I run Windows 10 along with Ubuntu in dual boot mode but I want to change the windows default sound scheme to Ubuntu sounds. Is there any way to download and save these files in wav format so that I can customize windows 10 sound scheme.

  • You can convert it from oga to wav or mp3 using ffmpeg. – Kulfy Apr 19 '20 at 14:22
  • Where OGAs located?? – Huxoor Apr 19 '20 at 14:24
  • You can find them in Yaru theme sounds package. – Kulfy Apr 19 '20 at 14:28

If you have Ubuntu installed, you can find them in /usr/share/sounds/<theme>/stereo where <theme> can be replaced with Ubuntu (if using releases before 18.04) or Yaru (if using releases after 18.04).

Alternatively, you can download the corresponding packages from pool of archives to get Yaru theme sounds or Ubuntu sounds.

Once downloaded extract using

dpkg -x deb_name.deb

And navigate to /usr/share/sounds/<theme>/stereo. To convert the OGG or OGA sound to MP3, you can use ffmpeg. In order to convert all sounds in one go, you can use for loop. The below command will convert all OGA/OGG sounds into MP3 and save it into ~/Downloads/sounds.

mkdir ~/Downloads/sounds; for i in /path/to/sounds/*.{oga,ogg}; do ffmpeg -i "$i" ~/Downloads/sounds/"${i%.*}.mp3"; done
