Why mp3 instead of Ogg Vorbis? No license issues, works on all free systems, gives way better sound on all bitrates... Just an idea, so...

I was able to preview the end sound in System > Preferences > Sound > Sounds tab.

But when I restart or shutdown, the end sound isn't audible. I have selected the 'play system sounds' checkbox. The start sound has no problems.

I'm not sure about the Yamaha sound module you mentioned. Does it have something to do with my set-up?

under sabayon i have no problem, but
i can try to control the sound in this day.
the yamaha module is the Keyboard
in a rack format, not a program.

I once again had to load the sound in Audacity and export it. I guess Gnome on certain distros (Ubuntu in my case) can be especially fussy. :(

fantastic sounds!!!

About to convert, my prefered method to convert music in every format to wav is using mplayer, in the console just type:

mplayer miArchivo.mp3 -ao pcm

then, in the directory a audiodump.wav was created.

Sorry if you dont understand but mi lenguage is spanish.

I had a great deal of difficulty converting the MP3's to a usable WAV so that Gnome could use them. In case anyone else is having the same problem, you have to use Audacity. Do not use the "Sound Converter" program in Ubuntu Gutsy. While Sound Converter will create a WAV file that can be previewed and played in Totem, Gnome itself will be fussy and usually not like it. The version exported from Audacity has not yet given me trouble.

Mentalrey: I don't suppose you'd be kind enough to post .WAV versions of the sounds that are usable with Gnome?

mmm.. i have not posted the .wav only for the weight of file.
when i remake the End file i can posted them and not an mp3, no problem.

I hope you'll keep the existing End around, maybe as an alternative in the .zip. I currently use "Start" when GDM comes up, and "End" when I log in... --because despite Ubuntu's speed improvements Gnome still takes its sweet time starting up. :)

I really like them.
But i do agree that the end seems a little bit long.
They are currently added to my system.
Great Job!
