In Ubuntu 16.04, when I powered on my computer, the drum roll sound would be played right before I was presented with the Login interface. After I upgraded to Ubuntu 17.10 the drum roll sound is no longer being played. I did some research on the web and tried the following, which enabled the drum roll sound to be played, but only after I had logged in.
I launched Startup Applications Preferences and added an item that contained the following.
/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="desktop-login" -f /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg
But this only enabled the sound to be played after I had already logged in.
I also tried
/usr/bin/canberra-gtk-play --id="system-ready" -f /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/system-ready.ogg
But that had the same effect as the other attempt; the drum roll sound played only after I had logged in.
So I am asking whether anyone has found a way to enable the drum roll sound to play before the user has logged in, when the user is presented with the login dialog.
I also tried --id="system-bootup" which should have brought up the drum roll sound much earlier. But even with that setting, the drum roll sound was not played until after I logged in.
