Hello Linux Geeksters. Today, Canonical has released the default set of sounds which will be used on Ubuntu Touch. The set contains 8 notification sounds and 19 ringtones.
The Ubuntu Touch Sounds 13.10 have been added to the default repositories of Ubuntu 13.10 and can also be downloaded from launchpad.
To install and listen the Ubuntu Touch Sounds 13.10 on Ubuntu Saucy, all you have to do is:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install ubuntu-touch-sounds
For previous Ubuntu version and other Linux systems, you have to download the sounds archive and extract it, in order to listen to the new sounds:
$ wget -c https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/saucy/+source/ubuntu-touch-sounds/13.10/+files/ubuntu-touch-sounds_13.10.tar.gz
$ tar -xzvf ubuntu-touch-sounds_13.10.tar.gz
$ cd ubuntu-touch-sounds-13.10
Next, play the sounds from the notifications and ringtones directories, in your default music player.
For those who don’t know yet, both Ubuntu Touch and Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander will be released on the 17th of October. Ubuntu Touch 1.0 (or Ubuntu Touch 13.10) will be the first Ubuntu version that runs Mir as default, as a replacement for the good old X.Org display server. For now, the Ubuntu mobile OS is officially supported only on the Google Nexus smartphones and tablets, despite the fact that there were some experiments of porting Ubuntu Touch on Xperia Tablet Z and OPPO Find 5, done by third party Ubuntu enthusiasts,.
