Ubuntu Gets a Remastered 5.1 Surround Log-in Sound!

If you have installed a 5.1 Surround Sound system on your computer that happens to be running Ubuntu Linux instead of MS Windows :D, then wouldn't it be nice if you could make/add an awesome 5.1 surround log-in sound?.

I mean, of course you can find a 5.1 audio file but wouldn't it make everything so much better if we somehow find a re-mastered 5.1 version of the current official Ubuntu Log-in sound?. Well, thanks to Dustin Kirkland (an Ubuntu core developer and an active member of the Ubuntu Server development staff), we now actually have a re-mastered, official 5.1 surround sound for Ubuntu!.
"my life be like oooooh  aaaaaaah, oooooooh " ;-)...
Although I don't have a 5.1 system thus I haven't tested it (because I can't! :/) but Dustin is kind enough to provide us with a PPA channel which makes the installation is A breeze!.

So, as a result, you can install the 5.1 log-in sound in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal, 11.10, 10.10 and 10.04 by using the below commands.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:kirkland/sound

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sounds
Now, log-out of the system and re-login and if everything went well then you should hear it:

Starting off with the center speaker, going towards the front left and right channels then going into the back left/right speakers while the bongo rocking the hell out of your world using your Sub Woofer!. Enjoy!.
