Dexter Sounds 1.0
------------------
Contains 5 sounds (3 for login window and 2 for system - startup and logout):
-login failed
-login successful
-login screen ready
-startup
-logout
Note:
I converted all sounds to mp3 because of the big size they had in wav format, you can convert them to wav with "mpg123".

all sounds recorded from dexter cartoon. Enjoy!

Although this may encounter copyright problems, still thanks for sharing this. And I thinks for personal use, this could be allowed couldnt it?

The startup isn't awful but the logout is so bad i couldn't understand what was said. I didn't bother listening to it more than once.

I am wondering about copyright... Not sure it falls under fair use. I guess since you aren't selling them or asking for donations it might be okay.

Good luck on your next endeavor.

I don't know if these would be covered under fair use.

At the very least, a CC license would be better than GPL.

IMO, these should be removed.

They're also pretty bad edits.

Thanks, but that wasn´t what i mean, what i mean is that once you convert the file, you go to System Preferences/Sounds and when i choose the converted file in the start up sound menu it won´t work. But i found out, that it was that you could only put ten seconds of a sound, that´s why it wans´t working, therefore when i try to convert the file it gives me an error. But just another thing, i used Quicktime to take 10 seconds of a sound and paste it on a new player, then export it to wav format. Is there any program that can do that it Ubuntu, cause as far as i know, there´s no Quicktime for Ubuntu.

---------------
sudo apt-get install mpg123
mpg123 -w somefile.wav somefile.mp3
---------------
somefile.mp3 is your mp3 file and somfile.wav is a file that will be created after the conversion.

Where are the login sounds located? I looked in /usr/share/sounds. I don't see them there.

For login sounds you can copy files anywhere you want, and then go to:
Administration->Login Window->Accessibility and choose files from there.

I don't have a Administration->Login Window->Accessibility in Fedora 9 64-bit. Could you give me a command to run that? Check what it is with alacarte or gnome-system-monitor.
