Description:

I appreciate system sounds a lot, I like that 'more alive' feeling they bring to my user experience. Since we usually spend a lot of time on a computer, all that can make that experience more pleasant is always welcome.

So I put together some quality sounds I've been finding these last couple of months to create what is for me the sound theme for an OS that suits me best. Sounds that are smooth and that I enjoy hearing and won't get annoying with time. So I called this compilation of sounds "Smooth".

I liked it so much that I thing it is worthy of sharing with you all.
I hope you enjoy it.

v1.0 - Initial release

- - -

Notes

- not all sounds will work on all operating systems, things vary from distro to distro and from desktop environment to desktop environment

- Includes 57 sound events, 3 alternatives for login sound, 2 alternatives for new e-mail message

- usually system sound events do not work out-of-the-box and you'll have to do some things in order for them to work. There's a file attached called "how to install on xfce.txt" that shows how they can be played on a Ubuntu based OS. For other desktop environments please browse and ask at forum supports how it can be done.

- usually system login and logout sounds are not played, you'll have to do some things for them to work. There's a file attached called "how to install on xfce.txt" that shows how them can be played. For other desktop environments please browse and ask at forum supports how it can be done.

- there are voice alerts for the following events: battery-caution, battery-full, battery-low, device-added, device-removed, message-sent-email, message-new-email, network-connectivity-error, network-connectivity-established, network-connectivity-lost, power-plug, power-unplug and power-unplug-battery-low.

- If you want the sound "_window-unminimized.oga" to be played, just remove the underscore (_) at the beginning of the name. I chose not to have it playing as a personal preference, since usually the sound "button-toggle-off.oga" is already played when you click to unminimize.

- "__desktop-login.oga and "_desktop-login.oga" are just alternative login sounds that I also loved. Along with the one "desktop-login.oga", just leave the one you wanna be played with the name "desktop-login.oga" and rename the others.

- if you find annoying the "incoming e-mail" voice alert played each time you have new mail, just replace "message-new-email.oga" with another sound. I already included one for you to change just like I mentioned for the desktop login sound, just rename "_message-new-email.oga" to "message-new-email.oga" so that one can be used instead.
I chose that alert because I need to be on the top of the e-mails I get so I really need something that won't make me miss them.

Enjoy!

pemartins, hi!
There is an issue with link again. I see, that opendesktop provides now a Nextcloud instance. You can open it with "grid" button on top of the page then "Storage" button. Could you please upload the archive to this cloud and share it? Or also you could use any other hosting, but this cloud seems more or less "native".

Just read your message. I think I was able to do it, let me know if it works for you like that. It's the link named "QrcjmXiTpqQsciE".

@pemartins, hi again! I suddenly have got an idea — since any sound in your soundpack is under very permissive licenses, you able to switch license of whole package to, lets say, CC-BY-4.0 or even copyleft CC-BY-SA-4.0 or some other. It will make the package more transparent in copy"right" field and more suitable to include it to GNU/Linux distributions. Someone, please, correct me if I wrong.

9 ++Very cool. I love the fact that this is on the AUR repository, for Arch Linux and all Arch based distros. Many thanks to both "PEMARTINS", the creator of the theme and to "bergentroll", the guy who put it on AUR.

Could you please make a mirror for this? I am trying to add your sound theme to Archlinux AUR and need a permanent link. The dl.opendesktop.org link seems changing time to time.

Sure I can! If I understand you need me to upload the file in a file hoster, I just uploaded it at Zippyshare and added the link to the download (file) information.
Please let me know if that is all you need or if I need to do something else.
Cheers!

Yeah, thank you, it's working now: https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/sound-theme-smooth/. Is Zippyshare hosts files for long term?

Actually it will be nice in my opinion if you decide to give a version number to your sound theme and split the documentation with the sound files. =)

I believe Zippyshare does not delete files from accounts, exception made for violation of terms, so the file should remain up for many years to come.

Version number attributed, named it 1.0.

"Split the documentation with the sound files", can you enlighten me on this one? Do you mean placing the documentation folder in a different place inside the package?

Great!
About documentation — yes, exactly. There is no problem with documentation directory, but it seems more suitable to put it outside of sound files however.

Done! I placed the documentation in the root dir of the theme.

Named it version 1.1 and also uploaded it to Dropbox instead of Zippyshare because I checked Zippyshare's current file deletion policy and they are deleting files which are not downloaded for more than 30 days. So please update your link at Archlinux to the dropbox link.

Cheers!
