Custom system sounds for linux mint 14

Postby dehahn1984 » Sat Nov 24, 2012 10:56 pm

So i want to install custom system sounds for my new linux mint 14 setup. I downloaded my files and placed them in usr/share/sounds . Im stuck at this point. I tried to look in my sounds settings but havnt found a way to change the sound theme to the one i placed in the sounds folder. Is their something im missing?

Support for sound themes was removed in gnome 3. You can still change it using the ubuntu-tweak application, which can be installed with

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/ppa
apt update
apt install ubuntu-tweak
