[disco] no notification sounds

Hi everybody,

I’m trying Ubuntu Disco, works great so far, but it seems there is no way to enable the notification sounds.

The volumes are all fine, and for example the “warning sound” works (it is played for example when using the “search” function of Firefox and searching for a non-existing string, or by running ‘printf \a’ in a terminal). Still the notification from Firefox, Thunderbird (new mail notification), Signal (signal-desktop snap) do not produce any sound. The same happens if I run “notify-send test” from a terminal: the notification bubble appears, but no sound is played.

In Settings -> Notifications, the “Sound Alerts” are enabled for all the applications.

How do I enable the notification sounds?

This site is for the co-ordination of the Ubuntu project(s), and not support.

For Ubuntu Support options, please have a look at https://community.ubuntu.com/t/finding-help/712

Please note some of those sites do not support Ubuntu 19.04 until it’s release (eg. ask.ubuntu), however others do support development releases for example irc do in the ubuntu+1 channel.

Sorry I’m not a gnome user, so can’t help with your issue anyway
