How do I disable the system start sound in Linux Mint. I am talking about when you are presented with the login screen. There is a sound that accompanies the login screen. I tried to access a program called Sound after logging in, but it says that it cannot be found.

I'm using GNOME3, but I opened up gnome-session-properties, which are the instructions for disabling sound on gnome3, but nothing called GNOME Login Sound was listed. – egidra May 14 '12 at 16:09
i've update my post for gnome3 – Sibster May 14 '12 at 18:29

These settings didn't work for my LMDE. To permenantly fix this on gnome versions and mate desktops, install 'gnome-alsamixer' and mute beep settings.

This worked for me when disabling of random sound settings and blacklisting module didnt help.
