Per something I found on the wiki somewhere, in the 'General' setup section
you can put something like "aplay -q /path/to/sound/file/soundfile.wav" in
the 'keypress application' area. This is a hack, but now that I have done
it it works quite well. Note that I had to restart the frontend application
to notice the change. Also note that it works for LIRC keypresses, not the
ones on the keyboard.
The knoppmyth link led me to a thread with some pretty cool sounds, but they
were a little obtrusive while browsing music.
I use the mediaportal software for myth-like functionality on my M$ Laptop.
Mediaportal (http://www.team-mediaportal.com/) has a really nice little
click sound for their cursor movements. I tried it in myth and it works
You can download thier butcher 2 theme at
and find the cursor.wav file in the sound directory (it is the same sound as
in the main program's theme, just a smaller download.)
I will also host the file for anyone that is too lazy, but please email me
right away if you think it is some kind of violation. I dont think so cuz
the project is open-source, and the dev's have been nice to me with other
things in the past.
let me know what you think about possibly putting this in the wiki. I
suppose I could ask permission from one of the MediaPortal dev's and see if
they'd allow our wiki to host the file or something.
