KDE Sound theme "Borealis"
Version 0.9a (11/14/2004)

OVERVIEW
========
The goal of this sound theme is to provide "better feel" through use of the subtle aural notifications. The test I always have in my mind while designing the desktop sounds is to imagine having half-dozen (or more) computer stations in the same office or studio and consider whether their simultaneous use (and resulting desktop sounds) would pose as distraction on users and their productivity. Therefore, in order to minimize the "distraction factor" this theme associates many of the common desktop events with brief, mostly non-pitched, but nonetheless pleasing sound sources (a.k.a. effects).

All of the sounds included have been composed (if applicable), recorded, and mastered by me (although a few of them bear resemblance to other OS's sounds). Some of them are leftovers from my previous compositional and production endeavors, while others are entirely new creations.

All sounds are designed and mixed at CD-quality (stereo, 16-bit, 44.1KHz). Ogg version is distributed as 192Kbit stereo files.

Thank you for your interest!


LICENSE
=======
See below.


FEATURES
========
*Includes sounds for:
*KDE WM
*KDE System Notifications
*Kdevelop
*Kopete
*KDE Sysguard
*KMail
*Konsole
*Proxy configuration
*K3b (missing 1 sound)
*4 startup sounds
*2 exit sounds
*Automated installer and uninstaller (KDE 3.x)

INSTALL
=======
IMPORTANT! installer has been tested only with KDE 3.x series.

Borealis comes with an automated install shellscript making the install a simple 2-step process:

1) Untar the package:
tar -jxvf Borealis_sound_theme-VERSION.tar.bz2

2) Install the theme:
cd Borealis/
su -p
(IMPORTANT! You must do 'su' with the '-p' flag in order to preserve your home dir variable while running as superuser)
sh install.sh

At this point simply follow the on-screen instructions and in a couple moments it should be all ready to go.

Optionally, you may also want to disable animation of minimizing/restoring windows as the theme sounds associated with these actions in my opinion work better when the animation is disabled. You can adjust this setting in the KControl -> LookNFeel -> Window Behavior -> Moving tab -> Animate minimize and Restore option.


UNINSTALL
=========
To uninstall Borealis theme simply use the uninstall.sh script included in the tarball:

sh uninstall.sh

Your votes, comments, and suggestions are most welcome and appreciated. Thanks!

Enjoy!

 Server problems...

 
 by SlipStreamScapes on: Apr 6 2005

Thanks all for your interest in "Borealis" sound theme. Unfortunately it seems that currently the university Linux server that is hosting this content is down. I am not sure whether this is due to university network issues or if the actual server is having problems. If the connection is not restored by tomorrow morning I will go check on the server.

In the meantime please accept my apologies for the inaccessibility of the content.

Best wishes,

Ico

 Server back up

Server is back up although strange noises are emanating from the HD so my guess is that it is on its last legs. Hence, grab the files while you can :-)

Hopefully, a new server will be set up soon.

Best wishes,

Ico

have you shortened the songs, because I like them being really long (maybe include long versions as well?)

Hi,

Thanks for your interest in the "Borealis" sound theme!

I am actually also using Kubuntu and haven't had any problems. Could you please provide me with specific steps you did as well as any errors that may show up? Other info (i.e. which version etc.) is also helpful.

Best wishes,

Ico

Hi,

Can you please be a bit more specific? Is this only with the ogg files or both wavs and oggs? If it is only an ogg issue, then it is likely something with your system setup. Otherwise, you may be talking about the reverberation that has been applied to the mix in order to make the sounds "warmer," Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for this either as it may be simply a matter of taste.

Thanks for your interest in the theme!

Best wishes,

Ico
