Bare minimum, I find these binaural beats very relaxing.

I love to see this packaged in Ubuntu's next release; there's not much time left:

Please package this. It's good stuff.

Sbagen is program that "plays" sbg files.

So, if we get this packaged, the only objective is to get it to where, if you double click on an sbg file (in Nautilus), it will open a command window and run the sbg file using sbagen. The command windows should remain open as if the user navigated to that file using the terminal, and then typed:
sbagen /Path/To/File/FileName.sbg

I've attached an sbg file for you to test this with (see below).

I how that someone who knows how to, will get this packaged in Ubuntu. Currently I find it easier to just install the Windows version of sbagen using Wine; this makes it to where I can right-click on any .sbg file, and then click: "(Wine) Open With sbagen".

It would be nice if I could just type:
sudo apt-get install sbagen

and have this same ability using the linux version of the software.

I'm closing this out -- feel free to file an ITP (intent to package) with Debian, new software should go upstream, not downstream in Ubuntu :)

I'm not sure how to use debian's bug system. I'll have to figure that out; I'd like to help get this into the repository.
