I would like to copy a new ringtone to my BQ Aquarius Ubuntu Edition. How can I copy ringtones from /home/phablet/Downloads to usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/ringtones/

Custom ringtones will arrive with OTA-9 (Jan 27 2016).

You can use the Terminal or File Manager to copy your files. Both can be found on "Ubuntu Store".

There is currently no UI to add new ringtones, and the preinstalled ones are stored in a read-only location. Once you are aware of the implications, you can try to set your phone in read-write mode
