No system sounds in Debian LXDE

Postby mef » 2017-07-02 07:57

I have Jessie LXDE on my pc and Stretch LXDE on a laptop, and both have no system sounds: like notifications, clicks etc. Can it be that LXDE, being a stripped down environment, doesn't provide any system sounds at all? And if so, is there a way to configure them? I basically need to hear a sound when I get new desktop notifications.

I think you might be right. However, a lot of GTK applications for example will use Gnome's sounds if the packages are installed. Search the repositories for system sounds.

Thank you. I've looked, but couldn't find any suitable packages to enable sounds. That's a bit disappointing since I've kinda grown to like LXDE)

arochester, I already have it installed. It doesn't solve the problem.

Do you have pavucontrol and have you experimented with that?

Yes. But it doesn't provide any customization for system sounds apart from volume controls. I guess, that must be some part of the desktop environment, and LXDE doesn't have it.
