Managing audio alerts

Globally silencing sounds

The file nosound.wav can be used to globally disable audio alerts for a specific event on an Evergreen system.

For example, to silence the alert that sounds after a successful patron search:

mkdir -p /openils/var/web/audio/notifications/success/patron/
cd /openils/var/web/audio/notifications/success/patron/
ln -s ../../nosound.wav by_search.wav

Self-check interface

Sounds may play at certain events in the self check interface. These events are defined in the templates/circ/selfcheck/audio_config.tt2 template. To use the default sounds, you could run the following command from your Evergreen server as the root user (assuming that /openils/ is your install prefix):

cp -r /openils/var/web/xul/server/skin/media/audio /openils/var/web/.
