I am wanting to play a sound at Startup. All the internet sites suggest using a file located on the hard drive. Using Files program I find there is no directory for the sound file. The directory that the internet suggest is non existent. What is the solution?
Make a new directory. The directory isn’t important, as long as it doesn’t go anywhere.
What @taxed says is correct. However, if the directory starts with a dot, then it’s hidden from your file manager. Hitting CTRL+H will reveal all hidden files and folders. Pressing it again, will hide them back.
The reason I mention this is that all the configuration files, themes, etc. on Linux are behind a hidden folder.
Where do I get the sound file to put in the directory?
From some place that has sound files. Or, you can make one.
I installed canberra-gtk-play in Terminal, and tried to play it in Terminal/
Sorry @Taxed, I though you where answering another question i put on the forum.
