How to Turn Off Startup Sound
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 9, 2009
This has been asked before, but since Gnome has once again gone through some major UI changes, it bears re-asking.
How do you turn off the Ubuntu startup sound? It used to be System->Preferences->Sound, then scroll to the "startup" sound and disable. But in 9.10, this interface is gone and instead replaced with a "Sound Effect", "Hardware", "Input", "Output", and "Applications" tab. There's no list of the individual sounds played. I tried selecting "No sounds" for the "Sound theme" dropdown, but that annoying dumming sound still plays when the login screen comes up. How do you disable that?
How to turn off UbuntuOne SignUp on StartUp...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 21, 2010
It is nice to be offered to sign up to something. But, since I'm not ready to sign up and I want to free my Nautilus from considerable startup delay due to UbuntuOne, I would prefer to be able to skip automatic opening of WEBBrowser with this offer every time i boot any of several machines of mine...
Is is possible to turn it off?
Yes, I've tried to answer "Cancel"...
I'm afraid that, if I were to give all the information, I would not be able to turn it off never...
OK, I succumbed... On one machine it stopped after I've sign up, checked and unchecked that machine. Even though , now, have to enter keyring pass every time I boot...
On second machine, I can not pass the keyring authentication even though I have proper pass and I'm the only one that have ever seen or touched this machine and this Maverick installation... I've never changed any pass-es on this machine, from the installation... Everything other works with that pass, sudo, gksu, everythi

How do I turn off that beeping sound in Fedora 15?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2011
I don't use Facebook that much, so I was never aware of this. But in Fedora 15, everytime I get a message, it makes a beeping sound. It did not do this in Kubuntu, Ubuntu, SalixOS, Slackware, Windows Vista (yeah, I like Vista better than any other Windows application compilation), or any other OS that I have that I can't think of right now.
I've tried to search around, but I can't find anything that looks like the switch to turn it off. It's going off right now. How do I turn it off?
How do I turn off sound effects?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 14, 2012
I don't know whether this is a problem in my computer or a general bug, but my Sound Effects tab under Sound Settings contains only a list of alert sounds and an alert volume, which is on 'Off', but this makes no difference: I keep hearing those annoying effects.
Is there a way to get rid of them beside deleting the sound files that contain them?
What makes me suspect that there might be a specific problem in my computer is that under the speaker testing dialog (in the Hardware tab of Sound Settings) makes no sound, although sounds from all applications (and, sadly, also the annoying built-in sound effects) are heard.

how to turn off crash reporting in Xubuntu?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 5, 2013
I'm using Xubuntu 12.04, and when a program crashes, I get the popup dialog alerting me about it. I usually uncheck the option to send an error report, but several times I've forgotten it's there in my rush to make the dialog go away and get back to whatever I was doing. The option is checked by default, but I never feel the need to send a crash report and am wary of sending any sensitive information, so I'd like to either turn that off by default or eliminate the crash dialog entirely. (I'd still like to be able to use ubuntu-bug manually when it's really necessary, however.) The information about the error tracker here mentions privacy settings that don't exist in Xfce, so I'm not sure how to do this. Does anyone know?
Also, does Xfce have any options anywhere for privacy settings? I realized I have no idea how they are set on my system, if they are even relevant to Xubuntu. Thanks!

How do I turn off my laptop monitor when using an external display?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2010
So I have an Acer 5100 series that works absolutely flawlessly with Ubuntu. Recently, I purchased an external monitor and keyboard and they're working fine too. But I want to turn my laptop display off when I connect my external monitor and can't find out how to do it.
I found a few places on Google that mention going to System > Preferences > Display but I notice that 'Display' isn't available on my system for some reason. The menu jumps right from 'CompizConfig' to 'IBus Preferences'.
Can anyone help?
How do i turn off monitor autodetection
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 8, 2007
What is the option in xorg.conf to turn off monitor auto detection?
I'm trying to boot with my monitor turned off and it always comes up as 800x600 with no other choice, whereas if the monitor is on, it has lots of choices.
This messes up my plan to use it via remote vnc-viewer where I want it to have a larger screen resolution. I read a thread that said turn off auto-detection of the monitor, but I can't find out how to do that.
