Ubuntu Sound Gallery could make finding and installing sound themes easy

Filed under
Ubuntu

Have you ever installed a sound theme in Ubuntu? No? Well you wouldn’t be alone. Finding extra sound themes for Ubuntu is a task and half in and of itself, and that’s before the rather archaic installation process.

Dylan McCall, seemingly frustrated by the lack of refinement in packaging and promoting of sound themes for Ubuntu, has ideas on how finding and installing sound themes in Ubuntu could be made better. He’s knocked up a prototype ‘Sound theme gallery’ where one can preview sound themes without the need to download. Also provided are download links and a quick ‘how-to’ on installing Sound themes in Ubuntu.

You can visit the gallery, which is a prototype/proof of concept rather than a fully stocked audio armoury, at the link below.

Ubuntu sound gallery

LOL what's the point of installing sound themes in Ubuntu!? System sounds in Gnome - including the Unity-fied one - are total garbage to the core. Logout and empty trash sounds aren't even produced no matter what workaround you try, and the rest is so sketchy to the point that is a joke.

Reglue at LibrePlanet

  • LibrePlanet & the Sounds of Silence
    My sponsor for attending LibrePlanet was John Sullivan, the executive director of the Free Software Foundation, and I was surprised that he took the time to get me shown around. I wanted to kiddingly say to John, “Hey, you got people to do this, right?” I didn’t because I was afraid the humor would not have translated well…and I’m not sure it did here either.
  • Have You Decided Yet?
    On March 21st of this year, the Free Software Foundation presented our organization Reglue with the Award for Projects of Social Benefit. We share that announcement link with Sébastien Jodogne for being given the Award for the Advancement of Free Software. We're specifically thankful that people like Sean "NZ17" Robinson spearheaded this nomination campaign and got us into the running.

Hisense And Haier Launch $149 Chromebooks

A few weeks ago Google made headlines with the launch of the new Chromebook Pixel, the highest-end Chromebook on the market (and with a price to show for it). Today, the Chrome OS laptop ecosystem is launching two products that are the exact opposite: the Haier Chromebook 11 (now available online at Amazon) and the Hisense Chromebook (now available at Walmart). Both of these 11.6-inch Chromebooks will retail for $149, making them the most affordable Chromebooks yet. Read more Also: Hands on: The $149 Hisense Chromebook succeeds at being incredibly affordable
