Re: Playing a sound in GNOME

Here is a version that you can copy and paste:
#include <gst/gst.h>

gnome_play_sound_background (
     gchar *uri)
 GMainLoop *loop;
 GstElement *play;
 GstBus *bus;

 /* init GStreamer */
 gst_init (0 ,NULL);
 loop = g_main_loop_new (NULL, FALSE);

 /* set up */
 play = gst_element_factory_make ("playbin", "play");
 g_object_set (G_OBJECT (play), "uri", uri, NULL);

 bus = gst_pipeline_get_bus (GST_PIPELINE (play));
 gst_object_unref (bus);

 gst_element_set_state (play, GST_STATE_PLAYING);

 /* now run */
 g_main_loop_run (loop);

 /* also clean up */
 gst_element_set_state (play, GST_STATE_NULL);
 gst_object_unref (GST_OBJECT (play));

 return 0;

main (int   argc,
     char *argv[])
 if (argc != 2) {
   g_print ("Usage: %s <URI>\n", argv[0]);
   return -1;


 return 0;

And it works

I'm sure it does, but it's a lot more complicated than the hypothetical:

gnome_play_sound_background ("alert.wav");
