On Windows, the
Sounds & Multimedia control panel allows the connection of sound snippets to various operating system events, like window movements, process start/stop, and start-up/shutdown.
I am using GNOME on Fedora 13, and I have not had any luck discovering any similar functionality. Does such a function exist? If so, is it cross-window-manager-compatible or tied to a specific window manager (GNOME, KDE, etc.) or distribution?
