This page is related to my alarm clock bash script, inspired from this example.

The following features were added :

  • Automatic output level increase in order to be sure the sound is not muted
  • Kill of existing Pulseaudio sessions, which can lock the audio playing.

To find a *efficient* audio file, the Wikipedia page related to US navy submarines alarms is just perfect; especially with the recording of the “missile jettison alarm“.

The script is available here, and requires mplayer, zenity and amixer as dependancies.
