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.
