Customizing Ubuntu, the final touch.

If you are like me, you have spend hours customizing ubuntu. You changed everything, from the themes to the fonts.

But chances are you forgot something: the system sounds.

Navigate to “system -> preferences -> sound” and click the second tab called “sounds”.

By default only the log out and log in sounds are activated, but more sounds can be enabled.

You can download some system sounds on gnome-look, but you could take any sound clip you want and use it.

You can install the sounds, by pressing the drop down menu next to the description and selecting the bottom option.

I’ve chosen the “twinkels” sounds, I like them because they remind of Final Fantasy.

The only limitation is that the file has to be a .wav file.

If the sound clip you like isn’t .wav, you can convert it using “sound converter” (it’s in the ubuntu repo’s).

    Wait, I thought Ubuntu was a vegetarian restaurant in Napa. By the way, its a very good restaurant.

    I’ve been trying to customize sounds in the Linux Mint main edition but it won’t let me and I was wondering if the Ubuntu Sound chooser could be installed on Mint? Thank you
