How Flux got his Groove back

One thing you may (or may not) miss upon switching to Fluxbox in Ubuntu is the happy startup jingle. But fear not! You can get it back, via the instructions listed in the Ubuntu guide:

sudo apt-get install sox
gedit ~/.fluxbox/startup
  • Find this line:
exec /usr/local/bin/fluxbox
  • Put this above it somewhere:
play /usr/share/sounds/login.wav > /dev/null 2>&1 &

I did this, exited flux, logged back in, and the happy sound greeted me.
