This sound theme doesn't conform to the Freedesktop.org sound naming conventions, nor is there a index.theme file. How do we go about installing it?

I'd like to try these sounds, but I don't know how to extract this kind of file. What program shall I use to do this?

is it cool to put your submission in an archive format that a lot of people don't use? Kinda like a secret handshake or something?

3 words, "highest compression ratio"!

This is an extremely common format for compression, I don't know what you mea...

Oh...Your a WINDOWS User...well no wonder. Uncle billie didn't leave you anything but winzip under the tree this year?

LOL...just kidding dude. Believe it or not, I work with people that have never used MS Windows nor do they intend to. They cannot believe someone would actually pay for something that can be had for free...and perform without viruses as well...

Then there's the 3d desktop that Linux has had for years. Shame...I heard it didn't get included in this new Windows release either.

Most distributions have p7zip in their repo's. it its the POSIX version of 7zip.

It integrates with most archival programs

Linux is all about freedom. Freedom of choice and speech.

7-Zip is an open source alternative to propriotry software such as rar and zip. We should support it's usage.

Not to mention in the post before yours someone has gone to the trouble of providing a Wikipedia link which explains how to use it.

So install 7-zip and turn that frown upsidedown ")

*.7z is a 7-zip archive. There's the Windows version of the extractor at http://www.7-zip.org/ or the *nix version with packages for several distributions at http://p7zip.sourceforge.net/

Additional information can be found at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7-Zip

Hello,

Just to let you know that in 5 weeks time I will have finished my post grad course. So... will have plenty of time to make more Twinkles :D

If you have any particular requests, give me a message and I'll see what I can do.

I have sorted out a server too (thanks to Simon), so things should start improving in terms of file formats.

In the meantime, feel free to join the 'rar sucks' debate. It's getting quite hot and feisty ;)

Just to let you know that I have made some more twinkly sounds.

Thanks to everyone that has emailed/commented/downloaded/rated/generally been lovely.

Big thanks to Simon Bell for all the help and advice.

I am in the process of securing server space... so keep checking for updates :D

Oh, and... I will compress as a Tar.gz too. I don't want to use sucky things.

It's a suprize to find that on a site like this, people still use non-free file types to distribute files.

While it appears this sound set is nice, many of us won't ever hear it, only because you've chosen a non-free file type.

If you want wider acceptance... choose a free file type instead.

And KDE-LOOK.org admins... why even let that file type be uploaded in the first place?

I have now archived the sound files using 7-zip. Hope this will appeal to more people. Thank you for the advice.

rar is nonfree.

I totally agree here. If you want to reach the majority of the users here (open source/free software people), don't use proprietary file formats. Although there is an open-source variant of unrar, only works with RAR version 1 and 2, use a free (as in speech) format.

No, .tar.gz sucks in terms of compression (only sotres things), if you want COMPRESSION use 7z
