These are mp3 files with the extension .ogg

Weird!! Thanks for pointing that. I'll check whether to convert from those mp3s... or from wav.

Thank you very much, the theme is great.

These sounds are absolutely excellent. I wouldn't mind seeing a complete gnome/pidgin compatible set...

Here is what I get when I try to play the OGG files contained in your archive:

"The filename "Battery_Charging.ogg" indicates that this file is of type "Ogg multimedia". The contents of the file indicate that the file is of type "MP3 audio. etc., etc."

However, I can play your "ogg" files with mpg123 (they sound nice, by the way).

I think maybe you converted the wav files to mp3 instead of ogg by accident.

If you would be so kind, could you replace these with a set of ogg files?

Thank you. :)

oh, and to convert them, all you need to do is:

oggenc *

this will produce 44.1 Kbps (stereo) output

Ok no probleme. I did it with lame, which is an mpeg converter, isn't it ?

LAME encodes to mp3, which isn't the same as Ogg Vorbis. Ogg Vorbis is an open source audio format, as opposed to MP3, which is still tied up in patents.

What's in the update?

I like the sounds so far. I'm picky about the sounds I use. Good job.

To convert to ogg, install vorbis-tools and run oggenc -q5 "$in.wav" -o "out.ogg". -q5 is a value for the quality vs bitrate of the output file - play around with it and check out the resulting file sizes and sound qualities.

Thank you, that works. I'll add the OGG archive.

I'm really quite impressed. I don't use sound effects for much to be honest, but these are very good quality and skillfully done. You have my kudos :)
