#15295 new bug

System sounds not played when triggered

Reported by: ArDrakho Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Kits/Media Kit Version: R1/beta1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking: #16595
Platform: All

Description (last modified by diver)

I placed my collection of system sounds into the '/boot/home/config/settings/Sounds' directory. Then, I assigned some of these tested sounds via the 'Sounds' preferences applet to the following system sound options:

  • Beep
  • Error notification
  • Important notification
  • Information notification
  • Key down
  • Key up
  • Mouse down
  • Mouse up
  • Progress notification
  • Startup
  • Window activated
  • Window close
  • Window minimized
  • Window open
  • Window restored
  • Window zoomed

After rebooting and/or restarting the Media Services, fifteen of the assigned sounds are not activated (i.e. played) when a triggering event occurs. The only system sound that is played when triggered is 'Beep'.

NOTE: The 'Startup' sound issue is being address in #1902.

Having a look now, I think most of these (mouse/keyboard and window events) could be triggered with a DesktopListener.

A DesktopListener might be a bit much, though. Desktop and Window could be used instead, not sure where might be best for some events.

I think we should start with the easy and useful ones: startup sound (play it at media server start, that's how BeOS did it), and error/important/info/progress notifications (in notification_server).

The window ones should probably be somewhere in app_server? And the keyboard/mouse ones in input_server?

Also reported in #17150 (along with some pref screen UI issues)
