Install tones into /usr/share/sounds.. possible?

Is it possible (via an app) to install resources into /usr/share/sounds?

When placing them anywhere else seams to get confused with available music for the media player.

A quick look at the folder permissions shows read and execute perimissions only so the answer is no.

I guess I was hoping for some sort of process to accomplish this.

 

No way to stop customer installed ring / notification tones from being picked up by the Media Player's random play feature.   I wonder if there is a directory available that does hide from the media player.

Within your app's data folder would not be accessible.

True - Not even to be assigned as ring / notification tones.
