    Hi folks
    Does anyone know how to change the sound scheme in Mandriva?
    I just got a load of sounds from metal gear solid and I wanted to make them into my system sounds.

    Hi - copy all your new sound files into /usr/share/sounds . Then visit System>Control Centre>Sound & Multimedia>System Notifications . You should be able to see your sound files from in there, and select them for things like starting up/shutting down.

    All this assumes that you are using KDE. Hope this helps you.

    Tried doing that but it keeps saying I don't have permission to write to that folder.
