Re: Ubuntu startup sound for 14.04 LTS


Hey Rick!

To be clear, I'm a composer, not a sound designer, so when I say "startup sounds," I'm thinking something musical. I'll leave the UI sounds and other alert sounds to someone more capable. Unless of course, they all take a musical route. :)

I could just whip up some stuff and submit it (to whom, I wouldn't know). I'm looking for a more official channel, as in, someone who could take the work I've done, say "yes, this will do" and then officially make it part of 14.04 LTS. What is that process like?

Hi Sam,

I'm sure there are all sorts of things that would benefit from sound
design. From apps to the system sounds like start up sounds.

Ubuntu is open to all sorts of contributors. Hopping on a mailing list
is a great start. Essentially, you are asking to join the Ubuntu
Community. Which is great, because it's open to anyone. Here's a link
for getting started with the Ubuntu Community:

Check out especially the community structure and Code of Conduct parts.


Cheers, Rick

Hey all,

My name is Sam Hulick, and I've been writing music for ten years
professionally, and longer than that experimentally. ;) I'm most known for
my work on the Mass Effect video game trilogy, but have several other game
credits as well as some film work (most recently a PBS documentary).

As it happens, I'm also a huge Ubuntu fan (writing right now from a ThinkPad
S431 running 13.04!). I'd love to contribute a new startup sound (or sounds)
to be included in 14.04 LTS. If anyone could put me in touch with the proper
person, I'd appreciate it!
