Binary package hint: xsplash

When you log into Karmic using a Gnome session, you get a drum sound. There are many situations where you need a silent boot process, but it appears that this is impossible under Karmic.

In Jaunty and previous, you could configure gdm to log you in silently. This configuration has been removed from Karmic. Even opening Sound Preferences and choosing "No sounds" for "Sound theme" or disabling window and button sounds does not prevent the login sound from occurring.

Users must have the ability to login silently.
