Ubuntu 14.04: how to replace default drum roll sound when login dialogue and shutdown PC with custom sound? Should I just rename these files and place instead of it my custom .ogg file with the same name?


  • Yes, but your question is probably a duplicate, please see, askubuntu.com/questions/138760/… – Michael Sep 18 '16 at 23:50
  • I my case, system-ready.ogg is "link to audio" (Link target: Dialog-question.ogg) - how to rename it? – minto Sep 21 '16 at 18:51

system-ready.ogg is just a symlink to dialog-question.ogg

desktop-login.ogg is an actual file

Personally, in your case:

A) I’d add the .ogg file(s) you want played to that directory.

B) Copy desktop-login.ogg to desktop-login-orig.ogg (and any others you want to replace).

C) Make symlinks from system-ready.ogg and desktop-login.ogg to the files you want played (and any others).

But this is no real difference than what is written on the other question...
