I'm pretty sure this has nothing to do with Xfce, because Xfce
have sound effects. Have you enabled "Launch Gnome Services on startup"
in "Sessions and Startup"? If so, this might come from Gnome and you
need to configure it with gnome-sound-properties.
So, yeah, I've tried that, and it gives me an error:
Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.
Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take
effect. This could indicate a problem with Bonobo, or a non-GNOME (e.g.
KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME
However, I am able to make changes there, like disabling "system sounds",
and the choices I make persist -- and the sounds don't go away no matter
what I do.
