Since I switched to Ubuntu 12.04 and then had to rely completely on LibreOffice I'd only missed one thing.
A program which could launch typewriter sounds while typing. For instance, in Windows I used this: http://www.colorpilot.com/soundpilot.html for a long time.
I learned that this other writing program: http://gottcode.org/focuswriter/ had the sounds but only for the program itself.
However, Focuswriter lacks in a lot of other respects, so I'd rather stay with Libre.
Any plans of adding optional typing sounds in LibreOffice in one of your updates? :-)
Or do you know if Ubuntu has any such plans to support the rhythm of creative writing?
I'd really like that!
There is a piece of software on Git that does this.
It needs the python-xlib package, so you'll need that first.
To download it, just run the following in the terminal:
wget -O keypress.tar.gz https://github.com/chrelad/keypress/tarball/master tar xvfz keypress.tar.gz && cd chrelad
Then to start it, run:
If you want to change the sound, open keypress.py and look for the line that reads:
Change key01.wav to the name of the alternative sound file.

I'd really like some kind of typewriter sound in LibreOffice. As the commenter above, I also used the Colorpilot and also tried Focuswriter, both without success.
