Hi everybody,

it's a bit weird if i select jolla-ringtone in the settings menu, the one which is played if a actual call is received is completly different from the one in the preview. Does it come from the red other half? And how to change it to the actual selected ringtone.

Ok, looks like precreated ambiences cannot be changed in any way. Which is a bit annoying because I like "The First One" theme but not the ringtone for incoming call. Is it possible to duplicate a predefined ambience as a new one?

An easy workaround to set your prefered sounds for a precreated ambiance is to move/rename the '/sounds'-folder and the 'sound.index'-file inside the '/usr/share/ambience/ambience-.../'-folder.

Example for 'Keira-Black' ambience:

  • Open a Terminal and become root.
  • Rename/move file an folder:

cd /usr/share/ambience/ambience-black/

mv sounds.index sounds.index.old

mv sounds sounds.old

From now on you can use the system-ui-settings to define your sounds for this precreated ambience. This is how the 'Snow White'-ambience works (it has no own sounds).

  • If you want to undo changes:

cd /usr/share/ambience/ambience-black/

mv sounds.index.old sounds.index

mv sounds.old sounds

I think this way is shorter and more practical/flexible than editing the 'sounds.index'-file and copy soundfiles into '/usr/share/.../sounds'-folder ...

Ok, ambience is overwritting the default tones. But how to change the ringtone in an ambience?

Because there shows up only ringtone volume menu under ambience in my jolla :-/.

I watched this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELMztxUHFjc and even the swiping from the side in homescreen or lock does not work for me.

Ok, this is not as self-explaining as the other functions. To have the swipe function you must mark more ambiences as favourites. But ringtone selection does still not work.
