Here is an easy way to add Shutdown sound to ubuntu and it's off shoot's !

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install music123

Code: Select all

sudo gedit /etc/init.d/K99shutdownsound.sh

Code: Select all

## play shutdown sound
/usr/bin/music123 /path/to/your/shutdown.mp3

Code: Select all

sudo chmod +x /etc/init.d/K99shutdownsound.sh

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/K99shutdownsound.sh /etc/rc0.d/K99shutdownsound.sh

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/K99shutdownsound.sh /etc/rc6.d/K99shutdownsound.sh

And now you have a shutdown sound. Just make sure you're not going to play a 5 minute mp3 file, since the system won't halt until it finishes streaming the file. plays .mp3, ogg, wave, and .oga files ypu can install vorbis-tools

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install vorbis-tools

to play other types of sound files !
