I have been using Sabayon 4.2 with the Gnome desktop since it was released. I have had all the usual newbie problems with kernel upgrades etc. but am steadily learning. I have little or no previous Linux experience and no programming or scripting knowledge.
This is not a major issue, but one of those niggles that I cannot find an answer to, no matter how hard I search.
How can I attach sounds to events, for example a startup or shutdown sound? The logical GUI based route ought to be through System/Preferences/Sound, but all I am seeing on the Sound Effects tab is a greyed out Alert Volume slider bar.
If it's necessary for me to use terminal commands I would appreciate clear instructions as to exactly what to type.
Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
