Swoosh.. swoosh … when switching workspaces. Some lasers shoot in the distance as I plug in my USB stick… the kids are properly impressed… and I’m already annoyed at the amount of noise my desktop generates.
Of course it’s configurable and right now it’s configured to put a smile on the kids’ face :)
You guessed it: Cinnamon 2.0 will feature the ability to configure individual sound events.
In Mint 16 the login theme will make a come back and it will be played by Cinnamon itself. MDM will continue to be able to play sounds as well, but will default to paplay (vs /usr/bin/play) and lose its Sound Effects page in MDMSetup (playing sounds in MDM will still be possible but not recommended). Finally, I had a talk with Stefano from the MATE development team and this might be added to the roadmap for MATE 1.8.
