Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Ambient Noise Player is an open-source application that enables the users to listen to sound of nature and relax. The environmental sounds are the sounds of forest, rain, fire, night, wind, sea, storm, coffee shop, etc.

In this article I will show you how to install Ambient Noise Player 0.0.18 on Ubuntu 15.04 Vivid Vervet, Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic Unicorn, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca, Linux Mint 17 Qiana, Linux Mint 13 Maya, Pinguy OS 14.04, Elementary OS 0.3 Freya, Deepin 2014, Peppermint Five, LXLE 14.04, Linux Lite 2 and other Ubuntu derivative systems.
Because it is available via PPA, installing Ambient Noise Player 0.0.18 on Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, Ubuntu 12.04 and derivative systems is easy. All you have to do is add the ppa to your system, update the local repository index and install the anoise, anoise-gui and anoise-community-extension1 packages. Like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:costales/anoise
$ sudo apt-get update

If you want to add your own ambient OGG, MP3, WAV sounds to be played by anoise, place them in /usr/share/anoise/sounds, for global usage or for the current user only, in ~/Anoise. Also, replace the spaces in the filename with underscores “_” .
Optional, to remove anoise, do:
$ sudo apt-get remove anoise anoise-community-extension1
