background music in Ubuntu and can i add any customized music for startup? What are the various ways of setting this?
If you want another sound during login you can do it this way from a terminal sesson:
replace the file
with the soundfile you want. You can do it like this (including backup):
sudo cp desktop-login.ogg desktop-login.ogg.old sudo cp ~/Downloads/dekstop-login.ogg .
if your new file is inside your home's Download directory. I have not seen a default application where you can do this.
And yes, you can create a custom sound from for instance a music clip with
audacity. Just make sure you save it as
ogg and do not make it too long.
You can also do it like this. From commandline
This will open Nautilus as root. Now navigate to your new file, rightclick and
copy it. Navigate to
/usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo and click on
desktop-login.ogg, press F2, and add .old to the name. Then click on some free space, rightclick and choose
/usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg is a symbolic link to dialog-question.ogg. Therefore, remove the symbolic link and copy the sound you want to system-ready.ogg:
sudo rm /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg sudo cp myfunkysound.ogg /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg
To restore the original conditions after doing the above, do this:
sudo rm /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg cd /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/ ln -s dialog-question.ogg system-ready.ogg
