Help I Lost the Login Sound

After a recent update, I have lost my login sound

Here's a simple fix.

Ensure that you have the package oxygen-sounds installed.

Using your favorite text editor as the root user enter the following


[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/usr/bin/paplay /usr/share/sounds/Oxygen-Sys-Log-In-Short.ogg
Name=Plasma Desktop Startup Sound
Type=Application
X-KDE-StartupNotify=false
OnlyShowIn=KDE;
Icon=plasma
NoDisplay=true


Save the file under the name org.kde.plasma_startup_sound.desktop in your /etc/xdg/autostart folder.

The next time you start your machine you should have your login sound back.
