I am using Ubuntu 14.04. How to add custom alert sound in Ubuntu Unity ?

Note: my question is not how to play music via terminal. I can use play command from sox package.

Also not make-a-sound-once-process-is-complete

For better clarity this link may be useful add-your-custom-alert-sound-for.html


Personally I would use aplay /path/to/file as notification when a command is done with command && aplay /path/to/file, but there are multiple other options to do so. Check out these

  • I append && mplayer -really-quiet. – DK Bose Oct 19 '15 at 6:49
