Tutorial: Add a custom sound to Gnome-Clocks

I was exploring the file system and stumbled on this way to set a custom sound for a Gnome-Clocks Alarm.
Basically what you need to do is put a oga/ogg file in ~/.local/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/ and NAME IT alarm-clock-elapsed.oga
But if you want to change more than just the alarm you can just copy /usr/share/sounds/* to /.local/share/sounds and you can change a bunch of other sound files as well. If you do it this way though, I recommend renaming the originals with parentheses(or with _ ) so if you want to change back you stiil can.
And hopefully :pray: @guido.gunther will get this into phosh-mobile-settings like he did with calls and texts.:+1:

This is the terminal shortcut to move all the sounds to .local If you only want the one sound file, just use line 4.

cp - r /usr/share/sounds/freedesktop/* ~/.local/share/sounds
cd ~/.local/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo
mv alarm-clock-elapsed.oga _alarm-clock-elapsed.oga_ 
mv ~/YOUR/PATH/TO/SOUND ~/.local/share/sounds/freedesktop/stereo/alarm-clock-elapsed.oga

Thats it. You should be good to go😀


And I don’t know if anyone else has figured this out but you can record ogg files gnome-sound-recorder with the Vorbis format
