Hi .. am extremely sorry for the delayed reply.. got really busy with some work.

I m on Kubuntu and manually set the sounds through the system settings.

Last i checked, this was in ubuntu's gsoc ideas page: "The ability to allowing the user to have custom sounds was removed in karmic. GNOME sound themes are a good idea, but are badly implemented/documented and a lack of utilities do not allow users to simply create a sound theme."

Unfortunately this project didnt get a gsoc slot this year. I hope someone is working on it.

btw. May be this tool can help you:

At the time of making, i wasn't aware of such specification. I simply used other sound themes as a template and made this one, but thanks for pointing it out.
I m putting together the next version of fLight with some minor changes(hope to get it out really soon), I promise to stick to the specifications this time so that all sounds will work by default :) - Jul 16 2010

Thanks for the compliment :)
and yes, the delete and device connect sounds play on my ubuntu 10.04. May be there was a problem with your downloaded file. The total size of the zip file is around 410KB. - Jul 07 2010

firstly thank you for your honest and critical opinions:

-- I don't like the delete sound. I think it's too aggressive, and there's no light or dark idea in it

hmm... i really couldnt use any notes to signify delete. however, will definitely look into the issue.

> The "disconnect" sound doesn't sounds like a "disconnect" sound as we're used to.

yes,at first even i added a "going down" type of sound for disconnect, but later purposefully changed it to something that says : "the device you ve disconnected is ready to use :)" (yes the smiley is part of the sound)

-- In general your sounds are too long.
For example the "success" is reaaaally long, whereas it has to be fast and easy to understand.

yes, i admit..right now "success" and error" are the 2 sounds,which feel really long because of the lot of echo i ve put in... i actually wanted make a "success" and "error" in 2-3 notes, but couldnt YET make the appropriate short sounds with the feel i wanted it to have. hence i added "beep" and "notify", as a temporary replacement.

>Your sounds don't have to be so long that they take the user's attention.
ya, "success" and "error" will be taken care of :)

>But as I said earlier, it's a really good set.
thank you again :) - Mar 23 2010
