I'd like to change default sound theme to ubuntustudio-sounds, but don't understand how to do this.


Type this into a Terminal (Dash->Terminal) window:

sudo apt-get install gconf-editor
gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/sound/theme_name "ubuntustudio" -t string
sudo gconftool-2 -s /desktop/gnome/sound/theme_name "ubuntustudio" -t string

Then reboot, and the ubuntustudio sound theme will be on!

  • It sounds like from a related question that this method did not work for that other person. – Knowledge Cube Nov 4 '11 at 2:16
  • It's different. It uses gconf instead of dconf. – MiJyn Nov 7 '11 at 14:58

Just remember to also add ubuntu studio sound theme

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntustudio-sounds
