#16593 new bug

[Sounds] Some applications play a different sound on exit

Reported by: bitigchi Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: Unscheduled
Component: Preferences/Sounds Version: R1/beta2
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Platform: All



  • Download one of the sound theme candidates (I used this one.
  • Apply sound files to their respective entries
  • Restart (just in case)
  • Install Vim from HaikuDepot
  • Open/Close Vim


  • Window Close sound effect playback


  • It looks like a cropped part of the Startup sound is playing.

Currently Vim is the only application I can reproduce this on (sound in either case do not work anyway).

How do you reproduce this? Any patches or instructions to make the events sound or see what would play?

comment:2 by bitigchi, 20 months ago

Did you have any luck with the instructions above?

/me puts paper bag on

I'm sorry, you are right. I had only assigned the window events ones. In my case what I get on closing vim is clearly the Beep sound.

If you also get the Beep sound instead of the Startup one, that'd be the vim port, not Haiku's sound system.

On quit, a "ESC :qa" command is sent. If you are already in command mode, that ESC is what causes a beep.

Ah, fair enough. Thanks for investigating. I guess we can leave it as is, unless someone has a better idea.
