    My 09 Mac Pro trash won't make the normal trash sound when emptying the trash in SL. Does anyone know if this is for all SL users or how I can turn it back on? I like hearing the sound and don't like the fact that I have a glitch if this is one. Thanks

    Make sure "Play user interface sound effects" is checked, "Play sound effects through:" is set to the appropriate output device, and the Alert volume is up enough to hear.

    The settings are in System Preferences > Sound, Sound Effects.

    If they're all set correctly, try unchecking "Play user interface sound effects", then checking it again.

    (The sound effect works fine on two installs of SL here.)

    Glad that did it.

    btw - if you didn't find it yet, you can get to the input/output devices right in the menu bar by opt-clicking on the sound icon. It's kinda nice if you're running multiple devices.

    same problem

    hi, i have OS X 10.5.8 on my new macbook pro and the trash sound automatically went off. it doesn't make a sound when i put stuff into the trash, when i empty the trash or even when i'm in sound preferences and click on the different types of alert sounds (frog, basso, etc.) i didn't do anything to turn them off, they just didnt work one day randomly. i tried what is posted here but my "Play sound effects through:" box is set to internal speakers and is gray and inhabilitated. everything else looks ok. I'd hate for this to be a glitch when i just bought this mac 2 months ago. thanks
