Gentoo’s Binaural Beat

Gentoo’s Binaural Beat – A binaural beat is a combination of two differing frequencies broadcasted through headphones that produced a combined sensation. Ever since I was very very young, I’ve had pain problems in my ears. Years back I discovered that there are frequencies on tones that can have a soothing effect on the ears, binaural beat’s really provide help.

I’ve been using Gentoo coming on a year now and my ears thankfully have been pretty healthy yet lately I’ve had problems with painful noises. While, just offhandly exploring the web, I discovered Gnaural. Years back, I used a program that helped soothe my bad ears called SBaGen. I had forgotten all about it (I just remembered what it named). So I, trying to remember, scavenged the internet looking for it again. Well I located another similiar program (Gnaural) and it looked very very promising. Since I found this project on Sourceforge, I prayed that it also had a Linux version. Well, it turns out that it can be made for linux. I searched through bugzilla and surprisingly and to my great hapiness there was an ebuild for it. I, using a PPC processor now, began to think it may processor specific. I tried to build it and it did say that it was missing keyword, so I added the ~ppc keyword to the ebuild and it did build and Gnaural is on my laptop. My ears have been real bad lately so this turns out to be a real ear saver.

Gnaural Screen

I’ve posted my final screenshot that I had left from my MacBook and the best desktop I had to date. I used the Si Theme Pack metacity, Tango-M icons and the Desktop is Micro-Animals Elephant from This is near the same desktop I’m using now. The Si Theme is nice because it is now integrated with the gnome 2.2* customizablecolor scheme.
