It is important, then, that there be a unified and simplified way of organizing sounds. It should not be forgotten that the sounds should integrate with the looks of KDE4, they need to blend in. Context The contexts for a sound theme are (these are more or less placeholders as this schema is sorted out): Table 1. Sound Theme Contexts Name Description Directory System Events Sounds which are generally used to notify the user of events relating to the system, ie: startup, warning dialogs, etc system User Interface Events Sounds associated with the desktop environment, such as minimize, shade, or kicker events ui Misc. Application Events Sounds associated with application events, such as a successful cd burn, which don't fit within other categories application System Events A list for now Network events Critical Stop Default Beep Show Toolbar System Notification Table 2.
