Adding own noise in "~/Anoise"

Asked by kellzap on 2015-04-10

I was wondering if you could add a little bit more detail on how to add your own noise. I created an Anoise folder in my home folder (since that's where searching for "~/Anoise" seemed to take me), and the application didn't seem to recognize that I had a sound in it. So i tried putting it in "/usr/share/anoise/sounds" and naturally I didn't have writing permissions.

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 MATE and was trying to add a .WAV file is that helps.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, could you run this command in a terminal and paste here the exit?
ls ~/ANoise
Remember is the N in uppercase :)
Thanks in advance

I entered the command and got:

ls: cannot access /home/kellzap/ANoise: No such file or directory

OK, then you don't have that folder :) There is where you have to copy
your sound files.

Run this command:
mkdir ~/ANoise

Then, you'll have a new folder: /home/kellzap/ANoise
Copy your sounds in .ogg, .mp3 or .wav in there :)

I'm thinking that you created the folder as "~/Anoise". Linux is sensitive to upper case ;)
