1- Remove login screen question sound
When the login screen appears, Ubuntu plays a “drum drum” ready sound. It is really annoying when I am in a public place like public library… Let’s image that the whole other people will look at your computer when they here that drum drum sound. It is really awkward huh?
Recently I have a temporary solution to disable that annoying sound, but it should work all Ubuntu version.
Open the terminal, Applications>Accessories>Teminal and run nautilus by the command:
Then locate to /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo Now, just rename the file “dialog-question.ogg” for ex: CUONG-dialog-question.ogg
2- Disable GNOME Login Sound
Go to menu System>Preferences>Startup Applications then just UNCHECK GNOME Login Sound
It is quite simple. You just install NTFS Configuration Tool.
NTFS Configuration Tool
Enable/disable write support for any NTFS devices
This program allow you to easily configure all of your NTFS devices to allow write support via a friendly gui. For that use, it will configure them to use the open source ntfs-3g driver. You’ll also be able to easily disable this feature.

It provides the No-IP.com Dynamic DNS update client.
When configured correctly, the client will check the local IP address at a given time interval. If it has changed, the client will notify No-IP.com DNS servers and update the IP address for your No-IP/No-IP+ host name.
It is quite simple to install it like other. In the Synaptic Pakeage Manager, search with the key word: noip2
then right click on it and choose Mark for Installation. Then Apply.
Next step, you just need to provide no-ip username and password, that all. Certainly, you can provide more information, just follow its instruction.
To start it, in the terminal: type “sudo noip2″
And it should be noted that you should remember to “open port”/or create port forwarding (ex 80) before to make your domain.no-ip works properly. You can find out many articles about it on the Net.
