I just was wondering how you can add sound affects i.e. start up sound effect, minimize windows etc. to ubuntu 14.10. I know this is possible in KDE, but how to go about doing this in ubuntu?


There are certain sounds built in. Open the DConf Editor (Alt+F2 and then type dconf-editor) and navigate to org.gnome.desktop.sound. Make sure to select both the checkboxes. Make sure the sound scheme name is "ubuntu" if you just want the default sounds.

To install DConf editor if you haven't installed it already, find it on Synaptic or do sudo apt update && sudo apt install dconf-editor in the terminal.
